Sweet Myth-tery of Life – Robert Asprin

When I realized that Asprin had finally gotten back to writing the Myth Adventure series, I reread this title. I’m not sure if it is because I hadn’t read this in ten years, but it didn’t impress me. Our hero Skeeve, the magician, is faced with the dilemma of whether he should marry the lunatic Queen Hemlock. The trouble, I think, is that nothing really happens in this tale. No madcap adventure in strange dimensions, no overcoming devious villains, just Skeeve’s ponderings. To put it simply, it is not the same series that I fell in love with.
