I REALLY enjoyed this one. It’s the best read I’ve had in a while actually. The premise is your typical ‘teenager goes off to magic school to learn magic’ trope…only with a bit of a twist. The school is nominally a place to keep young people with magic safer, only creatures within it are regularly out to get them/eat them/swallow them whole etc. There are no teachers and it’s a bit like Hunger Games inside Hogwarts. It’s cleverly written and so much fun!! And to top it off the main character El is just a brilliant, nuanced character. ⭐⭐⭐⭐ from me

QOTD: Do you love a good magic school fantasy?? I admit I do, especially when it’s done well.
