Nevermoor by Jessica Townsend

Morrigan Crow is cursed.  Having been born on Eventide, the unluckiest day of the year, 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 to the safety of a secret, magical city called Nevermoor.

It’s then that Morrigan discovers Jupiter wants 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 – 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 – otherwise she’ll have to leave and confront her deadly fate once and for all.

Perfect for fans of the Harry Potter series and Neil Gaiman, this fast-paced plot and imaginative world has a fresh new take on magic that will appeal to a new generation of readers.

A breathtaking, enchanting new series by debut author Jessica Townsend, about a cursed girl who escapes death and finds herself in a magical world – but is then tested beyond her wildest imagination.

Peer & Press Reviews

The subject of a heated publishers’ auction, Townsend’s debut fully lives up the hype.

Mail on Sunday

An extraordinary story full of magics great and small, from the Hotel Deucalion to the Magnificat…  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 Stars

Townsend’s intensely cinematic writing, quirky humour and superior world-building conjure a genuinely fresh take on magical fantasy.

Fiona Noble, The Bookseller
