I'm not sure if El ever called the school Evil Hogwarts*, but she may as well have. I don't think either of them have any explicit Harry Potter references (unlike something like the Rivers of London series), but Scholomance's roots in Harry Potter fan-fiction are fairly obvious. Ninth House has more of a real world inspiration for its setting, I think it does seem that Leigh Bardugo has a bit of a love-hate relationship with Yale. 1 hour ago, dog-days said: * On second thoughts, Scholomance is quite a bit nicer than Hogwarts in some respects, though not in terms of catering. At least it doesn't have an entire house basically devoted to being evil, the pupils in the Scholomance may do horrible things to each other but mostly out of a desire for self-preservation. dog-days 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
