Hey, Faun, how about some fun? Forrest Faun rubbed what remained of his night's sleep out of his eyes and looked down to the base of his tree. There stood a fetching nymph with all the usual nymphly features: pretty face, flowing hair, perfect figure, and no clothing. But there was something amiss. What do you mean'? he asked as he sat up in a fork, still getting his bearings. What do you think I mean, Faun? Come down and chase me, the way fauns always do to nymphs. Then he had it. You're no nymph.

Forrest Faun rubbed what remained of his night's sleep out of his eyes and looked down to the base of his tree. But there was something amiss

Forrest Faun rubbed what remained of his night's sleep out of his eyes and looked down to the base of his tree. What do you mean'?" he asked as he sat up in a fork, still getting his bearings. hat do you think I mean, Faun? Come down and chase me, the way fauns always do to nymphs. "You're no nymph. Oh, pooh!" she swore, pouting. She dissolved into smoke and reformed.

ButForrest was no angel, so he needed something else. I gatherthat there is a way for me to eliminate my fear, and that you know ofit, but won't tell me," he said. You seem reasonably smart, for a faun. Not everyone considers me so," Forrest said. I met a damsel and adragon, and I think the damsel liked me, but thought I was a bit dull.

Ships from and sold by richardandlydiapf. After hating "Yon Ill Wind," I started this book with a sense of hope. Forrest Faun was a likeable and intriguing character, the mischievous demoness provided some enjoyable moments, we meet Mare Imbrium again, and the world of Ptero was fascinating. The resolution of Forrest's problem was obvious early on, but I still looked forward to seeing how it would actually manifest. Alas, the book took a downward spin as soon as we meet the Ptero versions of Dawn and Eve.

After hating "Yon Ill Wind," I started this book with a sense of hope. Forrest Faun was a likeable and intriguing character, the mischievous demoness provided some enjoyable moments, we meet Mare Imbrium again, and the world of Ptero was fascinating. The resolution of Forrest's problem was obvious early on, but I still looked forward to seeing how it would actually manifest. Alas, the book took a downward spin as soon as we meet the Ptero versions of Dawn and Eve. Once more, attractive women are cast as manipulative characters deliberately using their sex appeal to provoke (innocent) males. There is a certain humor in the way twins' gang up on Forrest, but the references to bare female anatomy and physical contact get tiresome. Xanth has always struck me as purposely designed for male titillation, with its plethora of nude nymphs, merwomen, centaurs, and the like, and this book goes one step further by hinting at (what I have been told is) the ultimate male fantasy: twins. It's typical Xanth, but getting stale. Imbri is utterly disappointing as a character: too often, she has no idea how to proceed or what to sugggest. She is simply 'there.' Dawn and Eve show more intelligence and initiative than Imbri. Indeed, once the twins are introduced, Imbri fades to the background and the focus is on the twins' sexcapades. The story might have been stronger if Imbri had remained central and Forrest had learned the same lessons interacting primarily with her, with Dawn and Eve's interest toned down.

I've been reading this series straight through from the beginning, and these later volumes lack a certain light-heartedness and joy that made the earlier books such a pleasant diversion. Perhaps it is only natural that over the years and 21 stories, the writing changes. Too bad, because this used to be my "pick me up series."

I found myself skipping whole paragraphs when it was obvious they would contribute nothing to the story but needless puns. I know Xanth books are known for their puns, but the ones in this story felt shoehorned in and no that clever. The story felt rush and so many pointless characters were introduced and forgotten in sometimes just one sentence.

"I am the possible daughter/son of this couple." As if the Xanth books' cast of characters wasn't hard enough to follow without now adding in a world of characters that could be. Like the concept alone just scream of the author giving up and trying whatever to get another book out.

And I was groaning every time they had to go "one level deeper" to find their solution. A world within a world within a world with a world. All of them have their own rules, but also contain characters from the real world. Oh my god this sludge was hard to trudge through.
JUST DO IT
Piers Anthony is a master story teller. In his Xanth series he has created a world of magic In which the exact literal definitions of the words used are what you get, thus giving you a skewed often funny set of events or characters. Faun & Games Is a series of adventures In which a Faun, half man half goat, must go through to accomplish his personal quest. I have read many of Piers Anthony Xanth books so was able to figure out the surprise ending, yet absolutely enjoyed the light hearted romp through this magical world and more. Read it you will enjoy it.

I really like how puns are used by the Author, "Piers Anthony". I love this series so much, I have purchased all the books of this series, as I have of, "Incarnations of Immortality". The Incarnations of Immortality" is the first book of that series, as of "Bearing an hourglass", "With a tangled skein", "Wielding a red sword", "Being a green mother. If you are into fantasy, and reading of literal puns, you should love this book.

I'm so impressed with this book!! It was described as "Used-Very Good" condition but it looks brand new. The binding isn't even creased. This is one of my most favorite books/authors and I'm so excited to have it back on my bookshelf. Very very pleased with this purchase.
