Ahoy there me mateys! If ye haven’t read the first book in this series, nevermoor, then ye might want to skip this post and go read the first book. Worth the read. If ye keep reading this log then ye have been forewarned and continue at yer own peril . . . . . .
I absolutely loved the first book and the crew has been saying that the second book was even better. I concur. This was amazing! It was so wonderful to be back with Morrigan and the lovely crew in Nevermoor. Morrigan has made it into the Wundrous Society but her first year of lessons are not at all what she expected. Everyone seems out to get her – teachers, her fellow students, and the evil Wundersmith himself, Ezra Squall.
I absolutely loved Morrigan’s classes and the differences between the teachers and subject matter. I adored the mystery of the missing people and where they end up. I love Morrigan’s best friend, Hawthorne Swift. I loved the reasons behind the blackmail and how it was resolved. I thought the world-building was as stellar as in the previous book and loved how Nevermoor’s history is delved into. I absolutely loved the forgotten character (what’s her name again?) and her role in the book. I continue to love Jupiter and Jack. And the wonderful talking cat. The ending was perfect.
This book cast a spell on me and I want more mateys! I will definitely be reading these books again. And if ye haven’t begun this series . . . what are ye blasted fools waiting on!?! Arrr!

Worst of all, people have started to go missing. The fantastical city of Nevermoor, once a place of magic and safety, is now riddled with fear and suspicion…
