Ariona: The Bounty Hunter (Explore-A-Quest) by Anthony Lampe tells the story of Ariona, a young bounty hunter. The reader is addressed as if he/she is Ariona herself, and every few pages the reader is asked to make a decision. Depending on the decision that is made, the reader is then taken to the according page in the book. The story starts with Ariona trying to find a man who sold a goblin remedy to humans. And while it really helps goblins, it is fatal for human beings. Ariona finds the cheat, yet getting him to justice is not as simple as she hopes. And he is not the only problem the young bounty hunter runs into. There is much more at stake than just getting a dubious character into jail.

If you have a child that enjoys fantasy and has a vivid imagination, then Ariona: The Bounty Hunter (Explore-A-Quest) by Anthony Lampe is a great alternative to books that are read in a linear way. The book also encourages the reader to re-read it at least once, as there are different endings to the story, and the reader will most likely be quite interested in learning what those other ends are like. However, at least one of the endings is rather gruesome, and might not be suitable for really young children. Sensitive kids might become a bit upset. All in all, this kind of book is good for avid young readers or for parents who would like to turn their children into keen readers.
