Myth Conceptions by Robert Asprin



Myth Conceptions by Robert Asprin





MYTH CONCEPTIONS

AUTHOR: ROBERT ASPRIN

ISBN: 0-441-55519-5

ACE (FEBRUARY 1985)



The second book in the "Myth" series



BACK COVER:

A demon who had lost his powers, Aahz still managed to keep his apprentice, Skeeve, out of most kinds of trouble. Then Skeeve was summoned to the court of Rodrick the Fifth of Possiltum to audition for the position of Court Magician. Unfortunately for everyone, he got the job.

How was Aahz going to help Skeeve defend a kingdom against the mightiest invading army in the world? With his pet dragon Gleep and bewitching green-haired Tanda standing by, Skeeve waited for Aahz to come up with a solution. The problem was, if they won they would be executed - and if they lost they would be killed. What kind of magik could beat those odds?

My Opinion Is...
It was a good book. Aahz, as usual, talks Skeeve into doing something he didn't want to do. It backfires. It turns out that Aahz got them in way over their heads. Being a Court Magician was not gonna be a cushy job afterall.

Jokes are still flying all over the place. I had to stop and finish laughing after Ajax had called Brockhurst by another name. It had caught me offguard! I'm gonna have to jot down the list of the other books and see if I can't find the rest.
