DoOoN MODE by Piers Anthony


Email this review


Fourth and—probably—final installment of Anthony's reality-hopping Mode series (Chaos Mode, 1994, etc.) combining alternate-world adventures with advice on hang-ups and personal growth. Here, our often troubled characters—neglected, young-teen rape victim Colene; sexy, magical free-spirit Nona; Darius the magic-powered king of a not-Earth; Seqiro the telepathic horse; Burgess the indescribable alien; and, this time, various Felines, Caprines, Ovines, etc.—must contend with Ddwng, the extremely powerful but similarly distressed emperor of the title's Mode. As previously, the adventure's the baggage, teenager self-help's the point of it all—and if any of it really does help, who are mere reviewers to cavil?
