Summary

Stile had problems on two different worlds. On Proton he was threatened with murder, and on Phaze, an alternate world ruled by magic, he had to master magic, fight a dragon, win the friendship of a lady unicorn, locate his enemy among the paranoid Adepts and return out of Phaze to win the Great Games on Proton. After that, he was ready to face the real problems!

Adept Piers Anthony Book

I have always liked Piers Anthony. As a young teen, I read all the Adept Series and when I am old, I am still enjoying the skill and fun of his books. Old or young you will like them, if you like SciFi and just to relax.

Deeper than it seems

This series explores the fallacy of racism and exploitation. The destruction of land in the search of riches and what we are willing to do to achieve it. I read these books as a kid and was amazed at its application to our day in the age of Trump and our willingness to rape the land and the subjugation of people and our environment to the detriment to all mankind. I recommend this to all.

really heats up this book.

The story line really builds and matures this "episode." Love it. It's sophisticated yet fun, without being pretentious.

My favourite sci fi and fantasy

I think many visions of the future include domed cities as postulated in this series. I like that idea similar to Walt disneys original documentary on his plans for Epcot. Many scientists today are describing how our intelligent machines will likely one day acquire self awareness. This all seems very likely. Then the book throws in a fantasy realm and a diminishing energy resource akin to oil and gas. And a very very interesting struggle based on gaming on one side and magic on the other.

Another enjoyable escape

Loved escaping back to Phase/Proton again. Trader Burns is easy on the ear and gives life to the story. On to the next one.

Great Book read decently

What made the experience of listening to Juxtaposition the most enjoyable?

The flow and action is almost constant, and unable to stop myself from listening to the entire book in a 24 hour period, the story is well written.

What did you like best about this story?

The mix of science and fantasy, honor, greed, heroes and villains that at times are hard to tell which is which, to be revealed at perfect moments. There are times that I could not help but laugh.

Which character – as performed by Traber Burns – was your favorite?

The main character of course Stile, and then it is a close call between Hulk and Sheen, there others that are great as well, however these are the top characters for me.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did basically listen to the whole book in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

There are better readers for these audible books, however he did a better job then one I am listening to now for the First Book of Swords, this guy is giving me a headache.
