    My first Xanth book...

    This was the first Xanth book I read, back when I was in high school. I have read it countless times since then. I didn't realize that this was a series of books but I was pleasantly surprised that they were and that you did not need to read them in order, because each book is it's own story. Starting from #1 is highly recommend though because the books are so wonderful that you'll want to read them all!!! I love how almost each story has elements of romance, adventure and of course magic! And don't forget those PUNS!! Piers Anthony never ceases to amaze me with his books. Highly highly recommended!!!

    Fantastic Fantasy

    This book was a colorful read, filled with so many different people, places, and puns. Piers Anthony demonstrates the colorful, and creative talent I also hope to be able to demonstrate someday. It was a fantastic book with a sweet ending.

    Another of Anthony's great works

    After already reading many of Piers Anthony's books I found this one to be very enjoyable. The funny puns and jokes were very elaborately set in the book. Overall it is a book worth reading.

    This Book is so Neat :0)

    This is the first P. Anthony book I have ever read and I've been in love with his books ever since. This is perfect for anyone unfamiliar with Anthony's books. Gloha is still my most favorite story book character, and she will charm just about anyone--as things with wings often do :0). Anyone who enjoys fantasy, other dimensions, and quests for true love should pick up this book.

    Another Creative Mind-Catching Book

    Piers Anthony still adds to a collection of a series that I can't stop reading. 'Harpy Thyme' is a good example of how well he can write. This book is not alone however, he has many books in the Xanth series, each having it's own individual catchy plot. This is a must read in his series, I give it two thumbs up!
