This one has everything I loved about the first two Dying Earth books (great use of language and creative/weird worldbuilding) and also a bit less of what I didn't like. I found Cugel easier to stomach in this book than in Eyes of the Overworld, because he doesn't seem quite as sociopathic, and also because he spends a lot of the book getting his ass handed to him by various people he tries to cheat/exploit, and it's pretty funny.
