Overview


 A CAMPAIGN OF MYTH-INFORMATION
 
Since it was founded, M.Y.T.H., Inc. has dealt with all manner of vile and evil creatures. But not even a magician of Skeeve’s caliber is prepared to face the most duplicitous monsters of all: politicians. Emo Weavil and his cousin Wilmer Weavil-Scuttil have been running against each other for governor of the island of Bokromi—for five years. Their magical mudslinging (literal and otherwise) strategies continue to postpone the election, leaving the realm in a state of leaderless chaos.
 
Hired to moderate a fair and balanced race between the candidates, Skeeve and Bunny attempt to clean up the dirty politics, only to become targets of the tabloids and paparazzi who are more interested in innuendo than in the facts…

    To the first reviewer

    Robert Aspirin passed away in 2008, and the remaing books will be written by Nye. There is always a stylistic difference between authors, but I've been pleased with Nye's work thus far.

    It's a good read.

    As a rabid fan of the Myth Adventures series I'm extremely thankful that Jody has been able to continue it.

    This was a good book. I found it a little on the short side and the story went a little too fast. It would have been nice for the story to develop a little more or have a few more sub arcs in it. I also thought Aahz was a little too obviously touchy feely, making him feel slightly out of character on occasion.

    I'm sure it's incredibly difficult trying to continue Robert's work and it's never going to be the same as the both of them working together. No matter what Jody does it won't be good enough for many folks. I for one am very thankful Jody didn't let the series die.

    Thank you Jody.

    Not the same...

    This book lacks the comedic flair and light humor of the previous novels. A poor attempt at best.

    Robert is dead...this is a new author...

    Yes it will be hard, but a new writer must start slow.

    Not up to snuff with the rest of the series

    I love the Myth series, but I think Robert was tired when he knocked this one out. The story line is too predictable and cliche, and the humor factor is not what it usually is. I couldn't put the book down, but not because I loved it, rather because I couldn't wait to get through with it, so I could move on to something more interesting.

    I'm betting that Mr. Asprin will be back to normal and in his usual wonderful form, by the tine the next book in the series is released.
