While the initial battle for Husaquahr has been won, dark forces are gathering to the south. But before the Dark Baron and the Demon Prince can put their plans into action, they need to deal with Throckmorton P. Ruddygore, master sorcerer who suspects that all is not as it should be.
Once again Ruddygore must call on the help of the two humans, Joe and Marge, and together they must face the evil forces that threaten Husaquahr with annihilation. One of the Council of Thirteen has to be the Dark Baron, and the Baron is plotting with the Demon Prince to shatter the fragile peace and bring Armageddon to the magic world beyond the Sea of Dreams.

I've been a fan of fantasy and science fiction since childhhood. I kind burned out on sci-fi and now stick mainly to fantasy.
Somewhere areound the lower middle. it is more for nostalgia than the quality of the story. the narrator did an excellent job, though.
All of Mr. Chalker's books are pretty similar in content. The world and stories may change but he hits the same elements in all his books.
None really stood out that well, although he did a good job with Joe's voic.e
No. This book isn't that deep.
A good continuation of the first book. It isn't anything spectacular but is well narrated and fun. The series goes into the toilet after this one so be warned.
I can't review Jack L. Chalker's work. I knew the author and am too biased. I am thrilled to see it is coming out on audio since so many of his novels are out of print. The Dancing Gods Trilogy is not representative of his body of work. It was his experiment with humorous fantasy. The Well of Souls books, the Changewinds books, and many others would be a better starting place for a reader new to Jack's amazing and often twisted imagination. I would like to see all of his work come out in audio form. He told me once that he never intentionally wrote Trilogies other then this one. All his books were just so long that the publishes insisted he break them up. The performance was fine. It wasn't stellar, but it was OK.
The genius here is the building of a story that pokes joyful fun at fantasy, and, while doing so hold my interest in the outcome.
