This begins the first story of the Govern Your Fate series, similarly made along the lines of the popular childens' books, Choose Your Own Adventure. If you are unfamiliar with these books, take note.
These are not ordinary stories to read once through and be done with. Almost each page or section concludes with an option to take a next step, as you are the main character in the story. Beware: Some choices, as in life, may lead to unfortunate circumstances. Some lead to prosperity, and some to your demise. Govern your fate carefully.
