Publisher's Summary

After years as a court magician and inter-dimensional hero, Skeeve needed a rest. So he took some time off to study magic and relax. When a few months later several members of the M.Y.T.H. Inc. Team each ask him to train some talented, young magicians in "practical magic" he has to agree. But after the assassins attack and a manticore tries to eat them, the Khlad mage soon discovers that there is more going on than learning. His students are preparing for a very deadly magical game and you won't believe where. Worse yet, the game may be fixed, and the only way to save his students lives is for Skeeve to risk his own.

Master Skeeve

Skeeve reluctantly takes on six apprentices. Skeeve continues to have integrity, and he tries to instill this in his students. Of course class does not always go smoothly, and they get into one humorous predicament after another. The six apprentices learn to work together, and this proves to be their greatest newly acquired skill. The narrator is spot on once again.

Mythed the Mark

From the start of this series, Asprin had done an excellent job of storytelling and of keeping the reader in doubt as to the final outcome and direction that the end would take. Unfortunately, while I applaud Nye's carrying on of the series, she needs to develop the story a little better, and not make it obvious half way through the book what was going to happen.

The narration was for the most part fine, but I had a serious issue with the "female" voices. In fact, the first time I heard Bunny speak, I about drove off the road in total disappointment!
While I don't really like it when there are two different narators to a book (see Wheel of Time), in this case it would have been a massive upgrade to the overall enjoyment of the book. The publisher did do a very good job of blending together "joint" themes and statements by the characters when speaking in unison. If a little more effort was given to the female voice role, I would have probably rated its performance as 5 stars rather then 4. But I just couldn't take Bunny, Markie, or Tananada's voices at all.
