Reviews for The Magicians: (Book 1)

The best fantasy trilogy of the decade. -- Charles Stross Stirring, complex, adventurous . . . Grossman delivers superb coming of age fantasy. A darkly cunning story about the power of imagination itself. * The New Yorker * Dark and dangerous and full of twists. Hogwart's was never like this. The Magicians ought to be required reading... a terrific, at times almost painfully perceptive novel of the fantastic.
