Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"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

"Profusely punning his path through his 26th Xanth fantasy (Up in a Heaval), the prolific Anthony focuses on a contest between Demon Jupiter and Demon Fornax, reviving to great effect the dueling demons theme from last year's Swell Foop…. As they crisscross Xanth, they encounter many of the characters featured in Anthony's previous works. Anthony's latest offering is certain to please fans.”  —Publishers Weekly

    Always a Great Read.

    I've been reading this series since the start and can never get enough! They have everything but sex and blood and guts. I just love them! I would recommend this series for teens and adults. Book clubs discussions would be great also.
