bello, avvincente, tenebroso, misterioso, ottima l'ambientazione e la fantasia della location. una delle avventure più belle di Lupo Solitario ricca di personaggi ben descritti, tante alternative e un bel finale.

Best one yet! Even with all the skills and kit I'd gathered from previous adventures it was still DAMN hard, and not in the "instant death" method of the previous book. I was almost constantly on low heath, always looking for a break, edge of the seat stuff!

This is probably my least favorite (so far) in the series. The adventure continues and there's some battling going on, you need to fight or flee and then there's a dungeon to be explored. I like the battling and gaining experience, but the story seemed a little repetitive and rehashed (either that or I'm just getting tired of this series). It's still pretty fun though, interactive reading will always be cool and the adventure is still interesting.

This part of the Lone Wolf gamebook series deals with a dungeon setting - sneaking into a place of evil and then getting back out. There are quite a few interesting foes in this book and the story is lined with a few challenging puzzles. Overall, a well-written story with a good sense of pace and progress.
Dungeon setting. The book seemed short, or I somehow went the short path through. The setting was less epic than previous books. All books in the series free and online in a game-book player here:
Death Count:
Book 1: Died 9 times

Book 5: No deaths
Book 6: Died 4 times
Book 7: Died 3 times
Altro caposaldo della mia infanzia che mi ha permesso di trascorrere ore in allegria.
Il castello maledetto non è un luogo particolarmente originale, ma l'idea del labirinto senza armi con cui difenderti è un ottimo escamotage per tenerti sempre all'erta.
Bella, ma difficile, la battaglia finale contro l'antagonista principale.

After the more novel-like plots of the previous books I was disappointed that this one is just a dungeon crawl, but as dungeon crawls go it's an entertaining one with a good feeling of danger and tension.

Beaucoup d'action et de combats épiques. L'histoires ne fait pas partie des meilleurs, mais elle est tout de même intéressante. Assez difficile!
