    Description

    New York Times Best Seller

    From the author of Uprooted and Spinning Silver comes the first book of the Scholomance trilogy, the story of an unwilling dark sorceress who is destined to rewrite the rules of magic.

    Finalist for The Lodestar Award

    "The dark school of magic I’ve been waiting for.” (Katherine Arden, author of Winternight Trilogy)

    I decided that Orion Lake needed to die after the second time he saved my life.

    Everyone loves Orion Lake. Everyone else, that is. Far as I’m concerned, he can keep his flashy combat magic to himself. I’m not joining his pack of adoring fans.

    I don’t need help surviving the Scholomance, even if they do. Forget the hordes of monsters and cursed artifacts, I’m probably the most dangerous thing in the place. Just give me a chance and I’ll level mountains and kill untold millions, make myself the dark queen of the world.

    At least, that’s what the world expects. Most of the other students in here would be delighted if Orion killed me like one more evil thing that’s crawled out of the drains. Sometimes I think they want me to turn into the evil witch they assume I am. The school certainly does.

    But the Scholomance isn’t getting what it wants from me. And neither is Orion Lake. I may not be anyone’s idea of the shining hero, but I’m going to make it out of this place alive, and I’m not going to slaughter thousands to do it, either.

    Although I’m giving serious consideration to just one.

    With flawless mastery, Naomi Novik creates a school bursting with magic like you’ve never seen before, and a heroine for the ages - a character so sharply realized and so richly nuanced that she will live on in hearts and minds for generations to come.

    The magic of the Scholomance trilogy continues in The Last Graduate

    “The can’t-miss fantasy of fall 2020, a brutal coming-of-power story steeped in the aesthetics of dark academia.... A Deadly Education will cement Naomi Novik’s place as one of the greatest and most versatile fantasy writers of our time.” (BookPage, starred review)

    “A must-read... Novik puts a refreshingly dark, adult spin on the magical boarding school.... Readers will delight in the push-and-pull of El and Orion’s relationship, the fantastically detailed world, the clever magic system, and the matter-of-fact diversity of the student body.” (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

    Commentaires

    “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, New York Times best-selling author of The Bear and the Nightingale)

    “Eyeball-meltingly brilliant...Novik is, quite simply, a genius.” (Kiersten White, New York Times best-selling author of And I Darken)

    “At the Scholomance, monsters are everywhere and the breakfast might kill you, but the wonderful cast of characters will grab ahold 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, number-one New York Times best-selling author of the Caraval series)

    Intersting concept, way too much self pity

    I was very excited to read another book by Naomi Novik, as I absolutely loved Uprooted and Spinning Silver. However, once I realized I was 2 hours in to this one and nothing had happened beyond a few monster attacks and the main character whining about how hard her life is, my enthusiasm waned. I love stories about underdogs just as much as the next person, but when the underdog is constantly comparing everything they have to everything everyone else has and feeling sorry for themselves *all the time*, it gets old. The main character is also blessed with amazing insights into other people's thought processes, allowing her to look past people's seemingly kind actions to herself and others and see them for the greedy attempts at manipulation that they invariably are. I kept waiting for someone to explain to her that the reason she didn't have any friends wasn't really because she has a bad aura or whatever, but because she's an absolute jerk to everyone. Then she could have slowly realized it was true and changed her ways, though of course keeping much of her snarky nature. But no one did, and she didn't. She is a bit nicer by the end of the book, and will probably improve further with the next one, but the revelation about the way she treats people never came.
    After all that it may sound like I hated this book. I didn't, although I found much of it very tiresome. Once things actually start happening and there is a plot to follow I would say it's a decent book, with a lot of really cool concepts and fun ideas. I wanted more when it ended, things were just starting to become really interesting. I just hope in the next book there is more plot and a lot less self pity.

    Conflicted about canceling JK Rowling? No worries, this is better.

    Novik is queen of the remake/ upgrade.

    In the way her dragon series remade Horatio Hornblower, this book is Hogwarts cleared of all the useless teachers and an extra level of danger added. Boring Harry has been sidelined to make room for a much more interesting heroine with a deeper and funnier inner life.

    This is the escape to the high school from hell read we all need in 2020.

    Fully realized, completely engaging, unexpected protagonist

    And she’s mixed race, good (but it’s a struggle) and never saccharine. Naomi Novik is a master storyteller and while some of the tropes are familiar, they are made fresh by her characters. The narrator is absolutely pitch perfect.

    Edgy Teen Girl goes to Magical HighSchool

    The story wasn’t my type of thing. A lot of teen drama and cliques, great performance though.

    Not your average YA

    This series is YA in the same way The Hunger Games is YA: teenage protagonist but deadly stakes. Yes, there’s a focus on cliques and interpersonal drama, but in this world being part of a strong clique means you have a better chance of not getting eaten by monsters, so it’s just not the same as your average petty teenage gossip.

    Here’s the thing that will be make or break for a lot of readers: one of the themes of this series is privilege. The school is basically a war zone and all the kids are trying to survive, but the kids with resources and connections have a much better chance at survival. The story is told from the perspective of a Have Not who openly resents the Haves. Some reviewers seem to interpret this as making the main character whiny, but I think this story will resonate with a lot of people.

    The narration was pretty good too. There were a few places where I thought the flow was a little off – like a verbal comma in the wrong place – but it really was in only a couple of places and overall the tone of the narration seemed just right for the voice of the main character: acerbic and dryly witty.

    I love this book and I am so looking forward to the next in the series. The main character is complex and cynical and intentionally a little hard to like at first, but she reveals herself to be absolutely amazing. There are strong supporting characters and plenty of action. Overall, just a really great listen.

    Another home run from Naomi Novik

    I found Naomi Novik through her marvellous Temeraire series and was pleased to find she had tried her hand at the well-trodden Magic School genre. But she does something new and fresh with it, and every minute is enjoyable. Novik builds an intriguing world - I am so glad this is a series because I want to know ALL about it and I have so many unanswered questions - and our heroine is smart, cynical, and wrong in all the right ways from moment one. (Those who liked Sarah Rees Brennan’s In Other Lands will definitely want to give A Deadly Education a go.) Going with El as she puzzled through problems, yells at everyone, and tries assiduously to survive school, is a great ride, and Anisha Dadia’s reading brings her to life. I can’t wait for book 2; till then, I am listening to A Deadly Education all over again.

    Very weak showing by a fantastic author

    This book could have benefitted from some much better editing. As it is, it's a jumble of stream-of-consciousness style with bits of plot scattered throughout. I was not impressed by the repetitive nature of the storytelling (just count the number of times the narrator describes what a Malificer is, for example). Nor was I impressed by the compulsion to tell rather than show everything about the school or most characters outside the action of the narrow scope of this first-person narrative.

    When I heard this book was the first of a duology, it made sense because it does feel very stretched and verbose for what was mostly world building with some interesting action at the end.

    too much explaining

    too much explaining at places where it shouldn't be, also nothing ever happens (things DO happen but it's very random and the plot is non-existent) so I dnf'd it

    A unique take on YA

    A unique combination of wizard school and battle royal young adult books. A young magic girl goes to a magic school run by social media algorithms that has gone bad (and no adults or teachers), and as a result everything in the magic school tries to kill the students, and she must survive all the monsters and her fellow students.

    The first few hours come off a bit too whiny and the protagonist too weak or unreliable, but it gets better later.

    Hmmm

    Leider bin ich ein bisschen enttäuscht!
    Die ersten 2-3 Stunden waren ziemlich langatmig und für mich ein bisschen zu „weinerlich“.
    Nach und nach wurde es etwas interessanter.
    Vllt. bin ich zu verwöhnt (Katherine Arden, Patrick Rothfuss usw.)
    Den 2. Teil werde ich mir dennoch kaufen bzw. anhören.

    Love Naomi Novik and Anisha Dadia

    I’ve only recently discover Naomi Novik and love everyone of her stories! It’s amazing how much detail and creativity you can find in her stories! And this one is sassy and fantastical, a great and fun read. Anisha Dadia is amazing in how she creates so many different characters and portraits the character of each and everyone of them so fittingly in just the right tone of her voice. Love it.

    Truly Fantastic

    Absolutely amazingly read and written, went through it in a couple of days and now I‘m too sad to think about it. Can‘t wait for the second book to come out in autumn!
