This audiobook is a contemporary fantasy in which magic is real—and so are the monsters who are drawn to it. Hunted by these creatures, young magic users attend Scholomance, the only place they can go to learn the skills they need to survive. But those who don’t learn quickly or form alliances soon pay the ultimate price. El has all these obstacles and more. She comes across as a very put-upon character, a trait that narrator Anisha Dadia highlights with just the right amount of exasperation and sarcasm. Dadia adeptly conveys the story, matching Novik’s conversational writing style. With danger at every turn, the plot soon escalates to showcase El’s ultimate fight for survival. Who has time for homework, anyway? N.H. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2020]
