NEWS | Sequel to Lev Grossman's The Magicians signed


During my interview with Lev Grossman last year he hinted at a sequel to The Magicians, which now has a title: The Magician King. This is very exciting news for those of us who enjoyed The Magicians and for the other possibilities Grossman left open to explore.  Here is the announcement from Publisher's Weekly:
Tina Bennett at Janklow and Nesbit has closed on a sequel to Lev Grossman’s The Magicians. Molly Stern at Viking (who edited The Magicians) bought North American rights to The Magician King. The new book picks up with protagonist Quentin Coldwater five years after the original—at the end of The Magicians Coldwater is 23—when he and his friends have become royalty in the fantasy world of Fillory. Coldwater, who is dealing with the challenges of being a member of the ruling class, embarks on a dark quest in the novel, which Bennett called “Voyage of the Dawn Treader [book 5 in the Chronicles of Narnia] as rewritten by Raymond Chandler.”
The Magician King is slated for a Fall 2011 release on Viking's schedule. Mark this as my first Looking Forward Fantasy of 2011.

It's actually book three of Narnia, the pre-Chandlerized "Dawn Treader."

It was the third book published, but C.S. Lewis considered it the fifth volume. He thought of Narnia in order of chronology, with the Magician's Nephew and A Horse and his Boy being books 1 and 2, respectively.

I am so excited now that I know there is a sequel coming out. When I first read the Magicians, I loved the whole read but was sorely disappointed by the incomplete-feeling ending. Now that there is a sequel forthcoming, I am full of love for the book all over again.
