Local Description

Morrigan Crow was born on an unlucky day and is blamed for every misfortune, from hailstorms to fatal heart attacks. Worst of all, she is doomed to die at Eventide on her 11th birthday, but at the last minute she is rescued by the eccentric Jupiter North, who whisks her away to a secret, magical city called Nevermoor.  Morrigan has been chosen to contend for a place in the city's most prestigious organisation, the Wundrous Society but, in order to join - and stay alive, she must compete in four dangerous trials against hundreds of other children who, unlike her, all boast an extraordinary talent.

This is an enchanting and whimsical adventure, featuring a sassy heroine, a truly horrible family, lots of secrets and plenty of oddball characters. Harry Potter fans aged 9 plus will adore this first book in a new series.

- Ruth


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.
