From the Inside Flap

Stile had problems on two different worlds. On Proton he was threatened with murder, and on Phaze, an alternate world ruled by magic, he had to master magic, fight a dragon, win the friendship of a lady unicorn, locate his enemy among the paranoid Adepts and return out of Phaze to win the Great Games on Proton. After that, he was ready to face the real problems!

Certainly better than most of this guy's stuff.This trilogy might be his best work.I thought "incarnations" might be good,until I got to that "hourglass" drivel.Anyway,as a young teenager I did like his Xanth books...way too mediocre to hold my interest as an adult though.I reccomend David Eddings if you like this style but find Anthony to be too inane.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
On the planet Proton, science works and magic doesn't, but juxtaposed with this world is another frame, that of Phaze, where magic works, but science doesn't. This is powered by a mineral called Protonite or Phazite depending on which frame you are in, and the Protonite mining of it is endangering the balance of both frames. Stile has been prophesied to ameliorate this destruction, but many powerful people in both frames are out to stop him, denying the destabilization and wanting to maintain their present status. What Stile must accomplish, jumping back and forth between frames, is enough work for ten men. How he manages it all will keep the reader on the edge of his or her seat throughout.
Anthony is not content to state a premise of this complexity without asking the difficult questions. Many authors would rely on a statement like "magic works" without feeling it necessary to explain. Anthony's world, and it's backstory, contain logical explanations for the fantastic occurrences therein. World-building does not come at the expense of characters, either. Stile's honor, incorruptibility, and personal development have converged to make him uniquely qualified for his task. Sheen the self-aware robot struggles with her inability to be "real" and her desire to be loved. Even more secondary characters such as Clef, Merle, and Trool have their own internal conflicts and personal evolving to do.
I really can't recommend this series enough, particularly if you can't decide whether you prefer science fiction to fantasy. There is quite enough of both to satisfy you.

I read this series while in Junior High in the 1980s, so I remembered it and wanted to read it again. Good Series that mixes Sci-Fi and Fantasy. Even today, it is still a great mix of different styles and is worth the read. NOTE: You won't be happy with just one book - you'll want to read all three, in order

Normally when you finish a trilogy you are glad that you've finished. However, the ending here makes you want to visit th land of "phase" again.

This a wonderful book, that will keep you guessing from start to finish! It was similar to finding your way through a maze, only much more gratifying.

Piers Anthony is one of the finest Fantasy/Science Fiction around today. This series is one of my favorites and this final installment connecting all the loose ends. A great read all around.
