Quentin Coldwater is brilliant but miserable. A high school math genius, he’s secretly fascinated with a series of children’s fantasy novels set in a magical land called Fillory, and real life is disappointing by comparison. When Quentin is unexpectedly admitted to an elite, secret college of magic, it looks like his wildest dreams have come true. But his newfound powers lead him down a rabbit hole of hedonism and disillusionment, and ultimately to the dark secret behind the story of Fillory. The land of his childhood fantasies turns out to be much darker and more dangerous than he ever could have imagined. . . .
The prequel to the New York Times bestselling book The Magician King and the #1 bestseller The Magician's Land, The Magicians is one of the most daring and inventive works of literary fantasy in years. No one who has escaped into the worlds of Narnia and Harry Potter should miss this breathtaking return to the landscape of the imagination.

Based upon Lev Grossman’s best-selling books, The Magicians stars Jason Ralph as Quentin Coldwater, a gifted grad student chosen to attend Brakebills University in upstate New York. He and his friends soon discover that the magical fantasy world they read about as children is all too real – and poses grave danger to humanity.
Lev Grossman’s The Magicians trilogy is an international sensation, published and widely praised in more than twenty countries.

Additionally, The Magicians was one of the recipients of the 2010 Alex Awards.
