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)

***Hesitation***
I'm a long time fan of Naomi Novik's work. Temeraire is one of my all time favorites. Accidently I discovered that she was also one of my favourite fanfiction writers (I've deleted that information so I don't what name she uses).

I like Naomi as a person. She is one of those authors I actually trust that they want to be better. That if they hear some criticisms they will listen.

And yet... ugh mob mentality is a thing. I'm not on twitter. But if you only hear negative things it makes you less excited. I never not wanted to read this book, but it did get lower on my unofficial tbr list. So I was really glad to read Samantha's review in which she linked a review on A Naga of the Nusantara website's. It was a very nuanced review by someone who likes Novik's work.

But what warmed my heart the most was the tweet by Naomi Novik. Authors can't be perfect. Representation is very important and yes I want to see more characters like me in stories, but the authors who get published the most actually don't. But I refuse to think that authors don't want to learn. And until they say otherwise (and yes there are way too many who won't, shame) I will try to give them the benefit of the doubt.

I'm still a bit emotional after reading her tweet which didn't crushed that hope. It's good to see that my impression was correct.

Here's hoping I don't hate the story! That would be... urgh.

First off: There is a controversy surrounding this book. Some are saying that [a:Naomi Novik|8730|Naomi Novik|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1206646770p2/8730.jpg] was insensitive to certain ethnic groups. I am not going to let any of that be a part of this review.

Well, this is not what I expected. That is neither good nor bad. It is just very different from the authors former books. In that sense it reminded me of [b:Ninth House|43263680|Ninth House (Alex Stern #1)|Leigh Bardugo|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1553102141l/43263680._SY75_.jpg|53348200]. It made me wonder if publishing houses and editors had a meeting of the minds last year and encouraged their writers to get dark and gritty.

The Scholomance is a school for wizards which exists in a Void. It was built to protect the children of the many wizard enclaves. There are terrible monsters in the world that want to eat them for their mana. Unfortunate that those monsters have found ways into the school. When the school was originally built, only enclave children were admitted. When it was determined there was no keeping the monsters out, wizard children with no connection to enclaves began to be inducted. Giving the enclave children a better chance at survival.

Our protagonist, Galadriel, (yes her mother named her after The Lady of The Woods in LOTR)-is one of the unfortunate ones who is not enclave connected. She is in her 3rd year of school, friendless and angry at the world.

After finishing the book I read some reviews to see if what irked me, irked others. Could not find one other reviewer that thought the writing of this character was a bit over the top. She is a teenager, and sometimes when teenagers talk they go on and on and on .... This happens repeatedly in this story, so much that some sentences were paragraphs long. Enough to make me want to strangle this child. Perhaps that is what [a: Novik|8730|Naomi Novik|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1206646770p2/8730.jpg] was going for. It really irritated me enough to just stop reading at points. Other reviewers were irritated that El (this is her shortened name) did not grow through out the story. That really did not bother me, as this a trilogy and book 2 will be Senior year, she has time for that.

All of the above being taken into consideration, it is still a pretty good story. A new different world, and a lot of characters that have potential and that I really grew to like.

I will give it the 4 stars and I will read book 2. ( )

What a treat! This isn't magic school trope. It feels more like The Call then Rowling. Great round characters and intricate multifaceted relationships. Incredible world building. I'm so ready for the next book. ( )

Cool world building, somewhat gritty. Much closer to the ya border than I've read in a while, which is fine but all the characters were a little flat. It's not that much fun when the two main characters are so overpowered so the two climaxes just sort of happen and then fall away. It was so unabashedly concise there and so lengthy other places that it must have been on purpose, I guess the action wasn't the purpose of the book.

I'm not even sure there was much character growth, she just started having friends even though she didn't change much ( )

I mean, in general the wizardly boarding school setting was already a bit of a cliché even when Ursula Le Guin did it, never mind J.K. Rowling. But Novik takes a couple of interesting new turns. First, the school is infested by evil magical creatures which in a normal year eat or otherwise kill a large percentage of the students. Second, our protagonist is deeply cynical, rude to everyone, and doesn't even try to be a good girl, just alive. Third, the brutal outworkings of the class system in determining who lives and who dies are a crucial element of the plot. On top of this there's the usual plot of classroom politics and teenage angst, and one slightly wonders about all the parents who send their kids to a boarding school where their chances of survival are so low, but I liked it a lot.

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.
