    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 : Penguin Books. The entire #1 New York Times bestselling trilogy that inspired SYFY's The Magicians, now available in a gorgeous boxed set, including The Magicians, The Magician King, and The Magician's Land.

Also, damn. Just some of the best magic I have read, ever.” —Maggie StiefvaterBrand: Penguin Publishing Group.

      “The Magician King is a rare achievement, a book that simultaneously criticizes and celebrates our deep desire for fantasy.” —The Boston Globe “Grossman has devised an enchanted milieu brimming with possibility, and his sly authorial voice gives it a literary life that positions The Magician King well above the standard fantasy fare.”. It’s been said before, and it’s worth repeating: If you’re a grownup Harry Potter fan, New York Times best-selling author (and Time book critic) Lev Grossman is the new J.K. Rowling. In the wake of his triumphant debut The Magicians, this cutting-edge sequel does not disappoint.. The Magician King drops its readers back off in Fillory, the enchanted land that exists just outside the.
