Publisher's Summary

A breathtaking, enchanting new series by debut Australian author Jessica Townsend, about a cursed girl who escapes death and finds herself in a magical world - but is then tested beyond her wildest imagination.
Morrigan Crow is cursed. Born on an unlucky day, she is blamed for all local misfortunes, from hailstorms to heart attacks - and, worst of all, the curse means that Morrigan is doomed to die at midnight on Eventide. But as Morrigan awaits her fate, a strange and remarkable man named Jupiter North appears. Chased by black-smoke hounds and shadowy hunters on horseback, he whisks her away into the safety of a secret, magical city called Nevermoor.
It's there that Morrigan discovers Jupiter has chosen her to contend for a place in the city's most prestigious organisation: the Wundrous Society. In order to join, she must compete in four difficult and dangerous trials against hundreds of other children, each boasting an extraordinary talent that sets them apart. Except for Morrigan, who doesn't seem to have any special talent at all.
To stay in the safety of Nevermoor for good, Morrigan will need to find a way to pass the tests - or she'll have to leave the city to confront her deadly fate.

a terrifically whimsical story.

ive seen this book being billed as the net Harry Potter, and while being quite differnt from Harry Potter, i Honestly think it deserves just as much success. and i can see someome turning this story into a movie or a TV series in the near future.

the story is intriguing amd captivating, with charming and quirky charcters that you'll just fall inlove with. set in a world unlike anything ive encountered before just makes me want to dive in and learn more about it.

and the narration was well done (although i found one of voices she used particularly annoying, but it was charcter that didnt show up that much so i didnt mind that much).
