Dreams of trouble, missing spellbooks, and a black unicorn send Ben Holiday, Landover's newest king, his wizard, Questor, and the sylph, Willow, on three separate quests that converge in a battle for control of their magical kingdom. This sequel to Magic Kingdom for SaleSold! contains the same welcome touches of humor as its predecessor and confirms Brooks's talent for light fantasy. JC

It all started with three dreams, each sent to a different person. To Ben Holiday, there came a dream about his old law partner and close friend Miles Bennett. TO Questor Thews, there came a dream about a pair of ancient books of magic which had been lost for centuries. To the Sylph girl Willow, there was sent a dream of a mysterious black Unicorn, a being reputed to be not a fairy but a demon. As expected, each of these three feel compelled to test the accuracy of their dreams.
Ben returns to Chicago only to discover that, far from being in any kind of trouble, Miles is actually doing quite well. Convinced that his dream was a lie, Ben returns to Landover. When Questor returns with the missing Books of Magic, it is revealed that one of these books appears to have been burned up from within, while the other contains drawings of unicorns. It may or may not pertain to the legend of a black unicorn. It does seem to have something to do with the legend of a large number of unicorns who mysteriously disappeared while on a journey through the valley of Landover to other worlds. Perhaps these unicorns and the black one are linked in some way?
Later in his bedroom, Ben encounters the former court wizard, a man named Meeks.Read more ›
Perhaps this book is necessary for those who want to follow the series, but, certainly, this is not the most interesting one.
