This s17448129ummer, Viking is thrilled to release THE MAGICIAN’S LAND, the spectacular conclusion to Lev Grossman’s New York Times bestselling Magicians trilogy (On-sale: August 5, 2014; 978-0-670-01567-2; $27.95).

The trilogy opened with The Magicians which Junot Díaz called, “Stirring, complex, adventurous…[a] superb coming of age fantasy.” NPR called the sequel The Magician King “a spellbinding stereograph, a literary adventure novel that is also about privilege, power and the limits of being human.”   Legions of fans now await THE MAGICIAN’S LAND, a novel full of the subversive brilliance that has put Grossman at the forefront of modern fantasy, which will bring the Magicians trilogy to a shattering, triumphant conclusion.

Familiar faces return alongside new characters in THE MAGICIAN’S LAND. After being booted unceremoniously from Fillory, Quentin Coldwater returns to his alma mater, Brakebills Preparatory College of Magic, to stake out a new life as a teacher. But the past catches up to him, and before long, he and the brilliant student Plum must set out on a black market adventure, taking him to old haunts, like Antarctica, and to buried secrets and old friends he thought were lost forever. Quentin discovers a spell that could create a magical utopia, a new Fillory—but casting it would set in motion a chain of events that will bring Earth and Fillory crashing together. To save them, he must risk sacrificing everything.

 

THE MAGICIAN’S LAND is a tale of love and redemption—the story of a boy becoming a man, an apprentice becoming a master, and a broken land finally becoming whole.  Old readers will devour the rich and riveting final book, and the completed arc will welcome newcomers who can binge-read the series in full. You can learn more about Lev Grossman on his website www.levgrossman.com and follow him on Twitter @leverus.

About the Author:

(from his Website)

I was born in 1969, the son of two English professors, and grew up in Lexington, MA. I graduated from college with a degree in literature, then I spent three years in graduate school in comparative literature before moving to New York City and writing full-time.

My first novel, Warp, was published in 1997;Codex came out in 2004 and became an international bestseller. My third novel The Magicians was published in 2009 and was a New York Times bestseller. The New Yorker named it one of the best books of the year. The sequel, The Magician King,  came out in 2011 and was a Times bestseller as well; the third book, The Magician’s Land, will be out in August 2014. The Magicians books have now been published in twenty-three countries and garnered praise from George R.R. Martin, John Green, Audrey Niffenegger, Erin Morgenstern, Joe Hill, William Gibson, Gregory Maguire, Junot Diaz and many others.

I also write essays, journalism and criticism. Since 2002 I’ve been the book critic at Time magazine, and the New York Times described me as “among this country’s smartest and most reliable critics.” I’ve  written a dozen or so cover stories for Time, and my work has also appeared in the Believer, the Village Voice, the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Salon, Wired, Entertainment Weekly,  Lingua Franca and many other places. I’ve won several awards for journalism, including a Deadline award in 2006. I make regular appearances on campuses, including Harvard, Yale and Oxford, and as a commentator on NPR.

I live in Brooklyn with my wife, two daughters and one son, in a creaky old house.

  1. I read the Magicians but haven’t read the Magician King – I remember being immediately swept up by the Magicians and I loved how it touched upon a lot of elements of some of my most loved books in its own original and poignant way. Excited to hear that there is a third novel being released!
