This isn't a terribly challenging book, but it's well-written and interesting.

Time Machine. What can be said about this series that hasn't already been covered by others? An amazingly enjoyable concept in the world of game books -- coupled with a great learning tool for children. As a kid, I couldn't get enough of these books, and sure enough, each week I'd find myself back at the local library to indulge in these as well as as many CYOA entries as I could dive into. Secret of the Knights was a great way to start off this series, as it couples a fascinating topic (what little boy doesn't dream of being a knight in shining armor at some point?) with above-average writing. The story is fascinating, and though the gameplay is a little weak, as most of the choices are fairly obvious, the fun atmosphere this book provides more than makes up for the ease with which this book can be gotten through. Not the book to pick up if you're looking for a serious challenge, but a must have for fans of this series or medieval culture.
