Synopsis

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Terry Brooks's Bearers of the Black Staff.

Ben Holiday, mere mortal turned monarch of the magic kingdom of Landover, has grappled with numerous contenders for his throne, but nothing could have prepared him for the most daunting of challengers: his headstrong teenage daughter, Mistaya. After getting suspended from an exclusive private school in our world, Mistaya is determined to resume her real education—learning sorcery from court wizard Questor Thews—whether her parents like it or not. Then, horrified that a repulsive Landover nobleman seeks to marry her, Mistaya decides that the only way to run her own life is to run away from home.

So begins an eventful odyssey peppered with a formidable dragon, recalcitrant Gnomes, an inscrutable magic cat, a handsome librarian, a sinister sorcerer, and more than a few narrow escapes as fate draws Landover’s intrepid princess into the thick of a mystery that will put her mettle to the test—and possibly bring the kingdom to its knees.

    Disappointing

    This book was very frustrating to read. The author seemed to have forgotten many very important details from the previous books in the series including the timeline and the magical aging of the princess, what certain characters looked like, ect, ect, ect. The list of inconstancy goes on and on. As well, the plot was predictable and rather weak especially when compared to the earlier books. I read the whole thing only to complete the series. It was not worth my reading time.

    Ho-hum

    After reading the rest of the series, this one seemed a bit of a let down.
