Product description


The Scholomance is the dark school of magic I’ve been waiting for, and its wise, witty, and monstrous heroine is one I'd happily follow anywhere―even into a school full of monsters. -- KATHERINE ARDEN

Sharp as a fang, funny and ruthless, this still manages to conjure up powerful observations about friendship, exclusion and privilege.DAILY MAIL

From the author of Spinning Silver comes a story set in an austere school for the magically gifted which houses unfathomable secrets and dark challenges for its students. Weaving together suspicion, danger, sorcery, monsters and humour, A Deadly Education is a magnificent return to form from Naomi Novik. ― WATERSTONES

Eyeball-meltingly brilliant. Novik is, quite simply, a genius. -- KIERSTEN WHITE

A Deadly Education is a nightmare from which I never wished to wake. Savage, inventive, and soulful, Novik grasps the totems of childhood that linger in your mind-schools of magic, curses, cutthroat classmates, monsters-only to twist them into a grand new tale that'll make you believe in magic again.

A dark, smart, delicious tale, set to redefine everything you think you know about schools for magic. A Deadly Education is dangerously addictive.KIRAN MILLWOOD HARGRAVE

At Scholomance, monsters are everywhere and the breakfast might kill you, but the wonderful cast of characters will grab a hold of your heart and you’ll never want to leave this deadly school. Naomi Novik skillfully combines sharp humor with layers of imagination to build a fantasy that delights on every level. I loved this brilliant book. -- STEPHANIE GARBER

Hilarious and wild! Take any fictional magic school, make it as over-the-top dangerous as possible, and populate it with a bunch of snarky teenagers; the result is pure batshit fun. -- N. K. JEMISIN

Sharp, witty, and darkly effervescent, A Deadly Education is Naomi Novik’s fresh take on the concept of the magic school. One of my favorite reads of the year. -- RORY POWER

A Deadly Education plunges into the delightfully brutal world of the Scholomance, a magic school unlike anything you've ever seen before, and introduces El, a practical, ruthless heroine with the guts and wits to survive it. Naomi Novik has crafted a transcendent academic fantasy that pulls no punches.EMILY SKRUTSKIE

5.0 out of 5 stars Freaking cool
By Autumn Melody on 11 December 2020
This was a perfectly good book. The protagonist is half-Indian, half-British so there's a bunch of Indian things thrown into the story that were fun to read.

---Minor spoilers in review---

• We had the soft boy/snarky girl trope in this and I loved it. It was hilarious! 😘

• There's a lot of info dumping but I enjoyed the way it was written as El mentions little stories of her experiences that made it fun.

• "Galadriel, from Lord of the Rings?" 😂😂

• The plot was really cool. I enjoyed reading about all the various types of crap that made no sense. The magic system made no sense but I enjoyed it. 50% in I wasn't sure what a Mal was lol.

Even the damn rotating school was weirdly fun.

• The Maw-mouth chapter was awesome!!

• Orion was a great character. Loved him! Loved the banter between him and El a lot.

• The friendship between El, Aadhya and Liu was nicely written. Loved the feast they cooked in their room. Also, the discussion they had after the Graduation Horde chapter in El's room was hilarious 😂

• The conclusion was cool. The last fight was nicely done. Overall, it was a very enjoyable read.

(El is an unreliable narrator so take everything that she tells with a grain of salt. She's portrayed as a flawed character so her descriptions of people might be a bit lacking and one directional. She describes everybody based on their language as she's majoring in the Languages track. Lol 😆 she needs better human interaction to see beyond that).
