Att sälja ett kungadömme

Efter allmänt googlande, goodreads-tittande och surfande råkade jag ramla över lite böcker jag väldigt gärna skulle vilja läsa. En av dem är denna. Jag har gillat det jag läst av Terry Brooks så här långt och det här verkar vara grymt roligt. Påminner mig lite om Terry Pratchetts böcker som jag också läst på tok för lite av.

Landover was a genuine magic kingdom, complete with fairy folk and wizardry, just as the advertisement had promised. But after he purchased it for a million dollars, Ben Holiday discovered that there were a few details the ad had failed to mention. Such as the fact that the kingdom was falling into ruin. The barons refused to recognize a king and taxes hadn't been collected for years. The dragon, Strabo, was laying waste to the countryside, while the evil witch, Nightshade, was plotting to destroy no less than everything. And if that weren't enough for a prospective king to deal with, Ben soon learned that the Iron Mark, terrible lord of the demons, challenged all pretenders to the throne of Landover to a duel to the death - a duel no mere mortal could hope to win. But Ben Holiday had one human trait that even magic couldn't overcome. Ben Holiday was stubborn.
