#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER • 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.

ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: Paste, Publishers Weekly

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.


  • Phenomenal!!!

    By Monasaderskincare
    The absolute best read❣️
  • Where is Chloe?

    By sotomiller
    I loved everything about this book and devoured it in just a few days. Naomi Novik has vast imagination and does an amazing job of almost over-explaining everything. My only question is what happened to Chloe? She was such a big part of the previous book and then only appeared in one chapter of this book, even when El’s friends were coming to help her.
  • Excellent ending

    By buddybru
    Loved the series. It was entertaining.
  • A deeply satisfying ending to a mesmerizing trilogy

    By Book Grrrl
    A brilliant ending to one of the most creative storylines ever. It's not just the story that will entrance you, either - it's the characters and their relationships that will make you cry and bring you to cheers, and yes, even sometimes laugh.
  • not what I was hoping for

    The third was the weakest of the three.
  • Amazing

    By Hoffmanmw
    Naomi Novik is my favorite author. I have loved all of her books and this absolutely lives up to her legacy. It was a beautiful ending to the trilogy. I love the characters and the magical world she created. I felt satisfied while still wishing there were more books in the world to come! And I will immediately listen to the audiobook version as well because they are also wonderful!
  • Excellent conclusion to a great series!

    By EllBlazer2019
    I’ve enjoyed everything of Novik’s I’ve read so far, and this is no exception. Tightly plotted, no pacing issues, and an immensely satisfying conclusion with quite relevant allegories about the world we live in today. I look forward to whatever she’s brewing up next (hopefully another Eastern European inspired fairy tale!)
  • Just finished this

    I got to read the ARC. This has been an enjoyable if not fun! series to read. If you’re the sort to wait for a series to finish before you start it this one is well written but you should be warned it’s quite grim and the magic mostly involves screaming nightmares. Not a lighthearted series!
