The New York Times bestselling novel about a young man practicing magic in the real world Like everyone else, precocious high school senior Quentin Coldwater assumes that magic isn`t real, until he finds himself admitted to a very secretive and exclusive college of magic in upstate New York. There he indulges in joys of college ”friendship, love, sex, and booze” and receives a rigorous education in modern sorcery. But magic doesn`t bring the happiness and adventure Quentin thought it would. After graduation, he and his friends stumble upon a secret that sets them on a remarkable journey that may just fulfill Quentin`s yearning. But their journey turns out to be darker and more dangerous than they`d imagined. Psychologically piercing and dazzlingly inventive, The Magicians, the prequel to the New York Times bestselling book The Magician King and the #1 bestseller The Magician`s Land, is an enthralling coming-of-age tale about magic practiced in the real world where good and evil aren`t black and white and power comes at a terrible price.
