Synopsis

_______________________________________

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.



'Hilarious and wild! Take any fictional magic school, make it as over-the-top dangerous as possible, and populate it with a bunch of snarky teenagers; the result is pure batshit fun.'

N.K. Jemisin, three-time Hugo Award winner and author of The Fifth Season



'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, Sunday Times bestselling 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, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Bear and the Nightingale



'The wonderful cast of characters will grab a hold of your heart and you'll never want to leave this deadly school ... a fantasy that delights on every level. I loved this brilliant book.'

Stephanie Garber, #1 Sunday Times bestselling author of the Caraval series



'Eyeball-meltingly brilliant. Novik is, quite simply, a genius.'

Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of And I Darken



'Sharp, witty, and darkly effervescent, A Deadly Education is Naomi Novik's fresh take on the concept of the magic school. One of my favorite reads of the year.'

Rory Power, New York Times bestselling author of Wilder Girls



'Friendship in spite of itself; danger that doesn't quit-what a wildly magical ride!'

Tamora Pierce



'A Deadly Education is a book that lives up to its gobsmacker of an opening sentence ... Naomi Novik is relentlessly innovative and entertaining.'

Terry Brooks



'Naomi Novik reinvents the magical school story by working a strange, funny, wild, dark magic all her own. This is not just your next great read - it's your new obsession.'

Gwenda Bond



'A delightfully brutal world ... and a practical, ruthless heroine with the guts and wits to survive it.'

Emily Skrutskie



'Fresh, smart, and delightfully unique. It's Hogwarts with higher stakes and sharper claws, and I absolutely loved it.'

Alix E. Harrow
