Armed with Merrill's cunning, Genie's strength and Melissa's prayers, this all-female band has no trouble raiding ancient ruins - that is, unless a magical seal blocks the way. As an investment, the girls decide to hire a magician... any magician. But all the magicians, except for Louie, prefer reading to raiding. Swallowing their pride (and several pints), the girls take along the loud, brash novice. In return, the hapless Louie gives them all the adventure they can handle... and then some!
