Magician's Land

A Novel

If the Narnia books were like catnip for a certain kind of kid, these books are like crack for a certain kind of adult." The New York Times
Critics, readers, and fellow writers have all hailed the Magicians trilogy by No.1 New York Times bestselling author Lev Grossman as one of the greatest achievements in modern fantasy.

Filled with riveting battle scenes as well as intriguing new characters and the return of beloved favorites, The Magician's Lan d brings Grossman's epic tale to its magnificent conclusion.
Rezension
Praise for The Magician's Land
"Richly imagined and continually surprising. . . . The strongest book in Grossman's series. It not only offers a satisfying conclusion to Quentin Coldwater's quests, earthly and otherwise, but also considers complex questions about identity and selfhood as profound as they are entertaining. . . . The Magician's Land , more than any other book in the trilogy, wrestles with the question of humanity. . . . This is a gifted writer, and his gifts are at their apex in The Magician's Land ."
-Edan Lepucki, The New York Times Book Review
"The strength of the trilogy lies . . . in the characters, whose inner lives and frailties Grossman renders with care and empathy. . . . Quentin['s] . . . magical journey is deeply human."
-The New Yorker
"[A] wonderful trilogy. . . . If the Narnia books were like catnip for a certain kind of kid, these books are like crack for a certain kind of adult. . . . Brakebills graduates can have a hard time adjusting to life outside, though some distract themselves by lazily meddling in world affairs (e.g., the election of 2000). Readers of Mr. Grossman's mesmerizing trilogy might experience the same kind of withdrawal upon finishing The Magician's Land . Short of wishing that a fourth book could suddenly appear by magic, there's not much we can do about it."
-Sarah Lyall, The New York Times
"Grossman makes it clear in the deepening complexity and widening scope of each volume that he understands the pleasures and perils of stories and believing in them. . . . The Magician's Land triumphantly answers the essential questions at the heart of the series, about whether magic belongs to childhood alone, whether reality trumps fantasy, even whether we have the power to shape our own lives in an indifferent universe."
-Gwenda Bond, The Los Angeles Times
"A wholly satisfying and stirring conclusion to this weird and wonderful tale. . . . Relentlessly subversive and inventive. . . . Grossman can . . . write like a magician. . . . [He] reminds us that good writing can beguile the senses, imagination and intellect. The door at the back of the book is still there, and we can go back to those magical lands, older and wiser, eager for the re-enchantment."
-Keith Donohue, The Washington Post
"A huge part of the pleasure of this trilogy in general and this volume in particular is that, even as we consume the story just to find out what happens to Quentin, we know that we are collaborating in our own versions of its creation, its animation. The reader gets to be a magician, too."
-Nancy Klingener, The Miami Herald
"[A] stirring finale to Grossman's acclaimed trilogy."
- People
" The Magician's Land . . . does all the things you want in a third book: winding up everyone's stories, tying up the loose ends -- and giving you a bit more than you bargained for. . . . Starting very early in Magician's Land , Grossman kicks off a series of escalating magical battles, each more fantastic, taut, and brutal than the last, which comes to a head in the final chapters with a world-shattering Götterdämmerung scene that stands with great war at the climax of The Return of the King . At the same time, Grossman never loses sight of the idea of magic as unknowable and unsystematized, a thread of Borgesian Big Weird that culminates in a beautiful tribute to Borges himself. It's this welding together of adventure-fiction plotstuff and introspective, moody characterization that makes this book, and the trilogy it concludes, so worthy of your reading time, and your re-reading time.
-Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing
"The world of Grossman's 'Magicians' series is arrestingly original, joyful and messy. It's so vividly rendered that it's almost disappointing to remember that it doesn't, after all, exist. The overall effect is - well, there's really only one word for it: It's magical."
- Chicago Tribune
"[A] satisfying ending to the series. . . . Saying goodbye to Quentin is bitters
