You live the life of a Robinson Crusoe in this suspenseful adventure (written in second person) as you encounter pirates, treasure, islanders, challenging terrain and animals. Danger and excitement pull you in by asking you to make a decision at the end of almost every page and sending you to the page where that story direction continues. Short segments and hopping back and forth in the book keep short attention spans happy. Whether you read Sugarcane Island to your child or he or she reads it alone, the chance to shape the story is empowering and magnetic. And how nice to be with your child as he or she learns to weigh risks and discover the outcomes of decisions, in this safe fictional environment. " (75os-713) .

For classmates Emily and Craig and their teacher, genteel Miss Potts, summer begins routinely enough: Emily tends her rambunctious brother, Craig decides to look up a friend, and Miss Potts closes down the classroom. On one of the desks she finds a mysterious old playbill. Soon, all three are beset by frightening premonitions. Something dangerous, something connected with the past is about to happen. As tension builds, the characters' separate stories come together, seemingly forced by the evil designs of a strange magician who appeared in the town some 50 years before. Together or alone, they must resist him. No deeply embedded meanings are uncovered by the end; this is simply a well-told story of horror. The characters are sharp, the plot is solid, and Bedard has a wonderful way of dropping vivid details, like clues, along the way. Ages 10-14. " (156osl) .

PATH OF SHADOW A Character Resource for Rogues, Legends & Lairs

By Staff, Fantasy Flight Games

Fantasy Flight Games. Near Fine. 2002. First Edition. Hardcover. 1589940741 . Excellent condition. Pages clean, tight and unmarked except for a small checkmark on endpage. Cover has light scuffing, slight corner bumping . ; Dungeons & Dragons d20 3.0 Fantasy Roleplaying; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 176 pages; All the tools a rogue needs to fight back against the DM! Review: "A great source book...... This is a great source, it has 19 prestige classes with their respective organization that not only can be applied to the rogue class but also to the ranger and bard classes, their all well balanced, but most importantly you would want to play them all. It also has 13 legendary classes, this is a great concept, because it will give you more options for high level campaings, and because the tests you would have to take to achive them would give your DM more material for adventures (and this adventures will be very exiting). The art of the book is also great, some people won't like it because it's black & white, but I think it's perfect for a Book called Path of Shadow. If you are looking for a great source book with complete information (and that is better than the oficial one) this is it." [715] .
