    *Starred Review* After helping the entire senior class get out alive (A Deadly Education, 2020), El feels life may finally be going her way. She has secured a guaranteed spot with a powerful magic enclave, managed to form an alliance with two friends, and everyone is convinced she is the girlfriend of Orion, the school's hero-in-residence. The only downside is trying to puzzle out why her mother sent a note warning her to keep far away from Orion. She is not sure how she feels about that advice and is looking forward to a full year of stockpiling energy crystals for her own senior-class graduation. El quickly learns the school has other plans for her final year, including a full load of classes that have her expending energy in rescuing first-year students rather than creating magical reserves. And it appears the school's entire hoard of monsters is out to get her—and only her. As the semesters pass, El wonders if she will be ready for the fight at the end of the term. The climatic graduation-day battle will bring cheers, tears, and gasps as the second of the Scholomance trilogy closes with a breathtaking cliff-hanger. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
