Three years past, Matt had found a fateful scrap of parchment in the college library ... Cross the void of time and space! Seek and find your proper place! The runes were a spell - and they had whisked Matt away to a world where reciting verse worked magic. There Matt's talent for poetry had won him fame, power, and the heart of the woman he loved, the beautiful Queen Alisande ... Winning Alisande's heart had been easy; winning her hand was going to be a lot harder. For as she reluctantly explained - a queen has responsibilities, and marrying merely for love was out of the question. If only Matt had been a king, instead of a wizard ... That's when Matt blurted out his vow to get a kingdom. And in this world of magic, no such oath could be broken. Matt would actually have to seize somebody's crown - or die in the attempt! Matt became a man with a mission. The most likely conquest for this most unlikely conqueror was the neighboring land of Ibile. There the loathsome sorcerer-king Gordogrosso held the throne by use of his vile magics and armies of evil. Matt marched off alone against the tyrant, gathering some peculiar allies along the way: a dracogriff with a grudge against wizards, a well-spoken cyclops, and a chased damsel. Even Matt's old friends, Stegoman the dragon and the intrepid Sir Guy, joined the little band of adventurers. Gordogrosso didn't have any allies. He didn't need them. The tyrant-king roused fell legions against the intruders. He dispatched fiendish sorceries and perverted knights who fought eagerly in the name of wickedness. And against Gordogrosso's evil genius, Matt began to fear that he was going to need more than a few stout companions and some well-worded verse ... Christopher Stasheff returns to the enchanted world of Her Majesty's Wizard for romance, adventure - and a rollicking good time!

"Life should have been looking up in Latruria, the sundrenched land south of Merovence. The wicked old king was dead. His grandson, Boncorro, had ascended the throne, and the country rejoiced. Years of suffering had ended: taxes were down and the populace prospered. Folk could worship as they chose, for King Boncorro refused to submit his kingdom to the rule of Evil." "So what was amiss? Why was turmoil spreading beyond Latruria's boundaries? Could there possibly be any truth to the imponderable rumors that young King Boncorro also spurned the rule of Good?" "As Lord Wizard of Merovence, Matt Mantrell had learned the hard way that neutrality wasn't an option in this world of magic. So he set out in disguise to learn the truth about Latruria and its remarkable new ruler. But Matt's masquerade wasn't quite clever enough to keep Latruria's sinister Chancellor Rebozo from mobilizing his minions...." "Thus it was that "Minstrel" Matt sang his way south, dodging deadly enemies and music critics alike. He found himself teamed with a lovesick lad, menaced by a manticore, haunted by an ill-disposed ghost from Greece, and swept up in a veritable flood of young people, all fleeing their stultifying provincial homes for the "glamour" of the big city. But when their pilgrimage washed up on the shores of Boncorro's capital, harsh reality awaited them, not gold-paved streets. And an even harsher reality awaited Matt, for Boncorro's Lord Chancellor proposed a test of magic - and Matt would need a lot of help to pass!"--BOOK JACKET
