--Veronica Chapman, Senior Editor

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!

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.

( I find it's helpful to preface my reviews with the kinds of books I've enjoyed reading , so if you find yourself nodding your head to one or more of these titles then there's a good chance you'll like Centaur Isle too ;) ... I consider Weis and Hickman's Dragonlance (first nine novels in the series), Darksword Trilogy, Stephen King's The Stand and Gunslinger books, Guardians of the Flame by Joel Rosenberg, and the Wild Card series shared world written by George Martin among others to be absolute must have classics.. but if you're a fan of the Myth adventures series by Robert Asprin featuring Skeeve and Aazh , also a must have as far as I'm concerned up through and including "Myth Nomers and Impervections" , then you'll absolutely love Centaur Isle of that I'm very confident) ..

I was surprised to see only 65 reviews on here (at the time that I write this) for such an awesome book ... then I remembered that given the Harry Potter craze it's possible people have never even heard of Xanth :P ... which is a shame because this is a really, really good book (at least in my opinion), so much so that 30 years after I first read it as a 13 year old I gave it to my own 13 year old daughter to read and she absolutely loved it !

If you're like me though you don't like spoilers - let's face it, if your idea of a "spoiler" is knowing ANYTHING at all about the book prior to reading it then it's kind of hard to write a review for it :P ... if you're a spoiled brat like me in this regard as far as reading reviews :P then look at it this way .. a used copy of this book will run you as low as one penny plus shipping and handling for less dollars total than you have fingers on one hand (think you have to select the "mass market paperback" option).
