Murphy’s urge to explore clashes with Frey’s caution when they uncover an ancient human lair. A new story of the Midnight Legion, “The Ancients Awaken,” is out today in Every Day Fiction.
“The Ancients Awaken” is a prequel to Operation Deep Sleep.
The Midnight Legion Book 1: Operation Deep Sleep has just been reviewed by Gamebook News. From the review:
A colour, illustrated gamebook for solo or 2-player use, this series uses a highly advanced game system, offering a deeper level of character generation than a standard CYOA gamebook – featuring combat, puzzles, diplomacy, stealth and role-playing elements.

The website Nerdy But Flirty calls Midnight Legion: Operation Deep Sleep one of “The Best Games for Solo Players from Gen Con 2016.” From the review:
“First, you build your character, RPG style. Then, you wake up and start making decisions Choose Your Own Adventure style, with each choice leading you somewhere different in the book and affecting the story. There are puzzles, combat, diplomacy, and role playing elements in this game, and the cool part is you can choose how to solve your problems – either through solving puzzles or by recovering your memories for clues. Anyone who likes books or yearns for those old Choose Your Own Adventure stories will foam at the mouth over this game.”
The Boxed Set containing the Midnight Legion Book 1: Operation Deep Sleep will be heading out soon to Kickstarter backers and pre-order customers, and will be available through all your favorite hobby stores beginning on September 20.
