Return to Fillory in the riveting sequel to the
New York Times bestseller and literary phenomenon, The
Quentin Coldwater should be happy. He escaped a miserable
Brooklyn childhood, matriculated at a secret college for magic, and
graduated to discover that Fillory-a fictional utopia-was actually
real. But even as a Fillorian king, Quentin finds little peace. His
old restlessness returns, and he longs for the thrills a heroic
quest can bring.
Accompanied by his oldest friend, Julia, Quentin sets off-only
to somehow wind up back in the real world and not in Fillory, as
they''d hoped. As the pair struggle to find their way back to their
lost kingdom, Quentin is forced to rely on Julia''s
illicitly-learned sorcery as they face a sinister threat in a world
very far from the beloved fantasy novels of their youth.
