About the Author

Terry Brooks was a practising attorney for many years, but now writes full time. His first novel, THE SWORD OF SHANNARA, remained on the New York Times bestseller list for 5 months. Every one of the 23 novels that have followed has been an international bestseller.

Reviews

Brooks's "Magic Kingdom of Landover" books were first published between 1986 and 1995 as lighter fare than his epic "Shannara" series. While these titles may have recently languished on library shelves, interest may perk up as the series is currently under film option, and a new title is scheduled for 2009. In this third episode, originally released in 1988, Ben Holiday, nicely settled in as high Ruler of Landover, has his life upset when Court wizard Questor Thews determines to undo the magic that has Abernathy, the Court Scribe, in talking dog form. Borrowing the medal that has allowed Ben to move between his home in the United States and the magical kingdom of Landover, Questor promptly sends Abernathy--complete with medal--somewhere, unexpectedly exchanging him for a bottle that contains a nasty demon. Leaving Questor to deal with the black mischief caused by the demon in Landover, Ben has the wizard send him after Abernathy, who has fallen into the clutches of an exiled former king now living near Seattle. Dick Hill, known chiefly for his straightforward readings of thrillers, demonstrates his considerable ability to use varied voices, giving life to a large cast of human and imaginary characters. This lighter work is recommended for all collections that include fantasy fiction; it is likely to appeal to older Harry Potter fans, as well as those who prefer family friendly audio. [Brooks is the best-selling author of more than 25 books. Wizard at Large is also available in an abridged edition: 4 cassettes. 7 hrs. ISBN 978-1-58788-378-1. $53.25.--Ed.]--Janet Martin, Southern Pines P.L., NC Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
