Colorful, unbelievable and eccentric world full of dangerous adventures, laughter and friendship.
All her life Morrigan Crow is blamed for all of the bad luck and accidents that occur in her hometown and she is cursed to die on her 11th birthday at midnight. As Morrigan is ready to accept the unfairly early death, an eccentric stranger Jupiter North comes to her door and invites Morrigan to Nevermoor – a magical place where death can not reach her. But there is a catch, to live in Nevermoor, she must enter the trials of the Wundrous Society, where hundreds of the most talented and extraordinary children come together to compete with each other. When all other children compete for honor and prestige, Morrigan needs victory to live. Unfortunately she does not have any talent or skills as far as she knows. She has a year to figure out how to stay in this magical place, which she becomes to love. There is a second perk – the winners of the competition are promised to be in a close circle of friends, like a family, which lonely girl like Morrigan desperately longs for.
Nevermoor brings the colorful world to you, where ANYTHING can happen. Magical world draws you in, keeps on your toes and leaves you wanting for more adventures of Morrigan Crow. It is the first book of the series of three.
