Book 3 of the series. These have been fun to read, with dragons and chimaeras and super-sized snakes. Poor Kelvin doesn't want to be the hero of the prophecy, but he keeps getting into these strange situations and ends up saving his friends, or even the whole kingdom. Very enjoyable.

I thought this was the best book of the trilogy partly because I saw evidence of Piers Anthony in some of the characters. I particularly enjoyed the Chimaera. I'm glad the trilogy is over and do not intend to search for other Anthony & Margroff collaborations.

This one might deserve 1.5 stars, but barely.

Piers Anthony's novels tend to be fun even if they are very often simplistic. But this book is the same damn story again. Dragon's Gold captivated me as a child. I loved it. By the time I got to this, the 3rd novel in the series, I was incredibly bored. Even as a 12 year old I was able to see that he was just putting a new skin on the same story just to sell a few more books.

If you want to read good Piers Anthony, read Dragon's Gold, The first 3 Xanth
Gavin Greig
A sequel to Dragon's Gold (which I have read) and Serpent's Silver (which I haven't, but don't feel I've missed anything much). Feels like it's pushing the premise just a little too far; alternate worlds are all very fine, but they can start to get just too repetitive.
