Like other Piers Anthony stories, this one was okay for me. I liked it more than other ones I have read of his, but not enough to necessarily recommend it to my friends. For fans of Anthony’s short fantasy novels, this is one to add to your list. To be honest, I enjoyed the first quarter of the book. It contained all aspects of a fantasy story, including various creatures, interesting names, and adventures. However, when the introduction of Virtue occurred, the story took a turn for the worse in my opinion.
Fortunately, this wasn’t as sexual as some of his other stories, but it is still not one I enjoyed. I respect Anthony for continuing to write and for collaborating with authors who want to write and share their stories. I fully support any author who follows their dreams and helps others along the way. For me though, his writing style is not one that I prefer. It is a short, easy read that readers can quickly get through in one or two sittings.
