Lev Grossman könyvei a rukkolán


Lev Grossman - A ​varázslókirály
Quentin ​és barátai elfoglalták Filloryt, királyokként és királynőkként uralkodnak a mesés világ felett, ahol semmi dolguk nincs, mint élvezni a hőstörténetek végén jutalmul járó boldogságot és vagyont. Egy nap azonban a felhőtlen uralkodásnak vége szakad: előbb a mágikus órafákkal történik valami borzalmas, majd kisvártatva egy nyúl halált és pusztulást jósol a világra. Quentin hajóra száll Juliával, hogy a rejtély végére járjon, azonban Filloryt elhagyva még ő sem sejti, hogy a varázslás és ezzel együtt minden varázslatos dolog mekkora veszélybe került, az idejük pedig már jócskán fogytán van. Lev Grossman a legnagyobbakat megszégyenítő módon kerüli el a folytatások gyakori hibáit, és építi tovább lenyűgözően azt a világot, aminek _A varázslók_ban lefektette az alapköveit. _A varázslókirály_ nem csak elképzeli, hogy milyen lett volna a _Mátrix_ fantasyként, de a hagyományokat felrúgva, váratlan és forradalmi ötletek folyamatos felsorakoztatásával jelzi, hogy a szerzője nem szégyelli a műfajt fenekestül felforgatni.

Lev Grossman - A ​varázslók
A ​többi fiatalhoz hasonlóan Quentin Coldwater sem hisz a varázslatokban egészen addig, míg egy zártkörű és titkos egyetem hallgatója nem lesz New York egy eldugott részében. S noha a tanulás évei úgy telnek, mint bárhol máshol – barátokra tesz szert, rendszeresen lerészegedik, majd idővel lefekszik valakivel, akibe beleszeret –, a titkos tudás örökre megváltoztatja őt. Kitűnően sajátítja el a modern varázstudományt, ám a szíve mélyén mindig is vágyott nagy kalandot és boldogságot nem kapja meg hozzá. Egy nap a barátaival azonban felfedeznek valami hatalmasat, ami mindent megváltoztathat. _A varázslók_ komor történet a felnőtté válásról, második esélyekről és arról, hogy ha valamit nagyon görcsösen akarunk, akkor talán soha nem kapjuk meg. A könyv a 2009-es megjelenését követően hatalmas vitát váltott ki és nagyon megosztotta a fantasy műfaj kedvelőit – vannak, akik nem is hajlandóak ekként tekinteni rá, hanem kortárs regényként kezelik –, de emiatt csak többen és többen olvasták el. Végül óriási siker és New York Times Bestseller lett, többek közt George R. R. Martin, John Green, Audrey Niffenegger és William Gibson is rendkívüli elismeréssel méltatta, ráadásul a folytatásokkal a szerző végleg lefektette a 21. századi fantasy alapköveit.

Lev Grossman - A ​varázsló birodalma
Quentin ​Coldwatert száműzték Filloryból, a mesés világból, amiben hitt és amit egész életében keresett. Vesztenivaló híján most visszatér varázslatos utazásainak kiindulópontjába, a Varázskapu Egyetemre, ám nem telik el sok idő, és a múlt kísérteni kezdi. Egy ragyogó elméjű fiatal egyetemistával együtt hamarosan útra kel, előbb az Antarktiszra, ahol régi barátokkal találkozik, majd egy szürke mágiával és elkeseredett, kétes alakokkal teli világba. Eközben Fillory mágikus határai gyengülni kezdenek, és északról egy barbár sereg támadást indít ellene. Eliotnak és Janetnek - Filloy királyának és királynőjének - hajóra kell szállniuk, hogy elvégezzenek egy veszélyes, utolsó küldetést. Kisvártatva olyan események sora veszi kezdetét, ami nem csak Filloryt és minden varázslatosat, hanem az egész Földet is pusztulásba taszíthatja. Quentinnek pedig mindent kockára kell tennie, ezúttal azonban a tét már nem csak a saját boldogsága. _A varázsló birodalma_ egy fordulatos thriller és egy epikus fantasy találkozása, hősies történet a szerelemről és megváltásról, egy fiú férfivá éréséről, egy tanonc mesterré válásáról és egy megtört birodalom felemelkedéséről. Lev Grossman A varázslók-trilógiájának letehetetlenül lendületes, végtelenül eredeti befejezése a 2014-es megjelenését követően szinte minden tudományos-fantasztikus toplista élén végzett, szerzője pedig a modern fantasy koronázatlan királyává vált.

Lev Grossman - Lilah Sturges - The ​Magicians: Alice's Story
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 not 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. A land where magic flows like rivers . . . But in this magical realm nothing is what it seems to be, and something darker lies behind the spellbinding facade. It is in the darkness where Alice will discover her true calling and her life, and those friends, forever changed. Acclaimed novelist Lev Grossman teams with New York Times bestselling writer Lilah Sturges (Lumberjanes: The Infernal Compass), and breakout artist Pius Bak for a new look at the smash hit trilogy The Magicians.

Lev Grossman - Lilah Sturges - The ​Magicians 1.

Lev Grossman - La ​terre du magicien
Quentin ​a tout perdu. Privé de sa couronne, chassé du royaume de Fillory qui lui est désormais interdit, irrémédiablement séparé de ses amis les plus chers, il n’est plus qu’un marginal errant sans repères et sans espoir. Retourner à Brakebills, le foyer de son apprentissage, pour y enseigner à son tour ? Ce ne sera qu’un amer feu de paille. Alors pourquoi ne pas s’acoquiner avec ce groupe hétéroclite de magiciens à la petite semaine, recrutés pour s’emparer, façon commando, d’une valise mystérieuse au contenu peut-être bien inestimable ? De pérégrinations en découvertes, de secrets enfouis en révélations éblouissantes, il est vrai que tous les chemins mènent à Fillory. Fillory qui se meurt. La fin des temps est annoncée ; les nouveaux souverains ont entrepris une quête désespérée…

Lev Grossman - La ​Tierra del Mago
Quentin ​Coldwater ha sido expulsado de Fillory, la tierra mágica secreta de sus sueños de infancia. Sin nada que perder, regresa al lugar donde empezó su historia, la escuela de magia Brakebills. Sin embargo, no puede esconderse de su pasado, y este no tarda en acudir en su busca. Junto con Plum, una joven y brillante estudiante que guarda su propio, oscuro secreto, Quentin parte por una senda tortuosa a través de un territorio de magia gris y personajes desesperados. Pero todos los caminos llevan a Fillory, y su nueva vida lo conduce a viejos santuarios como la Antártida y a secretos sepultados y viejos amigos que creía haber perdido para siempre. Quentin desvela la clave de una obra maestra de la hechicería, un encantamiento que podría crear una utopía mágica, un nuevo Fillory, pero lanzar ese hechizo pondrá en marcha una cadena de sucesos que lo llevarán a arriesgarse a sacrificarlo todo.

Lev Grossman - Magicienii
Quentin ​Coldwater nu seamănă cu niciunul dintre colegii lui de liceu. În timpul liber recitește cărțile fantasy preferate din copilărie și în vis îi însoțește pe protagoniștii lor în lumea magică numită Fillory. În comparație cu aventurile din cărți, viața îi pare anostă și lipsită de culoare. Totul se schimbă însă atunci când este admis într-un colegiu secret și exclusiv de magie în afara New York-ului. Acolo încep peripețiile lui și o inițiere riguroasă în magia modernă. Dar, în cele din urmă, după un timp nici magia nu îi mai aduce fericirea și ineditul pe care Quetin le aștepta de la viață – asta până când el și prietenii săi fac o descoperire uimitoare: Fillory există cu adevărat.

Lev Grossman - O ​Rei Mago
Passaram-se ​dois anos desde que Quentin Coldwater deixou o nosso mundo para, ao lado de Eliot, Janet e Julia, assumir um dos quatro tronos de Fillory, o reino mágico saído das páginas de uma adorada série de literatura fantástica que, assim como a magia, ele descobriu ser algo bem real. Apesar de a incursão anterior ao território filloriano ter sido trágica, ele agora desfrutava de um reino em tempos de paz, cercado de todo o luxo que uma nobreza real poderia oferecer e adorado por seus agradecidos súditos pagadores de impostos. Como reclamar de um final feliz como esse? Quentin, no entanto, não se sentia um herói. E achava que a aventura ainda não tinha acabado. Ele tinha razão.Agora, exilado no mais tedioso e “não mágico” subúrbio do Brooklyn, Quentin finalmente tem a chance de se tornar o herói que sempre desejou ser. Mas logo fica claro que é da magia marginal de Julia, a amarga e reservada Julia – aprendida nas ruas, longe da proteção dos professores de Brakebills e sabe-se lá a que custo – que os dois dependem para voltar para casa e salvar algo muito maior da ameaça que os colocou nesse apuro. Repleto de surpresas, humor negro e um amor genuíno pelo gênero fantástico, O Rei Mago dá continuidade à aventura iniciada em Os Magos – sucesso de público e de crítica prestes a ser adaptado para uma série de TV. Os jovens magos de Lev Grossman, irônicos, maldosos e ambíguos, dão mais um passo rumo ao sombrio mundo adulto de escolhas e arrependimentos, mais perigoso que qualquer mundo de fantasia jamais criado. Um lugar em que jornadas não implicam achar, mas transformar-se em algo.

Lev Grossman - Lilah Sturges - The ​Magicians 4.
After ​discovering carnage in the midst of the Brakebills library, it’s clear that there is something much bigger at hand than the rivalry between the hedge witches and the traditional magicians. Someone, or something sinister is at work, and Dean Fogg will finally have to reveal the truth behind opening the doors of Brakebills to the hedges… and what it means for their future.

Lev Grossman - Lilah Sturges - The ​Magicians 3.
After ​the shocking conclusion of the last issue, the five students chosen to learn battle magic are forced to confront the terrible consequences of what they’ve done, and what it could mean for the future of Brakebills.

Lev Grossman - Regele ​magician
Doi ​ani dupa intamplarile din Magicienii, Quentin si prietenii lui au ajuns regi si regine in Fillory, dar viata lor magica nu este paradisul care pare a fi. Zilele si noptile de bucurii regale incep sa isi piarda gustul iar intr-o dimineata, cand o vanatoare ia o turnura tragica, Quentin si Julia sunt nevoiti sa se imbarce pe o barca fermecata cu vele care ii va duce intr-o calatorie departe de regatul lor.

Lev Grossman - Der ​König der Zauberer

Nur wenn Quentin und seine Freunde die sieben Schlüssel finden, können sie die Welt retten. Eine fantastische Suche beginnt, die die Freunde von Fillory über Chesterton, Massachusetts, Venedig und die Jenseitsinsel bis ans Ende der Welt führt.

Lev Grossman - The ​Silver Arrow
From ​the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Magicians comes a must-read, wholly original middle-grade debut perfect for fans of The Chronicles of Narnia and Roald Dahl Dear Uncle Herbert, You've never met me, but I'm your niece Kate, and since it is my birthday tomorrow and you are super-rich could you please send me a present? Kate and her younger brother Tom lead dull, uninteresting lives. And if their dull, uninteresting parents are anything to go by, they don't have much to look forward to. Why can't Kate have thrilling adventures and save the world the way people do in books? Even her 11th birthday is shaping up to be mundane -- that is, until her mysterious and highly irresponsible Uncle Herbert, whom she's never even met before, surprises her with the most unexpected, exhilarating, inappropriate birthday present of all time: a colossal steam locomotive called the Silver Arrow. Kate and Tom's parents want to send it right back where it came from. But Kate and Tom have other ideas -- and so does the Silver Arrow -- and soon they're off to distant lands along magical rail lines in the company of an assortment of exotic animals who, it turns out, can talk. With only curiosity, excitement, their own resourcefulness and the thrill of the unknown to guide them, Kate and Tom are on the adventure of a lifetime . . . and who knows? They just might end up saving the world after all. This thrilling fantasy adventure will not only entertain young readers but inspire them to see the beautiful, exciting, and precious world around them with new eyes.

Lev Grossman - Magikerna
Sex, ​droger och magi! Quentin Coldwater är begåvad men olycklig. Han går sista året på high school och är bevisligen ett geni. Dock är han fortfarande hemligt besatt av en serie fantasyböcker han läste som liten, om det magiska landet Fillory. I jämförelse med det känns allting i det riktiga livet grått och meningslöst. Allting förändras när Quentin oväntat blir antagen till Brakebills, ett hemligt och synnerligen exklusivt college i New York, där han ska komma att genomgå en grundlig och tuff utbildning i hur man praktiserar modern magi. Han bekantar sig också med annat man stöter på i college: vänskap, kärlek, sex, alkohol och droger. Trots det saknas någonting fortfarande, och magin skänker honom inte den lycka och äventyrslust han hoppats på. Det finns heller ingenting som kan förbereda honom på den förbluffande upptäckt som väntar efter examen … Magikerna är den första och efterlängtade delen i trilogin som gick rakt in på New York Times bästsäljarlista. Boken släpptes i USA 2009, den är såld till 23 länder och filmrättigheterna för boken är sålda. I augusti 2011 belönades Grossman med John W. Campbell Award för bästa nykomling.

Cinq années d’un rude et dangereux apprentissage l’y attendent.Mais le monde réel, même revu par la magie, n’apporte pas forcément le bonheur.

Lev Grossman - Codex
About ​to depart on his first vacation in years, Edward Wozny, a hot-shot young banker, is sent to help one of his firm's most important and mysterious clients. When asked to un-crate and organise a personal library of rare books, Edward's indignation turns to intrigue as he realises that among the volumes there may be hidden a unique medieval codex, a treasure kept sealed away for many years and for many reasons. Edward's intrigue becomes an obsession that only deepens as friends draw him into a peculiar and addictive computer game, as mystifying parallels between the game's virtual reality and the legend of the codex emerge...

Lev Grossman - Magikernas ​kung
I _Magikernas ​kung_ återser vi Quentin Coldwater och hans vänner, som nu är kungar och drottningar av Fillory. Men livet i kungligt överdåd har tappat sin charm och Quentin börjar bli rastlös. När en betjänt mördas under en jakttur blir det början på ett nytt äventyr – ett äventyr som inte liknar något annat. Det som förväntas bli en sorglös kryssning till fjärran länder tillsammans med barndomsvännen Julia, förvandlas till en mardröm där de utan förvarning kastas tillbaka till Quentins dystra föräldrahem. Väl där visar det sig att endast Julias hemmagjorda version av svart magi kan rädda dem och allt de håller kärt. Magikernas kung är en mörk resa till djupet av fantasygenrens hjärta, ett episkt äventyr som befäster Lev Grossman som vår tids arvtagare till C.S. Lewis. Återvänd till Fillory i denna nervkittlande uppföljare till Lev Grossmans bästsäljare Magikerna, en av de mest omtalade fantasyromanerna sedan Harry Potter-serien.

Lev Grossman - The ​Magician King
Return ​to Fillory in the riveting sequel to The New York Times bestseller and literary phenomenon of 2009--The Magicians. The Magicians was praised as a triumph by readers and critics of both mainstream and fantasy literature. Now Grossman takes us back to Fillory, where the Brakebills graduates have fled the sorrows of the mundane world, only to face terrifying new challenges. Quentin and his friends are now the kings and queens of Fillory, but the days and nights of royal luxury are starting to pall. After a morning hunt takes a sinister turn, Quentin and his old friend Julia charter a magical sailing ship and set out on an errand to the wild outer reaches of their kingdom. Their pleasure cruise becomes an adventure when the two are unceremoniously dumped back into the last place Quentin ever wants to see: his parent's house in Chesterton, Massachusetts. And only the black, twisted magic that Julia learned on the streets can save them. The Magician King is a grand voyage into the dark, glittering heart of magic, an epic quest for the Harry Potter generation. It also introduces a powerful new voice, that of Julia, whose angry genius is thrilling. Once again Grossman proves that he is the modern heir to C.S. Lewis, and the cutting edge of literary fantasy.

Lev Grossman - Taramul ​magicianului
Quentin ​Coldwater a pierdut totul.

Aventurile lui Quentin il poarta din Antarctica pana in Olanda plina de magie, unde reintalneste vechi prieteni.

Lev Grossman - Lilah Sturges - The ​Magicians 2.
As ​the newly welcomed hedge Magicians and the traditional students come together for the first time in Brakebills history, things go wrong. A horrible accident leaves a student dead—and the only way to keep it a secret is for the two groups to work together.

Lev Grossman - Il ​re mago
Quentin ​Coldwater dovrebbe essere entusiasta. Brooklyn e la sua infanzia infelice sono un ricordo, è approdato alla scuola di magia di Brakebills, e lì ha scoperto che Fillory – il mondo incantato dei libri che divorava da bambino – esiste davvero; e adesso, lui e i suoi amici ne sono i re e le regine. Trascorrono le loro giornate immersi in un pae-saggio da fiaba fatto di alberi-orologio e animali parlanti, eppure Quentin è sempre più irrequieto. Questa nuova vita facile e spensierata non gli basta: lui desidera, con tutte le sue forze, un’avventura. E poi, ultimamente, a Fillory stanno succedendo cose strane e inquietanti… Così, insieme alla regina Julia, Quentin fa riparare una vecchia nave magica e prende il mare per raggiungere i confini estremi del regno. Sull’Isola Esterna viene a sapere della leggenda delle sette chiavi di Fillory e decide di andarle a cercare. Ecco l’avventura che bramava, ma sarà un’impresa ardua e dolorosa, che lo riporterà anche sull’odiata Terra e, soprattutto, lo obbligherà allo scontro con il pericoloso e rancoroso potere di Julia. Con il secondo volume della saga di Fillory, iniziata con Il mago (Rizzoli 2010), Grossman catapulta i suoi protagonisti nel cuore più scintillante e insieme più buio della magia. Ironico, ingegnoso, a tratti angosciante, Il re mago conferma Grossman quale moderno erede di C.S. Lewis ed esponente della nuova avanguardia del fantasy.Dalla trilogia è stata tratta la serie televisiva di culto The Magicians, trasmessa negli Stati Uniti dalla rete via cavo SyFy.

Lev Grossman - The ​Connector

Lev Grossman - Os ​Magos
Quentin ​Coldwater, um aluno do liceu intelectualmente precoce, foge ao tédio da vida diária lendo e relendo uma série de livros de fantasia passados num país encantado chamado Fillory. Como toda a gente, o jovem parte do princípio de que a magia não é real, até que se vê de repente admitido num colégio de magia muito secreto e muito exclusivo, a norte de Nova Iorque. Ao atravessar uma viela de Brooklyn, no Inverno, Quentin vê-se, em pleno fim de Verão, nos terrenos do idílico Colégio de Pedagogia Mágica de Brakebills e depois de passar por um difícil exame de admissão, inicia um complicado e rigoroso curso de feitiçaria moderna, ao mesmo tempo que descobre as alegrias da vida escolar: amizade, amor, sexo e bebida. Porém, falta-lhe qualquer coisa. Ao mesmo tempo que aprende a lançar feitiços, a transformar-se em animal e a adquirir poderes com que nunca sonhara, Quentin descobre que a magia não lhe dá a felicidade e a aventura com que sonhava. Um livro para os leitores que cresceram a devorar fantasia e que sentem falta de livros como Harry Potter. Ou para os que adoraram o mundo mágico de Nárnia. Os Mágicos é uma sábia fusão dos dois romances mais famosos das últimas décadas.

Lev Grossman - Die ​Zauberer
Der ​hochintelligente Einzelgänger Quentin Coldwater steht kurz vor dem Abschluss der Highschool. Vor der Langeweile des Alltags flüchtet er sich am liebsten in die fantastischen Romane, die in einem magischen Land, in Fillory, spielen. Natürlich ist Quentin davon überzeugt, dass es Zauberei in der realen Welt nicht gibt – bis er sich unerwartet an einem geheimen, sehr exklusiven College außerhalb von New York wiederfindet. Gerade noch ist er durch das winterliche Brooklyn gelaufen, als er plötzlich auf dem idyllischen Gelände des Brakebills-Colleges für Magische Pädagogik in der prallen Sommersonne steht. Als Quentin begreift, was mit ihm geschehen ist, ist er bereit, die ihm gebotene Chance zu ergreifen. Er beginnt, moderne Zauberei zu studieren und er genießt das Collegeleben: Freundschaft, Liebe und Sex. Aber irgendetwas fehlt. Obwohl er eine Macht gewinnt, von der er niemals zu träumen gewagt hätte, ist er nicht wirklich glücklich. Da machen er und seine Freunde eine atemberaubende Entdeckung: Das magische Land Fillory gibt es tatsächlich, aber es ist weitaus düsterer und bedrohlicher als Quentin es sich je vorgestellt hatte. Sie begeben sich auf eine gefährliche Reise…

Lev Grossman - Magikernas ​land
Quentin ​Coldwater har förlorat allt. Han har blivit utkastad ur Fillory – det hemliga och magiska landet från hans barndoms drömmar som han en gång härskade över. Utan något att förlora återvänder han till Brakebills College där allt började. Men man kan inte fly från sitt förflutna, och det dröjer inte länge förrän det kommer ikapp honom. Samtidigt har de magiska barriärer som skyddar Fillory börjat falla samman, och barbarer från norr har invaderat landet. Eliot och Janet försöker rädda sin värld, bara för att upptäcka att situationen är långt mer invecklad och ödesdiger än de någonsin kunnat ana. Tillsammans med Plum, en lysande ung magiker med en mörk hemlighet, ger sig Quentin ut på en slingrande resa genom den sjaskiga magiska undergroundscenen. Men alla vägar leder tillbaka till Fillory, och Quentin tvingas välja mellan att våga möta sina värsta rädslor eller offra allt. Magikernas land är en nervkittlande roman och en sagolik berättelse om kärlek och försoning som på ett magnifikt sätt avslutar trilogin om Magikerna, och därmed befäster trilogin som ett av de stora verken inom den moderna fantasygenren. Magikernas land gick direkt upp som etta på New York Times bästsäljarlista, när den släpptes i USA.

Lev Grossman - The ​Magicians / The Magician King
Two ​novels from _New York Times_ bestselling author Lev Grossman: _The Magicians_ and its riveting sequel, _The Magician King._ THE MAGICIANS: Quentin Coldwater is brilliant but miserable. A high school math genius, he's secretly fascinated with a series of children's fantasy novels set in a magical land called Fillory, and real life is disappointing by comparison. When Quentin is unexpectedly admitted to an elite, secret college of magic, it looks like his wildest dreams may have come true. But his newfound powers lead him down a rabbit hole of hedonism and disillusionment, and ultimately to the dark secret behind the story of Fillory. The land of his childhood fantasies turns out to be much darker and more dangerous than he ever could have imagined... THE MAGICIAN KING: Quentin Coldwater should be happy. He escaped a miserable Brooklyn childhood, matriculated at a secret college for magic, and graduated to discover that Fillory--a fictional utopia--was actually real. But even as a Fillorian king, Quentin finds little peace. His old restlessness returns, and he longs for the thrills a heroic quest can bring. Accompanied by his oldest friend, Julia, Quentin sets off--only to somehow wind up back in the real world and not in Fillory, as they'd hoped. As the pair struggle to find their way back to their lost kingdom, Quentin is forced to rely on Julia's illicitly learned sorcery as they face a sinister threat in a world very far from the beloved fantasy novels of their youth.

Lev Grossman - The ​Magician's Land
Quentin ​Coldwater has lost everything. He has been cast out of Fillory, the secret magical land of his childhood dreams that he once ruled. Everything he had fought so hard for, not to mention his closest friends, is sealed away in a land Quentin may never again visit. 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. Meanwhile, the magical barriers that keep Fillory safe are failing, and barbarians from the north have invaded. Eliot and Janet, the rulers of Fillory, embark on a final quest to save their beloved world, only to discover a situation far more complex—and far more dire—than anyone had envisioned. Along with Plum, a brilliant young magician with a dark secret of her own, Quentin sets out on a crooked path through a magical demimonde of gray magic and desperate characters. His new life takes him back to old haunts, like Antarctica and the Neitherlands, and old friends he thought were lost forever. He uncovers buried secrets and hidden evils and ultimately the key to a sorcerous masterwork, a spell that could create a magical utopia. But all roads lead back to Fillory, where Quentin must face his fears and put things right or die trying. The Magician’s Land is an intricate and fantastical thriller, and an epic of love and redemption that brings the Magicians trilogy to a magnificent conclusion, confirming it as one of the great achievements in modern fantasy. It’s the story of a boy becoming a man, an apprentice becoming a master, and a broken land finally becoming whole.

Lev Grossman - Král ​čaroděj
Quentin ​Coldwater by měl být šťastný. Po ne příliš pěkném dětství v Brooklynu vystudoval tajnou školu kouzel a zjistil, že fiktivní země Filorie, o které snil, skutečně existuje. Ačkoli v ní teď vládne, stále nenachází klid... Vydává se proto na cestu, aby přišel na to, co je s Filorií v nepořádku. Kam až ho jeho podivný neklid dovede? A dokáže se odtud zase vrátit? V mistrně napsaném románu se fantazie stává realitou a naopak.

Lev Grossman - Los ​magos
Quentin ​Coldwater es un chico brillante pero desdichado que vive obsesionado con las novelas de fantasía que leyó en su infancia y que transcurrían en un país mágico llamado Fillory. Cuál no será su sorpresa cuando, inesperadamente, es admitido en una muy secreta y exclusiva universidad de magia en Nueva York, donde recibirá una rigurosa educación sobre los arcanos de la moderna hechicería y descubrirá la amistad, el amor, el sexo, la bebida... y el aburrimiento. Porque a pesar de los increíbles descubrimientos que ha hecho a lo largo de estos años de universidad, siente que le falta algo. La magia no ha conseguido que Quentin encuentre la felicidad y las aventuras con que había soñado. Pero tras graduarse, él y sus amigos harán un descubrimiento asombroso: Fillory es real, aunque no exactamente como imaginaron en sus sueños de infancia... Psicológicamente penetrante y extraordinariamente absorbente. Los magos transita por territorios inexplorados, imaginando la magia como una actividad practicada por personas de carne y hueso, con sus deseos, sus caprichos y sus volubles emociones. Lev Grossman ha creado un mundo sumamente original en el que el bien y el mal nunca son absolutos, el sexo y el amor no son simples ni inocentes y la ambición por el poder tiene un precio terrible.

Lev Grossman - El ​bosque mágico

Su queste ha fracasado. ¿Lograrán regresar al país de sus sueños? Descubre "la novela que ha revolucionado el género de la fantasía", según el New York Times. Un mundo original y absorbente, con sus deseos, sus caprichos y sus volubles emociones.

No en vano, la novela ha estado en las listas de más vendidos del New York time y Amazon, y ha sido elogiada por autores de la talla de George R. R. Martin.

Lev Grossman - Warp
The ​story of a modern day Ulysses -- with the reality of post-graduation haze vollying off of Star Trek rerunsHollis lives in an area not too far from where he graduated from college. His friends do too. They all sleep late, talk about jobs they might get, girls they might see, money their parents might send them. All of these lives are seemingly on hold. Everything is going to happen. But Hollis has more than this: Another reality is running constantly in his head, one that leads him to believe that maybe, just maybe, it's time to get serious. Unlike other self-indulgent, whiny narratives of postgraduation angst, Warp is a lucid and immediate novel of what and where a twenty-something's mind is when it isn't even made up yet.
