Description

In the thirty-third thrilling escapade in Piers Anthony's rousing Xanth fantasy series, an adventurous arachnid named Jumper must assume human form to save the enchanted realm from a cosmic peril.
A cataclysmic battle between two all-powerful Demons has severed a mystical connection that joins Xanth to our own world. The key to restoring it is hidden within a cryptic prophecy that Jumper discovers when he is suddenly transformed from spider to man. As he sets out to discern the prophecy's meaning, he gathers about him a half dozen alluring damsels who do their best to help him solve the riddle while vying for his attentions.
But a seductive siren and her demonic consort have determined to use their wiles to lure Jumper and his lovely companions away from their urgent mission. In a madcap adventure that is alternately harrowing and hilarious, they soon discover that danger, deception, and even true love may be found where they least expect it.
In Jumper Cable, master storyteller Piers Anthony spins a wild and witty web of wonder that is sure to captivate fans of fantastic adventure everywhere!

        "This being Xanth, the adventurers find absurdities, danger, and romance but also find themselves unwittingly involved in extremely complex intrigue. Classic Xanthromancy."

      • premium: False
      • source: Booklist on Currant Events
      • content: "Naturally, the quest is successful--Anthony does not trade in tragedy in his best-known series--and what is more, along the way Clio finds true love with the magician Sherlock and meets a good many of the ongoing characters in the Xanth series. ... the puns for which the Xanthian corpus is famous are as numerous and outrageous as ever."
      • premium: False
      • source: Publishers Weekly

      • content: "Profusely punning his path through his 26th Xanth fantasy (Up in a Heaval), the prolific Anthony focuses on a contest between Demon Jupiter and Demon Fornax, reviving to great effect the dueling demons theme from last year's Swell Foop...As they crisscross Xanth, they encounter many of the characters featured in Anthony's previous works. Anthony's latest offering is certain to please fans."

        October 15, 2009
        Caught up by a "narrative hook" and transported to the magical land of Xanth, Jumper the giant spider must, with the aid of a company of young women, reconnect the broken cable that forms a magical connection between Xanth and the mortal world of Mundania to return home. The 33rd installment in master raconteur Anthony's popular series is a tale of friendship, duty, honor, love, and betrayal, liberally spiced with his characteristic wordplay. VERDICT Although the series is aging, with the introduction of more adult themes and risqué situations, as Anthony and his fans are growing older, this book remains suitable for most readers; an essential addition to any library's fantasy collection.
