Synopsis

Quentin Coldwater is brilliant but miserable. Obsessed with the fantasy novels he read as a child, he finds the real world just doesn't compare.

Then one day it happens: he stumbles unexpectedly into a hidden world and is invited to join a very exclusive college, where he will learn the secrets of magic.

But something is still missing.

And now Quentin will do anything to find what he's always been looking for.

Praise for The Magicians Trilogy

'The best fantasy trilogy of the decade.' Charles Stross

'The most entertaining and compelling fantasy I've read in a long time.' The Times

'Lev Grossman has conjured a rare creature: a trilogy that simply gets better and better as it goes along... Literary perfection.' Erin Morgenstern

'May just be the most subversive, gripping, and enchanting fantasy novel I've read this century.' Cory Doctorow

'Dark and dangerous and full of twists. Hogwarts was never like this.' George R. R. Martin

'Sad, hilarious, beautiful, and essential to anyone who cares about modern fantasy.' Joe Hill

'A darkly cunning story about the power of imagination itself.' The New Yorker

'The Magicians ought to be required reading... a terrific, at times almost painfully perceptive novel of the fantastic.' Kelly Link

'Brilliantly explores the hidden underbelly of fantasy and easy magic, taking what's simple on the surface and turning it over to show us the complicated writhing mess beneath.' Naomi Novik
