Thraxas and the Sorcerers is the fifth book in the series. With the city still gripped by a fierce winter, the only thing Thraxas wants to do is drink beer in front of a roaring fire. To his annoyance, the city authorities won't let him rest. Every Sorcerer in the West is heading for Turai to elect a new leader. The Turanian government is desperate for their own candidate to win. This will require cheating, bribery and corruption on a massive scale. Naturally, the authorities turn to Thraxas and Makri for help. As they do their best to support Lisutaris - herself a notably intoxicated sorcerer - the Sorcerers Assemblage turns into the most riotously debauched affair ever seen in Turai. This is a new edition with an introduction by the author.
