Haboring secret preoccupations with a magical land he read about in a childhood fantasy series, Quentin Coldwater is unexpectedly admitted into an exclusive college of magic and rigorously educated in modern sorcery.
Quentin Coldwater slogs through his life as a bored teenager in Brooklyn, burying himself in books like the fantasy series set in a magical land called Fillory that he's been enamored with for years. But when he gains entrance to the Brakebills College for Magical Pedagogy, a whole new exciting world opens. He meets people who've also always felt like outsiders (including the lovely Alice) and learns the arts of magic. He also learns that Fillory is a real place--but that knowledge comes with a steep price. Soon his new relationships are crumbling around him, the school is in danger, and he's forced into a life-or-death battle with some very evil beings.
