"Spellbinding start to what promises to be a story for the ages."
5 stars"

Wonderful characterisation and scene setting support an excellent story. The cover burb likens it to Alice in Wonderland meeting Harry Potter, and you know what- It really is.

For the first time since J.K. Rowling's books appeared I find myself itching for the next volume. Read it.

"Great for fantasy lovers."
5 stars"

This has been compared to Harry Potter and it is indeed just as good a book, but great in it's own way. Morrigan is a well thought out character and Jupiter is odd and eccentric. There's a great array of characters and a whole new world and mythology to explore. This is a well paced story, definitely worth a read if you enjoy magic and fantasy and I can't wait for the next.

"If you liked Harry Potter definitely give this a go"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I hate to compare things to Harry Potter, so I was a bit dubious about this book, but it really is a fantastic read. I am dying to read the next in the series, and I have bought this book for several friends.

Description

Morrigan Crow is cursed. Born on an unlucky day, she is 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 Eventide. 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 there 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. Except for Morrigan, who doesn't seem to have any special talent at all. 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 to confront her deadly fate.
