Publisher's Summary

It all began when the half-able wizard Questor Thews announced that, finally, he could restore the Court Scribe Abernathy to human form. It was his spell that had turned Abernathy into a Wheaten Terrier - though he was still able to talk.

All went well, until the wizard breathed the magic dust of his spell and suddenly sneezed. Then, where Abernathy had stood, there was only a bottle containing a particularly evil imp. It had been in the collection of Michel Ard Rhi, former King of Landover, now exiled to Earth. Abernathy must now be a part of that collection!

High Lord Ben Holiday set forth for Earth, taking his green but beautiful love, Willow, with him. Unfortunately, they were long in returning. And without the soil of Landover in which to root as a tree at times, Willow could not long survive.

That left it up to Questor Thews to save them. Grimly he set out to seek help, knowing himself to be incompetent. And to make things worse, the imp had escaped and sought the help of the evil witch Nightshade, now back from exile in Faerie. Questor's only idea seemed impossible, but....

Enticing

I am a fan of this series, I found this book enjoyable to listen to on way to work. It is a great stress reducer. Dragons, Wizards, perils, dangerous enemies, what more to ask for.

Yet another success.

IT was alittle less than a year since Ben Holiday and is friends thwarted the plans of the treacherous wizard Meeks and, in so doing, discovered the secret of the mysterious black Unicorn. Now, Questor Thews, the ill-trained court wizard, announces that he has finally discovered a spel that will return Abernathy, the court scribe, to his human form after more than twenty years of being a talking dog. There is a catch, however. Questor needs an object to serve as a catalyst for the magic, something to separate the man from the dog in Abernathy. Unfortunately the only object close at hand that can serve that purpose is the medallion of the kings of Landover. Despite the risks, Ben reluctantly agrees to lend the medallion to the cause. All goes well until Questor inadvertently breathes the magic dust of his spell and sneezs, causing Abernathy to vanish, taking the medalion with it. Things become more complicated when a mysterious bottle appears in the spotwhere Abernathy once stood. It's quickly discovered that the bottle is in fact the prison of an evil genie-like demon who corrupts those it serves even while granting their wishes. The bottle, it's discovered, is the property of Michel Ard Ri, the exiled prince of landover who departed with the wizard Meeks. Ben realizes that Abernathy must hve been sent to Earthh and, worse, to wherever Michel now lives. The situation becomes more urgent when the bottle disappears. Ben decides to depart for Earth with the aid of Questor in the hope of recovering Abernathy and the medallion. Can he find Abernathy before Michel Ard Rhi does? Can Abernathy elude his old enemy long enough for Ben to find him? And will they find the Darkling before it falls into truly evil hands?
Once again I find little fault with Dick Hill's narration. It's easy to keep track of hat character is speaking and each has their own personality. Hill even does justice to emotional scenes. This was definitely worh my time.

It starts with a sneeze.

Before writing a Landover review I almost always want to say “This one is favorite “. The first four are excellent and book five is good.
This story focuses on two plot lines. Abernathy gets transported from Landover to our world when Questor screws up a spell that was supposed to cure him. Also he’s got Ben’s medallion and ends up in the mansion of his worst enemy. Michal Ard Rhys.
Second we have a newly returned Darkling (evil genie) on the loose in Landover. First it ends up in the hands of the G’home gnomes. As Ben and company set forward to try to fix things, things begin to play out as they only do in this series. AND STRABO IN A COURTROOM. 😂😂😂

It's okay

I can never listen through this book completely. I think it could have been better. It doesn't compare to the first book. I like this reader. It's funny how he clears his throat for the wizard. It's the only book like that... I Love Wizard at Large the best.
