One could write that The Magicians is a coming-of-age novel set in a sort of university for magicians.  It is that, but so much more.  The book follows Quentin Coldwater and several of his fellow aspiring magicians through several stages of their lives, finally achieving a dream and then finding that even then, all their desires are not fulfilled.
