    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.

    Overall

    As a fan of both Harry Potter and the Chronicles of Narnia, I thought I would enjoy this much more than I did. I can't bring myself to finish it. There is a fine line between being inspired by a concept and ripping it off and this story crosses it. I may have enjoyed this more if it was a different narrator...Mark Brahmall definitely did not add anything to the telling of the story...instead it just put me to sleep.

    Isaac Vainio is a Libriomancer, a member of the secret organization founded five centuries ago by Johannes Gutenberg. Libriomancers are gifted with the ability to magically reach into books and draw forth objects. When Isaac is attacked by vampires that leaked from the pages of books into our world, he barely manages to escape. To his horror he discovers that vampires have been attacking other magic-users as well, and Gutenberg has been kidnapped.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend the book, but not the audiobook. The narration is just bad, particularly the voicing of the female characters.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of David DeVries?

    Luke Daniels or James Marsters.
