Magically Brilliant

This story is addictive. I wasn't able to stop. I think my favourite scene was when Morrigan met Onstald for the first time. I laugh out loud. Love this story. I liked the narrator but I imagined Jupiter's voice a little different, not so stern.

narrator

narrator is a bit annoying and acts out the different characters too much in my opinion, but i got used to it in the end

Excellent continutation, full of magic.

Not designed to be read without its predecessor, it follows on from Morrigan Crow's initial introduction to Nevermoor. Having passed her trials and allowed into the Wundrous Society, knowing her 'knack' (her power), Morrigan is looking forward to learning how to control her abilities and making lifelong friends. But of course, things are never that easy, and enemies with hidden agendas start interfering in her ambitions, threatening trouble.

I thought of Harry Potter as the Wundrous students began their lessons, but there is little similarity to any popular series. It was great to revisit Morrigan and her friends, and imagine a world of magic with the story advancing into Morrigan's training.

All the characters you'll remember liking in Nevermoor are back, we don't really get any development in any apart from Morrigan herself, the story moves along and they react to what is going on, with mysteries and a deeper view of her new world.

I listened to the Audible version of this, which was very enjoyable and easy to keep up with, with the adult narrator suiting the teenage protagonist, I didn't consider her voice as too old, she voiced the range of young and older characters smoothly.

The story ends with plenty of scope for a longer series, and I might be keeping up with them.

With thanks to Nudge Books for providing a sample Audible copy.

Spellbinding!

This was a wonderful read and listen beginning to end. I read the book while listening to the audio and it was absolutely lovely. The narrator is brilliant in my opinion. The story is beautiful. The fantastical universe Jessica Townsend has crafted is spellbinding. Loved every minute.

Absolutely captivating!

I just had to rewiew this one. It's my first ever rewiew. This is a lovely series! I'm enjoying it immensely as an adult who has grown up reading and loving Harry Potter. It has an engaging story and good characters. You find yourself impatiently wanting more. I'm going through this series fast and with delight. A good narrator also contributes loads.

I struggled with this

The first book.in this series was incredible. Very funny, strong development of characters and the Nevermore world.
I struggled with this one. It was decent enough, but for me, it lost the charm of the first. I will continue with the series as it has so much potential and I love the authors style, but this book seemed to get too dark too quickly. The narration, however, was superb.

We really enjoyed this book (listening in the car with my children). The narrator is fantastic and really brings the characters to life.
