Series: Nevermoor
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.

Townsend has created a book of wunders. In Morrigan Crow I've found a heroine I'm willing to step boldly after, and follow her wherever her adventure takes her next. - Kiran Millwood-Hargrave, author of The Girl of Ink and StarsJessica Townsend's Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow is more than just a spectacular debut. Exciting, charming, and wonderfully imagined, it's the sort of delightful grand adventure destined to be many a reader's favorite book.From the first sentence of Chapter One, The kitchen cat was dead, and Morrigan was to blame , we are drawn helter-skelter into a gripping tale. A cursed child with fearsome trials to undertake and a parade of eccentric characters to meet, Morrigan sweeps us along to Wundrous Nevermoor.With her entry to the bizarrely attractive Hotel Deucalion, Townsend's readers are thrust into the eye of a colourful hurricane. We flirt with death, magic and mayhem as quixotic Jupiter North shepherds his young charge seeking entry to the Wundrous Society through a quality she and the reader are impelled to discover.
