    1. Skeeve and Aazh were minding their own business in an inn they ended up owing as a result of the events of the first book Their leisure time was interrupted by a soldier who brought an invitation to the great and powerful magician Skeeve ha to accept a position of a court magician in a nearby kingdom As everybody is well aware a government job is the best one there is it is stable, secure, and usually little or no work is involved do not let me started on benefits.Aazh talked Skeeve into accepti [...]

    2. The story has quite a similar plot, pace and humor as Another Fine Myth the most enjoyable thing, Mr Asprin can give These books are a comic fun with a touch of fantasy and magic to me I ran with my hungry eyes and impatient fingers through Myth Conceptions Of course everything is prepared for the show, so I just enjoyed meeting the main characters, some familiar and loved from the first book and some interesting, new ones To my joy, the Myth world gets bigger, diverse, interesting and fun It s [...]

    3. This is the second book in Robert Asprin s lighthearted and fun Myth series of fantasy books It delivered much the same as the first book Witty dialogue, action, magic, and likable characters.Skeeve is invited to try out for the position of court magician by his master Aahz, who claims it will be an easy job It s not of course, and before long Skeeve finds himself having to defend the whole kingdom against a massive invading army with only the few magical tricks he has mastered so far Lucky for [...]

    4. It s All Smoke and Mirrors27 February 2016 Having somewhat enjoyed the first book, when I was around my friend s house in Adelaide and he was insisting on lending me as many books as possible, despite my protestations at having a huge TBR pile as it is I decided to grab the next couple in the series just to see how well Asprin writes his sequels Mind you, I tend to have a fairly low opinion of sequels, namely because Hollywood tends to have this really bad habit of completely ruining them or cre [...]

    5. 3.5 stars This is the second book in the Myth Adventures series and, like the first book Another Fine Myth, I really enjoyed it These books are fun, light reads that are perfect for when you either need a mood pick me up, or maybe just want to be entertained without having to invest too much grey matter at the same time In this second installment, Skeeve, an apprentice magician, and his teacher Aahz, a demon from another dimension summoned in the first book by Skeeve s dead master, along with th [...]

    6. Usually, when I read books that are part of a series, I prefer to start at the beginning However, my wife picked this second volume of the author s Myth series up at our local flea market, and suggested that we read it together, so I did While it makes some reference to previous events, and many of the characters have prior history with each other, it can be enjoyed well enough as a stand alone.Set in another dimension where magic, or magik, as Asprin spells it here, strictly of the incantationa [...]

    7. Stvarno sam u nedoumici oko ocjenjivanja ove knjige Uop e nije lo a dapa e dobra je ali nekako ne dopire do mene Prva knjiga me uvukla u svoj svjet u zadnjij tre ini a ova tek u zadnje dvi stranice Ocjena 3.5 5

    8. This second installment in the Myth series was a lot of fun It was again full of witty dialogue and fun happenings I liked how Skeeve developed and a characters and the way he dealt with the hard situation he was in I loved the new additions to the team as well as the appearance of some characters from the first book Looking forward to starting the next book.Rating 3.5 stars.

    9. The first half of this book slowly sets our heroes up to be backed into what appears to be a no win situation The second half gets them out in a spectacularly gleeful fashion And then backs them into a corner for the inevitable sequel.Again jokes I didn t get the first time around I read this easily six years before experiencing Shakespeare s Julius Caesar, so the first time around, I was as lost as Aahz s audience for his really bad pun related to it As an adult coming back, I literally facepa [...]

    10. This, the second book in the Myth Adventures series, was the first I read as a book see my review of Another Fine Myth for the full explanation thereof I still had the images from Phil Foglio s comic books to inform my ideas of the characters, but this was a new story to me The focus is less on the process of learning magic and on Skeeve s developing confidence and a bit of an expansion of our understanding of his world and the other worlds nearby.The story, once again, pits Skeeve and his magi [...]

    11. A childhood favorite re visited.Is the story as good as I remember YesWhat ages would I recommend it too Twelve and up While ten to twelve might enjoy it, there are many ideas they will not understand Though, they will certainly get many of the jokes.Length Reasonable for an afternoon.Characters Memorable, several characters.Setting Fantasy, alternate dimensions.Written approximately 1980.Does the story leave questions in the readers mind Ready to read .Any issues the author or a recent publish [...]

    12. Another quick, easy read I liked this book even than the first one The plot was solid I loved the additional characters that were added The humor was spot on and laugh out loud There was intrigue and suspense I read this in less than a day and enjoyed it immensely I find Mr Asprin s writing style a breath of fresh air He does not take himself too seriously, but he knows when to be serious and when to joke I admire his comedic timing, the wit and speed of his dialogue, and the movement of his pr [...]

    13. It has been a while since I read this, but I still recall the Archer and Skeeve s conversation at the battle, where Skeeve built up the Archer s confidence Then the Archer asked him, if you could do that, why do you need me The answer was classic, and wonderful advice to and from a managerial type.

    14. Gleep is my favorite character in this series and he has a fairly important scene in this book Fun, light hearted fantasy.

    15. A good second installment in the series Much of the same tone and humor as the first book Maybe not quite enjoyable the story seemed a bit forced and there weren t really any new beats in terms of character development or plot Still, a fun read.

    16. It s cute, idyllic and heartwarming, true, but that doesn t change the fact that it s almost completely devoid of any kind of literary quality The plot makes no sense too At least the first part was funny.

    17. Even better than the first Vastly entertaining with a lot of subtle and not so subtle humor Still enjoy the easy flow of the writer s style Fun characters.

    18. Cute follow up with mid adventures and magik puns some gaps that I hope get filled in by the following books

    19. This is the second book in Robert Asprin s lighthearted and fun Myth series of fantasy books It delivered much the same as the first book Witty dialogue, action, magic, and likable characters.

    20. One of my most childhood well, teenagerhood possessions is a pair of graphic novels based on Robert Asprin s Myth series, illustrated by Phil Foglio I also read most of the books themselves and enjoyed them nearly as much When I recently decided to re read the first three books Another Fine Myth, Myth Conceptions, and Myth Directions I was surprised to find out how well they held up They re still really fun Now while fun isn t the word I d use to describe most books in the fantasy genre these da [...]
