Return to the magical world of Nevermoor! Morrigan Crow's perilous adventures continue in the most anticipated sequel of the year, a treat for all fans of magic and Wunder.

Morrigan Crow has been invited to join the prestigious Wundrous Society, a place that promised her friendship, protection and belonging for life. She's hoping for an education full of wunder, imagination and discovery - but all the Society want to teach her is how evil Wundersmiths are. And someone is blackmailing Morrigan's unit, turning her last few loyal friends against her. Has Morrigan escaped from being the cursed child of Wintersea only to become the most hated figure in Nevermoor?

Worst of all, people have started to go missing. The fantastical city of Nevermoor, once a place of magic and safety, is now riddled with fear and suspicion...

WRITE A REVIEW

As good as the first book!

5

My children and I loved this book as much as the first in the series. It is surprisingly well written for a contemporary novel and I would recommend reading it out loud to your children. Not because it needs any censoring, but because it is such a witty, funny and engaging story! We will have to wait patiently now for the next in the series.

Not just a children's book!

5

This is an addictive, well written book. Even as an adult I couldn't put it down. The characters are interesting and the storyline gets you hooked - I already can't wait for the next book! The only thing I would've like would be a little recap of characters from the first book as it has been a while since I read it so it took a little bit to refresh who certain characters were when they were mentioned. Other than that - loved it!

I am already waiting for Volume 3!

Great story with interestingly developing characters.Initially purchased for my granddaughter, but is doing the rounds here first! Landscape, politics and characters are all developing nicely, it's an engaging read, a nice break from non-fiction, and I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. cheers, Mike

My 10 year old's eyes lit up when she visited me, especially eyeing the new book! and according to her parents, she had her head in the book, and was engrossed on the long drive home!

Wundersmith: The Calling of Morrigan Crow

4.8 10

100.0

Townsend's sophomore endeavor once again fully immerses her readers in a world that intermixes the magic of the Emerald City with Howl's pithiness, Percy Jackson's humor, Coraline's darkness, and perhaps a dash of the depravity of Katniss' District One. Fantasy fans will not be disappointed. Savvy readers will appreciate how the themes of otherness, group privilege, prejudice, and activism are masterfully interwoven into the overall plot. The only sad spot in an otherwise enjoyable text is the hanging question: How long until Book 3 comes out? A worthy title that deserves a spot on the fantasy shelves. - Kirkus

There is more extraordinary world-building, as well as tough ethical decisions, in Wundersmith, Jessica Townsend's superlative follow-up to the unmissable Nevermoor. - The Guardian

Enter the world of Nevermoor and its fantastical inhabitants, and be utterly enchanted. - Courier-Mail
