Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Piers Anthony [Xanth] -- Piers Anthony redefined the fantasy series when he launched his Xanth books--they're(quite simply) pun for the whole family!

--Veronica Chapman, Senior Editor

From the Inside Flap

Although the Nextwave of barbarian warriors was invading Xanth, Mare Imbrium discovered that ever since she had gained the half soul, the night mare had begun to mishandle her job of delivering bad dreams. Exiled to the day world with a message for King Trent, Mare met the relentless, unforgiving Horseman. For the night mare, it began to be all a horrible nightmare!

Imbri is a great character, and the book has a great plot.

Did not really enjoy this Xanth Book, I think from here on out the series goes downhill and is pretty much just a money grab.

This work of fantasy is tremendously creative. It is consistently inventive and imaginative. Piers Anthony is a master of writing original fantasy. All of his Xanth novels exude creativity and inventiveness.

Piers has done it again! I have read all of his Xanth books up to this one. They are all good, but this one has more happening in it than the others! Mundane barbarian warriors think they've gone to war with a rival territory. Wrong! Well, they can't pull out now, so they decide to see if they can take over Xanth. A mysterious person keeps putting the kings in a trance and nobody know's how. It's up to a night mare to set Xanth back to the way it use to be!

Format: Hardcover
Imbrium had lost her edge to scare. This might not seem so bad to us, but Imbri was a night mare, a bringer of bad dreams. It seemed that after acquiring half of a soul, her will to frighten had been shoved out. Also, her secret desire to see a rainbow didn't help much either. So her sire, the Night Stallion, retired her from dream duty for two reasons: her edge was lacking, and he had a mission for her. That mission was to save Xanth.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book to get, because it is actually three Xanth books in one. The first one, Centaur Aisle, is the fourth book in the series, and continues the mix of humorous puns, romance, and fantasy adventure as Dor is left in charge of Xanth as King Trent takes a "vacation" to Mundania (Earth). However, when the King goes missing, Dor must set out to find him, so he treks to the Southern most reaches of Xanth, the entrance to Mundania is of course to the North.
Book 5 Ogre, Ogre is a endearing tale of an Ogre who goes out on a quest, but forgets what it was he was questing for near the start of his trek. Nothing to fear though, everything works out in the end.
Book 6, Nightmare is a story about one "horses" dream to see the rainbow. Before she can though, she must save Xanth from the latest wave of Mundanians, Solve the problem of the disapearing Kings, and deal with the dastardly Horse man. All will be revealed by the end of the novel.

I have read all of the xanth books from number 1 right through to Night Mare in about 3 weeks. What started as a way to beat my depression after reading the crap that Jordan just wrote, has turned into a feeding frenzy. Anthony knows what fun is.
