"Quentin Coldwater has been cast out of Fillory, the secret magical land of his childhood dreams. With nothing left to lose he returns to where his story began, the Brakebills Preparatory College of Magic. But he can't hide from his past, and it's not long before it comes looking for him. Along with Plum, a brilliant young undergraduate with a dark secret of her own, Quentin sets out on a crooked path through a magical demimonde of gray magic and desperate characters. But all roads lead back to Fillory, and his new life takes him to old haunts, like Antarctica, and to buried secrets and old friends he thought were lost forever. He uncovers the key to a sorcery masterwork, a spell that could create magical utopia, a new Fillory--but casting it will set in motion a chain of events that will bring Earth and Fillory crashing together. To save them he will have to risk sacrificing everything"--… (mere)

Just glad is finally over.... Kidding, but seriously, i bet the story would much more exciting if it was from the point of view of someone external to the physical kids, really liked the parts in Plum's POV. Also, the ending pissed me off a little. ( )

A wonderful ending to this trilogy. It didn't have have the emotional impact on me that the previous book did, but this felt like a fitting end to the story. I loved revisiting so many characters and seeing Quentin grow and mature. I dragged out reading the end solely due to missing Grossman's world when I finished. ( )

A good ending to the series. ( )

Better than Books #1 & #2.

Let's face it. I disliked Quentin almost immediately in Book #1 "The Magicians". Disliking the main character often (though not always) makes it difficult to like the book. I also disliked Fillory. I kept thinking - "This fantasy land is so silly". I liked Brakebills a bit better. While the magicians were on earth, learning the ropes (so to speak) of magic, I was entertained. Fillory was too strange, and there was too much angst among the young people.

Fast forward to Book #2 "The Magician King". I remember I liked this book much better because it focused on Julia and I like Julia. Unfortunately, I did not remember much of what happened in this book when I started to read Book #3 "The Magician's Land".

This proved to be a bit of a problem. Lev Grossman doesn't do much in the way of mentioning things that happened in the previous books, although there are a few mentions of what happened in Book #1 which was helpful. But Book #2? Not much was said so I struggled. Finally, I just went with the flow and took the story as is without a back story. I did get some help from the Internet and friends (thanks, Mona!) about some key plot points of Book #2 when I was halfway through.

Moral of all this - read these books all together, since they are all published now. Especially if your memory is as bad as mine.

As for this book itself - Quentin is almost likable. Fillory is still weird. The search for the missing briefcase is entertaining, though it doesn't end up like I thought it would. Actually, a lot of things that I thought would happen didn't happen or didn't happen the way I thought. That's good that I can be surprised, but I felt that this whole entire story line was just - odd. I also felt like there were some loose ends that didn't get tidied up.

Syfy is planning on a movie of this series. I saw earlier this month they had some cast members picked out, but so far no one for Quentin Coldwater. They are supposed to start production Dec 2014. ( )

The Magician's Land by Lev Grossman is the perfect ending to his Magicians trilogy. I would say that it's not the ending I expected, but I honestly had no idea what to expect. It's not a typical happy ending, but that's a good thing—a happy ending would betray the entire concept of the trilogy. So the ending isn't fairy tale happy, but it's very satisfying. It leaves the reader and the characters satiated, without any pandering or overly cheery false notes.

In retrospect, it takes on an appearance of inevitability. Having read it, it now feels like the only ending possible. It rings true.

The Magician's Land is both grand in scope and strangely mundane. But that mundanity is also what makes it profound.

This is difficult to put into words...

It reminds me of how Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman end stories—it's unexpected, original, and hugely imaginative. But it's also intimate, personal, and it acknowledges the fundamental fact that the world (all worlds, any world) doesn't have fairy tale endings. But the endings we do get are enough, and can be deeply satisfying, if we just accept them and make the best of it.

At heart, the Magicians trilogy charts the growth of Quentin and his friends from wild, cynical college kids to powerful, responsible adults. From the beginning of the first book, I wanted Quentin to realize that he was a good kid. Instead, he squandered his heart, made too many stupid decisions, and almost destroyed his life and others. In this, he's typical of many aimless youth.

It's tremendously gratifying to see him grow into his true and honest self as an adult, to see him finally understand who he is and accept the responsibilities that are his to take on.

I admit that I had some doubts about this series after reading the first book. But the second book put those doubts to rest, and the third completely fulfills the premise of the story, the potential of the characters, and the promise of the world. ( )

“The Magician’s Land” is the strongest book in Grossman’s series. It not only offers a satisfying conclusion to Quentin Coldwater’s quests, earthly and otherwise, but also considers complex questions about identity and selfhood as profound as they are entertaining.
