Xanth was the enchanted land where magic ruled--where every citizen had a special spell only he could cast. That is, except for Bink of North Village. He was sure he possessed no magic, and knew that if he didn't find some soon, he would be exiled. According to the Good Magician Humpfrey, the charts said that Bink was as powerful as the King or even the Evil Magician Trent. Unfortunately, no one could determine its form. Meanwhile, Bink was in despair. If he didn't find his magic soon, he would be forced to leave....

Anyone who reads this book will not be able to stop until you've read the entire series. It's not your garden variety of fantasy and is more fun than anything else you could read. I would recommend it to all ages. I'm on my second reading and I'm a grandmother - already on book 5. Going to start reading it to my 6 year old grandson. Try it!
This story will take you on an amazing adventure. I've started my second path through Xanth and can't wait for the third.
I started reading this series when I was 10, and now at 25 I have yet to find a series as vibrant. The stories are deeply compelling and the characters are intricate, yet the whole experience is refreshing. You won't be sorry with this buy.
