Wunder is gathering ...
Morrigan Crow has escaped her deadly fate and found a new home in the fantastical city of Nevermoor.
She has also discovered that she has a strange and magical ability. But will her unique talent be a blessing or another curse?
Now that Morrigan and her best friend Hawthorne are proud scholars in the elite Wundrous Society, she is sure that she's found a place to belong at last, but life is far from perfect. Can Morrigan prove that she deserves to be in the Society - or will an unexpected enemy ruin her new life?
PRAISE FOR WUNDERSMITH: THE CALLING OF MORRIGAN CROW
'There is more extraordinary world-building, as well as tough ethical decisions, in Wundersmith, Jessica Townsend's superlative follow-up to the unmissable Nevermoor' The Guardian
'Townsend's world is both whimsical and familiar, her characters magical but relatable, and it's all cut through with a wickedly infectious sense of humour. Inventive, thoughtful, and an outrageous amount of fun, Townsend is now two for two in the Nevermoor series' The Au Review
'intermixes the magic of the Emerald City with Howl's pithiness, Percy Jackson's humor, [and] Coraline's darkness' Kirkus
'an amazingly detailed and fascinating fantasy world ... will keep 8+ readers on the edge of their seat' Better Reading
