Wow, this was brilliant fun and in my opinion even better than the first in the series. I think this one gave me all those nostalgic feelings of when I first read Harry Potter, and I couldn't help but to fall in love with the world once again and get emotionally invested in the characters. There was so much to like in this book, and Morrigan's story felt a bit darker and the stakes were higher too. I think if you like the first you will love the second!

This book continues where the first one lea
Nine young people in Morrigan Crow’s unit – nine who had said under oath to be friends, be loyal to each other. Morrigan was thrilled to finally have a family; to have people who cared about her. When they all began their classes, the students had ingenious and exciting things to learn – all except Morrigan, whose teacher would concentrate on Wundersmith’s alone – and how evil and degraded they all were, both past and present. Morrigan’s patron, Jupiter North, did all he could to change the Elde ...more

What can I say except I LOVE THIS SERIES.

Once again, Townsend pulls you into a world of wunder and whimsy, and doesn't let go. We follow Morrigan as she begins classes as the Wundrous Society, and follow her on a journey about belonging and finding yourself.

Like many of the great classics of children's literature, Townsend plays with the fallibility of adults. What do you do when the people who are supposed to look out for you, to know what to do when faced with challenges, aren't there to help?

Number two in the series and a great follow up to Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow. The author advanced all the characters and the main story line but still left plenty hanging to keep our interest open for the next book.

Jessica Townsend writes well. These are really middle grade children's books but they still stand up for an adult reader. There is plenty of action as Morrigan begins to come into her powers. She is a little bit prone to throwing herself into situations she has been warned

I am loving this series so much. This second installment was a blast and a half. It definitely continues to have some Harry Potter vibes with horrible teachers, a fantastical carriage/common room, a missing cat (Mrs. Norris?), a Malfoy-and-others-type group of bullies, and Morrigan being a parselmouth... *cough* I mean... lol enemies of the heir beware! But it is it's own story with tons of adventures for Morrigan and her classmates that keep you engaged and thoroughly entertained. My favorites ...more

The adorable quirky tales of Ms. Morrigan Crow continue...and her adventures get even more exciting...

After having barely passed her trials, Mog is left confused and bewildered. Saying anything more about the finale of the first book or elaborating further on the title of this book, will amount to revealing spoilers for the first book. So, I'll keep mum.

This book gives more reasons to the reader to draw parallels with Harry Potter. The stand-offs with the adversary, questioning one's own goodne

After the wundrously magical and funny Nevermoor - The Trials of Morrigan Crow our main protagonist returns picking up where we left off. Having successfully made it through the trials in book one Morrigan will join Hawthorne and seven other scholars in Unit 919 studying at the prestigious Wundrous Society. The unit will need all there knacks as they navigate their ways through a challenging 6 months.

Morrigan will have to fight through the stigma of being a Wundersmith in a land that fears them.

This book follows on from, “Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow.” We met Morrigan in the first book, where we discovered her story. Cursed, she was destined to die on her eleventh birthday; plus all of the bad luck that occurs is blamed on her. However, before her fate overtakes her, she is whisked away by a man called Jupiter North to the secret city of Nevermoor, where she is given the chance to join the Wundrous Society.

However, of course, despite having escaped her fate, life is not going

I've just finished this book and I'm struggling to figure out the best way to sum up just how much I loved it. I can say with confidence that the Nevermoor series has already earned it's place amongst my favourite books. I adore Morrigan Crow, she is such a wonderful character, but it's not just her, it's Jupiter, Hawthorne, Fenestra, the hotel, the brilliantly crafted world that Jessica Townsend is sharing.
I'm so excited for the next one (release date unknown), but in the meantime, I wouldn't

Hach... vom Inhalt her kann ich bei einem zweiten Teil natürlich nicht viel sagen.
Trotzdem weiterhin meine Empfehlung für diese Reihe! Auch Band 2 hat mich auf jeder Seite wieder begeistert und ich war nach nur wenigen zeilen wieder in der Welt von Morrigan Crow, Nevermoor und jetzt auch der Wundrous Society (Wie heisst sie auf deutsch eigentlich?). Ich liebe Jessica Townsends Schreibstil: So wunderschön beschreibend und eindringlich, dass man mitten drin ist und alles gut nachvollziehen kann.

it was a slow start, but man the end! I liked it a lot. And I love how Morrigan is growing and HAWTHORNE IS AMAZING. I love their friendship. And I love how MOrrigan finally has people who support and love her unconditionally!

Is it any surprise I was able to finish this book in one day? I absolutely loved the previous book and have been dying for Wundersmith basically since I finished Nevermoors last page. Townsend continues the whimsical adventure with our lovely Morrigan joining the Wunderous Society. But don't expect this to be your typical magical school experience. Morrigan must deal with the fallout of being outed as a Wundersmith and while she has been nothing but loveable, there is already prejudice against a ...more

One of the difficulties for the Tales of Morrigan Crow is that it is following on from a giant.
There is more than just a little of Harry Potter in the series.
All I'll say about that is whether you love this series or not will probably have a lot to do with how you feel about those similarities. For some it will be a ripoff, for others it will be an influence.

Personally, I love it and I love the world that Jessica Townsend is building. It's working for me on every level.

I’ve been simultaneously wildly excited and terribly nervous about reading Wundersmith.

This book, this series, is so wonderful and mesmerizing! Nevermoor is incredible and I want to explore it so much more.
I'm so happy that the second book has been as good to me as the first.

I read Nevermoor earlier in the year and it became one of my all-time favourite books. I wanted to re-read Nevermoor before the sequel, and I was worried that I wouldn't enjoy it as much (which happens sometimes) but it was just as fantastic and made me feel right at home.

But she thought she could probably get on board with Introverts Utterly Anonymous, which promised no meetings or gatherings of any sort, ever.” 15 likes
