An outcast king fights for his throne! A year has passed since Ben Holiday bought the Magic Kingdom and claimed the throne despite the machinations of the wizard Meeks. Three loyal friends had come to his aid: the incompetent Court Wizard, Questor Thews; the court scribe, Abernathy, a talking dog; and the lovely willow, who was sometimes a tree. Now Ben dreamt of a former partner, Miles Bennett, in grave trouble. But when he returned to Earth, Miles was in the best of spirits. His home-coming to Landover was shattered by the disappearance of Willow and the partial destruction of Questor's books of magic. Not only that, no one seemed to recognise Ben himself. And Meeks had taken on Ben's appearance, and the role of king. Ben Holiday and his kingdom were in deep trouble.

The location of the novels centers in a fictional world known as Landover that is populated with numerous magical and fairy creatures. It takes its name from a humorous reference to The Wizard of Oz, particularly its "land over the rainbow".

Magic Kingdom of Landover, Book 2. ISBN 0-345-33528-7. The black unicorn stepped from the morning mists, almost as if born of them, and stared out over the kingdom of Landover. Daybreak hovered at the crest of the eastern horizon, an intruder that peeked from its place of concealment to catch a glimpse of night's swift departure. The silence seemed to deepen further with the appearance of the unicorn - as if that one small event in that one tiny corner was sensed somehow throughout the whole of the valley.

Talk about The Black Unicorn (Magic Kingdom of Landover)

Ben has been Landover's King for over a year when he has a disturbing dream about his friend in Chicago. Strangely the Wizard and Willow have had dreams also and all three leave, as if on a quest, to follow up on these dreams even though they are warned by Abernathy, the talking dog, that there is something suspicious about this. This is a classic fairy tale set up, but we have a modern day ex-lawyer from Chicago who is unfamiliar with both fairy tales and magic. Of course trouble ensues.

One of the best things was the presence of a Prism Cat who dropped hints to Ben throughout. Unfortunately they flew over his head while the reader (me) screams "No, no, no!!! It's obvious, duh." But of course that does make it a lot of fun. I loved the Cat's explanations when Ben tried to pin it down, "I am a Cat and your companion in this, not your mentor..." which totally aggravates him throughout. Kudos to the Cat.

I read the entire Landover series years ago and was happy to see them in Kindle format. I finished the first one - Magic Kingdom for Sale - Sold! and was very disappointed at all the spelling & formatting errors, but since it was free, I couldn't complain too much, right?

So I purchased "The Black Unicorn" - Kindle version. Again, on just about every other page there are misspelled words, formatting errors, strange characters (print type, not story type.) I'm really shocked at how poorly these things have been converted to Kindle format.

As a comparison, I read the Kindle version of the first Shannara trilogy and don't remember any errors, if there were, they were few.

I've written Amazon, got the standard canned (thank you for your feedback) response and also wrote to the publisher - Del Rey but haven't received a reply yet.

I'm taking 2 full stars off this time for the poor conversion to Kindle format. The book is great but since I'm reviewing the Kindle version, it loses points.

I just ordered the 3rd one in the series (stupid, I know) but I'm curious to see if there are still errors. If so, I may ask for a refund.

To summarize: Great book, poor conversion to Kindle format.

In this book of the series, several characters display new characteristics that are surprising and interesting. This is also the first book that a unique fairy creature appears. His is my favorite character in the series so far. My husband and I love this series.

I feel like all I do is give Terry 5 stars when I rate his books, so if I had to give a 4 star, it would be to the Black Unicorn. Why? It's probably my least favorite in the Landover series. I just finished reading it for the second time and although I thoroughly enjoyed it, it just didn't grab me as much as the other books in the series. It reminded me of books like The Last Unicorn and Alice in Wonderland. I am saying this in reference to the Unicorn and Cat charachters in the book. I think Terry was trying to revive some of our old childhood stories and present elements of them in a new light. Still, I loved the book, just not as much as the others:)

This book also turned me against Willow's father. (Really have harsh feeling for him after 'Wizard at Large, haha.)

I will add though that any new readers to the Landover series, will love this book and if you are a fan of the Shanara series, you'll like how the Landover series isn't actually setup like a trilogy, where one book continues into another. They are all chronoligical, but each book presents new adventures, so be prepared for fun, suspense and excitement.

did not love as much as the Shannara series

Familiar tropes are comforting, precisely because they are familiar. This is standard fare to be sure. But if it's well done, that's not necessarily a bad thing. And this is well done. The repetitive nature of the emotional set building is all that prevents me from giving it four stars. Five stars would be for something truly transformative. If you love magical fantasy. This is definitely worth your time and attention.

Another awesome book in this amazing fantasy series. Enjoy, enjoy. Share it with your family.
I love all of Terry Brooks' books! I have almost read all of them. I feel like I know these characters and miss them when not reading about them. I know, sounds crazy, but he really gets you involved in the book.
