The captivating and heart-pounding sequel to the New York Times bestselling and #1 Kids' Indie Next Pick Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow, as heroine Morrigan battles a new evil.
Morrigan Crow and her best friend Hawthorne Swift are now proud scholars in the elite Wundrous Society, but life is far from perfect. Does Morrigan have what it takes to prove that she belongs in the Society?
Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow was an instant New York Times bestseller, an IndieBound bestseller and a #1 Indies Introduce Pick, with movie rights sold to Fox.

I’m back again with yet another book review, I’m very glad to be out of my reading slump and to be reading a bit faster for me although a bit slower than the library would like me to. Technically the checkout time in Hawaii is only 2 weeks, but it has been taking me 2.5 weeks if I’m reading pretty consistently. I’ve finally finished another book and that’s why we are here.
I finished the second book in the Nevermoor series called Wundersmith: The Calling of Morrigan Crow. If you haven’t read my first review on Nevermoor, you can read that here. This book is the continuing story of Morrigan Crow and her life inside Nevermoor. Morrigan Crow has begun her first year with the Wunderous Society with the rest of her class. In this book, we find Jupiter North distracted by disappearances that are happening throughout Nevermoor. He also continues to worry that Morrigan isn’t getting the education she deserves, but isn’t sure how to help her. Morrigan on the other hand worries that she is the reason, her unit is being plagued with threats and wonders if all the urban myths are true.

While, I liked this book and how it drove the story forward in the world of Morrigan Crow. I however didn’t appreciate that in this book that we find that there might be a bigger villain, which we haven’t met yet. I did read somewhere that the author was inspired by Harry Potter and hopes to have that many books for this series as well. I’m interested to see how the story continues and how soon the books come out, since it appears that I will soon be caught up in real time. I would still definitely recommend that you read the series if you haven’t already because this world is just as fanciful as the first book and we find the world slowly expanding in the second book.

I hope that you enjoyed this review and that you will stick around for more reviews coming in the future.
