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. 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 inches.… (more)

A good conclusion to the series. ( )

What a great conclusion to this trilogy. I will definitely miss El, and miss this world-building as well! As always, Novik's magic systems make me deeply envious, and I can't wait to see what she's got coming next! ( )

A decent ending to the trilogy but not quite as good as the first two books. While they were neatly confined between the walls of Scholomance, this one took on the entire world. And that gave it more of a rushed feeling, lacking the depth of the first two. And quite honestly, I wasn't happy that not everyone got what they deserved to have coming to them. Overall, the trilogy was good, but I would have liked this final volume to have the same scale as the first two or have been expanded to make this a quartology. ( )

Waaaaaaaaaa, vet ikke hva jeg føler nå. Alt ga mening, etter plot twist etter plot twist… ingen plot holes. Veldig bra skrevet, og passer veldig godt som siste bok i serien. ( )

Kind of like the last book(s) of Harry Potter, most of the story in this third book takes place outside of the school.

If you take a glimpse at the chapter titles, you can see how El trots around the world to do what she needs to do.
In this sense, the third book is more formulaic than the first two in the series, with less deviation from expectations.

Ending spoilers: Kind of like Spinning Silver and Uprooted, Novik gives us a strong, yet poignant ending. It's not a sad ending, but it's also not a rainbow and puppy-dogs, happily-ever-after ending either.
It teaches people that your happy ending might not look the way you originally imagined, but it is also not that bad either.

To start things off, the story in "The Golden Enclaves" was simply enchanting. Naomi Novik built a deep and thorough world that was so easy to get lost in. The plot was full of twists and turns that made it impossible to stop listening. The characters were developed so well, and were so relatable. El, the protagonist, is a complex character who is tough and determined.....

The last thing Orion said to me, the absolute bastard, was El, I love you so much.
Quotations
If we were going to do an exhaustive search, we ought to have gone back up and started at the library, but we didn't, in the same way you know perfectly well you ought to stop reading and go to bed and you'll feel hideously groggy in the morning if you don't, and yet you keep going.
