    Rescue the Good Guy, and Kill the Bad Guy 3 February 2013 Finally a good old mappable dungeon crawl, though I must say that it does not come anywhere near the original Fighting Fantasy books. This was because I had pretty much collected everything that I needed before actually entering the dungeon, and when I was in the dungeon I simply made a number of random choices as to which way to go, and was able to finish the book without having to pretend that I had something that I didn't. I do like the Rescue the Good Guy, and Kill the Bad Guy 3 February 2013 Finally a good old mappable dungeon crawl, though I must say that it does not come anywhere near the original Fighting Fantasy books. This was because I had pretty much collected everything that I needed before actually entering the dungeon, and when I was in the dungeon I simply made a number of random choices as to which way to go, and was able to finish the book without having to pretend that I had something that I didn't. I do like the older ones where the choices as to which passage you go along were a lot fewer, and when you end up going along one path you may, or most likely won't, find one of the key items that enable you to complete the adventure. I suspect that by these books people weren't spending all that much time with them and in a way wanted to be able to complete it in one sitting (this took me probably about three hours) but at least it was a little more possible to map this one, and more easy to orientate my way around it than some of the other ones (such as The Chasms of Malice). However, it is a little bit of a shame that all of the items that you need (and you do not necessarily need a specific item to complete the book) can be purchased in one location. The story is that a good wizard has been kidnapped by an evil wizard who wants to take over the world (don't all evil wizards want to do that?) and while most of them involve you going after the evil wizard to kill him, you are told that the prisoner and the evil wizard are in two different locations. However you, being the hard core adventurer, want to take out the evil wizard because you will receive heaps of glory and honour in doing so. However your mission is to actually locate and free the good wizard. As I mentioned before, at this stage pretty much all the Fighting Fantasy books have become very similar and do not have the originality, and difficulty, of the earlier books. They also feel a little rushed (though little is probably being too nice a word). However this adventure does have everything, from an over ground romp, to an dungeon crawl, to an outerworld domain in which you must locate and kill the bad guy (which means you do land up getting your kudos).

    Stealer of Souls is not bad. Unfortunately, it's not exactly memorable either. Unfortunately the Fighting Fantasy series abunds with dungeon crawling experiences and so this one, although it does its honest job by presenting a fair challenge and being well written with some occasional nice flourishes, it's not very unique in its plot. It doesn't have silly or awkward moments, and it's by no means a bad title but there are several titles I'd recommend reading before giving this one a go. Stealer of Souls is not bad.

    Coming fresh from a later Keith Martin-Russ Nicholson effort, #51 Island of the Undead, I again found myself on a boat to an island, again wandering around that island, and again negotiating a dungeon crawl. This was Keith Martin’s first FF (1988) and, though there’s nothing really wrong with it, it falls short in terms of story, atmosphere and interest. This is one of the ones I had first time around but I found I remembered nothing whatsoever from it - except that cool, evocative cover by David Coming fresh from a later Keith Martin-Russ Nicholson effort, #51 Island of the Undead, I again found myself on a boat to an island, again wandering around that island, and again negotiating a dungeon crawl.

This is one of the ones I had first time around but I found I remembered nothing whatsoever from it - except that cool, evocative cover by David Gallagher. I’m beginning to think that, rather than a result of growing up, it was the FF 30s that led me to become bored with the series and abandon it (and, stupidly, to get rid of all my books). Stealer of Souls is back-to-basics FF, and very easy as well (I got through it on my first attempt). At a push it might just about qualify as a well-spent morning.

    Without doubt, the best of the 30 something series, as this book is like an old school type Fighting Fantasy like Citadel of Chaos and Temple of Terror, you fight a good load of encounters, no instant deaths and towards the end you get to use magic, before facing the evil Mordranath for a jolly good fight to the Death, really enjoyed this one.
