Another Xanth adventure featuring the Florida-shaped fantasy land where anything goes and the puns pack every page—though the author admits attempting to restrain their proliferation. Here, young, green-eyed, dark-skinned, beautiful Breanna of the Black Wave, with her safety spell and her talent for seeing in the dark, must somehow repel the unwelcome attentions of Xeth, King of the Zombies, after she accidentally takes a nap in his Pavilion of Love, thereby incurring an obligation to marry him. What more do you need to know? Well, there is one thing. The thrilling Chronicle of the Author’s Teeth continues, this time with three root canals—ouch!—to report. Remember to brush after meals, kids, and visit your dentist regularly.
