Publisher's Summary

A year had passed since Ben Holiday bought the Magic Kingdom from the wizard Meeks, who had set a series of pitfalls against him. Ben survived, by the aid of three loyal friends: Questor Thews, and ill-trained wizard; Abernathy, a talking dog, the court scribe; and the lovely Willow, who sometimes had to be a tree.

But Ben had been troubled by dreams of disaster to his former partner, Miles Bennett. Yet when he returned to Earth, Ben found Miles doing splendidly.

Unknown to Ben, the dreams had been a trap by Meeks, who had returned to the Magic Kingdom as a tiny insect hidden in Ben's clothing. That first night back in Landover, Ben awoke to see Meeks gloating over him. claiming to have the medallion that could summon the mysterious knight-protector, the Paladin, and that he had cast a spell to witch appearances with Ben.

Ben found himself outcast, no longer recognized by any friend, though all his powerful enemies seemed to know him. Without the medallion, he couldn't seek the help of the Paladin against Meeks. There was only the prism cat - whatever that might be!

And where was Willow - and the mysterious black unicorn she'd set out to find?

Brooks delivers again

I love Terry Brooks' writing because he always delivers. He's benevolent and his books are always a joy, even at their darkest or most plodding. This book was a little frustrating in parts because I had guessed the twist almost immediately (as I'm guessing most readers will) and was not fond of the peril wrought from it. Still, eventually Brooks brings everything together and delivers an ending which is pleasing in every way. The book has shades of some of the great works of fantasy literature - Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz, The Last Unicorn, the Elric Saga & the novelization of the movie Willow - and the story is able to remain unique. Four stars.

Great book 2 in the Landover series

Great voice work and good story. Like the Disc World Series (especially Going Postal or Reaper Man), this audible version actually makes the story better.
