While trying to ignore the malicious gossip and take comfort in the few friends he has left, Jemis is unwittingly and unwillingly dragged into the lively secret life of the barony. This includes a hidden mermaid, dark cultists, and a rather unseemly dinner party, not to mention the pie of the title.
Aided and abetted by his old friend Mr. Dart and his new employer and unofficial fairy godmother Mrs. Etaris, Jemis attempts to figure out just what has been going on while he was away. The unexpected appearance of a college friend teaches him that he might not have understood what he himself was doing during that time either.
This book has a delightfully wry tone reminiscent of Steven Brust or the Cecelia and Kate novels by Patricia C. Wrede and Caroline Stevermer. The dialogue is sparkling and witty and there's a nice balance between the cozy atmosphere of the bookstore and wild nighttime adventure, mixed with ominous hints of dark, twisted magic in the world beyond.
Most of the loose ends are tied up neatly, while still leaving enough mystery about Jemis' past and future to pique one's interest in his further doings. I'm always a sucker for fantasies of magic, and this one is a delight.
And by the way.Don't be surprised when you start speaking the proper King's English also
