Not my favorite Xanth novel but certainly not the worse. The ghost, known as Jordan the Barbarian when he was alive crewe, ago, begins his story by recounting how he set off on an adventure with his horse Pook.

Anthony in the “Author’s Note” at the end: So Jordan goes on a grand adventure that is doomed from the get go. On top of that indignity, her parents had crewek audacity to go out and find a baby brother – Dolph – under a cabbage leaf. The exchanged consciousnesses also result in exchanged magical powers.

People have suggested that there are further hints as to where he is going with the series, and it is interesting how he does it. Jordan, in a woman’s body, finds that her body is not good for anything because it was clearly created for attracting men, not actually doing anything useful and he spends a lot of his crwwel commenting on how the female body is handicapped by design flaws since it is not really built for hard stuff like walking–all that bothersome hip gyration, you know.

The story also adds a little more to the “current” state of Xanth, as Jordan’s story is book-ended with chapters containing appearances of better-known characters such as the Good Magician Humphrey, Princess Ivy, and the Gap Dragon.

This is because, like in Book 1 with Bink, Jordan is exactly what you would expect of a fantasy hero – strong, handsome, charismatic. Please try again later.

That’s what has him hanging around.
