Xebdigon Whizzfiddle is a wizard who has to find a quest, get it contracted, and finish it to the letter within 30 days or he'll lose his guild membership status, meaning he'll have to actually work for a living. At the perpetual age of 650, this is really no longer an option.
After interviewing countless people who are looking for a wizard to quest with, Whizzfiddle all but gives up. But then one last questing party arrives, and they're the oddest bunch he's seen in a long time - and being a wizard in the land of Ononokin, that's saying something!
They have to traverse the portals from the Upperworld to the Underworld; deal with Trolls, Ogres, Gorgans, Orcs, and, worst of all...Humans; survive the land of professional salespeople; go through the afterlife; and fight to avoid Whizzfiddle's disgruntled past-apprentice's attempts to thwart them at every turn.
Going through all of this makes Whizzfiddle wonder if maybe he shouldn't just give up magic and go back to his roots of being a farmer.

Terry Pratchett was, and always will be, Amazing! But I think these guys are definitely worthy successors!
I would read it again. i listen to audiobooks in the car - I always find details can get missed meaning I never get bored re-listening.
Loved the characters. They were really diverse and fun.
My favorite bit? The final chapters probably but I guess I shouldn't give details her in case they give too much away.
I used to sit in the car for a few minutes longer at the end of every journey as I didn't want to turn the book off yet.
Funny stories. nicely read. Great combination
