Martin Scott's books always zing along. Thraxus is such an unlikely hero, a touch of Sam Spade, a whiff of Rincewind but mostly an original. His appetites are as enormous as his attitudes (anyone expecting political correctness had better not start reading these books) and he romps through each adventure with breathtaking verve and outrageous wit. This book charts Thraxus' attempts to solve the murder of one of the city-state of Turai's more important politicians (by pastry - of all things)set against a background of an imminent invasion by the Orc nations. Thaxus' companions are a delightfully drawn motley-crew ranging from the cities chief sorceress through a merciless female assasin to a half human, quarter orc, quarter elf ex-gladiator with a taste for chainmail bikinis. Things never, ever go well for Thraxus but this time they couldn't get much worse!

"Thraxas at war" is the newest highlight in the Thraxas-series of wonderfully witty Martin Scott. Overweight, old-fashioned, always broke and always grumpy, the private investigator seems to have finally come to an all-time low in this story. War against the Orcs seems to be just a few days away - but the politicians of Turai, the city-state where Thraxas tries to earn his beer, stew and beer, are endlessly discussing instead of acting. As in the other Thraxas-books, also this time Thraxas is up against the establishment as well as his own character-flaws - and of course against hot-blooded Makri, his side-kick and one of the most beautiful half-elf/half-orc women in the whole of literature. When one of Turai's highest-ranking politicians is killed by a poisoned pastry right in front of Thraxas' eyes, the ex-warrior and PI just has to start to go after the truth - and gets more than a mouthful of it ... I don't want to give away the plot, therefore I'll just urge you to read this as well as all other Thraxas-books (they get better and better!) and give you my strongest recommendation for one of the most unusual and most funny fantasy-novels of recent history. Thraxas rules!

Another great instalment in the greatest fantasy series ever. Far better than anything Terry Pratchett has done in the past ten years. If you're a Thraxas/Makri shipper there are encouraging signs - unfortunately I'm a Thraxas/Lisutaris Mistress of the Sky shipper but I still loved it.

A good read if you like odd variants on "swords and sorcery" but I suspect that I should have bought "Thraxas under siege" at the same time as it becomes obvious that they are heavily connected and would have been better read one after another.
