Aahz and Skeeve managed to score an easy relaxing job as the magician to the king of a nearby kingdom, the first task in their easy job? Defeat an entire Army by themselves. They go to the bazaar at Deva to try and hire some mercenaries, and Skeeve accidentally hires 5 people with all of their money. So now it’s down to strategy to figure out how to win.
I really enjoy these books, they’re quick and easy read but the solutions are often a quirky twist that have a lot of real life in them. Plus they’re funny, and you actually get to see the characters grow!
