Magic Kingdom For Sale – Sold by Terry Brooks (Magic Kingdom of Landover Series, #1) – 5 Star Review!

51qZtIdI3tL.jpgStory Rating: *****
Cover Rating: A

The Magic Kingdom of Landover series has long been a favorite of mine, having been the first true fantasy series I ever read (a long, LONG time ago). Rereading it for the umpteenth time, I’m still totally in love with the world created by Brooks. This book provides a unique twist of epic fantasy meets dystopian meets modern fantasy. Between the modern world of Ben and the fantasy world he purchases, the subgenres of fantasy are interwoven so flawlessly. A rich cast of characters that are so easy to fall in love with only prove to make the story even more unforgettable.

The cover is eye-catching and offers an accurate depiction of  what readers should expect to find within the story.

  1. My dad doesn’t read all that much these days, but ‘The Sword of Shannara’ is his favorite book. He has this book and it’s sequel on his shelf but I’m not sure he’s actually ever read it. I read ‘The Sword of Shannara’ but I think I might actually like this better, since it’s a combo of different subgenres like you said and not just high fantasy. 🙂

    • Oh, I highly recommend this one! It was the first *real* fantasy series I read when I was young (it’s not really FOR young audiences, but everything my brother did I had to do and he was 8 years older! haha). I do love the way all the subgenres are intertwined. I actually use his high fantasy meets modern fantasy idea for a series I’m working on now. You definitely won’t regret reading it! 🙂
