Sonic Adventure Gamebook: Zone Rangers (Part 3)


The club embarks on the last leg of their adventure, and tensions are HIGH. Murph re-distributes Sonic's stats to make him a more sensible hog, while Caldwell and Emily mourn the loss of their beautiful buff blue blur. The journey takes them from the desert to the mountains to a city and to SPACE for what can only be described as an hour and a half of literary torture.

Minecraft: The Island: A Novel
