"It's outrageous to suggest that I am a bigot. I'm black!" "I'm a victim, not an oppressor."
Breanna came to Xanth with the Black Wave when she was nine years old. At fifteen, she is the only Mundane, in her group, to possess a magical talent. That talent, however, gets her into a very messy situation. Xeth Zombie, the newly elected "King of the Zombies", is looking for a Queen, and finds Breanna in the wrong place, at the right time. Now, the young woman must find a way to get out of marrying a (Yuck!) Zombie.
In her Adventure she will discover many things, and meet many of the residents of this magical land, and learn many things about Xanth, and herself.
I enjoyed this story which was not only fun, as this entire series continues to be, but taught a lesson or two in the process.
Breanna, a beautiful young newcomer to the enchanted land of Xanth, must deal with a distressing dilemma. She has unwittingly attracted teh affections of King Xeth, ruler of Xanth's Zombies, who yearns to make her Queen of the Undead! her quest to preserve her innocence, and find her destiny, takes her on an exhiliarating excursion packed with perils, puzzle, and piles of puns. Zombi Lover will provde a profusion of macabre merriment for Xanth's many fans.
I love all of his Xanth books. They're innocent but fun.
