NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - 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 Ive 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 Im concerned, he can keep his flashy combat magic to himself. Im not joining his pack of adoring fans.

I dont need help surviving the Scholomance, even if they do. Forget the hordes of monsters and cursed artifacts, Im probably the most dangerous thing in the place. Just give me a chance and Ill level mountains and kill untold millions, make myself the dark queen of the world.

At least, thats what the world expects. Most of the other students in here would be delighted if Orion killed me like one more evil thing thats 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 isnt getting what it wants from me. And neither is Orion Lake. I may not be anyones idea of the shining hero, but Im going to make it out of this place alive, and Im not going to slaughter thousands to do it, either.

Although Im giving serious consideration to just one.

With flawless mastery, Naomi Novik creates a school bursting with magic like youve 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 cant-miss fantasy of fall 2020, a brutal coming-of-power story steeped in the aesthetics of dark academia. . . . A Deadly Education will cement Naomi Noviks 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 Orions relationship, the fantastically detailed world, the clever magic system, and the matter-of-fact diversity of the student body."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
