Guido and Nunzio must somehow stop Possiltum’s army from invading everybody. So they join the army to destroy it from within. And hijinks ensue.
The whole book is written from Guido’s point of view, along with his language. So instead of Skeeve blundering through the narration, we get Guido skillfully informing us of the events.
It was a refreshing change at first, but then started getting a little old after nothing was happening. You can only take so much ‘mob talk’ with loquacious asides for so long. Thankfully, there was a bar fight between the soldiers, the town police, the bar patrons and the military police. I was crying I was laughing so hard. But ymmv.
Overall, I found this a refreshing change from Skeeve’s fake it and make it approach to life, and the bickering between him and Ahzz, I didn’t miss that either. A good addition to the Myth books.
