Review quote

"This being Xanth, the adventurers find absurdities, danger, and romance but also find themselves unwittingly involved in extremely complex intrigue. Classic Xanthromancy." --"Booklist" on "Air Apparent "" ""Naturally, the quest is successful--Anthony does not trade in tragedy in his best-known series--and what is more, along the way Clio finds true love with the magician Sherlock and meets a good many of the ongoing characters in the Xanth series. ...The puns for which the Xanthian corpus is famous are as numerous and outrageous as ever." --"Booklist" on "Currant Events ""Certain to please fans." --"Publishers Weekly "on "Up in a Heaval"show more
