Summary
An instant New York Times bestseller!
"A Harry Potter-esque adventure." -- Time Magazine
A breathtaking, enchanting new series by debut author Jessica Townsend, about a cursed girl who escapes death and finds herself in a magical world--but is then tested beyond her wildest imagination.
Morrigan Crow is cursed. Having been born on Eventide, the unluckiest day for any child to be born, she's blamed for all local misfortunes, from hailstorms to heart attacks--and, worst of all, the curse means that Morrigan is doomed to die at midnight on her eleventh birthday.
But as Morrigan awaits her fate, a strange and remarkable man named Jupiter North appears. Chased by black-smoke hounds and shadowy hunters on horseback, he whisks her away into the safety of a secret, magical city called Nevermoor.
It's then that Morrigan discovers Jupiter has chosen her to contend for a place in the city's most prestigious organization: the Wundrous Society. In order to join, she must compete in four difficult and dangerous trials against hundreds of other children, each with an extraordinary talent that sets them apart--an extraordinary talent that Morrigan insists she does not have. To stay in the safety of Nevermoor for good, Morrigan will need to find a way to pass the tests--or she'll have to leave the city to confront her deadly fate.
Perfect for fans of the Harry Potter series and Neil Gaiman, this fast-paced plot and imaginative world has a fresh new take on magic that will appeal to a new generation of readers.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The future looks bleak for 11-year-old Morrigan, who's famously destined to die on Eventide. It's surprising then that she receives an invitation to become a candidate for the Wundrous Society. Jupiter North, a mysterious, magical man, transports her to Nevermoor, the fantastic city where she will compete with other candidates for an extraordinary education and lifelong society membership. Though Jupiter introduces Morrigan to new creatures, technologies, and experiences in Nevermoor, he adroitly dodges her questions about the ghostly Hunt that chases her, the competition that awaits her, and why he chose to sponsor her for the Wundrous Society. An Australian writer, Townsend knows how to keep the pages turning in this fast-paced story, even while introducing plenty of characters and plot elements to be developed in future volumes. Putting aside similarities to the Harry Potter books, and there are many, this novel sets up the framework for a projected series while combining elements of inventive fantasy, high-voltage adventure, and cryptic mystery in one appealing package.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "First in a series, Townsend's spellbinding debut introduces Morrigan Crow, a cursed girl from the Wintersea Republic, who brings bad luck to everyone she meets and is destined to die at midnight on her 11th birthday. The Hunt of Smoke and Shadow, a terrifying shadowy entity, is poised to kill Morrigan when a mysterious man named Jupiter North spirits her away to Nevermoor, an independent, magically warded city where the Hunt cannot travel. Jupiter belongs to the elite group called the Wundrous Society, and he wants to sponsor Morrigan's membership. She doubts that she will pass the four entrance trials-particularly since she'll be battling 500 singularly talented children for one of nine available spots-but she agrees to try: without Society membership, the Nevermoor police will deport Morrigan back to Wintersea, where the Hunt is waiting. Morrigan is a captivating heroine, filled with moxie and wit, whose unexpected second chance at life gives her the opportunity to discover who she truly is. Whimsical worldbuilding, humorous dialogue, and colorful supporting characters complement an adventurous, magic-filled plot that champions bravery, self-confidence, and hope. Ages 8-12.
