Really like tarot or skip a lot ..
Political Geography appendix of clarifies puzzling symbols, enclosing alien conversations - would've helped to know for previous two.

Piers Anthony is my favorite author, but this book was not very good.

Let me clarify that: it is not as good as the first two books in the series -- and some of his other series are better series. BUT, this is actually a great series, and PARTS of this book are great. Maybe even half of the book is great. But the parts that are not great have things that make them terrible. The protagonist behaves very very foolishly sometimes. This book also has more plot holes than any other Piers Anthony book
This book was not as good as the previous two. It doesn't really start to get interesting until the second part of the book.

I liked this one, which was originally supposed to be the final book in the trilogy, but turned out to be the 3d of 5. The series got me interested in learning more about the history & workings of Tarot, too. I'm always amazed by the sheer volume of subjects Anthony has familiarized himself with!
O.K. I've read 3 of this series. Apparently, there is a 4th book, which I do not have.

I think he over-reached on this one. He gets a little tiresome.
An okay book. Became predictable by the end.
