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.
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.
