As usual a book filled with puns, dry humor and just plain wonderfulness. If you have never read one of Mr. Anthony's books read this one.

This was one of the best Xanth novels ever! I think Piers just keeps getting better. He brings in new characters yet still visits older characters! This book had me laughing hysterically for the entire 2hours I was reading it.I couldn't put it down!

Let's face it. Piers Anthony is one of the best writers out there. His novels bring you to a magical place full of wonder, puns, myths, and querky humor. If you start one of his books, you will be unable to put it down. I agree with the other reviewer. You should really read some of his earlier work to be able to understand the history and fully enjoy his novels.

Okay, lets face it, it takes talent to keep a series interesting enough to write 26 and still have an audience. This one follows the highly interesting, complex theme of big 'D' Demons. One of the best climaxes of the Xanth series. However, if you haven't read most of the books that come before it and at least The Source of Magic, Yon Ill Wind, and Swell Foop, it will be hard to follow.

Mundane snail mail ending up in Xanth is forwarded to Demon Jupiter. Irate by what he receives, Demon Jupiter hurls his dreaded red spot at Demon Earth. If he throws a strike, Xanth will be destroyed. Umlaut, who now knows that all good deeds including forwarding snail mail leads to adventure, learns from the Good Magician that he must deliver the remaining mundane mail to hope to avert the disaster he started. Umlaut accompanied by his pals Sesame Snake and Sammy Cat begin the treacherous trek to save Xanth by delivering the mail even as other demons try to manipulate his raging hormones. The twenty-sixth Xanth tale (Grafton has a few to catch up) is the usual pun per line tale that shows Mr. Anthony has no piers when it comes to irreverent ¿adult conspiracy¿ humor that sends readers diving off the dock into a wild fantasy play on the English language. The story line is typical of the Xanth tales, but during the Myth-Adventures with no Asprin for pain relief, many of the participants in the glory of Xanth make an appearance. Though newcomers might struggle in the realm of punning, fans will delight in this comic endeavor as Mr. Anthony shows his usual amusing cat tail of a tale Harriet Klausner
