      Very helpful



      great cover

      Dragon on a Pedestal is the seventh book in the Xaneth series written by author Piers Anthony.
      Xanth is a world where everyone has at least one magical talent; some of the magical talents would not be considered Magical at all to us as they are things such as sex appeal that for some people it comes naturally.

      The series is written in the same way as Terry Pratchett in that the series seems to be full of puns. The puns become a bit predictable at times but make the story a bit lighter and are not funny as they are meant to be.

      Dragon on A Pedestal carries on five years where Night Mare left off and features the daughter of Queen Irene and King Door. The daughters name is Ivy who has the ability to increase the magical talent of anyone near her.

      The series features many fantasy things that people wish they had like for example this book features the fountain of youth as well as many other things such as chocolate trees etc.
      Some of the books are more geared towards adults than others. This book I feel could be suited for all ages.

      The title of the book refers to when one of the books characters Ivy is so nice to the gap dragon that in her mind she had put him on a pedestal. It's a sweet idea and it would be nice if everything good we believed in became true by just believing in it.
      The book overall is very interesting except for a few minor flaws. There is a forget whirlwind that goes around making the characters in the book you guessed it forget. For me this does not add anything to the books interest. The book could have rather focused more on Ivy's first adventure lost in the wilderness.

      The next book in the series to look forward to is A Caustic Yarn book eight.
