Robot Adept (Apprentice Adept #5) by Piers Anthony 6.00   1

From the bestselling author of the Magic of Xanth books comes the new novel in the acclaimed Apprentice Adept series – the eagerly awaited sequel to Out of Phaze.

Rarely has contemporary fantasy achieved such scope and richness as in the works of Piers Anthony. Witty, sexy, challenging and delightful, Robot Adept is a paramount example of his unique and irresistible genius.

In his latest volume, Piers Anthony continues the saga of Mach, the brave and sensitive robot from Proton, and his alternate self, magical Bane from Phaze, as they fight to keep the loves they found and save their worlds from destruction.

Having discovered how to change places with their alter egos, Mach and Bane fall into forbidden love, but their delights are short-lived when bitter feuding erupts within and between the two frames. For Proton and Phaze are ripe with the seeds of revolution. As the only ones capable of communicating between the frames, Mach and Bane hold the power to link the two warring systems – or destroy them entirely!

Hunted by the Contrary Citizens in Proton and forced into an uneasy alliance with their counterparts in Phaze, Mach and Bane and their lovers are caught in a web of intrigue for which they are ill prepared. Novices in ploitics and warfare, they must learn to play both political factions off each other, switching loyalties and identities at the blink of an eye, while racing against the clock to save the worlds they love from harm.

Laced throughout with the magical creatures and scientific wonders that have made Piers Anthony famous, Robot Adept takes readers on an ever more thrilling journey through a cosmos of romance and danger, full of amazing spells, heart-stopping contests, young love and ancient wisdom.
