The Magician’s Land by Lev Grossman


I’ve been quietly reading the Magicians series for the last year or so. Imagine if you are a book lover and and you’re too old to attend Hogwarts but you still want to live in a world of magic.  Enter Lev Grossman’s Magicians series.


I’ve been reluctant to read the last book because once you finish the book, then it’s over right? Duh. But when you love a series, you don’t want to leave your friends.  I know you can relate to that.  But as the saying goes, all good things…and I think I was finally ready to leave Brakebills and Fillory.  Here’s a blurb:

Along with Plum, a brilliant young undergraduate with a dark secret of her own, Quentin sets out on a crooked path through a magical demimonde of gray magic and desperate characters. But all roads lead back to Fillory, and his new life takes him to old haunts, like Antarctica, and to buried secrets and old friends he thought were lost forever. He uncovers the key to a sorcery masterwork, a spell that could create magical utopia, and a new Fillory–but casting it will set in motion a chain of events that will bring Earth and Fillory crashing together. To save them he will have to risk sacrificing everything.

I’m not going to say I cried at the end, but let’s just say that I was sad to see the story end and if you’re a grown up who loves magic this series is for you. Read it now.  Note, this series is NOT for children or teens. Maybe wait til your teen goes off to college: here’s some raunchy stuff in this series. But for grown folks?  All the YES.

And now it’s a tv series? Swoon.  Have you seen the show?
