    Woohoo Go ahead and choose your own adventure Sky s the limitjust as long as you choose the adventure the author wants you to choose, and don t even think about the sky I ve read a fair number of these types of books, but I don t think I remember reading onelinear Don t get me wrong, it s a nice read and a fun adventure, but if you ve come here seeking freewill, forget about it Rose Estes second Endless Quest book, Mountain of Mirrors, strives to put readers aimed at kids into the Woohoo Go ahead and choose your own adventure Sky s the limitjust as long as you choose the adventure the author wants you to choose, and don t even think about the sky I ve read a fair number of these types of books, but I don t think I remember reading onelinear Don t get me wrong, it s a nice read and a fun adventure, but if you ve come here seeking freewill, forget about it Rose Estes second Endless Quest book, Mountain of Mirrors, strives to put readers aimed at kids into the body of an unassuming elf forced into a dangerous, frozen wilderness as your village s last hope in braving Herculean perils in order to open the mountain pass for caravans and save your people from starving.That sounds promising, but the premise is a shaky at best Your village has already sent a bunch of warriors out to see what s holding up the caravans None of them have returned alive, so your village elders think the wise choice is to send just you, one little elf, to see what could possibly be wrong Brilliant Okay it s a kids fantasy book, so I ll quit with the cynicism and just go along for the ride Before you start your adventure and get to make your first choice, you must wade through the absolute longest intro I ve ever seen for one of these books Then your first choice turns out to be an obvious go home ending or continue the story non decision, after which you must read another lengthy stretch of pages And after that you think you ve come to an actual freewill choice of three options only to discover one of them is an immediate dead end, the second is a loop back to the same spot and only the third allows the story to continue So far you ve done a poopload of reading and not truly made your first real choice in deciding the fate of the tale That s irritating Now for a little praise after all my negativity This is a very nice fantasy set up and setting The prose is passable for the most part The scenes are decent and descriptions are good The monsters have character and that s fun There s some action, not a lot, but you re allowed to fight and kill and so that s nice Larry El and Jim Holloway, provided great illustrations, as per usual Mountain of Mirrors has a lot going for it, it s just that making your own choices doesn t enter into it as much as you d like It seems Estes had a book in mind with one particular ending and she shoe horned it into this choose your own adventure format Makes for essentially a decent fantasy novel, but it s no fun as a choose your own adventure.Here are the adventures I went on while rereading this for review purposes 1 In my first attempt, I chose to stand and fight a bunch of orc guards instead of taking the other two options which amounted to fleeing, yet my fight choice had me fleeing anyway, fleeing right the frick back home That s annoying 2 This time I discovered the monsters are using slaves to mine diamonds in the mountains, so that s what s happened to all my villager buddies But this whole storyline doesn t go anywhere It either ends with you running home, dying, or loops back upon the story and forces you to head down a flight of stairs into a misty valley Just to spite the author, I intentionally killed myself So there 3 Okay fine, I ll take the stairs I immediately ran into someorc guards Talking with them won t get you very far, apparently.4 On this adventure I made it down into the misty valley Nice Wonderlandy type of setting, this No seriously, this might be Wonderland There s a mushroom forest and minxy lynx Sounds vaguely familiar Anywhooo A big ol frost giant and his pet white dragon come along, so I hid behind some talking ice clumps, which turned out to be very important talking ice clumps Then I tried to save a halfling s life and ended up as dragon food 5 Screw the halfling this time I used a magic diamond to bring the house down, kill all the baddies and save the dayHUZZAH

    This book was my introduction to the Endless Quest series as an 11 year old boy and in my opinion the best of the series, or at least of the ones I have read You play a young elf sent on a quest to the Mountain of Mirrors as your peoples supply trains have been disappearing You quickly discover a number of your kind being slaughtered Soon you find that the Mountain of Mirrors holds manysecrets than anyone imagined.This Choose Your Own Adventure type fantasy is based in a generic Dung This book was my introduction to the Endless Quest series as an 11 year old boy and in my opinion the best of the series, or at least of the ones I have read You play a young elf sent on a quest to the Mountain of Mirrors as your peoples supply trains have been disappearing You quickly discover a number of your kind being slaughtered Soon you find that the Mountain of Mirrors holds manysecrets than anyone imagined.This Choose Your Own Adventure type fantasy is based in a generic Dungeons and Dragons universe but it reads like an original creation There are a number of original creatures and some pretty good characterization for this type of series The adventures are a bitrealistic and down to earth than I expected but I think that plays to the author s strengths so it works well Several interesting concepts are introduced here and so I wished for a sequel as a child but there will never be one coming The GOOD great characterization, realistic adventures, good art, and intriguing concepts.The BAD rushed in a few places, some choices aren t logical

    A lotlimited in some ways than Dungeon of Dread, this one features fewer locations and longer stretches of descriptive text without any choices The location isinteresting, but there is far less exploration here than in the prior Endless Quest book Some fine ideas for an adventure, but will require a fair bitDM input to make this one work.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here My feelings about this early Endless Quest book are somewhat mixed The Endless Quest series were choose your own adventure style books based on the Dungeons Dragons role playing game To my mind the first one Dungeon of Dread, was the best This one has some good features, but just doesn t quite manage to maintain the same level of interest for me.The first problem I have with this book as compared to the other one is that, rather than allowing the reader to pretend to be an adult adventu My feelings about this early Endless Quest book are somewhat mixed The Endless Quest series were choose your own adventure style books based on the Dungeons Dragons role playing game To my mind the first one Dungeon of Dread, was the best This one has some good features, but just doesn t quite manage to maintain the same level of interest for me.The first problem I have with this book as compared to the other one is that, rather than allowing the reader to pretend to be an adult adventurer with experience of the fantasy world, it, like all too many choose your own adventure books, has the reader portray a young adult on their first adventure away from their own village According to the opening paragraph, you are an elf named Landon You are 270 years old Since elves live to be about 1200 years old, you are still in your early teens in human years Mathematically, that has never sounded right to me 270 is 22.5% of 1200 Surely, we are past our early teens when we have lived out 22.5% of our natural lifespan But, apart from that, those 270 years of elf life experience are totally ignored, and you are basically a 13 year old character throughout the book This is unfortunately the direction that all the Endless Quest books went from here on in.That s a relatively minor quibble, though The real problem with this book as a choose your own adventure becomes obvious as you read through the opening 22 pages before you get to make your first decision By that time, you ve already had two encounters with monsters and one pitched battle has been decided The rest of the book goes pretty much the same You make that first decision and either 1 the book ends, or 2 you read on for another nine pages and another monster encounter before coming to another false choice only one of the three options allows you to proceed It s as if the author couldn t come up with a way to make multiple adventures possible in the short space allotted, so just came up with one fairly simple trajectory and a lot of dead ends This is disappointing, because the first book allowed you to explore several different pathways in the dungeon, even though they all led either to defeat or a single climax The Mountain of Mirrors has only one storyline, with one minor sidetrack along the way.That said, the storyline is pretty cool, and I liked it a lot when I was a kid As Landon, you are sent out from your mountain village to determine why caravans are no longer coming through the pass and you find that the mountain has been occupied by monsters, including orcs, goblins, ogres, a frost giant, and a young white dragon, who are plundering it for diamonds and attacking the caravans and enslaving anyone who comes across the pass You find that you cannot free most of the slaves, who are hypnotized or zombified somehow Then you meet the guardians of the Mountain of Mirrors, who are sort of rock like creatures that ask you to use a huge diamond to reflect sunlight and melt the ice pillar that supports the mountain You find some recently taken prisoners and a blink lynx to help you out and make your way to a vast whirlpool, perform your task and melt the ice, destroying the mountain and all the monsters, but managing to escape safely yourself Or, you make a false choice and start over It s undeniably a good story, andcreative than a lot of the Endless Quest storylines, it just doesn t hold up well as a choose your own adventure, especially if, like me, you play it over and over again for decades

    This one tells a story if you make all the right choices If you don t, then you won t get the good ending, but one of the lesser endings, or one of the ones where you die.

    The village of Aralia has been cut off from the Land Beyond the Mountains Now, a young elf named Landon has accepted mission to cross Shanafria, the Mountain of Mirrors, to bring help to the city before winter arrives Armed with the Sword of Magus, Landon is about to discover the danger which lurks within the Mountain of Mirrors and free his people if he can survive the darkness within.Written by Rose Estes, Dungeons Dragons Endless Quest Book 2 Mountain of Mirrors was part of Dungeons Dr The village of Aralia has been cut off from the Land Beyond the Mountains Now, a young elf named Landon has accepted mission to cross Shanafria, the Mountain of Mirrors, to bring help to the city before winter arrives Armed with the Sword of Magus, Landon is about to discover the danger which lurks within the Mountain of Mirrors and free his people if he can survive the darkness within.Written by Rose Estes, Dungeons Dragons Endless Quest Book 2 Mountain of Mirrors was part of Dungeons Dragon s answer to the popular Choose Your Own Adventure series of books Following Dungeons Dragons Endless Quest Book 1 Dungeon of Dread, the series was often collected at the time of its publication in sets.With video games at their fledgling state and Dungeons Dragons at its popularity peak, the Endless Quest books were a bit of a combination of RPG games, fantasy, and reading An RPG game didn t exist at this point so reading one was about as good as it could get If a kid was challenged to read, the choose your own adventure style of writing was great to encourage reading.This volume like most volumes starts out with a general description of your character The story is a bit harder to get right than the first volume of the series and there seems to be two distinct paths to take One path leads to the destruction of the mountain which seems to be the correct path and the other path has you killing a leader called Tsimmis to escape Part of the fun of the books however is choosing wrong and leading your character to a grisly death.What I enjoyed about this seriesso than some of the Choose Your Own Adventure series was the illustrations With a fun cover by Larry El and interior illustrations by Jim Holloway, the book always had you looking through the illustrations even if you didn t do the quest you wanted to read the book to see how the illustrations tied into the story.Dungeons Dragons Endless Quest Book 2 Mountain of Mirrors is by no means a great work of science fiction or fantasy, but it is a good starter for young fantasy readers or kids who need extra motivation to read The format of the books might not be as popular as they were when they were invented with computers, games, and real roleplaying games, but they still can entertain a young reader by providing some mild scares and thrills Dungeons Dragons Endless Quest Book 2 Mountain of Mirrors was followed by Dungeons Dragons Endless Quest Book 3 Pillars of Pentegarn

    Nos encontramos con una historia interesante, aunque no para tirar cohetes Lo bueno de este libro es que nos permite elegir m ltiples opciones muchas de ellas nefastas d ndonos m s libertad de historia que otros libros de la colecci n que poseen una mayor linealidad, pero lo malo es que ni el personaje ni la historia son demasiado originales.Aun as , es divertido y cada obra de esta colecci n merece la pena.

    Yes, it s another D D Endless Quest book I ve decided it s time to re read all of them Still lots of fun, and from an adult perspective oddly dark in some of the endings There don t seem to be as many different paths in this one, but I do like the fact that the frost giant on the front cover is in a classic WWE finger pointing pose Yes, it s another DD Endless Quest book I ve decided it s time to re read all of them Still lots of fun, and from an adult perspective oddly dark in some of the endings There don t seem to be as many different paths in this one, but I do like the fact that the frost giant on the front cover is in a classic WWE finger pointing pose
