The Eye of Winter’s Fury by Michael J Ward

eyewinterfuryThe Eye of Winter’s Fury is the third Destiny Quest book (“where Fighting Fantasy meets World of Warcraft”) Orion/Gollancz £16.99). This is one of those choose-your-own-adventure books where you hop around this large volume attempting to survive to the end.

“War is coming to Valeron. From the west, the blood-thirsty Wiccans burn and pillage their way towards the capital — where an ill and ineffectual king is beset on all sides by the scheming of ambitious men. His youngest son, Prince Arran, untested in combat and na?ve to ways of the world, is sent on a fool’s errand — to convince a cowardly lord to honour his oath and defend the realm from its enemies. But the real threat is yet to be revealed…

You are Prince Arran, son of Leonidas and second heir to the throne of Valeron. They call you the ghost prince – the sickly boy who haunts the palace library, filling your head with dreams of high adventure. Now, as the shadows lengthen and danger threatens your beleaguered kingdom, you must finally prove yourself. It is time to take up your hallowed sword, Duran’s Heart, and forge your own destiny in a cruel and savage world – one that has no mercy for weakling princes. No happy endings.”
