Jody Lynn Nye and Robert Asprin collaborate well. This book captures their enthusiastic and effective writing style and presents another fine addition to the Myth series. The plot is general strong (well, as strong as any for this series) and the book is an enjoyable read. Unusually for a book from this stable, at times I felt the pace flagged and ideas were a bit thin on the ground (hence the three stars). But overall it was a great "throwaway" read. I am not a better man for having read the book. It will not change the world or anyone's view of the world. But it did raise a smile - and occasionally even a chuckle.

Well done story.. the characters are finally growing 10 Dec. 2012
By QuiGonJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Jody Lynn Nye has taken over the reigns completely for Robert Lynn Asprin (he passed away four years ago), and I think she is a very talented writer. In this and the Dragon series, her friendship for Bob shines through, and plotting is getting better, IMO.

In this one, MYTH Inc is asked to help with an election that has dragged on for the past five years. (This would be compared to our recent Presidential election in the US, that only felt like it lasted for five years.) I only wish our politicians were as straightforward as the ones in the book. The story skewers the media, and their desire for spectacle over substance, but in a reserved way.

The characters finally feel like they have grown since the place they seemed stuck at since the mid 1980s, and there are threads for at least one other book at the end.

staying the course 9 Jan. 2013
By Curious - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm so glad Jody Lynne Nye and Robert Aspirin had time enough to work together on this series. Nye stays the course as she navigates the Myth crowd through yet another zany adventure in the style Aspirin molded so many years ago. Thanks!

Better but Still not Captivating 5 July 2013
By Todd Jaffe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I like the MYTH series. I love the humor and the whimsy of the books. But the books are not like they were. They used to keep me reading. Now, I read for a few minutes, put it down, with no qualms.

One of the Better Myths 28 Dec. 2012
By J. Rabe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've been reading the adventures of Myth, Inc. with Skeeve going back to the first one that I bought at a SF convention in Kentucky (Robert Aspirin was there signing books). Jody Lynn Nye is masterful in her take on the world. Pervect! I had to reread a couple of the puns (I'm slow on that stuff sometimes). I loved the take on the election. A former political reporter, I saw a lot of fact behind her fiction. A great read.

The old magic is back 19 May 2013
By J. Whaley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The series has always been enjoyable but after a little transition time I think it is back to the level of the original works. In this book, the characters feel familiar but fresh, and there was a great balance of foreshadowing and plot twists.

Two minor annoyances (personal taste):

1. Mudslinging metaphor waaaaay too much. It seriously could have taken a couple of dozen less pages, which would have been great to use for...

2. Bunny's family problems. Wow, it must be a pretty big deal, but not even an ominous cliffhanger, just a "Meh, no big deal" and end story. Oh well, i guess in the next book that will get sorted, but it really felt epilog worthy, but just ended up seeming unfinished somehow.

Still well worth the read and it makes me happy to see the franchise in good hands.
