A bit of fun for those of you going back to school or college soon – or are parents of those who are!
Here’s my top 5 Fantasy Fiction novels featuring school or college!
The Magicians by Lev Grossman
US Liberal Arts College for wizards – a bit like a grown-up Harry Potter.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J. K. Rowling
Did we mention Harry Potter – English boarding school for wizards!
The Magicians’ Guild by Trudi Canavan
A guild for magicians, but in essence a college where they learn their stuff.
Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett
The girls try to break into the wizards’ University!
The Shadow of the Torturer by Gene Wolfe
Not a school or College for wizards at last. The narrator of Wolfe’s book starts off in a Guild for Torturer’s where he is learning his trade.
