This is a fantastic story of adventure with plenty of humor and romance thrown in for good measure.

The book was still interesting and I did pick up on little subtleties I missed as a teenager.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Dor is growing up and King Trent is providing him with occasional opportunities to practice his Kingship skills as we all know from previous books that Dor is the designated heir for King Trent. So, at the beginning of the book, King Trent informs Dor that he will be going on a secret trade mission to Mundania and Dor needs to take over the Kingship while Trent is away. To camouflage everything, Trent tells everyone that he and Iris are taking a long needed vacation. The whole absence is supposed to be for only a week.

Dor takes over and finds out that being a King is not as easy as it seems. As a matter of fact, there are implications and complications for every seemingly minor decision that is brought to Dor's attention. So, Dor does the best he can and seems to do a fair job of it especially since his magical talent is very helpful! The week passes by and Dor is ready the give up his throne ... but Trent does not return!!!

Another two weeks pass by and Dor is beside himself with worry. Not only that, but Trent's daughter Irene is also sick with worry and since she is Dor's constant companion, it is hard for him to ignore the issue. Another factor that complicates life is that Dor is now 16 and Irene is 15 and she is developing into quite a beautiful girl while Dor is also developing into a man and is starting to notice that Irene has developed in some very interesting shapes and intriguing ways!

Finally, Dor and Irene cannot stand it any more and they resolve to search out where Trent is and rescue him if necessary. But, another complication arises, it seems that a new Magician has been detected in the very south of Xanth and that needs to be investigated immediately.

Centaur Aisle is one of the best books I have ever read. I've read all of the Xanth novels and Centaur Aisle is the prized one. If you like Harry Potter and you're waiting for the next book to come out, these books will keep you going!

Xanth is a great and very quirky series and this is my favorite book of the entire series. I think the earlier Xanth books were the best and this one was always great with its hints of romance and puns. Love this book.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This wasn't one of Anthony's better Xanth novels and while I liked the way Irene handled herself I don't particularly like the way Anthony tends to depict women. He may be sexest but the book was good enough to get over that and enyoy the charecters. I really liked the ogre who was delightfully stupid and the centaurs who were (usualy) painfully smart. And, no offense intended to the author, but couldn't he cut out just a tad of the smutty jokes and sexual inuendo so some if the younger reader's mothers, such as mine, will have less reasons to complain about their kids reading it? But if you don't mind that doen't let this review keep you from reading it.-Elia

Format: Mass Market Paperback
16 year old Prince Dor must fill in as temporary king while King Trent and Queen Iris are away on business in Mundania. Two wweks pass, no Trent. Dor decides he (Trent) must have been captured. He gathers a search party, consisting of an ogre, a golem, a centaur, and Princess Irene, who is way more than willing to be Dor's Queen. The party set's off to the Good Magician Humfrey, to ask how they could rescue Trent. Humfrey tells them to seek the Centaur Aisle. So they set off toward Centaur Isle in the south. Mundania, of course, lay to the north. Ingenious plot, as always. Piers Anthony never fails to bring his immortal characters to life.
