Morrigan Crow is cursed. Born on an unlucky day, she is 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 Eventide.

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 there that Morrigan discovers Jupiter has chosen her to contend for a place in the city's most prestigious organisation: the Wundrous Society. In order to join, she must compete in four difficult and dangerous trials against hundreds of other children, each boasting an extraordinary talent that sets them apart. Except for Morrigan, who doesn't seem to have any special talent at all.

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.

Praise for Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow:

'Unexpected, exciting and funny. Like Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter and Doctor Who swirled up together. I loved Morrigan Crow, and I want to check in at the Hotel Deucalion.' – Judith Rossell, ABIA Award-winning author of Withering-by-Sea

'Jessica Townsend's Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow is more than just a spectacular debut. Exciting, charming, and wonderfully imagined, it's the sort of delightful, grand adventure destined to be many a reader's favourite book.' – Trenton Lee Stewart, New York Times bestselling author of The Mysterious Benedict Society series and The Secret Keepers

'Queensland author Jessica Townsend's debut is an exciting and charming middle-grade read that will hook readers aged 10 and up with intricate imaginative detail and its sheer energy ... a compulsively readable romp that fans of 'Harry Potter', Terry Pratchett or Studio Ghibli will gobble up.' – Books and Publishing

'Readers, like Morrigan herself, will feel at home in this evocative novel where magic and confidence go hand in hand. An excellent and exciting work.' – School Library Journal

Industry Reviews
Fearsome and funny and original, it's requisite reading for fantasy lovers of all ages. - Libby Hathorn, CBCA Award-winning author of Thunderwith

An extraordinary story full of magics great and small, from the Hotel Deucalion to the Magnificat... Townsend has created a book of wunders. In Morrigan Crow I've found a heroine I'm willing to step boldly after, and follow her wherever her adventure takes her next. - Kiran Millwood-Hargrave, author of The Girl of Ink and Stars

Jessica Townsend's Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow is more than just a spectacular debut. Exciting, charming, and wonderfully imagined, it's the sort of delightful grand adventure destined to be many a reader's favorite book. - Trenton Lee Stewart, author of The Mysterious Benedict Society

Nevermoor is brimming over with imagination and fun. Morrigan is a wonderful heroine - dark, moody, and wry - and the unfairness of her situation makes her very easy to empathise with. The story gallops along, and the setting is wonderfully vivid ... A wonderfully assured debut from a young Australian author, Nevermoor sparkles with zest, wit and inventiveness. - Kate Forsyth, author of The Impossible Quest series
