Eric's Recent Reviews

The Magician’s Land is the apex of an incredible story about pursuing dreams after they’ve been stripped away, of crossing the line into unknown dangerous territory, and continuing the journey of self-discovery well into adulthood. It starts out like Ocean’s Eleven but in a contemporary fantasy world with elements of Harry Potter meets Chronicles of Narnia for adults resulting in a story that immediately captivates.
 
 
 
 
I loved this book! It was so good I want to see a movie of it! The story felt like a cross between the lovable storytelling of Disney and the gothic nature of a Tim Burton film. The main characters of Thorn and Lily are captivating as they face dangers, explore the unknown and growing stronger because of it. A fast paced sword and sorcery book I couldn’t put it down.
