Product Details


Advance Praise for The Bright Sword

“For anyone who’s ever craved a seat at the Round Table. Utterly enchanting.” 
—Rebecca Yarros, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Fourth Wing and Iron Flame

“If you love King Arthur as much as I do, you’ll love Lev Grossman’s The Bright Sword, a fresh and engrossing take on the Matter of Britain featuring a colorful cast of Round Table knights who don’t often get as much story time as they deserve. The creator of The Magicians has woven another spell.”
—George R. R. Martin, #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Game of Thrones

“A novel that is as much about the Matter of Britain as it is our own florid and layered imaginings of it. Breathlessly weaves themes of faith, duty, and selfhood with a classic sword-and-sorcery adventure—this is why we read fantasy.”
Ava Reid, #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Study in Drowning

“Once I picked this novel up, I could not stop reading. The Bright Sword is compulsively readable and expertly told. Lev Grossman transports the reader with such assurance and finesse. Just pick it up and lose yourself inside these pages. You won’t want to leave until the tale is done.”
—Victor LaValle, national bestselling author of Lone Women

“Satisfyingly epic but also fast-paced, this novel captures everything that’s grand and magnificent about the age of King Arthur while picking at its edges and delving into its darker depths. All fantasy and mythology fans will want to make time for this moving, entertaining epic. . . . This epic fantasy is sure to be a hit.”
—Booklist (starred review)

“Highly recommended for readers who can’t resist a story featuring brave knights, stalwart queens, and magic.”
—Library Journal (starred review)

“The story of King Arthur has been told and substantially altered many times over the centuries, and explored by a multitude of contemporary novelists, but the author of the Magicians trilogy makes room for himself here. . . . Very few writers have explored post-Arthurian Britain or focused quite so much on developing the stories of the minor characters in the saga. . . . A fresh take.”
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Praise for Lev Grossman’s Magicians Trilogy

The Magicians is to Harry Potter as a shot of Irish whiskey is to a glass of weak tea. Hogwarts was never like this.” 
—George R. R. Martin

The Magicians may just be the most subversive, gripping and enchanting fantasy novel I’ve read this century.” 
—Cory Doctorow

“Lev Grossman has conjured a rare creature: a trilogy that simply gets better and better as it goes along.”
—Erin Morgenstern

“The best fantasy trilogy of the decade.”
—Charles Stross

“Sad, hilarious, beautiful, and essential to anyone who cares about modern fantasy.”
—Joe Hill
