1 review about Shadow on the Sand (Lone Wolf, Book 5)

Super Edition? I don't think so - but still tons of fun!

  • Jun 10, 2006
"Shadow on the Sand," is a fun adventure overall. There are some exciting fight sequences and your adventure will take you from horseback, to ships, to flying in the air. This book should not be missed if you are a fan of Lone Wolf.

My only complaint about this book is the advertised "Super Edition: Including Two Adventures" on the cover of the book. There are "two adventures" in this book, but they are both considerably short. I remember getting to the end of the first adventure and thinking, "that's it? That's the end of the first adventure? How disappointing, I barely did anything." Up until now, every Lone Wolf book has had 350 numbered sections. This book has 400, and each adventure has 200 numbered sections. Therefore, each adventure is 150 numbered sections shorter than all the other adventures. It is noticeable, too, because each adventure is short and there is not a lot of freedom and choices to make.

While this book may be a "Super Edition," I think that had this been a "Super Edition: One 400 sections adventure!" would've been much better. This book still is fun, and necessary to read to finish off the first series. After this book is the Magnakai series, which is unbelievably fun!

Finally, Joe Dever has authorized the free distribution and licensing of his Lone Wolf series which are available online. This resource has the unabridged editions which makes it great. I will not give out the URL as part of the reviewers agreement but with a little searching you should be able to find it. However, I still prefer to read the paperback versions instead of an online version.

What did you think of this review?

Fun to Read
