Sometimes you just need a dumb, simple, funny and amusing book to read.
This falls in that category extremely well.

Skeeve takes on a poker champion, a character assassin and is all set to start Myth Inc.

Pretty good for one book :) ( )

This is one of my favorite Myth books, because I think it encapsulates the zeitgeist of the series, and puts the relationships of the characters into sharp relief, and demonstrates the dilemma of keeping an ethical position in what are basically un-ethical situations. ( )

Another good story fits well in the timeline. ( )

Sorry but out of the series, this is my least favorite. Just doesn't seem believable to me that all of the characters don't see what's in front of them.

It is a quick enjoyable read though if you don't look too far into it though. ( )

Skeeve's dealt himself a fine mess of trouble this time. First he bluffs his way into a highstakes game of dragon poker and, by some miracle, wins. Then, still flush with luck, Skeeve heads straight for the king of dragon poker, the Sen-Sen Ante Kid. And with a pot of half a million, there'd better not be any myth-deals. But even if Skeeve can hold his own in a highstakes game, there's still Markie. Left as a pint-sized IOU by a player who went broke, she conjures a house full of trouble every time she tries to cast a spell. And to top it off, jealous magicians have hired the notorious assassin, The Axe, to cut more than the deck.… (more)
