This is the twenty seventh book in the successful Fighting Fantasy gamebook series, written by Jonathan Green, set in the hot and dangerous Desert of Skulls.

Book Description:Another exciting Fighting Fantasy adventure. Beware the Curse of Akharis!

In this second (re-edited) Jonathan Green adventure, originally printed as the 59th and last original Penguin gamebook, you find yourself in popular setting of Allansia within the south-western cityport of Rimon.

After an ancient tomb is unearthed belonging to the Akharis, a legendary ruler from the ancient kingdom of Djarat (a nation state that originated from the ruined empire Irritarian empire of Granat) you are single-handedly given the quest from a short-lived companion: to stop the evil Cult of the Cobra from resurrecting the evil mummy Akharis.

From the city port, you explore and travel the lands north of Rimon, ruins by an oasis, and finally the tomb itself to the mummy's burial chamber and beyond.

The adventure provides a good selection of unique undead encounters, such as Akharis himself, mummies, spirits (and a supporting cast of cultists), a high priestess, snakes and other desert-themed enemies. Like many of Ian Livingstone's books, the adventure provides ample opportunity to collect items, some of which are red herrings, whilst others are most certainly not.
