About the Book
Orphaned and blind seven-year-old Callie has a service animal – a goat with extraordinary powers.
Ben Hemoth is a down-on-his luck news reporter facing prison. Needing to save his job and his reputation, he teams up with Venus, a young seductress caught up with a teenage drug gang.
When a mysterious letter arrives detailing a top-secret investigative operation, Ben and Venus think they’ve found their chance for redemption. The mission? Investigate a goat.
In exchange for an extravagant paycheck, Ben and Venus must piece together the wild rumors swirling around Callie, her supernatural goat, and a possible UFO visit.
Piers Anthony’s Service Goat is an extraordinary tale rich with adventure, extraterrestrial visitors, secrecy, dangerous governmental operations, and the classic hints of mischief that readers have come to expect and love from the New York Times bestselling author of the Xanth series.
4 out of 5 stars
Overall, I thought that Service Goat was a really good read, and the plot was very interesting, and the pace of the plot was good. The characterization was pretty good, although I didn't care for the way Venus was written, especially in the beginning when she is so focused on keeping Ben happy.
One problem I had with the way it was written was the changes between chapters. It was not always obvious which characters the reader is with, which can make it a bit confusing.
Genre: Science Fiction
