The entire #1 New York Times bestselling Magicians trilogy, including The Magicians, The Magician King, and The Magician's Land, now available in one ebook bundle
Quentin Coldwater is brilliant but miserable. A high school math genius, he’s secretly fascinated with a series of children’s fantasy novels set in a magical land called Fillory, and real life is disappointing by comparison. When Quentin is unexpectedly admitted to an elite, secret college of magic, it looks like his wildest dreams may have come true. But his newfound powers lead him down a rabbit hole of hedonism and disillusionment, and ultimately to the dark secret behind the story of Fillory. The land of his childhood fantasies turns out to be much darker and more dangerous than he ever could have imagined . . .
The Magicians is one of the most daring and inventive works of literary fantasy in years. No one who has escaped into the worlds of Narnia and Harry Potter should miss this breathtaking return to the landscape of the imagination.
The Magician King
Quentin Coldwater should be happy. He escaped a miserable Brooklyn childhood, matriculated at a secret college for magic, and graduated to discover that Fillory—a fictional utopia—was actually real. But even as a Fillorian king, Quentin finds little peace. His old restlessness returns, and he longs for the thrills a heroic quest can bring.
Accompanied by his oldest friend, Julia, Quentin sets off—only to somehow wind up back in the real-world and not in Fillory, as they’d hoped. As the pair struggle to find their way back to their lost kingdom, Quentin is forced to rely on Julia’s illicitly learned sorcery as they face a sinister threat in a world very far from the beloved fantasy novels of their youth.
The Magician's Land
Quentin Coldwater has lost everything. He has been cast out of Fillory, the secret magical world of his childhood dreams that he once ruled. With nothing left to lose he returns to where his story began, the Brakebills Preparatory College of Magic. But he can’t hide from his past, and it’s not long before it comes looking for him. Meanwhile, the magical barriers that keep Fillory safe are failing, and barbarians from the north have invaded. Eliot and Janet, the rulers of Fillory, embark on a final quest to save their beloved world, only to discover a situation far more complex—and far more dire—than anyone had envisioned.
Along with Plum, a brilliant young magician with a dark secret of her own, Quentin sets out on a crooked path through a magical demimonde of gray magic and desperate characters. His new life takes him back to old haunts, like Antarctica and the Neitherlands, and old friends he thought were lost forever. The Magician’s Land is an intricate and fantastical thriller, and an epic of love and redemption that brings the Magicians trilogy to a magnificent conclusion, confirming it as one of the great achievements in modern fantasy.
Customer ReviewsSee All
I could write a whole book on how much I loved this series, but I will shorten it considerably. Wonderful characters that are very well developed. I loved how the main character isn't above the rest and isn't the best at everything, he's only great, not excellent. I loved how they all had deep faults. The vocabulary used in this is amazing, and because of the setting and intelligence of the characters, it becomes even better. I was only 13 when I read this series, and it changed my whole outlook on life and increased my vocabulary greatly. It can become very fast paced, almost too much, but you never get bored. You will stay interested the whole time and be cringing wanting to know what happens next. The ending is amazing and the whole series is amazing. Beautifully written, planned, and executed. Maybe my favorite series of all time. Great job, Lev.
It was everything I’d hoped
I’ve loved magic for a long time, since I was a very young child, this book is it exactly how I imagined magic to be and I loved the realism of it. Don’t go into it thinking it’s “adult Harry Potter and/or Narnia” because I’ve noticed a lot of people get disappointed thinking that. The main character isn’t meant to be heroic or moral or even relatable, because from my understanding that’s not what a book is. He’s not nearly as bad as SOME people are saying, in fact, his character arc is just another reason I’d recommend this trilogy. In conclusion, great story, great magic system, fantastic lore, great trilogy.
This book is one of the worst I have ever read, the author frequently leaps from one idea to another, the main character is so different that you can’t relate to him at all and he morally is a piece of garbage, I can’t read a book where the main character has no moral properties, does drugs, sleeps with other women even when he’s dating and etc.
