Youth is Wasted on the Young
Being grown up is a drag . . . or so thinks Lacuna, one of the michievous Castle Zombie twins. So she makes the Good Magician Grey an an offer he can't refuse. Thirsty for a taste of the Elixir of Youth, she'll help him outwit the evil Com-Pewter if he'll send her to Hell (in a handbasket, no less) to find Humphrey, the missing sorcerer. And while there, she'll learn the True History of Xanth (simplified) and help rescue a blushing Rose from the demon X(A/N) . . . with the help of a gorgon or two.
New York Times-bestselling author Piers Anthony has written over one hundred books. His first fantasy, "A Spell for Chameleon, " won the August Derleth Fantasy Award for best novel in 1977, and commenced his acclaimed Xanth series.
