Editorial Reviews

Review

“I loved this book. It’s such a nail-biter, it’s funny, it’s thought-provoking, and it’s such a good read.”BuzzFeed

“Novik deliciously undoes expectations about magic schools, destined heroes, and family legacies. A gorgeous book about monsters and monstrousness, chockablock with action, cleverness, and wit.”
—Holly Black, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“At the Scholomance, monsters are everywhere and the breakfast might kill you, but the wonderful cast of characters will grab ahold of your heart and you’ll never want to leave this deadly school. Naomi Novik skillfully combines sharp humor with layers of imagination to build a fantasy that delights on every level. I loved this brilliant book.”
—Stephanie Garber, #1 New York 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

“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, New York Times bestselling author of The City We Became

A Deadly Education is a nightmare from which I never wished to wake: savage, inventive, and soulful. Novik grasps the totems of childhood that linger in your mind—schools of magic, curses, cutthroat classmates, monsters—only to twist them into a grand new tale that’ll make you believe in magic again.”—Pierce Brown, New York Times bestselling author of Dark Age

A Deadly Education is a book that lives up to its gobsmacker of an opening sentence and follows right through to its shocker of an ending that promises more to come. Naomi Novik is relentlessly innovative and entertaining.”—Terry Brooks, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Druid

“Friendship in spite of itself; danger that doesn’t quit—what a wildly magical ride!”
—Tamora Pierce, New York Times bestselling author of Tempests and Slaughter

“The magic and mystery of this chillingly lovely novel will appeal to both YA and adult fans of J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books. . . . An unresolved ending leaves readers eager for the next installment.”—Library Journal (starred review)

Amazon.com Review


Editors' pick: Novik is clearly having a great deal of fun even as she thoughtfully tackles trauma, privilege, loneliness, and true friendship."—Adrian Liang, Amazon Editor
