Wizard at Large
by Terry Brooks
Book 3 in the Magic Kingdom of Landover series (1988)
Publisher: Del Rey
Ben Holiday, the High Lord of Landover, is back in his rightful place. The evil wizard, Meeks, has finally been dealt with and all seems at peace. But even in a Magic Kingdom, the peace never lasts long.
It all began when the half-able wizard Questor Thews announced that finally he could restore the Court Scribe Abernathy to human form. All went well until the wizard breahed the magic dust of his spell and suddenly sneezed. Then, where Abernathy had stood, there was only a bottle containing a particularly evil imp, who soon escapes.
