When the Good Magician Humfrey's son Hugo suddenly vanishes, his disappearance sets in motion a series of madcap misadventures that send a collection of colorful characters on a perilous pair of parallel quests. Among them are Debra, a pretty young girl beset by an obnoxious curse; Hugo's beloved wife Wira, whose sightlessness is balanced by a talent for sensitivity, Happy and Fray, a pair of sprightly storm-spirits; Nimbus, the Demon Xanth's own son; and the mysterious outlaw known as the Random Factor.

As they travel through some of the magical realm's most astonishing locales, these unwitting adventurers discover they are key players in a grand drama whose origins reach back to the origins of time itself.

Filled with exhilaration and excitement, ribaldry and romance, Air Apparent is a fabulous new fantasy saga from the lively imagination of master storyteller Piers Anthony.

Around we go through the Moons of Ida and where do we end up? Well, that would spoil the story.Though the Xanth novels seem repetitious, this one was pretty good. How does he keep coming up with new talents and new puns?

I stopped reading Piers Anthony's Xanth books back in high school and after reading Air Apparent I recall why I stopped reading them; way to many silly, stupid puns that add nothing to the story. This book would be a third of the page count without all the puns.I gave it two stars because the story was good enough to keep me reading and I was interested in the resolution of the mystery, but I have to say, this will be the last Xanth book I purchase.

Piers Anthony has done it again! Another great read in his Xanth series, this time featuring Hugo, the Good Magician Humphrey's son and his wife Wira, who have both been minor characters for too long. For all the Xanth fans out there, it is very good read. To Piers Anthony: Thank you and keep up the marvelous work!
