In The Magician’s Land, the stunning conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Magicians trilogy—on-sale from Viking on August 5—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 can’t hide from his past, and it’s not long before it comes looking for him.
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 Fillory—but 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.
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. It’s the story of a boy becoming a man, an apprentice becoming a
master, and a broken land finally becoming whole.
I was born in 1969 and grew up in Lexington, MA. My parents were both
English professors, so naturally I read a lot. I read a lot in college
too, and read even more in graduate school, then I moved to New York
City and started writing full time.
My first novel, Warp, was published in 1997. My second, Codex, came out in 2004 and became an international bestseller. The Magicians was published in 2009 and was a New York Times bestseller and one of the New Yorker‘s best books of the year. The sequel, The Magician King, came out in 2011 and was a Times bestseller as well. The third and (almost certainly) last Magicians book, The Magician’s Land, will
be out in August 2014. The Magicians books have now been published in
twenty-three countries and have garnered praise from George R.R. Martin,
John Green, Audrey Niffenegger, Erin Morgenstern, Joe Hill, William
Gibson, Gregory Maguire, Junot Diaz and many others.
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.
