      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      could have been a better book

      Demons don't dream is the 16th book in the Xanth series.
      The book was released in 1993. It was released at the same time as the computer game which was named Companions of Xanth.

      The Companions of Xanth game was based on the same storyline as the book I am about to review.
      Starting from book 14th Piers Anthony has rewarded his biggest fans by giving them character roles in the series.

      The book starts off when a character by the name of Dug (this is the correct spelling according to book) has a friend that makes a bet with him.

      It is through the bet Dug is introduced to the companions of Xanth game.

      The companions in the game are Goody Goblin, Horace Centaur, Jenny Elf, Marrow Bones, Metria Demoness, and Nada Naga

      Kim is the second to enter into the game. Kim in real life is a fan of Piers Anthony and was lucky enough to be included as a character in this book.

      Both Kim and Dug must survive all their challenges in order to win the prize of a magic talent and become a citizen of Xanth.

      Part of the game is viewed on their computer screens and then both players are transported to the land of Xanth.

      Kim is the sort of person to quickly rush into things and think about the consequences.

      An example of this is when Kim decides she wants to see the ogres of the Ogre fen and nearly ends up being cooked in a stewing pot.

      In my opinion the way she escapes the ogres could have been better written. Piers could have had Sammy cat find something to distract the ogres while they escaped.

      The companions of Dug and Kim are Jenny Elf and Nada Naga.

      The best plot in the book is that one of companions has to be chosen to mislead the players and a good twist to the storyline.

      Conclusion

      This book should have been enjoyable but I did not like Dug and Kim. They were not interesting enough for the storyline. Piers could have made them to be heroes and heroines or something more that you would imagine for a game that becomes real.
