A Princess of Landover

A Princess of Landover Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

 

Synopsis:

The Magic Kingdom series about a Chicago lawyer who buys a fantasy kingdom--complete with dragons, demons, disgruntled noblemen, and a passel of problems--picks up with the tale of a 15-year-old who uncovers a magical plot that could spell the end of all Landover.
