Ok, this just arrived yesterday.  I have played through it twice, and died twice, without ever having reached the inner castle.  I am going to put it aside for a awhile and start anew.  My general impression is that it is quite fun.  It's a massive choose-your-own-adventure style book with tons of options.  One feature I really liked was that you had to find certain items to complete tasks in order to move on.  The mechanic is much better than "Did you find such-and-such, if so turn to page..."  Instead, some items are assigned a number value, and when the time comes to use them, that value is added to another in the text with the sum being the page you turn to.  This really cuts down on 'cheating,' which I was tempted to do (and did, with the older books).  There are some minor grammatical and spelling errors, but these in no way detract from the book.  Hope this helps!
