'Lone Wolf: Book 1: Flight from the Dark' - Fantasy Game Book Review
‘Lone Wolf: Book 1: Flight from the Dark’ – Game Book Review - Friday Fantasy Show – Episode 192.
Who doesn’t love a good quest? Thought so. The Bottled Imp steps into the game book world of ‘Lone Wolf: Book 1: Flight from the Dark’ written by Joe Dever and illustrated by Gary Chalk.
I must admit, these series of game books passed me by when they were first published way back in 1984. Not quite sure I missed them as they’ve gone on to sell over 9 million copies worldwide!
It wasn’t until a Bottled Imp fan asked if I’d be reviewing them that I discovered this vast and varied game book series. To date twenty-nine titles have been published spanning a thirty-two year time.
We had the privilege to interview Joe at the UK Games Expo in 2016 in June, and we found him to be gentleman, passionate about fantasy and writing. Joe sadly passed away in November that year. We feel very blessed to have met him, albeit, for a brief moment.
‘Flight from the Dark’ sets up this game book series. You are Lone Wolf. In a devastating attack the Darklords have destroyed the monastery where you were learning the skills of the Kai Lords. You are the sole survivor and have sworn revenge.
