Wunder is gathering in Nevermoor...

Morrigan Crow may have defeated her deadly curse, passed the dangerous trials and joined the mystical Wundrous Society, but her journey into Nevermoor and all its secrets has only just begun. And she is fast learning that not all magic is used for good.

Return to the magical world of Nevermoor! Morrigan Crow's perilous adventures continue in the most anticipated sequel of the year, a treat for all fans of magic and Wunder.

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 new enemy ruin her new life?

"Unexpected, exciting and funny. Like Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter and Doctor Who swirled up together."
Judith Rossell, ABIA Award-winning author of Withering-by-Sea

"Exciting, charming, and wonderfully imagined, it's the sort of delightful, grand adventure destined to be many a reader's favourite book."
Trenton Lee Stewart, New York Times bestselling author of The Mysterious Benedict Societyseries and The Secret Keepers

"It really is brilliant, with an engaging plot, plenty of twists, memorable characters and a marvellous sense of humour. Pick it up and the hours disappear, just like magic."
Daily Telegraph

"An exciting and charming middle-grade read that will hook readers aged 10 and up with intricate imaginative detail and its sheer energy...a compulsively readable romp that fans of 'Harry Potter', Terry Pratchett or Studio Ghibli will gobble up."

    The tales of Morrigan Crow keep me on the edge of my seat. Brilliant storyline & writing by Jessica Townsend. I’m hanging for the next book. The best series I’ve read in a long time.

    There is so much to love in this in this magical return to the world of Nevermoor! After facing the four perilous trials, our plucky heroine Morrigan Crow has finally been admitted to the prestigious Wundrous Society, only to discover that it isn’t quite the haven of acceptance and wonder that it promised to be. What’s more, fear is gathering over the city of Nevermoor as many of its citizens start to mysteriously disappear, and Morrigan finds that her courage will soon be tested in ways beyond her wildest dreams.

    Wundersmith contains all of the mischief and mayhem of Nevermoor and loads more, making this a wondrous (or should that be Wundrous?) achievement for children’s fiction. If your kids haven’t discovered this enchanting series yet, then there’s no time like the present - this is a wonderful and worthy sequel to last year’s breakout hit!
