While undergoing a medically induced coma in the real world, Kody dreams he is present in the magical world of Xanth, a land that bears a suspicious resemblance to the state of Florida. The natives all suffer from the curse of Esrever Doom, which reverses perceptions so that what is beautiful now seems ugly and the ugly seems beautiful. Only Kody is immune, so to him falls the task of reversing the curse and saving Xanth. VERDICT The 37th installment (after Luck of the Draw) of Anthony's beloved series maintains its successful formula, featuring a clueless hero who quickly learns the way of the world—and its many puns. Some puns are clever while others are groaners, but fans of Xanth should enjoy another variant on a familiar and ever-popular theme.
