Another Thraxas adventure by Martin Scott! The UK editions are only a couple of hundred pages long, so they're quick reads. (Some of them get bundled together in the US as two-for-ones.) Note that not all of the Thraxas books have been released State-side. This volume is Book 5 in the series, but Books 3 and 4 don't appear to have made it over to America as yet.
At any rate, I found this particular outing (which makes copious references to Book 4) to be the funniest of the lot so far. Here, our intrepid hero has to track down a lost magical amulet for the city's leading sorceress, who spends rather too much time on the water-pipe. Every time Thraxas gets near the missing item, he finds a pile of bodies and just misses recovering the coveted object. Soon the entire city is taking bets on how many people will die before he wraps up his case. Meanwhile, he spends part of his time alternating between despair-driven plots to flee the city and flights of braggadocio. (As he reflects on one success, he cannot help but congratulate himself. "It was inevitable, really. It was more or less bound to happen.") But mostly he sulks over not getting invited to his client's upcoming fabulous party, especially since his young associate Makri gets to go. Good stuff from a strong ongoing series.

This book was great.Like the rest of the series it starts with the mirth and action right from the start.
I don't like to give to much info on the book because it might spoil your total enjoyment of this book but
it starts with the city government coming to Tharaxas for help naming the most high sorcerer in the city
to the leadership of the sorcerers guild.And by high I mean the most drugged up sorcerer in the city!!!
This demand for help means an unwanted powerful postion for Tharaxas that leads trouble and a killer
on the loose making his job harder.

Business is a bit slow for Thraxas, but he perks up a bit when he learns that the Sorcerers are meeting in the city to decide who should run their outfit.

Thraxas, to quote, was 'as happy as an elf in a tree'. He knew that this would involve mayhem and murder, and as overflow, he was likely to get a job out of the whole situation.

Martin Scott's THRAXAS AND THE SORCERERS joins others in the Thraxas series and will best be appreciated by prior fans. Here winter has come to Turai and Thraxas is hired to go undercover at the Sorcerers' Guild elections to be sure the right man is elected. Politics becomes complex and envelopes his life in this riveting adventure.
