    Morrigan zbožňuju čím dál tím víc a fantazii Jessicy Townsend taky!

    This book follows on from, “Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow.” We met Morrigan in the first book, where we discovered her story. Cursed, she was destined to die on her eleventh birthday; plus all of the bad luck that occurs is blamed on her. However, before her fate overtakes her, she is whisked away by a man called Jupiter North to the secret city of Nevermoor, where she is given the chance to join the Wundrous Society.However, of cour...

    Is it any surprise I was able to finish this book in one day? I absolutely loved the previous book and have been dying for Wundersmith basically since I finished Nevermoors last page. Townsend continues the whimsical adventure with our lovely Morrigan joining the Wunderous Society. But don't expect this to be your typical magical school experience. Morrigan must deal with the fallout of being outed as a Wundersmith and while she has been nothing ...

    Actual rating: 4.5 starsThis world is so magical and fun and wonderful I just want to visit Nevermoor and all its oddities and beauty already 😩😍Full review to come on my blog:www.thechroniclesofdanielle.wordpress...

    I’ve been simultaneously wildly excited and terribly nervous about reading Wundersmith. Nevermoor was my absolute favourite kids book of last year and I was worried that my expectations for the follow up was too high. Wundersmith absolutely delivered and I adore this magical world more than ever. I look forward to reading further adventures with Mog and 919 in the future ❤🌂 I’ve been simultaneously wildly excited and terribly nervous a...

    It’s always a worry when you get the second book in a series, and you LOVED book 1 immensely. Could it be just as good? Will it be just as good or will it be merely OK?No doubts after reading Wundersmith- just as enthralling, just as hard to put down, and just as frustrating when it ends!
  • Lianna
    SO GOOD. So, so good. I can’t sing the praises of this series enough. I want to recommend it to everyone I pass. Once again, I am utterly won over by these characters and this author’s writing. I wish I could live within the pages of these books. There’s a magic in these words that’s only captured every once and a very rare while. Read it.

    Morrigan is introduced to the Wundrous Society and it's not exactly what she expected.Why did this book have to end? I only just got used to being back in Nevermoor and discovering its wonderful intricacies. The world-building continues to be absolutely fantastic: a mix of slightly familiar and utterly wondrous. I can't wait for the next book!
  • Michelle
    I tried very hard to read this book slowly so I could remain in the world of Nevermoor for as long as possible! What a fantastic world Jessica Townsend has created. She doesn't make the mistake of overly long descriptive passages about Nevermoor, but I can still see the place really vividly in my mind. As someone who doesn't re-read very often, I appreciated the gentle reminders about what happened in the first book. I really enjoyed Morrigan's n...

    I don't even know where to begin... Wundersmith has lived up to Nevermoor and along with it has brought in some amazing new adventures! At the time this was published, I had read Nevermoor 4 times and as much as I love Morrigan's adventures in book 1, it was AMAZING to discover all the new things in book 2! I was so excited she got to go to the summer bazaar this year and it sounded super cool.I'm very sad I finished Wundersmith already but I'm n...

    Not sure who is giving this less than 5 stars, but... Well, they're wrong.Still haven't read the first one? What's stopping you? You know you want to.Brilliant as always. But now I need the third one. Finished and ready for Hallowmas! Bring it on.
  • Caitlin
    I’m never letting this book go. I’m going to bug it, then hug it some more, and then I’m going to go shove it in peoples faces.
  • Beth-ann
    Just as wunderful as the first, can’t wait to read more!
  • Hilary Scroggie
    This series remains delightful and surprising and one of my current favourites.
  • Karina
    An exciting and gripping new installment in the Morrigan Crow series!This time, Morrigan is inside the gates of Proudfoot House as a member of the Wundrous Society - but people know her closely guarded secret...and are up to no good.While Morrigan struggles with classes - or lack of them - and tries to connect with her classmates, her mentor Jupiter North dashes off on constant missions, the evil Wundersmith Ezra Squall lurks in the shadows...By ...
  • Erica Rist
    There are not enough stars here to rate this book. I loved this dark fantasy tale of knacks, the battle between good & evil and loyalty. This is going to be an amazing series - a true classic in the making.
  • Billie
    If Nevermoor was what might have come about had Roald Dahl and J.K. Rowling collaborated, Wundersmith is what might have been birthed had Neil Gaiman wandered into the party.This is only not getting five stars because I reserve five stars for books that surprise me or go above and beyond my expectations and my expectations for this one were very, very high, so it would have taken finding cash money stashed in the pages to hit the five-star mark.
  • Noodles78
    Just sublime. I read this in a day when I've been incredibly stressed which normally stops me reading. This was just what I needed. It was just like reading a big fat hug given to me by my nearest of friends whilst drinking the best hot chocolate ever.The storyline was fun and twisty, Morrigan has the best mix of confusion, excitement, anger and need, totally identify with her. Devoured with love.
  • Nicole
    There is a certain twinkle of the eye and a change in expression when someone truly loves reading a book and if this bookseller sees you buying Wundersmith a sparkle will link you as you know the secret. Nevermoor was magic but you know Wundersmith will be Wundrous and it really is. If you read Nevermoor then you will know Morrigan {or 'Mog' to her Patron} and 8 others passed the trials to become the next class to enter the Wundersmith Co. Howe...
  • Clairey
    One of those books where you finish it and immediately want to pick up the next... Except its not been written yet!
  • Kim
    Can you even believe that a series that I originally dismissed because of all the Harry Potter comparisons has become one of my favourite children’s series? I cannot WAIT to introduce my niece and nephew to this series in a couple of years, they will love it! I pretty much ignored everything else sitting on my bedside table (five other books, in case you were wondering) to read this when it arrived on Wednesday (along with The Slightly Alarmin...

    I really admire Townsend’s ability to create / imagine so many quirky, wonderful and endearing magical elements. I love the innocence of this series so far - i feel it would be an excellent read for teenagers - it is playful, and the ‘dark’ elements are not overbearing to take away from the joy of living vicariously through Morrigan’s experience of discovering Nevermoor. At times, this second book did feel a little bogged down in uncoveri...

    I received an advanced reading copy of this book.Just like Nevemoor, Wundersmith will keep you entranced the whole way through.Morrigan starts at her new school as part of a team of scholars. They are to become a loyal and loving family, no matter what is thrown their way. Unit 919 has a big secret to keep. Will it pull them together or tear them apart?Lots more adventure and magic in Wundersmith as Unit 919 learn to control their knack and the b...

    Overall, I liked the book.Pros:- It's an interesting, fun world. - I like the mystery to it. Info is revealed slowly which is a great way to keep people like myself (who need to know everything), hooked. Cons:-The first 100 pages were a slog and should have been condensed into 25. The world building and details were too heavy for my taste. I like books that focus more on things like plot. -Morrigan is not an interesting protagonist, all the chara...

    This is happiness on paper. I ADORED the first book and raved about it to anyone who would listen, there are no words to describe just how incredible it is. Wundersmith is equally as incredible, it makes me feel warm and happy while reading it, I raced down to the bookstore on the 30th and made them open the box in the back room as it hadn’t been shelved yet, I’ve never been more excited about a book release since Harry Potter! It’s MAGICAL...

    4.5 Stars.Wundersmith does not suffer from second book syndrome. I loved this equally as much as the first one. And maybe a tad bit more bc I learned more about Morrigan and Nevermoor itself. In this book, one can really amble through Mog's schooling and new "brothers and sisters" as well as the mysteries and wonders of Nevermoor. And, Ezra is becoming more of a complex villain through it all. I suspect (and hope) that there will be a book for ea...
  • Lyn Jenkins
    So many emotions in one book. Morrigan has so much riding on er small shoulders and yet her love andd loyalty are always strong and formost in what she does. The amount of times I wanted to take the adults in this story and shake them are too many to count, but none more than at the climax. Jessica Townsend has done a fantastic job of drawing the reader in and keeping them entralled for the entire book.
