A year had 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 dreams had been a trap by Meeks, who had returned to the Magic Kingdom as a tiny insect hidden in Ben's clothing. That 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.

Ben found himself outcast, no longer recognized by any friend, though all his powerful enemies seemed to know him. Without the medallion, he couldn't seek the help of the Paladin against Meeks. There was only the prism cat - whatever that might be!

And where was Willow - and the mysterious black unicorn she'd set out to find? Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vibhu Ashok | 2/14/2014

    " A book that takes us to another realm, where there are unicorn, magicians and most importantly moral values :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaye | 2/12/2014

    " Ben's troubles begin again when he and his friends are led astray from some seemingly prophetic dreams. The adventure isn't wildly thrilling, but it has its moments. It was good enough to make me want to read further, but not nearly as good as the first book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracey Jackson | 1/29/2014

    " I loved this fantasy drama. It was part of a series of books, but quite able to be read alone. A must read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon Appelcline | 1/27/2014

    " A fair fantasy book. It only really rises above the herd by the fact that it centers on a mystery that the characters must solve. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca McKinnon | 1/25/2014

    " This one was a little harder for me to get into at the start. It was good but didn't grip me--until the prism cat showed up. After that it went much more quickly! "

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

    " I liked how they found out more about the history of wizards and the Kingdom in this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dan | 1/18/2014

    " This book almost seems a re-hash of the first in the series with Ben doing many of the same or very similar things. Also, the reader of the audiobook leaves much to be desired. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicholas Allen | 1/15/2014

    " Although I'm enjoying this seires, it's not nearly as good as Mr. Brooks Shannara series. The Magic Kingdom of Landover is full of your classic fantasy characters and elements but just misses that certain thing that takes it from being good to being great and makes it hard to put down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 1/11/2014

    " Book 2 in the Magic Kingdom of Landover series. This was one of his slow ones. It was worth reading, but not as great as the first one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 1/5/2014

    " Second book in the series, and better than the first because everything is established already - plus the swearing character doesn't appear often. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Crazy Uncle Ryan | 12/17/2013

    " I really liked this series. The whole concept was extremely creative and I really liked the characters. I also liked the way Terry Brooks was able to kind of blend science fiction and fantasy together. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cherie | 11/22/2013

    " This book was beautifully written, however, it was really hard to visualize the setting. I am glad it was a short book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ian Krueger | 11/10/2013

    " good. need to finish rest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 7/12/2013

    " Just as good ass I remembered from many years ago. Now getting into unknown territory with book 3. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Derrick | 6/17/2013

    " Meeks tries to take over Landover again and it is shown that the Books of Magic are actually captured unicorns, whose magic is siphoned and used. It is like Brooks has taken the whole WORLD of Shannara and tried to push it into one small fairy land. It was interesting, but rather flat. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 6/12/2013

    " Continuation of the "The Magic Kingdom of Landover".It is the 2nd book in the series of 5. It was a nice read to get away from the everyday. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 5/3/2013

    " I enjoyed this 2nd book in the Landover series. Very entertaining. You could kind of see where this was going, but it was fun watching it transpire. Am looking forward to reading the next one in the series! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eeverson | 3/27/2013

    " realy good read. enjoyed every page "

    " after reading the first book i had to go on "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 February Four | 3/30/2012

    " Ben (and everyone else) can be just a little too obtuse sometimes, but other than that, I enjoyed it. Honestly, though, I look forward to the next book, which I think is about Questor. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 10/31/2011

    " This was a shorter book, but MUCH harder to get through than the others. It was an interesting story, just harder to get through. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Sammis | 10/11/2011

    " I was so addicted to this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 9/10/2011

    " I heard that another book in this series was coming out, so I decided to re-read the series since it has been so long. I really enjoy the world Brooks has created. There are interesting characters and a good moral to the stories. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sammy | 5/9/2011

    " I read this in middle school, and i barely remember it...but from what I do remember of it it was pretty good. "

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

    " I raced through this one as well. A little more mystery to figure through in this one with an ending that wraps up so well you wonder what he will come up with next for the kingdom of Landover. I am going to book a trip to Virginia and see if I can find the portal... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 3/14/2011

    " Pretty good. I like the name of Ben's horse. lol "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert | 10/14/2010

    " This was just as good as Magic Kingdom for Sale. I am still a little disappointed in this series as I am a big fan of Terry Brooks! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 9/25/2010

    " Much better than the first one and still simple fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Weebly | 9/5/2010

    " It was great catching up with Ben and the rest of his Landover chums as the evil Meeks tries to plan his revenge. Great book, story flowed well and I am looking forward to the next on ein the series. "

    " Great book. Better pacing and much less dull points than the first book. I really enjoyed the plot and characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tara | 6/22/2010

    " These are fairly decent books and I thought this one was interesting. I can't say I was totally enthralled but I enjoyed myself. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaye | 5/28/2010

    " Ben's troubles begin again when he and his friends are led astray from some seemingly prophetic dreams. The adventure isn't wildly thrilling, but it has its moments. It was good enough to make me want to read further, but not nearly as good as the first book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 5/26/2010

    " This fantasy novel is probably just right for its intended younger audience. I didn't find anything particularly annoying about it, and some of the bits were good. But mostly it was pretty standard quest-fantasy. I'll continue reading the series. "
