Book Four in the Magic Kingdom of Landover series Everything should have been quiet and pleasant for Ben Holiday, former Chicago lawyer become sovereign of the Magic Kingdom of Landover. But it wasn't. Horris Kew, conjurer, confidence-man, and trickster, had returned to Landover from Ben's own world. Alas, Horris had not returned of his own volition - he had been sent by the Gorse, a sorcerer of great evil, whom Horris had unwittingly freed from the magic Tangle Box, where it had long ago been imprisoned by the fairy folk. Now it had returned to enslave those who had once dared to condemn it. But first, it would rid Landover of all who could stand in its way . . . Soon Ben found himself imprisoned within the gloom of the Tangle Box, lost in the mists and its labyrinthine ways. The only one who could free Ben from the tangle box was the lady Willow. But she had disappeared, gone from Landover on a mysterious mission of her own. . . Download and start listening now!

    " So, another interesting book. Liked bits, didn't like bits. I appreciated that Terry Brooks kept it clean and without too much detail in a questionable spot or two. Probably the most memorable part was the very end about a certain author... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nic | 1/21/2014

    " I definitely haven't liked these as much as I like the Shannara series. I almost decided to pause in listening to it to take a little break, but decided instead to plow through so I can be done. The story is interesting enough that I want to finish the rest of the books, but the stories seem to bog down in a way that the Shannara ones never did for me. Onward... "

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

    " The Tangle Box was pretty tough to get into. Ben has forgotten himself yet again, from stumbling into another trap, but this time, his main Landover enemies have been trapped with him. Willow goes on a mediocre adventure of her own with the Prism Cat (who I'm sure is fabulous if you are a big fan of cats in general), and the G'home Gnomes play another starring role in beating evil. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Caer Glas | 1/4/2014

    " A plodding, predictable offering from Brooks. While readable, it certainly isn't one I'd put on my bookshelves. "

    " Another adventure in the Magic Kingdom of Landover, and I must say, a rather grand one this time. Perhaps things were not so great in proportion in the series since "Magic Kingdom for Sale: Sold!". Not only does Willow embark on what is, and I do say it with a pure heart, nigh-impossible mission to secure the birth of her child, but Ben is trapped in what is essentially, a nightmare realm. Along with Strabo and Nightshade, I might add. And all of them have had their memories wiped. All of this is the careful doing of what can only be described as an eldritch abomination, released accidentally by the inept conjurer Horris Kew and his right hand man, the talking bird Biggar. So once again it falls into the uncertain hands of Questor Thews and Abernathy to run the kingdom. Naturally, they do not do a wonderful job of it, although Questor, who we see very little of in this novel seems to be handling things pretty well. We do get more time with Aberntathy, which was quite enjoyable and interesting, seeing as how in the past three novels the focus was mostly on Ben, Willow and Questor(despite there being considerable time given to our favourite court scribe in "Wizard at Large", character development was less prominent). Both Ben and Willow's quests are, I must say, near the absurd in difficulty and as such proved to be easily the most interesting segments of the book. The novel, however, is not without flaws - and here we get to the character of Horris Kew. A great concept and very creative in design, I feel that Horris did not get the character development he deserved. And let us face it - we want him back again. He was the cat's pajamas, the bee's knees, if you will. Overall, another wonderful Landover novel with a bit of foreshadowing of the next book's main plot thread, but a must for any fan of the series. "

    " I enjoyed this book. Some great new characters and lots of mystery and adventure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brett Sayles | 12/20/2013

    " Awesome. One more for Terry! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Johnny Brooks | 12/20/2013

    " Favorite of the series so far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 12/9/2013

    " See my review of Magic Kingdom for Sale - Sold. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connie | 11/21/2013

    " This one Ben and Willow have a child, but it is at the end, so you don't know what it looks like. Willow has to go and get soil from 3 different places while Ben is stuck in a fairy world called a Tangle Box. I think I have read these too close together as I am not enjoying them as much now. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Askavi | 11/17/2013

    " Still my favorite one of the series. =) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Doc | 11/6/2013

    " My first venture into Landover. So far, I like the Shannara books better. The narrator did an excellent job with voice characterization. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alex | 10/23/2013

    " a nice fantasy book for a reader wanting a taste of something new. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tara | 10/18/2013

    " The writing is a bit stale, but after writing a hundred fantasy novels I guess you would be ready to use a few cliches. Still it's an easy and enjoyable light read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa D | 9/12/2013

    " I love almost anything that Terry Brooks has written. I thought that this series had a bit of an odd angle to start with but the story grew on me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andy | 6/20/2013

    " Another fun, imaginative entry in the Landover series. This series really draws its strengths from the characters, and I still love the concept of the kingdom of Landover. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Krista | 3/29/2013

    " Started out slow, but the last 50 pages or so were really good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather Young | 3/27/2013

    " I first read Terry Brooks when I was in Junior High....He was better than JRR Tolkien to me! fantastic epic story of good vs evil !!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth Barone | 6/10/2012

    " The Tangle Box is my favorite yet of the Landover series. It was really interesting seeing how some of the main characters acted and interacted without their labels, and it was nice to get to know Strabo and Nightshade better. Read my full review on FreakingBookworm.com! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 4/28/2012

    " I didn't like this as much as the last one, but still very readable. A lot more "character development " and less plot, but still lots of plot and action to keep me interested, especially toward the end. Now on to book five! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kelly Martin | 3/21/2012

    " I was unable to finish this book. It simply failed to hold my interest. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Morgan Watson | 1/22/2012

    " For some reason, this is where the series lost me. It's been far too long, however, to remember details. "

    " Loved it. So much enjoyed the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dawn | 9/16/2011

    " Running out of steam for this series. I think he's a good author, but maybe this much fantasy just isn't my thing. I find myself just skimming the chapters to figure out what's happening in the book, so it will just end quicker. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarajayne | 9/16/2011

    " Another engaging story in the Landover series by Terry Brooks. The first half dragged a bit, but the last half made up for it. "

    " I'm really getting into Terry's style of writing and I like it!! I need to read the next in this series, Witches' Brew, but I've got it on hold, sooo I picked up The Sword of Shannara, and I'm very nearly half-way through... Anyway, The Tangle Box was a gr8 read!! "
