The Magicians is based in part on Lev Grossman’s best-selling novels. Quentin Coldwater was a Brooklyn teenager. He discovered that magic is possible and that the world from his favorite series exists in real life. He does not go to a regular college and instead enrolls at Brakebills University. He can only learn and grow as a magician through proper education.
He quickly realizes that while magic may be as captivating as his imagination, it can also prove to be dangerous. Even though he’s not part of any college, he still enjoys college life as any normal teenager. His passion for magic means that he isn’t content. His dreams end up being more dangerous than he anticipated.
It doesn’t take too long before those dreams turn into nightmares. Quentin is aware that even though his favorite series may be real, Quentin’s love for magic will not be easy. This would mean that his power would come at a horrible price.
