Book Description

14 May 2007 Magic Kingdom of Landover

An outcast king fights for his throne!

A year has passed since Ben Holiday bought the Magic Kingdom and claimed the throne despite the machinations of the wizard Meeks. Three loyal friends had come to his aid: the incompetent Court Wizard, Questor Thews; the court scribe, Abernathy, a talking dog; and the lovely willow, who was sometimes a tree.

Now Ben dreamt of a former partner, Miles Bennett, in grave trouble. But when he returned to Earth, Miles was in the best of spirits. His home-coming to Landover was shattered by the disappearance of Willow and the partial destruction of Questor's books of magic. Not only that, no one seemed to recognise Ben himself. And Meeks had taken on Ben's appearance, and the role of king. Ben Holiday and his kingdom were in deep trouble.

4.0 out of 5 stars Terry Brooks - The Black Unicorn 28 Aug 2002
This is the second book in the series of Terry Brooks's Landover Novels. Ben Holiday is a laywer from Chicago, who a year ago, purchased a Magical Kingdom for $1m. All had been peacefull and calm for the High Lord, until he gets a disturbing dream about his old law partner, Miles Bennett, in the dream Miles is struggling with the work that Ben left behind. Ben can't stand the guilt any longer, and goes back to Chicago to check on his old partner. At the same time Ben's Wizard, Quester Thews, goes off in search of the missing books of magic, as was shown to him in his dream. And a third dream was sent to Willow, Ben's companion, about a black unicorn that she must go in search for. When Ben returns to Landover, he find that Meeks, the old court wizard who had sold Ben the kingdom, had returned to Landover, only to take over in Ben's role. Worse still Meeks has stolen Ben's identity, and Ben appears to everyone as a common worker. This book sees the travels of Ben, searching in vain for the answers to all his questions, where he is accompanied by a prism cat, Edgewood Dirk, who tries to help him get his identity back, before the Kingdom of Landover is lost to the evil Meeks forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and original 4 Sep 2001
By A Customer
This was the first fantasy book I ever read when it first came out, and I enjoyed it so much I have since fallen in love with the genre.
The second in the "Magic Kingdom" series, the book is full of twists, tricks and the excellent and diverse characters of the first book.
A good all round fantasy book, especially for those younger fantasy readers (the novel is more orientated towards magic than battle) For the more mature stories, try Brook's Shannara series.

Need to purchase this Hardback Book, so as I had all of my collection of Terry Brooks novels up to date in this version - therefore making them easier to keep in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Fantasy Series 22 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We have read all this series, and loved it. Best to read the series in order, or might be confusing. Characters good. If you like escapism, this is a great series.

I am sad to say this is probably the worst book from Terry Brooks I've ever read. The first one in this series wasn't a masterpiece either, but this was downright boring. Read more
