Magic Kingdom (Terry Brooks)

The Magic Kingdom series is a children's quintet by Terry Brooks following the adventures of Ben Holiday, a trial lawyer[?] who goes into a depression after the death of his wife and unborn child. He finds that he is no longer motivated by justice and feels that the legal system is profoundly flawed; this leads him to respond to a fantastic advertisement for a "Magic Kingdom" which he purchases, suspecting some deception behind it; he is shocked to find that the kingdom is real and that is in a state of collapse. Ben Holiday takes the job of king and finds himself having to meet many challenges.
