Once upon a past. . . .

Millie had been a ghost for 800 years. But now, restored by the magic of Xanth, she was again a maddeningly desirable woman. She could have had any man she wanted . . . except the one she did want, Jonathan the zombie. To grant Millie her desire, and to prove his right to rule Xanth in the future, young Magician Dor embarked on a quest for the elixir which would restore Jonathan to full life. 

But the potion could be found only in the past . . . so, through a magic tapestry, to the past he went, taking over the body of a barbarian warrior. The first person he encountered there was Jumper, a giant spider—a nightmare monster, but a staunch friend and much-needed ally in peril-haunted, ancient Xanth. 

Then Dor met Millie—800 years younger, but just as lovely. And he realized that, in his new body, he was no longer twelve years old . . .

    I was gifted this book over 20 years ago, along with a ton of other books by Piers Anthony. Castle Roogna remains my favorite and I still have all the books I was given so many years ago. What a gift.

    I love xanth. I own them all in paperback and am in the process of buying them all again to read on my iPhone. Definitely a rereadable series.
