The book Split Infinity is the first book in the series of Apprentice Adept by Piers Anthony. The book is a about an extremely short serf named Stile. A serf is what the basic person is called on the planet Proton. Proton is located in the same system as Earth. On Proton, there are two types of people, the serf and the citizen. Serfs are hired by citizens to do various thing around the planet, but serfs have limited tenure and when it runs out they are deported to Earth. Citizens are extremely wealthy people that hire serfs and have unlimited tenure. Stile is a normal serf that is very talented at the game, a game that tests all attributes of a human against others. Stile led a normal life until a mysterious robot is sent to protect him and attempts start being made on his life. Once, as he is trying to escape from pursuers, he accidentally crosses a curtain that teleports him to a mysterious world were magic really exists. He then has the ability to cross the curtain from world to world, but attempts at his life are made in the other world to. Stile must now try to find who is trying to kill him on both worlds and why. I would give this book four out of five stars because it keeps you interested and makes you want to read the whole series.

Split Infinity is the first book of the Apprentice Adept series. Piers Anthony is best known for his Xanth series, but I enjoyed the first three novels of this series as much as I did anything else that Piers Anthony wrote. The novel (and series) deals with a dual world. Proton is a science fiction orientated world. The laws of science rule the world. The planet is desolate with the air being unbreatheable. People live in large city sized domes. People are divided into two classes. Citizens are extremely wealthy, are permitted to wear clothing, and are the rulers of Proton. Serfs do the work, are not permitted clothing (though are permitted their own diversions as long as it does not interfere with their work), and have a limited tenure on Proton. After their tenure expires, they must leave the planet (though they do get to collect a large amount of their earnings at the end of tenure). Phaze is a fantasy world where magic exists and the world is still fairly pristine. The powers of Phaze are human magician called Adepts (they are adept in one particular facet of the magic). Dragons, unicorns, and werewolves are real. The features of the Phaze are the same as Proton, except the land hasn't been ruined.
The protagonist of the novel is a man named Stile. Stile is a serf on Proton. He is a jockey for a Citizen, but in the private world of the serfs, he is a master at the Games. The Games are the main entertainment for serfs, and they get to test their skills at various sports/games/arts/activities. A master player can excel in most facets of the Game. Stile is a master player and is two years from the end of his tenure. He meets a female robot named Sheen (get the pun?).

While the book had a slow start, the book continually got better until the great ending that has me hooked. I was doubting whether or not I was going to read the next two books, but now I am for sure. The idea of balancing a book between Sci-Fi and Fantasy is very cool. However, there is too much in the way of sex and sexual innuendos. The author seems, to me, a very disturbed person. Despite this, the book is a great read.

I was not much of a book reader. I found a copy of Split Infinity at the bus I was on and started reading it. I was wondering why the book cover had a picture of a unicorn and the first few chapters clearly depicted a science fiction (future world) scenario. By the end of the book, I had to get my hands on Blue Adept and Juxtaposition. I have not found a book even remotely similar to the Apprentice Adept series since. The combination and relevance of both sci-fi world and fantasy world had been excellently written and the style of magic that Piers Anthony penned in this book was clearly unique. I will definitely let my kids read this book once they are able. I have been a Fantasy genre reader ever since I found this book.

This book is a fast read that will make you want to re-read it over and over. I was fist introduced to this book by a friend. Firstly let me point out i am not the reading type, however this book had me hooked i couldn't stop reading it (I've missed quite a few stops on the bus because of this book).
Piers Anthony has created a wonderful world (or worlds should i say) in which Stile (the main character) is a minor inhabitant he is a jocy on a planet called proton until it all goes pear-shaped when there is a threat on his life.
The title 'Split Infinity' makes more sense after you've read the book. Piers has two worlds which are parallel dimentions on is Proton and one is called Phaze. Proton being the futuristic planet barren out side bio-domes, and Phaze being a lush land of magic and mythical creatures.
All in all this book is an amasing read it totaly pulls you in and you won't want to put it down and you be sad to when you've finished.
BTW: Split Infinity is number one in a series to find the others go to amazon.com and serch for The Apprentice Adept Series, for a full list; as some of the books are not avalible in the UK or are out of print (however lots of second hand copies on amazon.com and .co.uk for that matter)
