Morrigan Crow is a fascinating young girl who is rescued from a horrible fate. She is brought to an amazing 'new' world filled with magic and possibilities beyond imagination! The reader travels over a year with Morrigan as she explores her new life and eventually realizes that she is much more than an ordinary girl! I can't wait for the next book to come out! I simply MUST know what happens next!

My 11yo son read this and loved it and recommended it to me. I loved reading it as well.

This is the start of an exciting new middle grade series, perfect for fans of Harry Potter. Morrigan Crow is a lovable and relatable character, and I found myself rooting for her from page one. Young readers will be drawn into her world and will likely fly through the pages, desperate to find out what her "knack" is. I can't wait for the next installment.

Step Boldly! I breezed right through this book, which is saying something as it is a bit long for the middle grade genre (approx. 450 pages). But the action kept me turning the pages as well as the mysterious goings on in Nevermoor. There is a lot in this book that is left unexplained until the very end and even then we still don’t know what’s to come. But that’s what sequels are for right? (fingers crossed!) There were some good lessons for middle graders in this book, including lessons about bullying, having differences, and judging books by their covers, so to speak. I think kids would relate to Morrigan Crow and her friend, Hawthorne. I think they would also enjoy the idea of escaping to somewhere magical and learning that there is something special about them. I wouldn’t be surprised if this new world Jessica Townsend has created becomes the next craze in middle grade fantasy fiction. Have we finally found the next Harry Potter? Only time will tell…but I’m anxious for Morrigan’s next adventure. Until then, step boldly! Read full review at: KaitsBookshelf.com

I was blown away by this book. As a fan of YA literature, I cannot wait for the next in the series. The character were realistic and fun. The world was creative and magical with room for lots of different types of future plots. i wish this new writer well and hope that many families enjoy this book and her future work!
