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.

The book held my interest throughout with some interesting characters and situations. Only criticism I have is that it was somewhat lacking in action. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

My favourite of the series. Perhaps the long break from the series reinvigorated Mr. Brooks' imagination for it.
The story moved at a good pace, and with the focus on Ben Holiday's daughter, rather than on the usual characters, it made the story and writing seem fresh.

The Landover novels all have a easier pace and more lighthearted feel to them in comparison to the Shannara series, which usually has made me enjoy them less, but not in this case. I enjoyed reading this book immensely.
