"Dakomyd, vieni avanti che non ti temo!"

Non è vero, da piccolo mi feci la caccona addosso quando arrivai al cospetto del tremendo Dakomyd, improbabile guardiano nelle reti fognarie che fa la muffa nel proteggere la Pietra della Sapienza.
Ma poi, effettivamente, perché una creatura così ancestrale e potente dovrebbe stare lì a grattarsi lo scroto?
Non ha importanza: epica battaglia con gli scarsissimi PV (Punti Vita), sano culo per uscirne indenni e tornammo tutti a riveder le

I really like this book. I feel like it's a nice change of pace from the rest of the series. No one's specifically trying to kill you, you're not on any particular deadline, you haven't been sent by anyone. You're seeking out something that you want, on your own initiative, and no one's trying to stop you or beat you to it.

The closest there is to a primary antagonist is Roark, and he hasn't been sent by the forces of darkness to hunt you down, he's just an arsehole. It's not clear he even knows

sicuramente interessante il nuovo personaggio di Lupo Solitario con i poteri aumentati. La storia non è niente di che, un tranquillo viaggio in cui facciamo la conoscenza del simpaticissimo mago Cirillo, ma nessuna emozione degna di nota. C'è persino l'assenza di un nemico finale come voleva la tradizione dei precedenti libri. in compenso lupo solitario in questo libro avrà molto a che fare con soldi e compravendite varie.

One of the better ones of the entire series. This is the turning point of the series from the Kai to the Magnakai - or in other words, you're levelling up! The basic abilities from the first 5 books are now getting upgraded powers.

It's not just the mechanics are getting an upgrade, but also the lore. Lone Wolf is finally taking the battle to them as the hunt for the lorestones truly begins. You're thrust into civil unrest among the darklords, hence lots of flavour material, making for a really g

Okay this may be one of the most kick-ass books in the series because in this book the reader/player get to learn a new skill: your Magnakai abilities! Woo-whoo!!! On the plus side, that means more ways to defeat the enemy; but on the down side, it means the enemies will be harder to defeat. But no matter what, there's amazing adventure waiting to be had, villains to vanquish and tasks to overcome. Let the fun commence!

I didn't know this was a role-playing "Choose Your Own Adventure"-type before I picked it up for 50 cents. I had to calculate combat points, choose weapons, and play with random number tables and action charts. I only read until I came out victor at the end because I kept cheating in order to survive and then the fun was lost on me. But for those interested in this sort of thing (you know who you are), it would be fun to re-read.

Très bien encore une fois. Deux petits défauts: il manque un peu d'action au début, mais il se reprend bien vers la fin ; on ne ressent pas totalement la puissance de notre nouveau rang, on se retrouve même parfois défavorisé par le manque de nos nouvelles compétences, un peu comme si nos anciennes ne comptaient plus, ou très peu.

This is the first book my father bought for me when I was 6. I still have it. Since 2007, it sports the author Joe Dever's autograph.
I can't really give a review, it's just too important an item of my life. I owe the birth my love for reading to this book.

Few too many instant deaths in this one, and not enough challenge in other areas.

Read this series years ago and want to get the set and re-read them to see if they're as good as I remember. (Childhood nostalgia).
'Seek and find the Lorestone of Varetta, for this alone holds the power and the wisdom...'

Three years after the events in Shadow on the Sand, Lone Wolf, having studied The Book of the Magnakai, begins his quest to restore the Kai to their former glory. The first step that must be undertaken is to locate and recover the legendary Lorestone of Varetta. Fantasy hi-jinks ensue.

This was an enjoyable return to the series, and feels rather expansive. Lone Wolf is venturing between warring city states
