Magic Kingdom for Sale/Sold by Terry Brooks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Have you ever seen something in a catalog that was just so fantastic that it was unbelievable? Ben Halliday is a very good lawyer but the loss of his wife and child has left him empty and adrift. Travel to an alternate dimension and reclaim the glory of a magic kingdom? What a phenomenal thought.

Here is his first non-Shannara novel, Terry Brooks has written a gripping story of mystery, magic, and adventure – sure to delight fantasy listeners everywhere.
Landover was a genuine magic kingdom, with fairy folk and wizardry, just as the advertisement promised. But after he purchased it, Ben Holiday learned that there were a few details the ad had failed to mention.
The kingdom was in ruin. The Barons refused to recognize a king, and the peasants were without hope. A dragon was laying waste to the countryside, while an evil witch plotted to destroy everything.
Ben’s only followers were the incompetent court magician; Abernathy, the talking dog who served as court scribe; and the lovely Willow – but she had a habit of putting down roots in the moonlight and turning into a tree. The Paladin, legendary champion of the kings of Landover, seemed to be only a myth and an empty suit of armor.
To put the final touch on the whole affair, Ben soon learned that the Iron Mark, the terrible lord of the demons, had challenged all prospective kings of Landover to duel to the death – a duel that no human could hope to win.
The task of proving his right to be king seemed hopeless. But Ben Holiday was stubborn.
