Jody Lynn Nye has taken over the reigns completely for Robert Lynn Asprin (he passed away four years ago), and I think she is a very talented writer. In this and the Dragon series, her friendship for Bob shines through, and plotting is getting better, IMO.

In this one, MYTH Inc is asked to help with an election that has dragged on for the past five years. (This would be compared to our recent Presidential election in the US, that only felt like it lasted for five years.) I only wish our politicians were as straightforward as the ones in the book. The story skewers the media, and their desire for spectacle over substance, but in a reserved way.

The characters finally feel like they have grown since the place they seemed stuck at since the mid 1980s, and there are threads for at least one other book at the end.

I'm so glad Jody Lynne Nye and Robert Aspirin had time enough to work together on this series. Nye stays the course as she navigates the Myth crowd through yet another zany adventure in the style Aspirin molded so many years ago. Thanks!

The series has always been enjoyable but after a little transition time I think it is back to the level of the original works. In this book, the characters feel familiar but fresh, and there was a great balance of foreshadowing and plot twists.

Two minor annoyances (personal taste):

1. Mudslinging metaphor waaaaay too much. It seriously could have taken a couple of dozen less pages, which would have been great to use for...

2. Bunny's family problems. Wow, it must be a pretty big deal, but not even an ominous cliffhanger, just a "Meh, no big deal" and end story. Oh well, i guess in the next book that will get sorted, but it really felt epilog worthy, but just ended up seeming unfinished somehow.

Still well worth the read and it makes me happy to see the franchise in good hands.

All I'll say is if you're apprehensive Nye is flying solo with our beloved characters, you don't have to worry. She's good, the book is good, and Mister Aspirin can rest easy and be proud of his friend's work...

Myth-Quoted (2012) is the nineteenth Fantasy novel in the Myth series, following Myth-Fortunes. The initial volume in this sequence is Another Fine Myth.

In the previous volume, Aahz got a visit by an Imp salesman and asked Skeeve to listen to the proposition. After several death threats, Skeeve and Aahz finally got the Imp to present the core of the deal. Samwise was having onsite accidents that cut into the construction schedule.

Skeeve and Aahz visited Aegis with Samwise. Their dimensional hop brought them into the dark interior of the tomb of Waycross. Getting out of the tomb was rather strenuous, but finally they all emerged into the bright and hot day.

The environment was much like the Bazaar on Deva. The natives mostly seemed to have animal heads and feet, but some looked like Klahds. On the way to his office, Samwise showed Aahz and Skeeve the shining white pyramid built by Diksen.

In his office, Samwise explained his prior experience and his brilliant financing scheme. He also renewed his sales pitch on memorial stones and hooked Aahz on taking a top stone. Aahz claimed that he wanted to leave a legacy for the future.

In this novel, Skeeve is a Klahd from the Klah dimension. He was an apprentice magician in Klah, but has grown in skills and reputation under Aahz. He had originally started M.Y.T.H., Inc., with a few friends.

Aahz is a Pervect from Perv. He is big, green, scaly and has four inch long teeth. He is a fearsome sight, but is also Skeeve's mentor and friend.

Bunny is also a Klahd.

I've been a fan of the series for years. I think when I started on it there were 3 books out. Robert Asprin started the series, taking on Ms. Nye near the end of his life as a co-writer with some projects. I think she does better with the Dragon books. There is something missing here... it starts well enough, with Skeeve, Aahz, and the usually underused Bunny off to oversee an election. The first few events/stunts run well, but we keep getting more silly stunts without really seeming to GO anywhere. Skeeve is being outclassed as a magician left and right - his reputation is going to go down. Aahz soon returns to the Bazaar, though he will be back rather spectacularly. The chemistry between Skeeve and Bunny is gone. No hints of her being in love with him, and him being usually clueless. Most of the crew do not appear - Guido had 5-10 lines, Nunzio is often said to be standing by Guido, Gleep tags along as much to show "Hey, we have a dragon!", there are references to Massha and Don Bruce, not even that much to Chumley, or Gus, or Markie. There are foreshadowings of something bubbling behind the scenes that may come in another book. The ending they pull a rabbit out of Aahz' s hat that I still do not quite understand. The quotes opening the chapters are still good, though.. Decent book, but not as good as the early ones.
