Publisher's Summary

Business is slow for M.Y.T.H., Inc., and its president, Bunny, is getting nervous that the company might not meet its quarterly goal. So when a job comes in that's worth an absurd amount of gold - and also happens to take them to Winslow, the most luxurious vacation resort in any dimension - the team jumps at the opportunity to recoup some cash and maybe catch some R&R.

Only, magician Skeeve has an unsettling feeling that this mission might be trickier than it seems. Someone in Winslow is messing with the magic lines and working hard to ensure that the M.Y.T.H. crew gets nowhere near the powerful relic that they've been hired to find. And as the mysterious manipulation turns deadly, Skeeve, Bunny, Aahz, and the rest of their partners find themselves in a race not only to finish the job, but also to escape paradise alive.

Should have kept Noah Michael Levine as Narrator!

What did you love best about Robert Asprin's Myth-Fits?

Jody has done a great job at Keeping Robert Asprin's characters alive and in the spirit of the original.

What didn’t you like about Kyle McCarley’s performance?

All of the characters sound like they are whining in the book- he doesn't capture the essence of the characters like the previous narrator.

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

I couldn't. I love the stories, but honestly, the narrator was putting me off, so I could only listen in pieces.

Any additional comments?

Bring back Noah Michael Levine

They need to redo this book with Michael Levine.

People in this business who are professionals should know better than to change narrators in an established series. Especially with such inferior narrator. Now I can wait to see if they redo it with the proper narrator.They did that with a Harry Dresden book (much to my relief). Personally I'd rather wait months while they work out whatever problem they are having with the narrator. Maybe this narrator was good on another series, but not this one. Narrators help to put the character in the characters. So when you change narrators in an established series it changes the characters.

Had to suffer through the narrator

Have enjoyed this series with the previous narrator. Had to struggle to get through with this narrator. His voice was very unpleasant and lacked expression.

And on the 20th Book you change Narrators

If you could sum up Robert Asprin's Myth-Fits in three words, what would they be?

Great Series

Who was your favorite character and why?

Skieve, The main character of the book to which you can always relate

How could the performance have been better?

The original Narrator, by changing narrators on the last book shows the author is more interested in herself than the series

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes I cried ... because I could not stand the narrators voice

Any additional comments?

I have not finished this book after listening to the previous 19 books, nor will I. Neither shaall I ever purchase another book by Jody Lynn Nye. She shows she comes before her readers which is the opposite of what any good author does.

Really good addition

Ms Nye is doing a great job carrying on with the Myth series. This book stayed true to Robert's original work. The performance was great as well as the development of the supporting characters. If you liked this series, you will enjoy this book.

I enjoyed the story but I prefer Noah Michael Levine's narration mainly because I'm used to his characters.

An enjoyable addition to the Myth series

I enjoyed listening to this Myth novel. The characters felt authentic and I loved the narration. I really hope there will be further novels in this series.

ok

Not near as good as Asprin.
Could not even finish it. She made Skeeve into a sniffling coward who can't do magic.
The narrator sounded like a gelded soyboy. I could not listen without getting annoyed. I tried to give it a chance because I love the Myth Adventures and I only had 2 hours left. I just could not handle the torture anymore.

Being Back Levine

I listened to the story, but it was like enduring a complete cast change on your favorite soap; you want to see where it goes, bit can't deal with the replacements. Very disappointed in the lack of performance, the voice characterizations made no sense, and the was no life to the reading.

Don't Myth Out. This is a must read, or listen.

Enjoyed the furthering adventures of my favorite crew Myth-ing Inc. Hope to see Harooon join the crew
