Juxtaposition is the third book in the adept series written by Piers Anthony.For those that have not read any of the books before Stile is from a futuristic Planet called Proton and he stumbles on a magical land named Phaze.
In this book it carries on where the last book left.Stile had just met the best musician from his home planet and he introduces him into the world of Phaze. The musician goes by the name of Clef.
It seem a bit odd but the book went into further detail of a persons first experience in Phaze when it was something that should have really been in the first book.While moving from Proton to Phaze, Stile has to take part in games tournament in order to determine his future in Proton.
The games could have ended differently it was a bit predictable that Stile would win. If I had written
this part of book I would have made Stile loose and found some other way of getting his citizenship to make this part of the story less predictable.
This is the last book in this trilogy and of course being the last book all questions are answered. Stile discovers who is trying to kill him and what role he has in helping the foreordained. I felt as though the book was giving a bit too much info and the author was trying to answer too many questions in one book.I did not enjoy this book as much as I have the other books because of the above mentioned reason. If you are new to the series I would give this a miss and rather read the other two books Split Infinity and The Blue Adept.
