Desvelada la portada de The Magician’s Land

magiciansParece que esta semana la cosa va de portadas. En esta ocasión, desde A.V. Club nos dejan ver la que será la carta de presentación de la última entrega de la trilogía The magicians, “The magician’s Land” de Lev Grossman que se pondrá a la venta el cinco de agosto del año que viene.

En una primera impresión la portada no parece decir mucho, pero si habéis leído los libros anteriores y conocéis el reino de Fillory, el hecho de que solo se vean las copas de los árboles bajo tanta nieve puede ser muy revelador.

Aquí tenéis la sinopsis, pero no os recomiendo leerla a menos que ya conozcais la historia de Quentin.

In The Magician’s Land, the stunning conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Magicians trilogy—on-sale from Viking on August 5—Quentin Coldwater has been cast out of Fillory, the secret magical land of his childhood dreams. With nothing left to lose he returns to where his story be­gan, the Brakebills Preparatory College of Magic. But he can’t hide from his past, and it’s not long before it comes looking for him.

Along with Plum, a brilliant young under­graduate with a dark secret of her own, Quentin sets out on a crooked path through a magical demi­monde of gray magic and desperate characters. But all roads lead back to Fillory, and his new life takes him to old haunts, like Antarctica, and to buried secrets and old friends he thought were lost for­ever. He uncovers the key to a sorcery masterwork, a spell that could create magical utopia, a new Fillory—but casting it will set in motion a chain of events that will bring Earth and Fillory crashing together. To save them he will have to risk sacrific­ing everything.

The Magician’s Land is an intricate thriller, a fantastical epic, and an epic of love and redemp­tion that brings the Magicians trilogy to a magnifi­cent conclusion, confirming it as one of the great achievements in modern fantasy. It’s the story of a boy becoming a man, an apprentice becoming a master, and a broken land finally becoming whole.
