The last (?) of Lev Grossman’s excellent Magician‘s trilogy comes out next year. The main protagonist of the novels is Quentin Coldwater. Quentin starts the series as a new pupil of Brakebills, a school for magicians, and later becomes a ruler of Fillory, a magical kingdom more than vaguely reminiscent of Narnia. If you thought Harry Potter had killed the whole school of wizardry trope, you’d be wrong and these novels prove it. Can’t wait.

“Who the Hell is the Captain anyway?”—Roy Mathur
“He is not an adventurer, rock star and supervillain with a penchant for G&Ts, C7H10N4O2 and insanely loud music. His exploits do not usually involve arriving just in time to save the multiverse (or thoroughly bugger it up) in a Vimana shaped like a wardrobe. And, contrary to the wanted posters, he is certainly not a multi-tentacled cyborg from the 27th dimension.”—Anonymous
“Finally an honest review…great!”—Shayne T. Wright
