Morrigan Crow may have defeated her deadly curse, passed the dangerous four trials, and joined the mystical and prestigious Wunderous Society, but her journey has only just begun…
The people of the magical and secret city of Nevermoor have along memory of the monstrous attacks orchestrated by the only other known Wundersmith, Ezra Squall-and without giving Morrigan much of a chance, they seem to think her own knack for Wunder makes her just as deadly.
And it’s no surprise when the citizens of the Wunderous Society begin to go missing, Morrigan is the number one suspect.
Now it’s up to Morrigan and her friends, new and old, to prove her innocence-before she’s expelled from the Wunderous Society, her only home, for good.
I’m so happy to say that I enjoyed Wundersmith so much more than its predecessor. I didn’t fall head over heels like so many others have for Nevermoor, but I wanted to. I wanted to love it like everyone else seems to. I found that with this second book. I think this series has such fun potential to make Morrigan a villain (I don’t think it will happen but the potential is there and that would be so interesting.)
We really get to see Nevermoor and travel all over this country. I really enjoyed getting to see more of this new place that Morrigan has claimed as her new home. I loved all the miscellaneous weirdness with the tricksy streets and what not. I thought the world building was entertaining and creative. I got exactly what I was left wanting in the first book.
As for Morrigan, I thought she handled her situation in the best way she could. I really liked how she wanted to be the best Wundersmith she could even though everyone seemed to be trying to prevent her from learning anything at all. I really felt back for her with everyone trying to convince her that all Wundersmiths were evil. I loved her friendship with Hawthorne and Candace. I’m really hoping in the next book that the rest of 919 pulls their heads out of their butts and becomes the brothers and sisters Morrigan is so desperate for.
I think Wundersmith was infinitely better than the first book in the series. I read this all in one day and adored every page. I think this is such a fun and creative middle grade story.
Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
