The Goblin Tower (The Reluctant King #1) - L. Sprague de Camp

King Jorian was rather attached to his head. Hence, he felt his promise to steal the Kist of Avlen, a treasure trove of ancient manuscripts containing magical lore, was a small enough price to pay for a chance to escape his own beheading.

But when the quest pitted him against one peril after another a murderous wizard and his giant squirrel, a castle full of executioners, a marauding troupe of ape men, and a voluptuous 500-year-old princess who was also a serpent Jorian began to wonder whether he'd made such a good bargain.
