MagiciansThe Magicians by Lev Grossman (Plume, paperback, $16.00, releases 5/25/10)
Mixing the magic of beloved children's fantasy classics with the sex, excess, angst, and anticlimax of life in college and beyond, Lev Grossman  reimagines modern-day fantasy for grownups. Quentin Coldwater lives in a state of perpetual melancholy, privately obsessed with his childhood books about the enchanted land of Fillory. When he's admitted to the surreptitious Brakebills Academy for an education in magic, Quentin finds mastering spells is tedious (and love is even more fraught). Then he discovers the magical land of Fillory is real and launches an expedition to use his powers to set things right in the kingdom--which, naturally, turns out to be a much murkier proposition than expected.
