- Full Description
The Magicians Alice’s Story is an all new chapter set in the world of The Magicians trilogy of novels by New York Times bestselling author Lev Grossman that retells the events of the first novel through fan-favorite character Alice Quinn. And for me, unfamiliar with the series, I found it an outstanding stand-alone graphic novel. It features exceptionally good characterization and strong artwork. -Bud. Alice Quinn is manifestly brilliant, and she’s always known that magic is real. During her years at Brakebills College for Magical Pedagogy, she rises to the top of her class, falls in love with Quentin Coldwater, and witnesses a horrifically magical creature invade their dimension.
It’s soon after graduation when Alice, Quentin, and their friends set their sights on the idyllic setting of Fillory—a place thought to only live in the pages of their favorite children’s books—where magic flows like rivers . . . But in this magical realm nothing is what it seems and something darker lies behind the spellbinding facade. It is in the darkness that Alice will discover her true calling and her life, and those of her friends, are forever changed.
This is a bit of a Harry Potter-style story, but this time we have a young female protagonist who, like Harry, is brilliant but lacks confidence in herself. Her brother went off to "magic school" and disappeared eight years ago. Presumed dead, perhaps he isn't after all. Did he get swept into another dimension? And this magic business, it can easily kill you if you don't respect the norms.
Acclaimed novelist Lev Grossman joins New York Times bestselling writer Lilah Sturges (Jack of Fables), and breakout artist Pius Bak for a new chapter in the smash hit trilogy The Magicians. Occasional adult themes, minor nudity.
