A year had passed since Ben Holiday bought the Magic Kingdom from the wizard Meeks, who had set a series of pitfalls against him. Ben survived, by the aid of three loyal friends: Questor Thews, and ill-trained wizard; Abernathy, a talking dog, the Court Scribe; and the lovely Willow, who sometimes had to be a tree. Bu ben had been troubled by dreams of disaster to his former partner, Miles Bennett. Yet when he returned to Earth, Ben found Miles doing splendidly. Unknown to Ben, the dreams had been a trap by Meeks, who had returned to the Magic Kingdom as a tiny insect hidden in Ben's clothing. That first night back in Landover, Ben awoke to see Meeks gloating over him. claiming to have the medallion that could summon the mysterious knight-protector, the Paladin, and that he had cast a spell to witch appearances with Ben. Ben found himself outcast, no longer recognized by any friend, though all his powerful enemies seemed to know him. Without the medallion, he couldn't seek the help of the Paladin against Meeks. There was only the prism cat--whatever that might be! And where was Willow--and the mysterious black unicorn she'd set out to find?… (mer)

I really liked this book,and thought it was as good if not better than Magic Kingdom For Sale-Sold.
More story-lines going on at the same time and just a touch of intrigue. ( )

'Magic Kingdom for Sale - Sold!' ended with Ben Holiday in possession of his magic powers of kingliness and how he defeated/banished/subdued the main antagonists towards his rule. There was a lot about the kingdom left unsaid, particularly concerning the people that sold it to him in the first place.

On finishing 'The Black Unicorn', most things were still left unsaid.

I pray you, expand the cover image as Darrell K. Sweet has surpassed himself with this one. Our vacant-eyed love interest, Willow, leads the titular unicorn stage left; the emerald and ebony hues and turbulent sky are classically offset by a god-damned rainbow.

The novel starts with Ben Holiday's magic warm castle Sterling Silver fully staffed and his modernization plans purring through committees. There are still long strides to make before the kingdom functions again and all sides (really, only two count and are treated with any length at all - the River Master's people and the feudal landlords) still mistrust each other. Holiday, Questor, and Willow have strange dreams; Holiday dreams about the friend he left behind, Questor about the lost books of magic and Willow about the black unicorn and a harness that will capture it. The black unicorn is a creature whose appearance has always led to disaster. Each dreamer is driven to ignore the better advice of their friends and pursue the truths behind their dreams. Rumors of the black unicorn lead to all in the land (read:feudal landlords and the River Master) desiring the creature for themselves.

The characters go through the book much as they did the last one, Holiday goes through some tribulations, but finally reaches the step I thought he'd taken at the end of the last one. The one new character, Dirk, is a fancy kind of cat that is as aloof and clever as you want from a cat in a fantasy book. A little too clever, his hints might have been over Holiday's head, but they reveal everything far too soon in the novel for the reader. I read this book, and the next, because I told myself I would, but I didn't enjoy it much or have any appreciation for Brooks' style or substance until the very end of the book where there is a lovely bit about unicorns.

Meeks tries to take over Landover again and it is shown that the Books of Magic are actually captured unicorns, whose magic is siphoned and used. It is like Brooks has taken the whole WORLD of Shannara and tried to push it into one small fairy land. It was interesting, but rather flat. ( )

"How do you know she is a unicorn?" Molly demanded. "And why were you afraid to let her touch you? I saw you. You were afraid of her."
"I doubt that I will feel like talking for very long," the cat replied without rancor. "I would not waste time in foolishness if I were you. As to your first question, no cat out of its first fur can ever be deceived by appearances. Unlike human beings, who enjoy them. As for your second question--" Here he faltered, and suddenly became very interested in washing; nor would he speak until he had licked himself fluffy and then licked himself smooth again. Even then he would not look at Molly, but examined his claws.
"If she had touched me," he said very softly, "I would have been hers and not my own, not ever again."

The black unicorn stepped from the morning mists, almost as if born of them, and stared out over the kingdom of Landover.
