Overview

A Princess of Landover (Magic Kingdom of Landover Series #6) by Terry Brooks

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.

Overall I did like this book quite a bit. It is definitely a Landover book as opposed to a Shannara book, there is a different feel to the storytelling. As always, the story is accessible but not bogged down into too much detail. I didn't like the entire character of the princess as she seemed mostly about ME and how life is unfair and generally didn't think things through. I don't have teenage kids so maybe that is how they really are. Again, good book and definitely worth the read.

I was dissapointed. I own every book that Terry Brooks has written. and Liked them all. this one was dissapointing. I was expecting much more intrigue, more of the relationship issues between the Daughter and the Father, like the cover says it would have. It was shorter than expected as well. The ending doesn't make all that much sense, because it could have happened much earlier in the story. It seem like there wasn't much to the story and it was streched out in places to make the book longer.

Terry is a better writer than this, but maybe he's burned out. The book is too simple, and doesn't really grab the reader and carry them along. I have all of Terry's other books, and believe this one to be the least interesting. I hope he continues to write, but glad I didn't buy this.
