    Ive been working on these two novels for a bit. Though this series has been a fun romp, I was ultimately underwhelmed by the ending. A 4 star series the way through with the humor and the loveable characters.

    The Tangle Box I finished this book on 8/24/18. The plot was ok on this one, kind of vaguely annoying. People have no clue what they are doing. Strabo is still the best. Witches’ Brew I started this in the omnibus and then continued this in the paperback.

    I loved the beginning of this series; however, I felt as if there were really only a last installment of follow up worth of material. I live Terry Brooks writing style, but this was very disappointing end to what could have been a cute young adult series.

    A Good Read Terry Brooks imagination is exquisite. The Kingdom of Landover is one mans answer to his life. His adventures are exciting and interesting. Both good and evil are explored leaving the reader wanting more.

    As some other reviewers state, this is bubblegum fantasy. This is the type of book you give younger students and introduce them to fantasy. This is a very by the numbers book and it is pretty vanilla when it comes to the range of emotions. It's not necessarily bad writing but just a rehashing of plot points over and over. The supporting characters are pretty stock and the situations get resolved essentially the same way. I will finish the series because book 6 actually sounds pretty entertaining As some other reviewers state, this is bubblegum fantasy.

    I first read this series when I was in junior high or high school, and re-read it a couple decades later. I'm pleased I came back to it! I've read and enjoyed a number of Brooks's Shanarra series, but they always strike me as ponderous and slow. I don't really approve of what I see as the commercialization of the series - the constant revisiting of the world seems to me like simply a way to sell more books, capitalizing on a single idea without bringing new concepts to the series.

The Magic Kingdom series is lighter, less serious, and more fun. It follows the trope of a secret world, Landover, connected to ours through misty, magical, natural places, but to travel between you risk becoming lost in the capricious mists of the fairies. Landover is supposedly the border of all worlds, but we only ever see it, and our own world. Landover is small, and its characters and conflicts are more constant than I remembered. The subsequent books in the series introduce only a handful of new characters, but re-hash conflicts that were introduced in the first book. But in a way, this helps the world feel familiar and developed. Landover is a fun, quick and lighthearted series, akin to Narnia or Lev Grossman's Magicians, but without the heavy morals of the former or the brooding grimness of the latter.

    Terry Brooks had a great idea: that someone could actually BUY a magic kingdom. I bought into this magic kingdom of Landover along with its new owner/king in volume 1, and enjoyed discovering the land and meeting its inhabitants. But by volume 2, Brooks' underestimation of his readers becomes seriously annoying. His prose becomes so repetitive one begins to feel like a dementia patient, constantly being reminded of who everyone and everything is.

    Like the first three books in the Magic Kingdom of Landover series, these two (combined here into a single omnibus edition) were fun to read. The dialog might be somewhat simplistic, the characters sometimes painfully oblivious, and some of the plot lines predictable, but overall these two books are very enjoyable. If I had a complaint it would be that Terry Brooks spent too much time, in my humble opinion, on including summarizies of previous books.

    I thought the story itself was really good. However, I felt as though he never really got more than surface deep. The story was simply told. I found it hard to really connect with the characters because of that.

    I am a major Terry Brooks fan. Everything he writes entertains me! Continuing the story of Ben holiday is a winner! After reading the first book, you long to know how his life is going in handover! This book continues the wonderful story!

    A good series. Occasionally, the conflicts seemed too easily/quickly resolved, which sort of bothered me, but I enjoyed Terry Brook's way of melding a modern mind with the world of Fantasy. Worth a read. A good series.

    Entertaining, but nothing too original here. I find the plots of each of the books in this series are pretty repetitive, although I do enjoy them.
