Publisher Description

In Heir Apparent there are as many ways to win as there are to get killed.
     Giannine can testify to how many ways there are to die—it's about all she's been able to do since she started playing. Now all she has to do is get the magic ring, find the stolen treasure, answer the dwarf's dumb riddles, come up with a poem for the head-chopping statue, cope with the army of ghosts, outmaneuver her half brothers, and defeat the man-eating dragon.
     If she can do all of that, why, she just might save her own life!

distracting.

i know this book is written for a younger audience, but even though i'm 21 I found this book to be incredibly engaging and sophisticated. The only reason i didn't give this five stars is that it is FULL of typos. literally every page, and I find that very distracting. Once they even used the wrong character's name and it took me several minutes to get back on track. and there seemed to be a lot of random "MEN" stuck in. just the word MEN in the middle of a sentence.

A personal favorite

I read this book when I was very young, and I'm now 20 and I still enjoy it. It's a very good gamer read, the concept of respawning as a frustration and story building technique really hit home. I recommend this for any young readers, or avid RPG gamers.

Great book

Thoroughly enjoyed it. I "pre-read" books before I let me daughters read them. And I really enjoyed this one!
