Princess Mistaya's frustrated father Ben Holiday is determined that his precocious daughter learn some responsibility, and he declares her grounded until she successfully refurbishes the long-forsaken royal library. Mortified by the prospect of salvaging a king's ransom in moldy books--and horrified by word that repulsive local nobleman Lord Laphroig seeks to marry her--Mistaya decides that the only way to run her own life is to run away from home ... a decision that draws Landover's intrepid princess to the last place she expected to go, and into the thick of a mystery that will put her mettle to the test--and might bring the kingdom to its knees.

Hopefully, after he finishes up Shannara, he will come back to Landover for at least one more book.

The book held my interest throughout with some interesting characters and situations. Only criticism I have is that it was somewhat lacking in action. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

My favourite of the series. Perhaps the long break from the series reinvigorated Mr. Brooks' imagination for it.
The story moved at a good pace, and with the focus on Ben Holiday's daughter, rather than on the usual characters, it made the story and writing seem fresh.

The Landover novels all have a easier pace and more lighthearted feel to them in comparison to the Shannara series, which usually has made me enjoy them less, but not in this case. I enjoyed reading this book immensely.
