The Last Graduate

TikTok made me read it

Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Return to the Scholomance - a school of magic unlike any you have ever encountered - in the stunning sequel to the Sunday Times bestselling A Deadly Education, the start of Naomi Novik's ground-breaking crossover series.

There are no teachers, no holidays, friendships are purely strategic, and the odds of survival are never equal.
Once you're inside, there are only two ways out: you graduate or you die.

El, Orion, and the other students are faced with their final year - and the looming spectre of graduation. El is determined that her chosen group will survive, but it is a prospect that is looking harder by the day as the savagery of the school ramps up. Until El realizes that sometimes winning the game means throwing out all the rules. . .

Wry, witty, endlessly inventive, and mordantly funny - yet with a true depth and fierce justice at its heart - this enchanting novel reminds us that there are far more important things than mere survival.
