Book One in the Magic Kingdom of Landover Series

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 the king, and the peasants were without hope. A dragon was laying waste 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 a final touch on the whole affair, Ben soon learned that the Iron Mark, terrible lord of the demons, had challenged all prospective Kings of Landover to a duel to the death - a duel which no human could hope to win.

The task of proving his right to be King seemed hopeless. But Ben Holiday was stubborn. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " 3 1/2 stars. I read this book because Terry Brooks is my husbands favorite author, and although this is not my normal genre I did enjoy it. It was a slower read than I thought it would be, but I think it was because there was so much to set up in the series. I really liked the characters and because of them I am going to continue reading the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dinofly | 2/2/2014

    " Funny, terrifying, well written. Fist book of series. Surprising solution. Great start! Good book when you are feeling down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andy | 1/29/2014

    " Loved this book, and wish I had read it when I was much younger. I thought the concept of a fantasy kingdom accessible by a hiking path in the mountains of Virginia was a very original concept, and the characters and settings in this book made it an enjoyable read. Looking forward to the future volumes in this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cat | 1/26/2014

    " I loved all of this series! Very entertaining read, just loved the character, especially Abernathy,Qwester Thews and Bunion! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Abelcoc | 1/21/2014

    " I truly love sci fi and while Terry Brooks has been around for a while, this was my first time to read any of his books. I loved it! It is easy to read, is a truly imaginative story and I think we all secretly wish we could get off the treadmill of modern life. A good fantasy sci fi book like this one can help us get away at least for a few hours (or days)! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 1/20/2014

    " My husband is a huge Terry Brooks fan and recommended this book to me. I listened to the audio book version and probably enjoyed it more because of it. The concept of the story is pretty far-fetched but the characters are interesting and the dialogue is full of great one liner quips. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Toby Stoops | 1/20/2014

    " One of my favorite summer afternoon reads "

    " Good attempt at a humerous fantasy.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tranylle | 1/13/2014

    " This book started out slow and I didn't like it all that much. But towards the middle it picked up pace and by the end I really liked it. I've gotten the rest of the series put on my MP3 player and am looking forward to reading the rest. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeremy | 12/16/2013

    " This was recommended to me and I found it as a free kindle download so I gave it a read. It was an entertaining light read, but I think I'm just in the mood for books with more meat to them right now. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Em | 12/11/2013

    " I had a really hard time getting into this book, but a little over half way through I started to enjoy it. I'm looking forward to reading the rest. . . "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hristina | 9/25/2012

    " Easy and nice reading, it's not something amazing but it kept me reading till the end. I will read the other too at some point. "

    " If you're under the age of 16, then this is a great book! I loved 'Magic Kingdom' when I was a teenager - and I was totally surprised by the premise. A lot of fun! (Thank you, Terry Brooks, for all the fun teenie books... hey, that rhymes!) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Francesca | 5/16/2011

    " My love for Terry Brooks started with this book.
    The formula is simple: leave it all behind and start a new life ... with wizards, witches, dragons, and many other strange creatures.
    It's pure fantasy and for me it means pure joy.

    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 M | 5/6/2011

    " I remember reading this as a kid. Back then I loved it. Haven't looked at it in years, so no promises on quality. ;) I barely remember the story, but I do remember enjoying it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley | 4/26/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Krista | 4/25/2011

    " Cute story, fast read. A referral from a coworker. The funny thing is that I brought it home to read and my boyfriend recognize the book as something he read when he was around 12 years old! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anoolka | 4/9/2011

    " Borrowed from library, couldn't get into it (I loved the premise but it kind of meandered or just... i don't remember.. not that great main character, I guess? something just didn't work for me) and had to give it back before I finished. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane | 4/8/2011

    " This book was great fun! One amazing adventure follows another in this epic fantasy. Every time the hero overcomes an obstacle, another one looms on the horizon. The characters are quirky and diverse and the plot has so many twists and turns, I almost got dizzy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorrie | 4/4/2011

    " Did you ever want to check out of this world and into another and start over? This is an adventuresome fantasy tale of someone who did and Mr. Brooks writes it so well you feel like you have. One of those you don't want to put down and can't wait to get to the next one in the series. "
