Publisher's Summary

Enter the Wundrous world of Morrigan Crow and Nevermoor.

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 11th 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 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 - or she'll have to leave the city and confront her deadly fate once and for all. Perfect for fans of the Harry Potter series and His Dark Materials, this series takes listeners into an extraordinary world, setting hope and imagination alive.

    "Superb"

    I loved this book and I the narration was superb. The story has depth, characterisation and is utterly delightful. Lots of reviews are comparing it to Harry Potter but I disagree. The tone, world and nuance is utterly unlike the Potter books. It is a wonderful book and I am already waiting for book 2.

    Gemma Whelan just brought this to an extra level. It is so important for an audio book to work as an audio book and so many narrators just read rather than immerse themselves.

    I highly recommend the Book and the Narration.

    Story
    "Amazing"

    I could not stop, it was one addicting rollercoaster ride that I could go on over and over again. The characters, the plot and the writing was so captivating and exciting, drawing you into your imagination. The struggles, frustrations and challenges that you and the characters go through are both fascinating and infuriating to listen to. Gemma Whelan was a fantastic narrator who really captured the story and essence of the characters, even if she was dull at times. My favourite moments were the trials that thrilled and chilled you to the bone as you lived every second of the experience. If you get this you will not regret it because everyone will love it forever. I can't wait for the next book.

    "Brilliant story, excellently told"

    This story is so inventive, transporting you to a world that’s easy to imagine but very unlike ours. The narration is truly brilliant and brings it to life with a huge range of characterful voices.

    "Creative and beautifully read"

    Really lovely story about a sad little girl who finds asylum in a magical kingdom. Interesting theme of boarder policing embedded into a children’s story. Very imaginative and beautifully read.
