Skeeve was just your average pickpocket until he becomes apprenticed to a magician and if that wasn't change enough his master gets murdered and becomes apprenticed to a demon. No before you freak out in this series demon means dimension traveler, they don't look like humans as we know them but can hide it well. This demons name is Aahz and this is just the beginning of the tale.
I truly enjoyed this story fanciful and full of adventure short but sweet. Definitely worth the read and I'll have to read more of the series.
