Rowling, The THE FIRST BOOK IN LEV GROSSMAN’S CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED MAGICIAN TRILOGY _____ Praise for the Magician Trilogy: ‘Stirring, complex, adventurous . . . superb’ – JUNOT DIAZ, author of DROWN and THE BRIEF WONDROUS LIFE OF OSCAR WAO ‘A sophisticated, subtle novel that is also magical fun’ – THE TIMES I first read this book as a teenager, sometime around 1990. At the time my friends and I considered Magician to be the pinnacle of the Fantasy genre, and I still see it discussed with the same reverence today. A few years back I reread Magician with very high expectations, but found it a fairly bland read. Neither the story or its characters Magician is a fantasy novel by American writer Raymond E. Feist. It is the first book of the Riftwar Saga and was published in 1982. It led to many books written by Feist in the world of Midkemia, which was the setting for this book.
