Fourth of Brooks's Magic Kingdom of Landover series. For those
unacquainted, widower and lawyer Ben Holiday bought the
otherworldly kingdom of Landover for a million dollars and
unknowingly acquired a heap of trouble. This time out, King Ben
confronts conjurer, trickster, and con man Horris Kew and his
sidekick, Biggar the talking bird. Worse, Horris has been sent from
our world by the powerful and vengeful sorcerer Gorse, who plans to
enslave the fairies of Landover. And soon Ben is trapped in the
foggy, labyrinthine Tangle Box with his erstwhile allies,
Nightshade the witch and Strabo the dragon. Only the lady Willow
can free Ben and friends, but of course Willow has vanished on a
mysterious mission of her own. Solid entertainment for series fans,
and useful comic relief from Brooks's recently completed Shannara
series. (Kirkus Reviews)
Horris Kew, conjuror and confidence-trickster, had returned to the
Magic Kingdom of Landover, and a chorus of disapproval rang in Ben
Holiday's ears. Both Questor Thews, the Court Wizard, and Abernathy
(the Court Scribe who had magically been transformed into a dog)
urged Ben to lock him up or send him away. Fair as ever, Ben
decided to consider the problem rather than act immediately. Alas,
this led to disaster, for Horris had not returned of his own
volition, and been Holiday soon found himself in deadly danger to
which only his lady, Willow, held the key. But Willow had
disappeared on a mysterious mission of her own ...
