Morrigan Crow has been one of the cursed children all her life. Everything bad that has happened to her family or community during her lifetime is due to her curse. Her less than loving family has all but abandoned her and can't seem to wait until the end of her 12th year when all cursed children die. At eleven years old, Morrigan is supposed to have one more year, but suddenly the Skyfaced Clock begins to change and the bells ring signaling the beginning of the Eventide. On her last night of life at her last dinner, Jupiter arrives and offers to take Morrigan away to a place where she will be safe. Barely escaping the Hunt of Smoke and Shadow, Jupiter takes Morrigan to Nevermoor, a magical community where things aren't always what they appear. Jupiter is to be Morrigan's patron in the Wundrous Society trials where she will show her special talent, but Morrigan has no special talent unless being a curse is considered a talent, but Jupiter tells her her talent will be revealed later. In the meantime, Morrigan meets many different characters, but she is troubled by Mr. Jones who continues to find Morrigan and tell her that Ezra Squall would like for her to be his apprentice. She wonders who Ezra Squall is and what his interest in her is.

Some have compared this book to Harry Potter, but Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow is more reminiscent of The Iron Trial. In both books, it is clear that there is an ambiguity regarding the side on which the main character will fall, light or dark. Also in both books, the main character does not really know the history of what has happened to put him or her in this situation. In addition, both involve a special school where he or she will train. Overall this book has many good qualities making it worth the read. ( )

Review on my Wrap Up Vlog

I don’t think I’ve read any middle grade books except Harry Potter and I DNFd the first Percy Jackson a long time ago. I never thought I would ever get back to the genre but couldn’t help it because my friends Ana and Dilip were reading it too. And I can say that this was a pleasant surprise – entertaining, charming and lots of fun.

Morrigan’s curse means that she is blamed for every bad thing that happens in the town – from bad weather to a broken hip. Her family is just waiting for Eventide when she will die and they can go back to living happier lives. Everything changes when the quirky Jupiter North arrives to take her away to Nevermoor and asks her to compete in the trials to become a member of the elite Wundrous Society.

Nevermoor is a wonderful place full of fascinating people, all kinds of interesting creatures and riveting technological inventions. Jupiter is the owner of Hotel Deucalion and Morrigan finds a home among the chirpy cast of characters living there which include a vampire dwarf (mind you.. he is very sensitive to being incorrectly called a dwarf vampire), a grumpy sassy talking cat Fenestra and Dame Chanda Kali who is a soprano singer whose voice has a magical hold over birds.

The setting of the book is perfect and very evocative and I enjoyed getting to know everybody. Morrigan is very low on confidence because of her upbringing and it takes her sometime to grow out of it. She starts making friends and finally believes that there are actually people who care about her. Jupiter is a Dumbledore-esque mentor who never gives her straight forward answers but is way more charming and chirpy in personality. Every other character is quite unique in their traits and that’s definitely a highlight of the book. I also liked that the author made Nevermoor ethnically diverse and seeing some very authentic Indian names made me very happy.

Despite the amazing characters, it’s the plot that fell flat for me. I expected so much more from the four trials but Morrigan just happened to skate by through luck and not much effort. Also, nothing much happened between the trials – you could just skim through paragraphs and not miss anything. The ending also felt very simplistic and anti-climactic and the reveal of the evil villain wasn’t very remarkable, though I enjoyed getting to know the truth about Morrigan’s gift.

Don’t go by my review for this book. If you enjoy middle grade or want to try the genre, you should definitely read this book. I think I had too many expectations from this one, especially because everyone is comparing it to Harry Potter. Go into it with an open mind and get ready to have some fun. I’m definitely looking forward to reading the sequel. ( )
