Book Beginnings & Friday56 - Piers Anthony's Dragon on a Pedestal (Xanth # 7)

Yes, I've skipped book 6 in the series. I started it and then remembered it and how it wasn't quite as much fun as the others for me ... and I absolutely loved book 7 eons ago so decided to jump ahead to it.

Amazon Description:
There is trouble in Xanth again. The Gap Dragon had escaped and was ravaging across the land, the forget-spell was causing mass amnesia, three-year old Ivy was headed right for a hungry dragon. Could things get any worse? Probably....
One of my favorite things about this series is how it covers multiple generations of Xanth habitants -- Ivy being the granddaughter of Bink and Chameleon from the first book and Hugo is the son of Good Magician Humfrey and his fifth wife, the Gorgon. I have no idea how many generations have been covered in the years since I fell off my original Xanth kick but I look forward to finding out! 

Chances are good, now, that many will be skipped over in order to be able to read the ARC for the 40th in time since it's archive date on NetGally was moved up ... but I'll definitely then backtrack and cover at least most of them.

As always, Friday 56 (share from the 56th page or 56% mark) is hosted at Freda's Voice & Book Beginnings (share the first few sentences) is at Rose City Reader.


  1. I need to read this series. Seriously. :-)
    Happy weekend!

  2. I do like dragons; this sounds interesting.
