Should satisfy Novik’s many fans and appeal to mature fans of Harry Potter, dark-fantasy lovers, and those who enjoyed Lev Grossman’s The Magicians.

The Golden Enclaves

Novik’s third “Scholomance” book is a strong and satisfying finish to an exciting fantasy series.

The Last Graduate

Sardonic students, gruesome monsters, growing friendships, and a touch of romance create a highly readable story. Some questions remain to be answered in the trilogy’s last volume. The end of this installment ensures that book three can’t come fast enough.

A Deadly Education

This latest from Novik (“Temeraire” series) launches a new series that should appeal to aficionados of fantastical fiction as well as to those who have felt they never quite fit in and don’t understand why. The magic and mystery of this chillingly lovely novel will appeal to both YA and adult fans of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books. [See Prepub Alert, 3/18/20.]

Spinning Silver

This masterly, immersive high fantasy tale is grounded in real-world challenges and opportunities for growth. Highly recommended for fans of Novik's previous titles or fairy-tale retellings.

Golden Age and Other Stories

This illustrated collection, which can serve as a stand-alone or as a companion volume for readers of military fantasy and dragon fiction, will bring joy to the series' many admirers.

League of Dragons

This series finale would not be complete without visits from familiar figures from previous books (Her Majesty's Dragon; Blood of Tyrants) and plenty of battle scenes. Novik's fans won't be disappointed.


This exceptional fantasy for adult and teen readers should appeal to those who love fairy tale-influenced stories such as Robin McKinley's Spindle's End. [Five-city tour; library marketing.]
