We get to chat with Jonathan Green of ACE Gamebooks who has been designing some awesome adventure books that you can dive into, based on Historical adventures.

One of the best is Beowulf: Beastslayer but there is also an awesome gamebook where you can choose which character to play as like Dracula OR Mina Harker!

Beowulf and Dracula didn’t crop up in any of my history lessons at school.

Nice idea to have different playable characters in a gamebook, especially taking the villains viewpoint.

these all sound amazing a book playing as Dracula would be a really cool twist on an adventure book.

I’ve never played through an adventure book. Are most of the choices / outcomes effective in altering the story or is there a lot of dead ends with backtracking?

That Dracula book sounds awesome.
I would definitely play as Dracula first.
My children might enjoy it as well.

Only recently discovered adventure books/choose your own adventure books and love them. Currently making my way through fabled lands books. Think Dracula/Beowulf could be next
