HARDCOVER GIFT EDITION

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.

Marijke is the Customer Service Supervisor at Boffins and has been a Boffin for over five years, and a bird fanatic for even longer. She reads anything interesting.

This book captured my interest because it reminded me of my childhood favourites, Tamora Pierce and Mercedes Lackey. It’s a great blend of fantasy and action adventure and hits all the right spots – a courageous and kind-hearted main character finding their way in a strange new world and using all their skills to overcome a host of troubles, from schoolyard bullies to escaped shadow-beasts and discovering magical talents. This hardcover gift edition features a gorgeous cover and will be a treasured addition to any young person's library.
