It's been roughly six years since the previous Phule book was published, and it seems this is the best effort Ace could come up with. I would have preferred to wait another six years for another book of the same quality rather than be duped into buying this ill-conceived and poorly written attempt at trying to cash in on Asprin's creation. I can't imagine that Robert Asprin had much to do with this latest volume of the series, other than by providing a general outline and then allowing Peter Heck to have his way with the Phule universe. I've never read anything by Peter J Heck before and have no idea if this effort is representative of his other work, but I can't imagine that he spent much effort in researching for the book.
Anyone who has read Asprin before will be gravely dissappointed, especially if they've read the previous two books in this series. Characters often behave inconsistently in speech and action, doing and saying things that never would have happened if they were under the control of the original author. It was a painful experience just trying to finish it. The material introduced at the closing of Phule's Paradise is wasted here, with old characters making appearances with no purpose other than to show that they're still alive, and many subplots still left dangling as the book eventually derails, a rollercoaster ride gone horribly wrong. Even the cover art is lame, with Jester looking like a 16 year old with braces. I encourage anyone curious about Asprin's MYTH and Phule series to look at the earlier installments, and not to be put off by this latest.
The bottom line, save yourself the money and the aggravation, and stay the "Heck" away from this one!
Readers - If you are new to Robert Asprin then buy Phules Company and then Phules Paradise but don't bother with this one unless you want the complete set.
Mr. Asprin - What happened? Why was this book so poor compared to the other two? You took long enough to publish it, surely you could tell it wasn't up to your normal level of entertainment?
Most of all I missed the butler. He always imparted quality to the crew. I do hope that Mr. Aspirin will write another Phules Co. book. I hope that only Mr. Aspirin writes it.

This book takes up where Phule's Paradise left off. And it hits the ground running with several problems heaped upon Cpt. Jester's head at once. Not only that, but Gen. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Tank

Let me say right out front that I did not like this book.
The first two books in the series were fun. This one was not. Read more

I loved Phule in the early books. Unfortunately, the series has been going downhill ever since Asprin began collaborating, apparently in an effort to increase his productivity. Read morePublished on July 24, 2006 by Steven Goldmaker
