Return to the Scholomance - and face an even deadlier graduation - in the stunning sequel to the ground-breaking, Sunday Times bestselling A Deadly Education.
The dark school of magic has always done its best to devour its students, but now that El has reached her final year - and somehow won herself a handful of allies along the way - it’s suddenly developed a very particular craving . . .
As the savagery of the school ramps up, El is determined that she will not give in - not to the mals, not to fate, and especially not to the Scholomance. But as the spectre of graduation looms - a deadly final ritual that leaves few students alive - if she and her allies are to make it out, El will need to realise 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.
