“The darkish faculty of magic I’ve been ready for.” Katherine Arden, writer of Winternight Trilogy
I made a decision that Orion Lake wanted to die after the second time he saved my life.
Everybody loves Orion Lake. Everybody else, that’s. Far as I’m involved, he can preserve his flashy fight magic to himself. I’m not becoming a member of his pack of adoring followers.
I don’t need assistance surviving the Scholomance, even when they do. Overlook the hordes of monsters and cursed artifacts, I’m in all probability probably the most harmful factor within the place. Simply give me an opportunity and I’ll degree mountains and kill untold hundreds of thousands, make myself the darkish queen of the world.
At the least, that’s what the world expects. Many of the different college students in right here could be delighted if Orion killed me like another evil factor that’s crawled out of the drains. Typically I believe they need me to show into the evil witch they assume I’m. The varsity definitely does.
However the Scholomance isn’t getting what it desires from me. And neither is Orion Lake. I will not be anybody’s thought of the shining hero, however I’m going to make it out of this place alive, and I’m not going to slaughter 1000’s to do it, both.
Though I’m giving severe consideration to only one.
With flawless mastery, Naomi Novik creates a faculty bursting with magic such as you’ve by no means seen earlier than, and a heroine for the ages—a character so sharply realized and so richly nuanced that she’s going to stay on in hearts and minds for generations to come back.
Reward for Lethal Training

“A must-read . . . Novik places a refreshingly darkish, grownup spin on the magical boarding faculty. . . . Readers will delight within the push-and-pull of El and Orion’s relationship, the fantastically detailed world, the intelligent magic system, and the matter-of-fact range of the scholar physique.”—Publishers Weekly (starred assessment)
