Wundersmith: The Calling of Morrigan Crow

by Jessica Townsend

Little, Brown and Company, 2018

Middle Grade Fantasy

9 cups of tea out of 11

Summary: Morrigan Crow has been living in Nevermoor a year when residents start to go missing. Things get personal very quickly but Morrigan is still struggling to understand her abilities.

Likes: We get to go deeper into the geography and history of Nevermoor. I found it fascinating. Through those pieces, we get to see the complexity of the situation Morrigan is in. People like her are complicated and sometimes she doesn’t have all the facts. Ezra Squall is also pretty scary and interesting. I also like that Jupiter, Jack, and Morrigan are bonding even more.

Dislikes: There was a little less structure to the plot in this one than the first.

Overall I enjoyed it more than the first. I let my expectations and need to compare it to Harry Potter drift away and I just enjoyed myself. After finishing it I wanted to go back and read the first one and this one again.
