Spellbound. In a world where one's magical prowess is determined by one's skill with words and ability to spell, Nicodemus is a wizardly apprentice afflicted by a curse that causes him to misspell magical texts. Now, the demon who cursed him has hatched a conspiracy to force Nicodemus to change language and ultimately use it to destroy all human life. As Nico tries to thwart the demon's plan, he faces challenges from all sides. But his biggest challenge is his own disability, which causes him to create chaos wherever he goes. And the chaos surrounding Nico is affecting the world so profoundly that the kingdom to which he has fled to gather strength is on the brink of civil war, and he suspects that his closest allies-even Francesca, whom he loves more than life itself-may be subject to the demon's vast powers. As Nico tries to forestall the apocalypse, he realizes that he doesn't know if he can fully trust anyone, not even the woman he loves. And if he makes one wrong move, not only will his life be forfeit, he may end up destroying all mortal life as well.Introducing new twists to the unique magical system of Spellwright, and exploring issues that will bring readers a deeper appreciation of a fascinating world, Spellbound is sure to please Blake Charlton's fans and increase their number.

Two To The Fifth. The future of Xanth is in frightful peril. A powerful magical bird named Ragna Roc has embarked on a campaign to become absolute ruler of that mystical realm. Those who swear loyalty to him are spared. The rest have simply disappeared. So powerful are Ragna's sorceries that even the Good Magician Humfrey dares not confront him directly. Instead he enlists Cyrus the Cyborg, a handsome half-human playwright with little knowledge of the world, in a stealthy subterfuge. Cyrus must assemble a troupe of traveling players to attract Ragna's interest. And hidden in disguise among the bevy of beautiful young actresses are the young princesses, Melody, Harmony, and Rhythm, whose magics might just be a match for the evil bird. But Ragna has planted a spy in the midst of the troupe, one who knows their deepest secrets, including the true nature of Cyrus's forbidden love for one of the young princesses. Only a mysterious child called Kadence, and a cryptic clue — "Two to the Fifth" — may give the companions the edge they need to defeat Ragna's dictatorial dreams. Brimming with passion and merriment, drama and deception, Piers Anthony's thirty-second Xanth fantasy, Two to the Fifth, is a pun-packed performance sure to provoke applause and ovations from the series' myriad fans.

Something In The Dark. Greedy, arrogant and fearless in his pursuit of gratification, Gerald Evans had few boundaries. But when he was careless with the money and wife of a major crime figure, consequences came in the form of underworld assassins. Although their first attempt to end Gerald's life was successful, doctors and an angelic spirit are able to pull him back from the death that embraced his body and soul. It's then that Gerald's family learns of the magnitude of his corruptions and also of the horrific story he relates about his journey to Hell, and the tortures he endured there during his brief but chilling death. Fearful of ever returning to that terrible place, Gerald is determined to repent his ways, but the killers are just as determined to complete their job. Suspicious of Gerald's story and intentions, his small and vulnerable family will reluctantly put themselves in harm's way to protect a man that has tested their love and violated their trust. At the head of the family, Gerald's brother-in-law, Jayme Harrison, will find himself caught between the influences of Heaven and Hell, assassins and police, while trying to keep the fractured family unified and the man he dislikes alive. Now with lives and souls at stake, they all have good reason to fear something in the dark.
