STAFF PICKS FOR NEW PALTZ
The Magicians series
by Lev Grossman
Fans of J.K. Rowling, C.S. Lewis, George R.R. Martin, and J.R.R. Tolkien: allow me to introduce you to Lev Grossman.
The Magicians introduces Quentin Coldwater, a brilliant and sulky teenage Brooklyn-ite whose admission to a Hudson Valley-based college for magic sets the scene for one of the best fantasy series I have read in years. The series continues with The Magician King and concludes with the incredibly satisfying Magician’s Land
Grossman, a talented, inventive, and outrageously clever writer, has crafted a fantasy world for the discerning adult reader in which a world of magical wonder is brilliantly fused with a sometimes harsh 21st century reality..
