The Magician's Land (Hardcover)

$27.95
ISBN-13: 9780670015672
Availability: Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now
Published: Viking Adult, 7/2014

Speculative Fiction

From its magical opening scene in a largely mundane New Jersey bookstore, to its conclusion leaving readers with appropriate-to-the-story if not necessarily happy “good-byes” to Quentin Coldwater, flawed magician, and his compatriots, The Magician’s Land fulfils Lev’s unspoken contract with his readers to both honor and build on the classic tales of adventures at its foundation. After the losses of The Magician King, Quentin gradually develops more self-awareness and grace, while undertaking fabulous magical adventures, of course! Strongly recommended.
