On Eventide, the eve of her eleventh birthday, while Morrigan Crow’s family anticipate release from the curse she afflicts on them and her family, events take a totally different path. Strangers appear, wanting to bid for Morrigan, protesting that she has gifts and talents that make her ideal for new lives with them. With a pinch of magic, Morrigan is propelled to the secret city of ‘Nevermoor‘, to the home of the jester-like maverick Jupiter North. He is convinced that her unique talent will see her through a series of quests that will admit her to the secret Wundrous Society- but what is that talent? Isn’t she really cursed?

This new interpretation of the traditional good versus evil story is vibrant, hopeful and broadly stroked. There is room for imagination, anticipation and a rollicking series.

We recommend ‘Nevermoor‘ to readers who need a big, wide shaped series, readers of imagination and commitment aged from 10 years or so.
