Bryce, an 80-year-old man in failing health, suddenly finds himself in Xanth, with his body rejuvenated, his health restored-and his future already determined for him. As part of a bet between the Demons Earth and Xanth, Bryce must enter a contest to win the heart of the Princess Harmony, whether she is willing or not. In his 36th novel (after Well-Tempered Clavicle) set in the pun-filled fantasy world of Xanth (which bears a suspicious resemblance to the state of Florida), Anthony tells another rollicking story that simultaneously deals with the issues of physical aging, life choices, and second chances.
Verdict: This is sure to please longtime fans and also serves as an introduction to readers who may be new to the beloved series.
