From the New York Times bestselling author of Uprooted and Spinning Silver comes the story of an unwilling dark sorceress who is destined to rewrite the rules of magic. 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 I'm concerned, he can keep his flashy combat magic to himself. I'm not joining his pack of adoring fans. I don't need help surviving the Scholomance, even if they do. Forget the hordes of monsters and cursed artifacts, I'm probably the most dangerous thing in the place. Just give me a chance and I'll level mountains and kill untold millions, make myself the dark queen of the world. At least, that's what the world expects me to do. Most of the other students in here would be delighted if Orion killed me like one more evil thing that's crawled out of the drains. Sometimes I think they want me to turn into the evil witch they assume I am. The school itself certainly does. But the Scholomance isn't getting what it wants from me. And neither is Orion Lake. I may not be anyone's idea of the shining hero, but I'm going to make it out of this place alive, and I'm not going to slaughter thousands to do it, either. Although I'm giving serious consideration to just one. With flawless mastery, Naomi Novik creates 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.… (mere)

Absolutely delightful. The story was so engaging that the romantic aspect didn't take up too much time or space, until just the right moment. And the ending! *chef kiss* ( )

Novik has done it again - a fascinating story, with complex, intriguing characters...in yet another type of world. Not a fairy tale, not alternate history...urban fantasy, maybe? Outside the school, apparently, there are wizards and ordinary people and the latter don't see magic at all. Inside the school - the only place we actually see in this book - everyone is a wizard, of varying ability. This is no Hogwarts, though - the place itself is magic, and learning happens without any teachers. And students die, when monsters, or other students, attack them. Galadriel (El) is an extremely powerful wizard with an affinity for mass destruction; she's working hard, all the time, not to go dark (if only because that's a quick death sentence). Orion is a powerful wizard with an affinity for killing monsters ("mals"); he's spent all his life saving people from them. When they start working together, they find an unexpected friendship growing up - complicated by the rules and customs of the Scholomance. It's a great story, on a lot of levels - the world, the people (more than El and Orion), the challenges, everything. I usually dislike stories of manipulators. Here, El is sometimes trying to manipulate things - but more often, she is manipulated by circumstance, or others don't think the way she's trying to manipulate them into thinking (more realistic, too). The only problem with this book is that it ends on a cliffhanger. The current problem is solved...probably...but a new one has arisen, and the book ends. The next one is out later this year...I'm eagerly awaiting it. ( )

A book about a magical educational facility where the twist is the place is extremely likely to kill you—but only a fraction as likely as the world outside its walls. In this school, there are no teachers and no guardians, and for our bad-aura-radiating main character, El, no friends; nothing to stop her from being offed by some horrible monster or a serial-killing, dark-magic-using fellow student other than her own wits and reflexes. Add in broken monster-cleaning machinery; a handsome, overpowered, monster-death powered classmate; and a prophecy of a future of societal desctruction, and you've got a magical recipe for awesome disaster. The first-person, stream-of-consciousness narration, full of some quite long clauses, will put off some readers, but the story is fantastic. ( )

pg. 30 -- This world sounds tiring AF. One of the few worlds I won't want to be in.

This is a magic school novel with a difference. There are no teachers and the school is an enormous machine inhabited by monsters and has no intention of letting most of its students get out alive. El is an outsider, irritable and resentful and trying to figure out how to make alliances that will help her survive graduation. Orion Lake keeps saving her life and she's had it up to *here* with that.

it's too easy to call people evil instead of their choices, and that lets people justify making evil choices, because they convince themselves that it's okay because they're still good people overall, inside their own heads.
