Editorial Reviews

"By the standards of computer game books, this is a staggering tome. That it covers the solutions to all seven King's Quest games doesn't account for its length and richness--not even when you take into account that it leads to multiple solutions of many problems. This is more than just a computer game solution book: it's a fantasy novel in its own right. In The King's Quest Companion we often follow the narrative stories of the King's Quest characters, seeing their world through their eyes, hearing their voices and thoughts, seeing them not as on-screen game pieces but as fully developed characters. That might even be too mild a description, because Spear insists throughout that the world of Daventry is "real" and that these stories all really happened. Certainly, the characters have become real for the devoted players who've followed their exploits since the first King's Quest changed the face of computer gaming in 1984. Spear's strategy guide offers solutions to the puzzles that have driven players to distraction for years, but more than that, he adds new depth to the King's Quest experience."

This book is only 482 pages not over 600 as they claim,and it absolutely DOES NOT cover KQ7!

I think such false advertising is inexcusable!
What a great book. I bought it for the maps and hints. The stories for each game, told from the characters point of views, were fun to read. I'll definitely keep an eye out for more books by this author.
My sister and I had the entire King's Quest computer game series. After ages of trying to best the game without success, my mother purchased this book. With my sister manning the keyboard and me acting as navigator, we completed Romancing the Throne -- without saving the game. We had an old computer with very little memory, so we couldn't save the game. They say you can't beat the game without saving it, but they're wrong -- we did it. It took three and a half hours, but we did it.

Also very interesting reading. Definitely worth the price we paid!
Even if you haven't played the game, this is a great book just to read! If you need help with the game, or, if you want to get more out of them, then this is a great aid. The maps, and descriptions, and the illistrations all help to enjoy the game.
This book is a long-winded way of exploring the Kings Quest series. With NO illustrations I was disappointed with this book.I thought we may have gotten an insight into characters and places with pictures and drawings from the storyboard stages.NO WAY! The only tid bit of information that seemed interesting was on the lost plot in Kings Quest 6 (the best game). Only buy this book if you need help on getting through all seven games.
The Kings Quest Companion Is Excellent! It's #1! If You Play The Games, Or If You Are In Need Of A Great Thing To Read, The Kings Quest Companion's More Than A Guide, It Details Each Game In Novels! Read It!
...However, I've never really liked the KQ companion series of books. I just prefer to make up my own backstories for the events that occur in the games.
