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.… (mais)

This is the kind of book that I live for. Even when I get multiple books in a row that aren't working for me. I continue on knowing that there are books like this for me out there. It was that good. A six-star book if that was possible. It took me a while to read, but not because it was boring or hard to read, but because I purposely paced myself not wanting it to end. I have a feeling I might be riding a book hangover for a while.

I would have defined this book as evil Hogwarts, where the hero isn't the main character. It has got some swearing and I wouldn't recommend it for younger teens and under. Maybe 15 and up? I did love this book so much though and I plan to buy a copy soon as well as buy every book in the series as it comes out. Only a few books have made this special list so it really is in a honor lol.

Wow - Naomi Novik knows how to worldbuild. She is a master of creating the most in depth, unique, and exciting fantasies. Admittedly, A Deadly Education drops readers right into the thick of it at the beginning of the book - and it takes a chapter or two to begin to understand the dangerous world that Galadriel is in. Galadriel is a teenage sorceress and she's only got one more year to go before she can hopefully graduate from the Scholomance, a school in the void that magic users from all over the world attend. It's a dark academy with no teachers, only creatures that lay wait for unsuspecting students. Far less than half the students make it to graduation - even less make it across the graduation hall to rejoin the world. Orion Lake has a bad habit of playing hero and he's saved Galadriel's life more than once now. But Galadriel doesn't want a savior - she just wants to make it out alive on her terms - she's not trying to make friends (which is good because she would be awful at it). Filled with a sprinkling of teenage drama, a load of big bad beasties, and lots of wonderful world building. I can't wait to read the next book in the series! ( )

fantasy fiction - teen/adult (magical monsters and lots of action, with an intriguing class/power dynamic)

The "school"/fortress and its inhabitants are entrancing, and you won't want to tear your eyes away from this book (lest the rice pudding comes to life and tries to devour the protagonist--it seems that dangerous wizard-eating monsters literally lurk in every corner). This is one you'll want to stay up late reading, even though you really ought to go to sleep, and your hands are starting to cramp from holding the book so tightly. ( )

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* ( )

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.
