Publisher's Summary

Skeeve is a magician’s apprentice (and a wanna-be thief) until an assassin’s bolt kills his master, Garkin. Along with Aahz, the green-scaled, purple-tongued demon and master magician summoned by Garkin, he sets out on a quest to get even. The road to vengeance is bound to prove rocky, however, because Skeeve can barely light a candle with his beginning magic, and Aahz has lost his own considerable magical abilities as a consequence of Garkin’s summoning spell. Before they can confront the power-mad wizard who ordered Garkin’s assassination, they must survive a trip to a weird alternate dimension, encounters with Impish hit-men and a somewhat dull but persistent demon hunter who rides a friendly war unicorn, outwit a sharp-dealing Deevel, and deal with other uncanny enemies and even stranger friends...all without killing each other in the process!  

The Green-Haired Lady...“Relax, handsome,” she purred. “You’re about to get pounded for offending my honor. You might as well get a little of the sweet along with the bitter.” Before I could protest further, she kissed me. Long and warm and sweet, she kissed me. I had never been kissed by anyone except my mother. This was different! The fight, the dragon, Aahz, everything faded from my mind. I was lost in the wonder of that moment. “Hey!” A rough hand fell on my shoulder and pulled us apart. “Is this shrimp bothering you, lady?” The person on the other end of that hand was no taller than I was, but he was twice as broad and had short, twisted tusks protruding from his mouth. His cronies had fanned out behind him, effectively boxing me in against the dung-heap. I looked at the girl. She shrugged and backed away. It looked like I was going to have to fight all of them. Me and the dragon. Terrific. I remembered my skinning knife. It wasn’t much, but it was all I had. As casually as I could, I reached behind me and tugged at my shirt, trying to pull it up so I could get at the knife. The knife promptly fell down inside my pants. The wrecking crew started forward.

Not what I expected

This title was recommended by a friend who knew I enjoyed the fantasy genre. I should have checked the reviews. The prose is sophomoric, at best. It may have entertainment value for early and pre-teens, but I suspect most adult readers will find it wanting. There's an attempt at humor throughout that rarely rises above the level of a Bullwinkle cartoon.

Still Great!

I read this series when I was a teenager, and now I'm sharing it with my daughter. The Myth series is so much fun to read and now to listen to. I love the narrator, I feel like he really captures the characters, especially Skeeve and Ahz...although I have to say Tanda is a little disturbing lol. Great job by the author and narrator

Great book, couldn't get past Aahz's voice

The book is the same one you and I remember. It's magical, it's funny, and Noah does a fairly decent, if a bit "meh" performance.

I have an issue, however, with his voicing for Aahz. It reminds me of a mix between Moe from The Simpsons, and Adam Sandler in Little Nicky....not what I was expecting and, while I realize my idea of his voice isn't everyone's, I find the voice unpleasant to listen to after a while.

If you like the book, buy the Audible, it's nice to listen to for a different perspective. Just be prepared for Little Moaahz.

Great start to the series

Loved the printed book as a teen in the 80s.
Magician’s apprentice Skeeve falls in with Aahz, a green “demon” who has lost his magical powers and therefore gets by on his powers of persuasion... or rather by running cons.
The narrator sounds exactly like I always thought the characters would sound.
Magic, humor, and bad pun play. What more can you ask for in YA fiction?
