The Magician King
by Lev Grossman

Welcome to the world of Fillory, where you will find Quentin Clearwater, a college student who finds this mysterious and magical land full of fairies, beasts, and even spirits. The Magician King is the sequel in Lev Grossman’s amazing series. Five pages after randomly picking this book up at Barnes and Nobles, I just knew I had to finish reading it. My first impression of this book left me with a surprising thought: this book is so much like Harry Potter…except its darker, richer in context, and riveting in its plot. Quentin’s age also surprised me. He is a college student! Immediately I could relate to the main characters. I would really recommend this book to anyone who remotely liked the Harry Potter series. It is a tale of magic that is tailored for more adult audiences. You won't regret it! "The Magicians is to Harry Potter as a shot of Irish whisky is to a glass of weak tea." -George R. R. Martin (Author of Game of Thrones)
