The Trials of Morrigan Crow (Nevermoor, #1) by Jessica Townsend

Title: The Trials of Morrigan Crow
Author: Jessica Townsend
Pages: Paperback - 384 pages / Hardback - 480 pages

Series? Yes: Nevermoor (1)



A cursed girl escapes death and finds herself in a magical world - but is then tested beyond her wildest imagination

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 organization: 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 will need to find a way to pass the tests - or she'll have to leave the city to confront her deadly fate.



Hello everyone!

In June we are going to be reading The Trials of Morrigan Crow (#1 Nevermoor) by Jessica Townsend as our monthly BOTM pick. We are so happy to have you join us! Welcome!

NOTES:

Every month, the leaders will be Noly, Holly, and Ellie and together with all the people taking part in the discussion, we will decide if we want to have a structured way of reading the BOTM (a few chapters a day, a week, etc), or if we want to read at our own pace and check back in later. Feel free to do what works for you, but if you finish the book and want to gush about it but others are still reading, use the Spoiler Hider. You can find how to use that in the little (some HTML is ok) link in the right-hand top corner of the comment box.

We hope you all have a wonderful reading month and discuss it with us!

BOTM Leaders:

Holly
Noly
Ellie
