Wundersmith: The Calling of Morrigan Crow product reviews

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?

The hype for the first book was big and when the sequel came out it was no less, the excitement from customers at the bookshop I work in was infectious and everyone, adults and kids alike, were eagerly awaiting The Calling of Morrigan Crow to come out. The book follows on not too long after the first, Morrigan has survived the trials and is now preparing for what she thinks will be the new family and life she's always been craving, the inclusion into a grand world full of promises of brother and sister hood. Of course, things don't always go as one hopes and she has to deal with the animosity of her classmates, the un-trusting staff at her new school and the ever present threat of last Wundersmith.

While the overall focus is on Morrigan and her growing abilities there is still plenty of things mixed in. Townsend does a good job of moving things along at a fast enough pace that you're never bored but also filled with moments that show us just how lonesome Morrigan still is and how much longing she has to feel she fits in. Whilst the facts revealed near the end of the book weren't a surprise to me, everything flowed along so well and didn't shout it in your face that there was no surprise but also no moment of 'well what else could it be' annoyance.

The characters grow well, there is never anything that feels out of place, trust and belief in Morrigan are never fully gained from anyone other than those who already cared for her from the first book, but where everyone sits as the book ends feels just right and what you would expect. The great thing about Nevermoor is that there is so much packed into such a small place, there is enough to keep everyone busy without travelling to and fro to other realms and it makes it sound like such an interesting place (and a little scary) to get lost in.

If you enjoyed the first book, you'll certainly enjoy this one, and if you haven't read the first book then what are you waiting for?!?!?!
