Danger! Adventure! Humor! Dangerous adventure humor! Return to Brookmere has it all!
If you're a D&D fan of ye olden days, you'll probably enjoy the great dungeon-crawl style herein. Though not tops in dungeon-crawlyiness, it's right up there with others in the series, like Dungeon of Dread and Pillars of Pentegarn.
In this Endless Quest book you are an elf named Brion tasked with a reconnaissance mission to discover what's up with his family's old kingdom, the one some monsters routed them from years ago. For your quest, you're given a dragon head charm, and low and behold, it speaks! In fact, Mim as it's known, has quite the personality. Maybe too much frickin' personality. Even so, he knows his way around, so he's pretty helpful when making decisions.
I enjoyed the heck out of this one as a kid. I picked it up again to write this review. Let's see the intel I gathered from my recent recon attempts:
Adventure #1 Here's a tip: Don't start off by just running into the dungeon willy-nillily (<--that's a Karl Pilkingtonism), because that'll get you killed right quick.
Adventure #2 After giving it a good think this time, I zipped along down corridor after corridor and seemed to pass every kind of low-level baddie and even a couple giants. Turns out a cornucopia of monsters are rallying against some invading force. That force turns out to be my giant weasel*, whom I get reacquainted with and with whom I plan to conquer all!
Adventure #3 This time I decided to follow the advice of the cranky, wise-crackling Mim. He led me into a fantastical scene that, oddly enough, didn't move the plot forward or include any action and yet it was a fun and interesting sidebar nonetheless. After that I wandered through the dungeon almost endlessly, having little encounters before discovering a treasure hoard and making for home.
Adventure #4 Another maze-of-corridors adventure in which I ran afoul of orcs, gnolls, and hobgoblins only to end up back at that monster rally. Many choices seem to lead to that meeting or discoveries of treasure hoards. These appear to be your best possible outcomes for this book. Well, that and not dying.
I was about 11 or 12 when I first read this and I think that's a good age for the reading level. The monsters are pretty non-threatening, almost cartoonish for the most part. There's a number of ways to lose, and even end up dead, so there's a little bit of violence as to be expected in a sword & sorcery book.
This used to be right up there as one of my favorites, I think because it reminded me so much of D&D. However, as a kid, the "return" part of Return to Brookmere confused me. I assumed it meant this was a sequel, so for a few years I was in search of the original. I think there might've been something wrong with my medulla oblongata.
* Not a euphemism!
