Change "Skeeve" to "Griff", "Aahz" to "Mose" and "Bazaar at Deva" to "New Orleans" and you have this book.

Not looking for any more of this series. ( )

Dragon's Wild lives up to Asprin's tradition of well told but quirky stories that you can't help laughing at. It's less out-right farcical than Phule's Company and the Mything series, which means it worked better for me as a humorous read (I'm not really a fan of farce.) Dragon's Wild kept me laughing out loud.

If you are a critical reader, this is not the book for you. Other reviewers criticisms of exposition and weak story are legit. For me the characters, the feel of the Big Easy, the world, and especially the humor more than made up for that, but YMMV. ( )

I got a chance to meet Robert Asprin at a convention back in the 80s, and he was awesome. I've very much enjoyed some of his previous works, and I really wanted to like this one, too. I wish I could rate it higher, but there are some major weaknesses in here, particularly the amount of tedious explanations (really, is there ANYONE who doesn't already know about law enforcement profiling?). It gets to the point where, when you see yet another explanation coming (and you will see them coming), you groan to yourself and start skimming. Actually, I would have appreciated some insight into gambling and odds, but but then suddenly an editor showed up out of nowhere and the one bit that would have been most interesting got skipped. Aw.

And I forgot how very sexist Asprin can be. I mean, he's not Heinlein bad, but lord, it's not good. I would say it's a nice candy sort of book, but the treatment of female characters smacks too much of adolescent fantasy.

Worst part, I bought all three in the series when I found them at Half-Price Books. So I'll probably give the next one a shot. Worst case scenario, it's a fast read. ( )

What ages would I recommend it too? – Eighteen and up. (Too much sex to be legal for teens in the US.)

Length? – Two days to reads.

Characters? – Memorable, several characters.

Setting? – Real World, mostly in New Orleans, around 2000.

Written approximately? – 2008.

Does the story leave questions in the readers mind? – Will the next book prove the women as the true strength and rock?

Any issues the author (or a more recent publisher) should cover? Yes. In one place his bedroom ha no windows for safety, and in another, sunshine streams in. I actually found two typos as well.

Short storyline: The "chosen" male heir, "raised" by a maniacal uncle, suddenly finds out he is a dragon with powers he doesn't know.

Notes for the reader: Many have slammed his treatment of the women a objects. In some ways, yes he does. I can't imagine women being happy being used that way. However, this author has a tendency to show an inner, almost invisible, female strength. This time, though, he had been reading too many Piers Anthony books! I hope the next novel in the series is cleaner, an brings out the true strength of the women. ( )
