What can a hapless reviewer possibly find to say about Anthony's Xanth yarns--here the 21st of that ilk--that hasn't been said before? Astonishing as it may seem, Anthony has found the present puns-and-anything-goes format too restrictive, so he's introduced a miniature planet called Ptero that contains (wait for this) everything in Xanth that is or ever could be! The future sure won't have been what it used to be. So: evidently, nothing much--but stay tuned for next year's adventure (according to reports from Ptero, it'll be about zombies). And, meantime, in the author's afterword, you can catch up on the latest news about Anthony's teeth. -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP.

In my opinion this is not one of the better Xanth books. It sort of drags along but some interesting and good things happen. Read morePublished on May 27 2004 by C. K. Adams

I've just finished reading Faun & Games and have over the years read every Xanth novel before it. I gotta say, here was a setting with a fair amount of potential. Read morePublished on Aug. 27 2000
Faun & Games has easily become one of my favorite Xanth books ever! It has one of the best stories ever conjured for Xanth; taking you from planet to planet...literally! Read morePublished on July 13 2000 by T. Young
Though the book is still fun to read, it was pretty much like the rest of the series: main character has a problem, goes to good magician, then ends up in a full fledged adventure. Read morePublished on June 27 2000 by M. A. Ramos

I enjoyed the premise of the book, as I almost always do with Piers Anthony's Xanth books. But there are just getting to be too many puns. Read morePublished on Jan. 19 2000 by Benjamin Thomas
Great, I just loved it. I myself am a Piers Anthony fan, and I have to admit that I think that this is his greatest masterpiece ever! Read morePublished on Dec 12 1999 by "devilat6913"
