The Magician King, by Lev Grossman

Scroll down to content

2nd book in the series being billed as Harry Potter for Adults, although really it’s more like the Narnia books in most respects. I thought it was much stronger than the first book, The Magicians, but really pretty similar. A modern retelling of Narnia books, this one more like Prince Caspian.

I recommend it if you read a lot and like these sorts of books — you know who you are — but probably not if your reading list is super highly constrained and you’re trying to pick the very best books of the year.
