In a secret world of forbidden knowledge, power comes at a terrible price....
Quentin Coldwater's life is changed forever by an apparently chance encounter: when he turns up for his entrance interview to Princeton, he finds his interviewer dead - but a strange envelope bearing Quentin's name leads him down a path very different from any he'd ever imagined.
The envelope, and the mysterious manuscript it contains, leads to a secret world of obsession and privilege, a world of freedom and power; and, for a while, it's a world that seems to answer all Quentin's desires. But the idyll cannot last - and when it's finally shattered, Quentin is drawn into something darker and far more dangerous than anything he could ever have expected....

Great story but uninspired narrator

Was hat Ihnen am allerbesten an The Magicians, Book 1 gefallen?

I wanted to have the book as I recently became hooked to the SyFy Series... anyways, the story only loosely resembles that of the TV Series, and that means I get two stories set in a similar world, which I quiet enjoy. Both are equally gripping.

Würden Sie es noch mal mit einem anderen Hörbuch mit Mark Bramhall versuchen?

Rather not. The narrator reads passages that are filled with tension in a very sleepy, anticlimactic manner. I will probably buy and read the other books, as this lethargic tone is annoying.

Really dark story - not your average coming-of-age magic. But there are some non realistic twists which diminish the fun.
