From Barnes & NobleA Barnes & Noble Best Book of 2014
The first two books in Lev Grossman’s trilogy followed gifted magician Quentin Coldwater’s transformation from callow youth to fantasy-world king to exiled monarch. His journey was defined by chronic dissatisfaction, overlaid on a life path so magical his ennui borders on cognitive dissonance. But in this pitch-perfect wrap-up to perhaps the best, most democratic fantasy series of its generation, Coldwater finally grows up. The way Grossman entwines hairline plot twists, science-based magic, and the coming of age of a prickly-by-nature narrator is astonishing. This trilogy is for fans of Harry Potter, fans of Narnia, fans of closely observed literary portraiture, and fans of magic, both the real and the narrative kind.
