Book Description
Landover was a genuine magic kingdom, complete with fairy folk and wizardry, just as the advertisement had promised. But after he purchased it for a million dollars, Ben Holiday discovered that there were a few details the ad had failed to mention. Such as the fact that the kingdom was falling into ruin. The barons refused to recognize a king and taxes hadn't been collected for years. The dragon, Strabo, was laying waste to the countryside, while the evil witch, Nightshade, was plotting to destroy no less than everything. And if that weren't enough for a prospective king to deal with, Ben soon learned that the Iron Mark, terrible lord of the demons, challenged all pretenders to the throne of Landover to a duel to the death - a duel no mere mortal could hope to win.

    La verdad es que este libro empecé a leerlo sin mucha gana, no sé, un libro como los de antes, tras el batacazo de "The wanderer"... pero mira tú por donde, ha resultado ser realmente un libro como los de antes. No se plantea las cosas como ahora, donde lo importante es la acción, aquí lo importante son los personajes, lo importante es el mundo y lo que pasa es secundario. Como el protagonista, vamos descubriendo el mundo y su historia poco a poco y la verdad es que el mundo de Landover me ha resultado mucho más creíble q muchos otros mundos q me han presentado en muchos otros libros. Hacía tiempo q no disfrutaba descubriendo un nuevo mundo. Y eso que el mundo de Shannara no fue mucho de mi agrado. Igual toca releerlo

    This is one of the only books I've ever stopped reading cause it sucked. Surprising considering I love the Shannara series by Brooks, but then again, the theme and setting of this book is quite different.
