New Bloodbones review

Another review of Bloodbones has appeared on Amazon - and a very pleasing review it is too...

This is is a tremendously exciting book. The narrative grips you from the start with its exciting storyline and the illustrative backstory and characterisation mean that you really care about the unfolding plot. I particularly like the 'codeword' system which means that the book is constantly monitoring your progress and gives it a non-linear feel. I also liked the fact that the battle sequences were not overly complex - yet the author still added unique touches every now and then to certain creatures where appropriate which heightened the sense of realism and immersion. The book was brilliantly structured - having a definite 3 act beginning, middle and end (often lacking in many gamebooks) - and what an ending! - be prepared for a rollercoaster ride! Congratulations to the author on reinvigorating this series - I really look forward to more books from him.
