The acclaimed New York Times-bestselling author Naomi Novik releases her new book tomorrow.
A Deadly Education is the first book of the Scholomance trilogy, where learning has become truly deadly. This young adult fantasy novel puts an interesting spin on the traditional “hero goes to magic school” concept and has been described as a twisted, super dark, super modern, female-led Harry Potter novel.
Lesson One of the Scholomance
Learning has never been this deadly
A Deadly Education is set at Scholomance, a school for the magically gifted where failure means certain death (for real) — until one girl, El, begins to unlock its many secrets. There are no teachers, no holidays, and no friendships, save strategic ones. Survival is more important than any letter grade, for the school won’t allow its students to leave until they graduate… or die! The rules are deceptively simple: Don’t walk the halls alone. And beware of the monsters who lurk everywhere. El is uniquely prepared for the school’s dangers. She may be without allies, but she possesses a dark power strong enough to level mountains and wipe out millions. It would be easy enough for El to defeat the monsters that prowl the school. The problem? Her powerful dark magic might also kill all the other students.
A Deadly Education is due to come out tomorrow, September 29th, 2020, published by Del Rey Books.
