A hilarious rollercoaster of "myth"-adventure and mayhem,
This review is from: Myth Conceptions (Paperback)
Asprin continues his compelling series of hugely funny fantasy novels, with the scene set thus. Skeeve, an apprentice magician lands the supposedly cushy job of Court Magician to the Kingdom of Possiltum, with the help of his green-scaled loud-mouthed mentor, Aahz. The job, however, turns out to be a total overestimation of his powers, and the pair, along with numerous sidekicks, set about the impossible task of repelling the biggest and best army around. The story is gripping, and the novel is one that certainly will appeal to the British sense of humour (though the spelling might not). A brilliant piece, thoroughly recommended.
