The Magicians, by Lev Grossman

Imagine a Harry Potter novel written with a Brooklyn, New York point of view, and you have some of this novel.  The characters are flawed in a deeper way than the superficial good or bad guys of a children's book.  And there are no happy endings here.   But it is a very interesting read with great characters, great plot, and a grittiness that I find appealing.

But if you're looking for a Narnia adventure, then put this novel down right now.
