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

The New York Times bestselling novel about a young man practicing magic in the real world, now an original series on SYFY “The Magicians is to Harry Potter as a shot of Irish whiskey is to a glass of weak tea. . . . Hogwarts was never like this.” —George R.R. Martin “Sad, hilarious, beautiful, and essential to anyone who cares about modern fantasy.” —Joe Hill “A very knowing and wonderful take on the wizard school genre.” —John Green “The Magicians may just be the most subversive, gripping and enchanting fantasy novel I’ve read this century.” —Cory Doctorow “This gripping novel draws on the conventions of contemporary and classic fantasy novels in order to upend them . . . an unexpectedly moving coming-of-age story.” —The New Yorker “The best urban fantasy in years.” —A.V. Club 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.

Quentin muss die sieben goldenen Schlüssel finden, um nicht nur Fillory sondern alle magischen Welten und damit die Welt selbst zu retten. Quentin und seine Freunde, Julia, Janet und Eliot, sind nach Fillory zurückgekehrt, um in dieser magischen Welt als Könige und Königinnen zu leben. Aber schon bald wird Quentin dieser so ausgeglichenen und unveränderlichen Welt überdrüssig – er will das Abenteuer und er will sich nützlich machen. Als die Außeninsel ihre Steuern nicht bezahlt, nimmt er das zum Anlass, sich dorthin auf die Reise zu machen. Er hat ein uraltes Segelschiff gefunden, dass er aufwendig restaurieren lässt und sticht schließlich mit Julia und seinen Freunden in See. Doch was sie nicht wissen, ist, dass Julia sich auf einen gefährlichen Handel mit einer Gruppe abtrünniger Magier eingelassen hat. Sie erhält außergewöhnliche Kräfte, büßt dafür aber ihre Menschlichkeit ein. Und diese Magier haben zudem die alten Götter heraufbeschworen, die die magischen Welten zerstören wollen. Nur wenn Quentin und seine Freunde die sieben goldenen 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.

In this enchanting debut novel, Galen Beckett weaves a dazzling spell of adventure and suspense, evoking a world of high magick and genteel society—a world where one young woman discovers that her modest life is far more extraordinary than she ever imagined. Of the three Lockwell sisters—romantic Lily, prophetic Rose, and studious Ivy—all agree that it’s the eldest, the book-loving Ivy, who has held the family together ever since their father’s retreat into his silent vigil in the library upstairs. Everyone blames Mr. Lockwell’s malady on his magickal studies, but Ivy alone still believes—both in magic and in its power to bring her father back. But there are others in the world who believe in magick as well. Over the years, Ivy has glimpsed them—the strangers in black topcoats and hats who appear at the door, strangers of whom their mother will never speak. Ivy once thought them secret benefactors, but now she’s not so certain. After tragedy strikes, Ivy takes a job with the reclusive Mr. Quent in a desperate effort to preserve her family. It’s only then that she discovers the fate she shares with a jaded young nobleman named Dashton Rafferdy, his ambitious friend Eldyn Garritt, and
