Return to the Scholomance; a school of magic unlike any you have ever encountered, in the stunning sequel to the Sunday Times best-selling A Deadly Education, the start of Naomi Novik’s ground-breaking crossover series.
There are no teachers, no holidays, friendships are purely strategic, and the odds of survival are never equal. Once you’re inside, there are only two ways out: you graduate or you die.
El, Orion, and the other students are faced with their final year and the looming spectre of graduation. El is determined that her chosen group will survive, but it is a prospect that is looking harder by the day as the savagery of the school ramps up. Until El realizes that sometimes winning the game means throwing out all the rules…
Wry, witty, endlessly inventive, and mordantly funny - yet with a true depth and fierce justice at its heart, this enchanting novel reminds us that there are far more important things than mere survival.
