Naomi Novik has done it again with her new series that is a Harry Potter/ Ninth House chimaera!
A DEADLY EDUCATION follows Galadriel, a.k.a. El, as she tries to survive as a loner at a notoriously deadly magic school and fights her natural affinity for powerful dark magic. However, her social sphere is changed forever when she is the unfortunate recipient of Chosen One Orion Lake’s attention after he saves her from one of the maleficaries that lurk around every corner, plotting to devour every student they can get their tentacles on.
This book balances danger and humor on a knife’s edge, with snark and sarcasm and terrifying monsters who feast on the flesh and souls of freshman wizards. With a diverse cast and a cutting dialogue on class and privilege, A DEADLY EDUCATION aims to show the dark side of Hogwarts and put the spotlight on a biracial multilingual girl who is shockingly powerful.
