In his debut novel Codex was published to great critical acclaim. He lives in Brooklyn, New York. But he is getting restless: even in heaven a man needs a little adventure.
So when a steward is murdered on a morning's hunt Quentin gets exactly that. But this quest is like no other.
What starts as a glorified cruise to faraway lands soon becomes the stuff of nightmares. But Quentin was once a man from modern-day Earth, where he attended a secret college of sorcerers, and no matter how far he has strayed from his origins, he cannot escape the consequences of his own deeds Literary perfection.
Forget Hogwarts: this is where the magic really is. It's strange, fanciful, extravagant, eccentric, and truly remarkable - a great story, masterfully told. Read more Read less. Review "Lev Grossman's novel is full of magic No customer reviews.

Yes, it's a long novel. I expect a little bit of drag. Not, however, the impending doom I felt every time I opened the book to reread the same few sentences over and over trying to keep anything in my head. Our same band of extremely unlikable characters continues in Fillory, a wonderful world that's mostly a gory rip off of Wonderland and Narnia. Our antihero Quentin is now one of two kings of Fillory. And still not really worth a damn regardless. Magical prowess beyond wonders, and he goes off the deep end over his ex, then screws an annoying secondary character that's around for a blink and gone.
The dual storylines between Quentin in the present and Julia in the past is the only thing that kept me reading, besides that I didn't want to waste money. Julia's past resonates with any person addicted to anything, she will do whatever it takes to get magic. Quentin is even envious of its life at one point and questions how sloths see the world.

Go read the books. The Dragon! Yes, she lives in the waters of Venice, Italy in the book, but at least she was in the show and demands the button from Quentin for access to the Underworld. So stoked to see the dragon. And if you are wondering what was missing from the show — lots of sailing and keys. BTW, there are some gorgeous photography on the SyFy site of the cast.
