The Magician King (The Magicians #2) - Lev Grossman While infinitely better than book #1 (The Magicians), the pitiful payoff is unequal to the pain and trauma Lev Grossman puts his characters through to entice further exploration from this reader. I'm perfectly find going into certain novels knowing the ending will be unsatisfactory, but novels beginning with an "epic fantasy" premise carry the promise tend to come with a guaranteed epic return on investment. (Unless we're talking George R.R. Martin, but most readers know going into the Song of Fire and Ice, characters get sh*t piled on top of sh*t). Lev Grossman's novels have been "gut the reader like a fish, here's your booby prize, thanks for playing." Pardon me for taking a pass on round three.
