This Lone Wolf book has been compared to a Fighting Fantasy book, in that it features dungeon exploration complete with tricks and traps. The book also has somewhat increased combat difficulty compared to some of the earlier books in the series.
In his quest to attain Kai Grand Master status, Lone Wolf must seek out and find 7 Lorestones. After obtaining the Lorestone of Varetta in the previous book and absorbing its wisdom and power, the location of the next Lorestone is revealed as the remote township of Herdos. Here, Lone Wolf is directed by friendly Elder Magi to search within the accursed fortress of Kazan-Oud, otherwise known as "Castle Death".
