Robert Asprin's Myth-Fits (Myth-Adventures Book 20) Kindle Edition
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…

Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
In this one, MYTH Inc is asked to help with an election that has dragged on for the past five years. (This would be compared to our recent Presidential election in the US, that only felt like it lasted for five years.) I only wish our politicians were as straightforward as the ones in the book. The story skewers the media, and their desire for spectacle over substance, but in a reserved way.
The characters finally feel like they have grown since the place they seemed stuck at since the mid 1980s, and there are threads for at least one other book at the end.
Two minor annoyances (personal taste):
1. Mudslinging metaphor waaaaay too much. It seriously could have taken a couple of dozen less pages, which would have been great to use for...
2. Bunny's family problems. Wow, it must be a pretty big deal, but not even an ominous cliffhanger, just a "Meh, no big deal" and end story. Oh well, i guess in the next book that will get sorted, but it really felt epilog worthy, but just ended up seeming unfinished somehow.
Still well worth the read and it makes me happy to see the franchise in good hands.
The commentary on the insanity of the political process and media influence is both hilarious and dead on. It's like she was channeling Robert Aspirin to write this book.
Long live Skeeve and Aahz!
R.I.P. Robert Asprin, you left the gang in good hands.
