Imbri is a night mare recently turned day mare. She bears a message to the king to "Beware the Horseman" and "Break the Chain". He did not the warning seriously enough, and now Xanth is facing the Nextwave of Mundanes without their experienced king.
The review of this Book prepared by Nikki Moon

It is time for Nextwave in Xanth. The invasion of the Mundanes. They encounter the magical dangers of Xanth. Imbri, a Night Mare is sent to the King, Trent to act as a messenger to warn of the invasion. Slowly the kings keep disappearing locked into a sightless open-eyed sleep.
The review of this Book prepared by Shawn Vaillancourt

Oh no! The Nextwave of invaders have come to conquer Xanth, and they mean business! Mare Imbri, one of the gourd world's Night Mares, is selected to be the liasion between the gourd world and Xanth proper, but no one can understand her message... "Beware the Horseman!" King Trent has been stricken ill, and just as temporary King Dor becomes competent at repeling the Mundane army, he too gets stricken. As each of the few remaining Magician-class men take the throne, the same thing happens to them. At the rate they're going, who will save Xanth from the invading horde?
