A year has passed since Ben Holiday bought the Magic Kingdom and
claimed his throne - despite the machinations of the wizard Meeks.
Three loyal friends have come to his aid: the incompetent Court
Wizard, Questor Thews; the court scribe, Abernathy, a talking dog;
and the lovely Willow, who is sometimes a tree. When Ben dreams
that a former partner, Miles Bennett, is in grave trouble, he
travels back to Earth - only to find Miles in the best of spirits.
But his return to Landover is not so uneventful: not only has
Willow disappeared and Questor's books of magic been destroyed, but
no one seems to recognise Ben himself. Looks like the magic kingdom
is in real trouble...
