The First Book in the Fighting Fantasy game book series by Ian Livingston and Steve Jackson
Addictive and impossible to put down would be the quickest way to describe this series of books. Part fantasy story and part strategy game you become part of the book you read. Not unlike the computer games where you are given special powers and skills and you have to complete a task, this series of books has the added benefit (from a parental view) that reading and imaginative skills are honed along side the fighting skills of your imaginary hero. Realistically these books will tend to suit boys more than girls. This is the first in the series and there are now over 20 in the series. Perfect to keep them occupied over the summer holiday.
The Warlock of Firetop Mountain is the first book in the Fighting Fantasy gamebook series, written by Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone, and originally published in 1982. The book is a fantastic dungeon crawl -- with the main character seeking to kill a warlock and take his treasure.
"Relaunched and as gripping as ever, fans of role-playing adventures will lap [these books] up."
"Bound to appeal to fans of the fantasy worlds of Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings."
