Genre: Fiction

In der geheimen Welt des verborgenen Wissens hat die Macht einen schrecklich hohen Preis Quentin Coldwater steht kurz vor dem Abschluss der Highschool. Die Schule langweilt ihn – wie ihn eigentlich alles langweilt außer Fillory, das magische Land aus den phantastischen Büchern, die er liebt. Doch plötzlich findet sich Quentin, der gerade noch durch Brooklyn gelaufen ist, selbst in einer magischen Welt wieder, an einer geheimen Zauberschule: Brakebills College. Und auch Fillory gibt es wirklich. Aber es ist keine heile Welt, sondern ein düsterer Ort, von dem eine schreckliche Bedrohung ausgeht. Quentin und seine Freunde begeben sich auf eine gefährliche Reise – und müssen sich einem alles entscheidenden Kampf stellen... »Fillory verhält sich zu Harry Potter wie ein Glas Whiskey zu einem Becher dünnen Tees. Fest verankert sowohl in der Tradition des Fantasyromans als auch in der der allgemeinen Literatur, spielt er an auf die Welten von Oz und Narnia - auch Harry Potter lässt grüßen. Aber glauben Sie ja nicht, das sei ein Kinderbuch. Grossmans Gefühlswelten sind durch und durch erwachsen, seine Erzählweise düster, gefährlich und voller überraschender Wendungen. Hogwarts war nie so« George R. R. Martin, Das Lied von Eis und Feuer – A Game of Thrones
