""This being Xanth, the adventurers find absurdities, danger, and romance but also find themselves unwittingly involved in extremely complex intrigue. Classic Xanthromancy."" --Booklist on Air Apparent
""Naturally, the quest is successful--Anthony does not trade in tragedy in his best-known series--and what is more, along the way Clio finds true love with the magician Sherlock and meets a good many of the ongoing characters in the Xanth series. …The puns for which the Xanthian corpus is famous are as numerous and outrageous as ever."" --Booklist on Currant Events
""Profusely punning his path through his 26th Xanth fantasy (Up in a Heaval), the prolific Anthony focuses on a contest between Demon Jupiter and Demon Fornax, reviving to great effect the dueling demons theme from last year's Swell Foop…. As they crisscross Xanth, they encounter many of the characters featured in Anthony's previous works. Anthony's latest offering is certain to please fans.” --Publishers Weekly
