I finished The Magicians last night. It was REALLY good!! I'm glad I read it. I am now going to have to read the squeal, The Magician King. The story wasn't the same tone of story I normally read. The characters are mainly unhappy with life, no matter how many times they get exactly what they want! This book has been described as a polarizing book, people either loving it or hating it. From what I've heard from people who didn't like it, they thought that the characters were too 'real'. I think that's what I liked most about it.
Tuesday, May 1st, The Serpent's Shadow (Kane Chronicles Series #3) by Rick Riordan come out!! I am so excited!!! I can't wait to see if they defeat Chaos!
From the book:
He's b-a-a-ack! Despite their best efforts, Carter and Sade Kane can't seem to keep Apophis, the chaos snake, down. Now Apophis is threatening to plunge the world into eternal darkness, and the Kanes are faced with the impossible task of having to destroy him once and for all. Unfortunately, the magicians of the House of Life are on the brink of civil war, the gods are divided, and the young initiates of Brooklyn House stand almost alone against the forces of chaos. The Kanes' only hope is an ancient spell that might turn the serpent's own shadow into a weapon, but the magic has been lost for a millennia. To find the answer they need, the Kanes must rely on the murderous ghost of a powerful magician who might be able to lead them to the serpent's shadow . . . or might lead them to their deaths in the depths of the underworld.
Nothing less than the mortal world is at stake when the Kane family fulfills its destiny in this thrilling conclusion to the Kane Chronicles.
