A challenge of bravery and spirit

It is your birthday, and you are finally old enough to attempt your village’s most sacred rite of passage: the Trial of the Wolf Girls. Those who complete the Trial are no longer just girls—they become fierce warrior women sworn to defend their homes and take care of nature.

Enter the enchanted and eerie Forest of Masks, where strange creatures and forgotten magic dwell. If you can overcome the dangers of the forest and light the Torch of Queens, you will join the honored ranks of the wolf girls and be rewarded with your very own magical wolf companion!

Choose carefully, young warrior, and heed the wisdom of the Mother Druid and your older sisters—this gamebook contains 9 unhappy endings but only 2 good endings!

What is a gamebook?

A gamebook is not a regular book that you read cover to cover. Instead, a gamebook puts YOU in the role of the heroine!

In this gamebook, you’ll adventure through a fantasy world filled with strange magic, fearsome monsters of legend, and ancient relics left behind by your ancestors.

At the end of each section, you’ll be given a choice of what to do or where to explore next. Depending on which choice you make, you’ll be asked to turn to a page somewhere else in the book. There are multiple paths through the adventure that lead to the best ending.

Many choices you make will lead to exciting new areas filled with wonder and danger. Other choices will reveal magical treasures you can use to overcome monsters, traps, and evil magic. Some choices, of course, will lead to the unhappy end of your adventure …


Trial of the Wolf Girls was originally prepared as a gift for patrons of the Monroe County Public Library in Bloomington, Indiana.
