“The Magicians is a darker, more adult take on the idea of a secret academy that trains would-be wizards. Lev Grossman explores the realms of magic, alternate realities, and wish fulfillment as visited by less-than-heroic characters. Raising the question of what would you do if you could do whatever you wanted, The Magicians is thrilling and deliciously disturbing.”
— Lisa Wright, Oblong Books And Music,LLC., Millerton, NY

Description


Quentin Coldwater is brilliant but miserable. After he graduates from college, he and his friends make a stunning discovery: Fillory--the land of the fantasy novels they read as children--is real and much darker and more dangerous than they could have imagined.
