Synopsis

Guido and Nunzio must somehow stop Possiltum’s army from invading everybody. So they join the army to destroy it from within. And hijinks ensue.

 

My Thoughts

The whole book is written from Guido’s point of view, along with his language. So instead of Skeeve blundering through the narration, we get Guido skillfully informing us of the events.

It was a refreshing change at first, but then started getting a little old after nothing was happening. You can only take so much ‘mob talk’ with loquacious asides for so long.Β  Thankfully, there was a bar fight between the soldiers, the town police, the bar patrons and the military police. I was crying I was laughing so hard. But ymmv.

Overall, I found this a refreshing change from Skeeve’s fake it and make it approach to life, and the bickering between him and Ahzz, I didn’t miss that either. A good addition to the Myth books.

Apparently, I skipped the book before this one, M.Y.T.H. Inc. Link, and you know what? It didn’t even seem to matter.

That is one thing I do enjoy about these Myth books. They are a series, but a very loose series where each book can ‘almost’ stand alone. It makes for a fun, enjoyable, no pressure kind of read.

So Skeeve grows up.

Sometimes you just need a dumb, simple, funny and amusing book to read.
This falls in that category extremely well.

Skeeve takes on a poker champion, a character assassin and is all set to start Myth Inc.

Pretty good for one book πŸ™‚

Skeeve, the almighty, takes on an entire army, with some help.

I didn’t laugh as much as in the first book, but this was a solid humor book and I enjoyed the time I spent on it.

I kind of wish that Tanda was either less involved or more. I keep waiting for her to latch on to Skeeve and for the hijinks to ensue…
