It is 1938 when Eveline follows her husband into the wilderness of Minnesota. Though their cabin is rundown, they have all of the standard living essentials and a new baby boy named Hux. But while her husband is away taking care of his sick father, Eveline is raped and becomes pregnant. She gives the child away, and while Hux grows up hunting and fishing in the woods with his parents, his sister is raised an orphan. Years later, haunted by the knowledge of this forsaken girl, Hux decides to find his sister and bring her home to the cabin.

Quentin Coldwater has lost everything. He has been cast out of Fillory, the secret magical land of his childhood dreams that he once ruled.

With nothing left to lose he returns to where his story began, the Brakebills Preparatory College of Magic. But he can't hide from his past, and it's not long before it comes looking for him.  The Magician's Land is an intricate and fantastical thriller, and an epic of love and redemption that brings the Magicians trilogy to a magnificent conclusion.
