The Magicians – Lev Grossman

Young college-aged students from New York are selected to attend a magical academy of learning. After graduation, they find themselves in a post-grad rut and somewhat jaded. This all changes when a friend from school discovers a way into a land that was once thought to be fiction, based on the childhood storybooks of their youth. This book is a good read for people who enjoyed the Harry Potter series, as well as the Chronicles of Narnia, but with more edge. The characters are flawed, there is a darker, gritty, more cynical feel to the story, and the characters themselves are put into adult situations, none of which you would find in a kid-friendly story like Harry Potter and Narnia. Recommended for 17+ readers. (submitted by EM)
