""The Magician King" is a rare achievement, a book that simultaneously criticizes and celebrates our deep desire for fantasy."--"The Boston Globe"

"A spellbinding stereograph, a literary adventure novel that is also about a privilege, power and the limits of being human. "The Magician King" is a triumphant sequel."---NPR.org

"Grossman is brilliant at creating brainy, distinct, flawed, complex characters, and nearly as good at running them through narrative gauntlets that inventively tweak the stories that generations have grown up on."--"The Portland Oregonian"

"Now that Harry Potter is through in books and films, grown-up fans of the boy wizard might want to give this nimble fantasy series a try."--"New York Post"

""The Magician King", the immensely entertaining new novel by Lev Grossman, manages to be both deep and deeply enjoyable."--"The Chicago Sun-Times"

"Fans of "The Magicians" will find this sequel a feast and will be delighted that a jaw-dropping denouement surely promises a third volume to come."--"Booklist"

"Fabulous fantasy spiked with bitter adult wisdom-not to be missed."--"Kirkus Reviews" (Starred Review)

"Lev Grossman''s "The Magician King" is a fresh take on the fantasy- quest novel-dark, austere, featuring characters with considerable psychological complexity, a collection of idiosyncratic talking animals (a sloth who knows the path to the underworld, a dragon in the Grand Canal), and splendid set pieces in Venice, Provence, Cornwall and Brooklyn."--"The Daily Beast"

""The Magician King"is Grossman''s sequel to "The Magicians", and while it is every bit as delightful and smart as the first one, it''s a very different kind of book... "The Magician King"is at once an existential exercise that angrily shakes escapism by its shoulders and demands that life have a purpose, and a story about extraordinary deeds, heroism, magic and love-all the stuff that makes escapism go. It''s a fantastic trick that makes this into a book that entertains and disturbs at the same time."--"Boing Boing"

"Grossman has devised an enchanted milieu brimming with possibility, and his sly authorial voice gives it a literary lift that positions "The Magician King" well above the standard fantasy fare."--"The New Yorker"

Reseña del editor:

Return to Fillory in the riveting sequel to the New York Times bestseller and literary phenomenon, The Magicians

Quentin Coldwater should be happy. He escaped a miserable Brooklyn childhood, matriculated at a secret college for magic, and graduated to discover that Fillory--a fictional utopia--was actually real. But even as a Fillorian king, Quentin finds little peace. His old restlessness returns, and he longs for the thrills a heroic quest can bring.
Accompanied by his oldest friend, Julia, Quentin sets off--only to somehow wind up back in the real world and not in Fillory, as they'd hoped. As the pair struggle to find their way back to their lost kingdom, Quentin is forced to rely on Julia's illicitly-learned sorcery as they face a sinister threat in a world very far from the beloved fantasy novels of their youth.
