Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow

by Jessica Townsend

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 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 – an extraordinary talent that Morrigan insists she does not have. To stay in the safety of Nevermoor for good, Morrigan willneed to find a way to pass the tests – or she’ll have to leave the city and confront her deadly fate once and for all.

I really liked the chapter Bid Day but the rest of it was a bit of a letdown.

I loved this book! I really liked the four trials; I think it was a brilliant idea! My favourite character was Morrigan Crow. I think it was unfair she was told she was cursed even though she wasn’t! The ending was surprising because Morrigan Crow was a ‘Wundersmith’! Jessica Townsend is a talented author and made the story extremely exciting. I would recommend this to people who like fantasy and magic. My favourite part was Christmas because it is a good way to explain why it snows, why Santa comes and why we have fires to keep us warm.

I would say that Nevermoor is one of the most exciting and interesting books I have ever read! It deserves a 9.75 out of 10. My favourite character is Morrigan because she is brave. She did very well to get into Nevermoor, then get through the trials and get into the wondrous society. I was very surprised to find out that Morrigan was a Wundersmith and think it was an extremely clever idea to make this part of the story. Jessica townsend is an inspiring writer. Cara Smith

I love this book so much it is so interesting and mysterious. There were a lot of plot twists and I definitely recommend this book to others that like Harry Potter. The fact she was cursed is so magical and she was chased by the hunt of smoke and shadow! I cant decide my favourite chapter because they are all so fun and unique.
I rate it 5 stars!

It is really interesting and it is extremely hard to put it down. The trials are really interesting to read and Nevermoor seems like such an amazing realm. Grace

This book wasn’t for me. I didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought I would. It started of great but after that it was dragging on the story. I wouldn’t recommend this book but other people might enjoy it more than I did. Ailie

I couldn’t get into the story, because it had a bad start and it wasn’t even funny. I do agree that it got better after a couple of chapters but it just wasn’t the type of book for me. Jake.
