It took me longer to figure out the plot than it normally does. I was very impressed with this book and was left wanting more.I was very pleased with this book
A year has 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, an 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 dream had been a trap by Meeks, who had returned to the Magic Kingdom as a tiny insect hidden in Ben's clothing. The 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 switch appearances with Ben.
Its not very often that you get a book sequel thats better then the first book, well the black unicorn is one a good advantageous Fantasy with green babes, swords and sorcery and lets not forget the magic of one self belief.
This is great, makes you want to go to Landover yourself...just to see the unicorn. Terry Brooks uses great imagery to paint an amazing picture.
A must read for any fantasy fans.
2nd in the Magic Kingdom of Landover Series. Good series.
Another great story by Terry Brooks
The second in the Kingdom of Landover series. This book was just ok but didn't break much new ground. If you liked the first one, you'll probably like this one. But it features the same characters and addresses the same issues.
Second in a wonderful series beginning with "Kingdom for Sale: Sold"! I love Terry Brooks!
Terry Brooks is a fun author. I very much enjoyed his Shannara series and this new series does not disappoint.
another good book by Brooks.
Very good and fun book to read!!
Pretty good fantasy, not a whole lot of depth to the book, but it is a good story, kept the pages turning.
A "Magic Kingdom of Landover" novel; Ben Holiday bought a Magic Kingdom from an ad in the paper and now his adventures continue with him being outcast from his own kingdom! A fun read.
2nd book in the Magic Kingdom of Landover series. This is a fun, interesting, well written series.
