Publisher's Summary

Saving the world is a test no school of magic can prepare you for in the triumphant conclusion to the New York Times bestselling trilogy that began with A Deadly Education and The Last Graduate.

The one thing you never talk about while you’re in the Scholomance is what you’ll do when you get out. Not even the richest enclaver would tempt fate that way. But it’s all we dream about: the hideously slim chance we’ll survive to make it out the gates and improbably find ourselves with a life ahead of us, a life outside the Scholomance halls.

And now the impossible dream has come true. I’m out, we’re all out—and I didn’t even have to turn into a monstrous dark witch to make it happen. So much for my great-grandmother’s prophecy of doom and destruction. I didn’t kill enclavers, I saved them. Me and Orion and our allies. Our graduation plan worked to perfection: We saved everyone and made the world safe for all wizards and brought peace and harmony to all the enclaves everywhere.

Ha, only joking! Actually, it’s gone all wrong. Someone else has picked up the project of destroying enclaves in my stead, and probably everyone we saved is about to get killed in the brewing enclave war. And the first thing I’ve got to do now, having miraculously gotten out of the Scholomance, is turn straight around and find a way back in.

A good story ruined by a fling

The fact there's a fling in the middle ruins it. A week of mourning isn't enough to justify that behavior, especially when it's well established that he's powerful on an insane scale.

Narrator did awesome

But I'm SO dissapointed.

Absolutely stunning

Naomi Novik is one of the best authors in fantasy right now. This absolutely stunning conclusion to the Scholomance series manages to entertain and enthrall while being a compelling metaphor about education inequality and climate change. This tore my heart out and put it back together and was worth the two full years of anxiously waiting. I will read anything this woman writes

Anisha Dadia once again perfectly encapsulates the character of El and brings the story to life. I will also listen to anything she narrates

I'm going to fist fight Naomi Novik

EXCELLENT AS ALWAYS YOU MONSTER, gotta make me cry at work with all the emotional turmoil in this dang book. I've read all of her books and they always do this to me.

Earth shattering conclusion to the trilogy.

Laugh. Cry. Laugh while crying. This is an absolutely wild ride.

a delightful finish

a delightful finish to a great trilogy. I honestly can't recommend this series enough. I don't want to give any spoilers, so I'll avoid specifics. it's was a thrill from start to finish, with multiple compelling villains, excellent character development, and every subplot tying beautifully into the main storyline.

Worth the wait

This was worth every day of waiting for it to come out! I loved it. I’m sad it’s over but I’m excited to reread the series with the knowledge gained from this one. One of my favorite series, one of my favorite authors!

Amazing!

Loved this book, it’s everything you want and more from the Scholomance world. Very satisfying ending, and full of all the characters you loved in the first two.

Mysteries solved, but too much going on

I was anxious to find out what happened to Orion in the last graduate so I could not put this book down. It did not take long to figure it out, but El seems to be impossibly slow at making important connections. There is also a casual fling thrown in that hardly seems necessary. A few characters from prior books redeem themselves in the end which should make for a good fairytale, but comes out of nowhere. The narrator does a good job with female voices, but her Orion voice is grating. I can't tell if it is the New York "accent" or trying to make him sound youthful, but I do not like it. Fortunately he does not do much talking.

A great conclusion with no cliffhanger

This book is an amazing wrap up to all the questions raised previously. It addresses much of the issues we have seen previously.
