The story was decent enough for me to pay $3.99 for the next volume, the few moments that are recognizable from the books are what keeps you in. The focus on what were otherwise secondary characters in the source material; and the fact that Lone Wolf himself is hard to like makes the read somewhat difficult. Forget the wise yet headstrong Kai lord of the Choose your Adventure books, this is Kai lord is more of a brat. Funny enough, Qinefer acts much more like the gamebook's Lone Wolf than Lone Wolf does.

Oh well not a waste of money, but wouldn't be worth it at full price.

A Great Read Feb. 4 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Dark Door Opens take place immediately after the first Legends book, Eclipse of the Kai. It begins with the young hero, Silent Wolf, who has just changed his name to Lone Wolf, fleeing the desetruction of the Monastery where those of his order had trained for centuries. Lone Wolf is now the last of his order, the Kai, and must make his way to the capital of Sommerlund to warn the king that the Darklords have destroyed the Kai. And so, he makes a treacherous journey on foot and horse, through forest and stream, hills and ancient hallowed grounds before the spires of Holmgard are visible. But he is not alone, another young man, Banedon of the Magician's Guild at Toran has also learnt of the destruction of the Kai and becomea spiritual brother to Lone Wolf. Banedon must return to his guild and convince those present to take action. Meanwhile, the forces of darkness await the two would-be heroes around every corner, plotting their destruction and a fall of Sommerlund. Vonotar the Traitor's treachery and betrayal of his homeland has caused the downfall and almost complete extermination of the Kai, and only Lone Wolf has the abilities to stop him...before it is too late.
Poor Adaptation May 10 2013

As a fan of Lone Wolf, I was disappointed in this book. Joe Denver's Magnamund is a phenomenal fantasy landscape filled with tremendous variety, and an amazing setting for high adventure. This book, unfortunately, contained numerous awkward parts (if not outright errors) and plot holes. Worse yet, it failed to convey the main and supporting characters (and villains) in believable fashion consistent with the depictions in the roleplaying books.

Worthy successor to Eclipse of the Kai July 23 1998
By Jeff Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The immediate sequel to Eclipse of the Kai, The Dark Door Opens builds onto the storyline of its predecessor. The writing cannot compare too well against the later books in the series, when John Grant has a firmer foothold with this line, but there are some memorable moments. The tension-charged confrontation between Vonotar the Traitor and the Guildmaster, the firestorm attack upon the city of Toran, and the flight to Holmgard are highlights of this book.
