Summary
All five of the adventures within Petersen's Abominations are well written and presented although I feel three of the tales are far stronger than the other two. This is certainly a book aimed at experienced Keepers as there will be a lot of prep time needed, especially as far as the Mohole adventure. It's pretty apparent these were written as tournament one offs and the chances for a TPK taking place are high. This might lead to some hard feelings from the players if they happen to be still trying to tie things together. All an all though three really good and two solid adventures earns this my recommendation.
