The Magic Kingdom is undeniably one of the best performing series by author Terry Brooks. It is made up of six fantasy novels, which follows the adventures of one Ben Holiday, a former trial lawyer as well as a collection of enemies and friends that he comes across after purchasing a magical kingdom. The Magic of Landover series has been set in a fictional world, Landover, which is densely populated by numerous fairy and magical creatures. The land takes its name from the amusing reference to the critically acclaimed novel, the Wizard of Oz. The Landover is an extremely small world, which is surrounded on both sides by fairy mist, which in turn connect Landover to different worlds.
Gnomes, humans, kobolds and different types of fantasy creatures mainly populate Landover. All these fantasy creatures speak the same language, Landoverian. The protagonist, Ben Holiday, can speak Landoverian through magical means. Despite the fact that their rulers are answerable to the king, they are still granted autonomy. Paladin, a magical knight who happens to be a projection to its rulers, mainly protects Landover. In case, the magical land lacks a magical ruler, paladin disappears, and the Landover falls victim to the Tarnish, a physical decay that spreads slowly from the castle of the king.
