I had looking forwards for this softcover, but it kinda failed them all. The actual play wasn't bad, but I felt that this was a cheap(ish) imitation of The Chronicles of Narnia. The plot was dry and rushed, things didn't connect as they should've, there were times I was thinking "how could these kids be so stupid?" or "how is it possible that these kids know so much?". But don't let me turn you off from this softcover—there was plenty of furor, action, not to mention impossible positions that kinda have you on the hem of your footing linger to see if they actually survive (but of course you know they will), as long as you don't care about any of the other points I mentioned it's lacking in.
