#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER†
The stunning conclusion to the bestselling Magicians trilogy

Quentin Coldwater has been cast out of Fillory, the secret magical land of his childhood dreams. With nothing left to lose he returns to where his story began, the Brakebills Preparatory College of Magic. But he canít hide from his past, and itís not long before it comes looking for him.

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, a new Filloryóbut 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.

The Magicianís Land†is an intricate thriller, a fantastical epic, 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. Itís the story of a boy becoming a man, an apprentice becoming a master, and a broken land finally becoming whole.

A decent end to the series. Quentin still wasn't the most interesting character. Read full review

User Review  - Heather - Goodreads

I am on page 78 and I just can't get into it. So far I only care about Quentin. I don't really care about Fillory unless Quentin is there. Is it worth plodding through? Or not? Read full review
