Reviews for The Magician King: (Book 2)

The best fantasy trilogy of the decade. -- Charles Stross Lev Grossman has conjured a rare creature: a trilogy that simply gets better and better as it goes along... Literary perfection. -- Erin Morgenstern * author of The Night Circus * Lev Grossman's novel is full of magic ... stupendous urban fantasy ... The Magician King is Harry Potter for grown-ups who have learned to hate Harry Potter * The Guardian * The most entertaining and compelling fantasy I've read in a long time. * The Times * A story about extraordinary deeds, heroism, magic and love -- all the stuff that makes escapism go. It's a fantastic trick that makes this into a book that entertains and disturbs at the same time * Boing Boing *
