The whole point of this book is that "Dwarves are revolting!" and that's a terribly racist thing to say! Just look at Peter Dinklage. He ain't half bad looking. Although, I wouldn't be saying that if he'd gotten his nose chopped off like he was supposed to!


Okay, I'll be serious. The plot revolves around the realm's dwarven guard who are in revolt. They plan a surprise attack on the castle to supplant the ruling humans. In this choose-your-own-adventure styled book, you play the role of human pea

Un niño y su perro contra una conspiración para derrocar a un rey. La premisa es muy interesante y el desarrollo, pese a tornarse algo infantil para el público juvenil, es muy divertida. Sin embargo, es un libro atípico dentro de la colección e incluso dentro del mundo D&D, dejando un claro ejemplo en los enanos, que se parecen más al ejercito mongol que invadió China (el de Mulan) , tanto en su descripción como en el diseño de las ilustraciones, que a los enanos habitualmente conocidos de l ...more

When I was a kid I remember this book as being one of least favorites, although upon re-reading I can't for the life of me understand why. There are three separate possible adventures to follow, all three are wildly different and all three have their share of choices. Granted, most of the choices are pretty obvious as to which choice is the right one, but it's still fun.

Amazingly, you are not a dwarf in this (let's be generous) novel; you are an elf. And you, elf, encounter not only dwarves. No. There are also gelatinous cubes.

And, alas, no Ogre Battle:

Come tonight! Come to the ogre site! Come to ogre-battle-fight!

A fun book! You get to choose what happens next every few pages. Lots of different endings. Only takes about 30 minutes max to read. We're going back to the bookstore to buy the rest of the set. They are ancient. This one is from 1983.

I read this book when I was a kid. I actually won it; I entered some AD&D drawing and a few weeks later this little runner-up prize arrived in the mail. I loved this book, it was fun to read and I liked the illustrations.

Loved this book as a preteen and still reread it from time to time. I think I'll purchase the rest of this set.

This little D&D inspired CYOA styled book is a bit too coy for its own good. I imagine the target audience is an eight year old boy, sure. But even for said demographic, the adventure may prove mildly entertaining, but only just. Even a young boy might be bored with the subject matter here. One spends more time talking to giddy pixies and dealing with a puppy, rather than outwitting nasty dwarves and staving off a rebellion. The challenge is simple as well, I hit upon the best ending via my ...more

While missing volumes 2-4 of the Endless Quest series, I'd previously read the first (Dungeon of Dread) and found it to be rather long on prose and short on choice. Revolt of the Dwarves has less of a problem with not giving opportunities to decide which path to take, but unfortunately the vast majority of those choices end up being illusory.

Revolt of the Dwarves essentially has three paths that start near the beginning of the book. Two of those paths plow straight toward their ending, while th

The "right" choice is usually easy to guess, but the results are still always surprising.
