    "In Xanth, with magic, anything could happen, and usually did."

    In my pre-teen years, when I began making reading choices for myself, I found, in the school library, several books by Piers Anthony. I'm sure there were lots of great authors that could have brought me into the fantasy genre family, but Anthony was an 'A' and so was at the beginning of the section. I ate those novels up. I couldn't get enough. He was funny, on levels that I didn't even understand at the time. He was creative. And every story had a moral, which a pre- and young-teen always needs. I continued to read Piers Anthony's Xanth novels into my teenage years but then began to grow out of them. I moved on to other authors. Other genres.
    A few weeks ago I stumbled across "Heaven Cent" in a bargain bin and just stood there holding it and grinning. So I got it and read it. As an adult reading another Xanth novel, I am able to appreciate even more of the humor, the puns, and Anthony's use of allegory throughout. I found myself grinning and wondering what it would be like to reread all of those Xanth books I read growing up.
    Xanth novels don't have to be read in sequence, each gives you enough history pertinent to that particular story. So even after not having picked up a Piers Anthony book in nearly 15 years it was as if I had never left the mysteriously magical land of Xanth. With titles such as "Night Mare", "Isle of View" (sounding like I love you, causing great confusion throughout many stories), and "Faun and Games", it's apparent what the reader is in for. And "Heaven Cent" is no different.

    Author's writing skill is only surpassed by his ego!

    I started out to be a big fan of Anthony's Xanth novels. The first nine books in the series were light and fun and thouroughly enjoyable. If you skip the Author's notes at the end, then you should be able to continue to enjoy the next half dozen, also. However, the author's over-inflated ego intrudes profoundly into his later books making them barely tolerable. About the only reason to continue the series is to find out the fates of some of the characters from the earlier books.

    Xanth-tastic

    How would you like to have the ability to shapechange? What about having a skeleton for a baby sitter? If you are Dolph, prince and heir to throne of Xanth, then this is something that happens every day of your life. Prince Dolph lives in the magical world of Xanth, where everyone is born with a magical talent. This story starts off with Prince Dolph trying to find the Magician Humphrey. Along the way to finding Humphrey, Dolph meets dragons, mermaids, centaurs, and more. He finds a lot of adventure on the way. He also finds girls. Make sure that you read this book. Once you start you won't be able to put it down.
