Waterstones Says

Set in an austere school for the magically gifted, A Deadly Education weaves together sorcery, monsters and humour into an intoxicating literary brew.

In the start of an all-new series, the bestselling author of Uprooted and Spinning Silver introduces you to a dangerous school for the magically gifted where failure means certain death - until one girl begins to rewrite its rules.

Enter a school of magic unlike any you have ever encountered.

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 Higgins is uniquely prepared for the school's many dangers. She may be without allies, but she possesses a dark power strong enough to level mountains and wipe out untold millions - never mind easily destroy the countless monsters that prowl the school.

Except, she might accidentally kill all the other students, too. So El is trying her hardest not to use it... that is, unless she has no other choice.

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"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, author of The Mercies

"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, author of The Bear and the Nightingale

"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 humour with layers of imagination to build a fantasy that delights on every level. I loved this brilliant book." - Stephanie Garber, author of the Caraval series

“Original and inventive from one of the best.”

I’m a huge fan of Naomi Novik and this book did not disappoint. This is such an interesting take on the idea of a magic school and Novik pulls the rug out from underneath you at every possible turn. I fell in love... More

“Had to finish in one sitting!”

Uprooted may be my favourite book by Novik but this is a very close 2nd and one that I know I will enjoy again and again. I love the character El that is sassy, violent and trying to stay as untainted as humanly... More

“4.5 stars of wonderful, dark magic hilarity”

I’m a bit dithery over that rating, take it as 4.25 if that helps! I just about devoured this book whenever I could and it made for tasty reading. The Scholomance was a school like you’ve never imagined, a school... More
