"INVITATION TO A FEAST" REVIEWED ON GAMEBOOKS.ORG

Those who consider themselves true fans of the gamebook genre will, most likely, be aware of the internet site called "Demian's Gamebook Web Page".  This site, run by Demian Katz, is, in gamebook circles, a very well known international reference guide to interactive books of all types.  Here you will find lists (and descriptions) of many gamebooks published over the past 30 years or so.  Some notable series examples include:

Choose Your Own Adventure

Fighting Fantasy

Lone Wolf

As well as the lists themselves, the site also contains links to official pages and unofficial pages as well as on-site reviews.

There are many different reviewers that contribute their time to the site, as well as Demian.  It is Demian himself, however, who has recently written a review for the first book in the Woodland Forest Chronicles series, Invitation to a Feast.

"...a respectable start to the series, and I'll be interested to see how things develop from here." - Demian Katz - www.gamebooks.org
