Ten wickedly great books about witches

One title on Entertainment Weekly's list of ten wickedly great books about witches:
The Magicians, Lev Grossman

Magic can do a lot of things. It can summon beasts, cast illusions, and make objects vanish. But it can’t cure the malaise of young adulthood, as Grossman’s wizards and witches-in-training discover here.
Read about the other books on the list.

The Magicians is among Jason Diamond's top fifty books that define the past five years in literature and Joel Cunningham's eight great books for fans of Donna Tartt's The Secret History.
