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.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

    A punderful romp in Xanth.

    If you enjoy puns and/or parody or just a silly story, the Xanth series is for you. This is a wonderful example of the series. Xanth is one of my favorite series, and this is one of my favorites from the series. Of course, my favorite Xanth book is usually the one I'm reading at the time. Putting together all the Xanth books is definitely on my bucket list. One warning - there are often adult themes in Xanth novels. Don't try to read the to children or you'll violate the Adult Conspiracy. There are sexual situations, but they are usually general and not explicit. I wholeheartedly recommend this book and the entire Xanth series. These books are always fun, and are never serious. Enjoy!
