Lev Grossman on THE MAGICIANS, Part One

The MAGIC of Lev Grossman, Part One

By Zack Smith

Quentin did a magic trick. Nobody noticed.

Lev Grossman’s third novel, The Magicians has hit the bestseller list and earned rave reviews since its release in late August. It’s the tale of Quentin Coldwater, a young, smart fan of a series of fantasy novels about a realm called Fillory, which he longs to escape to.

But Quentin gets the next best thing when he finds himself accepted to Brakebeaks, a school of magic where he not only learns incredible secrets, but also finds the love and friendship he’s been looking for. After school, though, Quentin and friends find themselves without direction…until they gain the opportunity to access a mystic realm, with terrible secrets they may not escape.
