    Quentin Coldwater is brilliant but miserable. A senior in high school, he's still secretly preoccupied with a series of fantasy novels he read as a child, set in a magical land called Fillory. Imagine his surprise when he finds himself unexpectedly admitted to a very secret, very exclusive college of magic in upstate New York, where he receives a thorough and rigorous education in the craft of modern sorcery.

    Story

    I was really disappointed in this book by Lev Grossman, especially after all the rave reviews in the media. I found the story lacking in depth, the characters uncompelling and the plot weak. If you are someone who loves the worlds created in the Harry Potter or A Song of Ice and Fire series, look elsewhere. This book boils down to whiny, entitled teenagers lazing about and oh, they do magic, by the way. There's no central force driving the story along and it was only due to my own stubbornness that I even finished it. Ugh, and plus I'd already downloaded the follow-up The Magician King and I'm trying to force my way through that one too.

    It is not long before the survivors, outlaws, renegades, and carrion eaters start to gather, picking over the bones of the dead and fighting for the spoils of the soon-to-be dead. Now in the Seven Kingdoms, as the human crows assemble over a banquet of ashes, daring new plots and dangerous new alliances are formed, while surprising faces, some familiar, others only just appearing, are seen emerging from an ominous twilight of past struggles and chaos to take up the challenges ahead.

    Nothing new to add that hasn't already been written by other reviewers. The switch in narrator was jarring and I did not enjoy this performance. Thankfully Roy Dotrice is back for the fifth installment.
