Book Review - The Magician King

The Magician KingThe Magician King by Lev Grossman

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Grossman goes even darker in this second book of the series. King Quentin finds he's bored in the magical land of Fillory so he seeks a quest. He gets more than he bargained for as he and his friends must prevent the end of magic (which may also be the end of Fillory).

There are two stories told here. One is the current quest and the other is the story of Julia, the damaged Queen. Her story shows how she learned magic outside of the Brakebills school and it's not a pretty story in a lot of places.

I liked this one and finished it one lazy Saturday but it was not as engrossing as the first book.
