After years as a court magician and inter-dimensional hero, Skeeve needed a rest. So he took some time off to study magic and relax. When a few months later several members of the M.Y.T.H. Inc. Team each ask him to train some talented, young magicians in "practical magic" he has to agree. But after the assassins attack and a manticore tries to eat them, the Khlad mage soon discovers that there is more going on than learning. His students are preparing for a very deadly magical game and you won't believe where. Worse yet, the game may be fixed, and the only way to save his students lives is for Skeeve to risk his own.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Crazy hijinks, fast action, LOL moments and a host of old and new characters. This story was very true to the MYTH universe from beginning to the end. The first two collaborations felt padded and lost pacing at those points. Sit back and enjoy the fun.

Which character – as performed by Noah Michael Levine Noah Michael – was your favorite?

Listen close when the group of students answer a question (or sing) all at the same time. The voice acting and sound engineering produce some of the most unexpected hilarious moments.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listen to most of my books in the car. Going to or from somewhere. Some books, (like this one !) make me pull it up on my computer so I don't miss out on the action. These types of books are treasures that will let you lose yourself in the author's universe.

Bad Sound Engineering

4 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 01-25-11

It is not the narrator's fault that this sounds like a monotone robot. This is a bad transfer. It sounds like they recorded it at one speed, then slowed it down so that many words are now slurred and drawn out. Also I feel that the "robot" problem is also from the transfer, by clipping off the upper and lower ranges of the sound pitches, it now sounds artificial in a lot of places.
