The Book Trailer Of The Magician's Land By Lev Grossman Has Been Released

Since Lev Grossman announced that he is running a contest for the trailer of his upcoming book, The Magician's Land, I've been waiting for it to come out already. I know I am rushing it to the extreme, but who wouldn't?

If you only knew that the trailer would feature other author's as well -- Terry Brooks, Neil Gaiman, Michelle Hodkin, Gregory Maguire, Erin Morgenstern, Patrick Rothfuss, Rainbow Rowell, Gary Shteyngart, Peter Straub, Charles Stross, and J. Courtney Sullivan -- then you might just feel the way I feel. Yeah I am not part of the trailer, but other lucky fans certainly did get the 5-second shot to fame.

Watch the book trailer of The Magician's Land by Lev Grossman, the final book in The Magicians trilogy.


The stunning conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Magicians trilogy

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.

The Magician's Land by Lev Grossman

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.

The Magician's Land by Lev Grossman will be available on August 5, 2014. By that time I will finally complete the trilogy in hardcover. Yay!
