A Tryst of Fate
You’re better wed than dead — even in Xanth — in the hilariously punny new adventure in the fantasy series soon to be adapted for film and television!
Squid may only be a tween alien cuttlefish, but her feelings for Chaos, her Demon boyfriend, are real, which is why she’s more than ready to let someone else take over as the protagonist of this story. Being a main character is exhausting — and it’s drastically cutting down her flirting time with Chaos. But their alternate future is dependent upon their completion of one final mission...
Seven years from now, in another reality frame, things are not so picture perfect. Squid’s dream of happily ever after turns into happily never after when Chaos’s human host is murdered the night before their wedding. So before they become newly dead instead of newly wed, Squid and Chaos must travel through time in order to meet their maker...
