XANTH

#13-- More or less a contiuation of book 11 and 12 but still darn funny!!

"Che, Chex Centaur’s winged foal, has been kidnapped by a group of goblins. It is up to Jenny, a girl from the world of Two Moons, to save him. Dolph finally has to decide who to marry: Electra or Naga Nada." ( )

This is actually one of my favorite of the newer Xanth books. And by new I mean the new "trilogy." He really started going in a little different direction after the first 9 books and these nine books have a more continuous plot line, which I enjoy. I like this book because the whole Nada vs. Electra thing is finally resolved. ( )

Good if you are a hard core Xanth fan, and if you've read up to this 13th volume, you must be! The puns are still good, but there isn't much in the plot that's new, and since Xanth is really only the size of Florida (since it is Florida) there isn't much new to be discovered in the world of Xanth. Funny, but getting old by this point. ( )

Book description
    DEVIL OF A MESS

The dust devil swirled and became devastatingly female. "Well now! A living man! this is most intriguing. I am the Demoness Metria," she said. "I have had some limited dealings with your benevolent."

"My what?" he asked blankly.

"your compassionate, gentle, Humane," she said crossly.

"Oh, you mean my kind."

"Whatever. What are you doing here, Prince?

"I'm looking for Che Centaur, who was foal-napped by a party unknown."

"Oh, that," she said, disinterested. "The goblins took him. I suppose they want him for food, to feed the little goblins. too."

"Feed the little goblin stew?" Dolph asked, horrified.
