Xanth, barbarian Joden finds, loses and finds again true love after 400 years of death

Jordan is a barbarian with the talent to recover from injuries. Sent out on a cruel lie (adventure) mission, the purpose of which is to bring back an object to Castle Roogna. Threnody is the object that can diffuse herself or change forms and she is in love with Jordan. ( )

Fun read. ( )

A real pleasant surprise....this one has a great story going for it, but Anthony has managed to insert two great characters (Jordan the Barbarian and Threnody the demon-spawn) that really make this tale zip through. I've come to expect a certain level of entertainment from Xanth novels, but this one was just a real pleasure to read. Interesting note at the end: Anthony says all his Xanth novels are written for adults, but enjoyed by kids. I have noticed more and more adult themes creeping into the Xanth novels the more I read them. However, Anthony is very clever about how he writes on these issues....kind of like a cartoon with adult jokes that fly right over the kids heads but crack the parents up. ( )

This was my first Xanth book and then I was hooked. I loved the puns. Even the name is a pun. ( )

Ivy was restricted, for no reason at all, to Castle Roogna, and of course it was overwhelmingly boring.
