Strange things are happening in Nevermoor ...

Morrigan Crow and her friends have survived their first year as proud scholars of the elite Wundrous Society, helped bring down the nefarious Ghastly Market, and proven themselves loyal to Unit 919. Now Morrigan faces a new, exciting challenge: to master the mysterious Wretched Arts of the Accomplished Wundersmith, and control the power that threatens to consume her.

But a strange illness has taken hold of Nevermoor, turning its peaceable Wunimals into mindless, vicious unnimals on the hunt. As victims of the Hollowpox multiply, panic spreads. And with the city she loves in a state of fear, Morrigan quickly realises it is up to her to find a cure for the Hollowpox, even if it will put her - and the rest of Nevermoor - in more danger than ever before . . .

PRAISE FOR NEVERMOOR SERIES

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

'An exciting and charming middle-grade read that will hook readers aged 10 and up with intricate imaginative detail and its sheer energy' Books +Publishing

'Twisting, ingenious strands and subplots form narrative arcs that sustain interest and build to a thrilling climax. Story and characters are placed in an imagined land but, like the best fantasies, they illuminate universal truths to signpost a path through the real world' Weekend Australian

'It really is brilliant, with an engaging plot, plenty of twists, memorable characters and a marvellous sense of humour. Pick it up and the hours disappear, just like magic' Daily Telegraph
