Review on my Wrap Up Vlog

I don’t think I’ve read any middle grade books except Harry Potter and I DNFd the first Percy Jackson a long time ago. I never thought I would ever get back to the genre but couldn’t help it because my friends Ana and Dilip were reading it too. And I can say that this was a pleasant surprise – entertaining, charming and lots of fun.

Morrigan’s curse means that she is blamed for every bad thing that happens in the town – from bad weather to a broken hip. Her family is just waiting for Eventide when she will die and they can go back to living happier lives. Everything changes when the quirky Jupiter North arrives to take her away to Nevermoor and asks her to compete in the trials to become a member of the elite Wundrous Society.

Nevermoor is a wonderful place full of fascinating people, all kinds of interesting creatures and riveting technological inventions. Jupiter is the owner of Hotel Deucalion and Morrigan finds a home among the chirpy cast of characters living there which include a vampire dwarf (mind you.. he is very sensitive to being incorrectly called a dwarf vampire), a grumpy sassy talking cat Fenestra and Dame Chanda Kali who is a soprano singer whose voice has a magical hold over birds.

The setting of the book is perfect and very evocative and I enjoyed getting to know everybody. Morrigan is very low on confidence because of her upbringing and it takes her sometime to grow out of it. She starts making friends and finally believes that there are actually people who care about her. Jupiter is a Dumbledore-esque mentor who never gives her straight forward answers but is way more charming and chirpy in personality. Every other character is quite unique in their traits and that’s definitely a highlight of the book. I also liked that the author made Nevermoor ethnically diverse and seeing some very authentic Indian names made me very happy.

Despite the amazing characters, it’s the plot that fell flat for me. I expected so much more from the four trials but Morrigan just happened to skate by through luck and not much effort. Also, nothing much happened between the trials – you could just skim through paragraphs and not miss anything. The ending also felt very simplistic and anti-climactic and the reveal of the evil villain wasn’t very remarkable, though I enjoyed getting to know the truth about Morrigan’s gift.

Don’t go by my review for this book. If you enjoy middle grade or want to try the genre, you should definitely read this book. I think I had too many expectations from this one, especially because everyone is comparing it to Harry Potter. Go into it with an open mind and get ready to have some fun. I’m definitely looking forward to reading the sequel. ( )

Okay so I don't write this very often but this series of books could be the next Harry Potter as the stories are are peppered with many similarities. Poor child (Morrigan) neglected by her family who are characters in themselves...in M's case she is the Cursed Child who is blamed for everything horrible that happens in the town and has to write apology letters to people for cursing them. Rescued from her terrible life not by a giant called Hagrid but by a funny Willy Wonka type figure called Jupiter North. Through a magical portal (not on a train station) but a clock face, to a world called Nevermoor where she catches a coach to a magical school. At the school she and her cautious friends from the same coach must endure four trails to be able to stay as a citizen of Nevermoor as technically Jupiter smuggled her in to the world. While in Nevermoor, M lives at Jupiters' magical hotel where the rooms change according to the "mood/vibe" of the situation...i.e....it changes its furnishings to be comfortable when M is settled.
There are loads of quirky characters that help populate the world of Nevermoor. First in a short series of three books.

Morrigan Crow was supposed to die on her eleventh birthday. She is cursed, but is rescued by the colorful Jupiter North, who is an explorer, member of the Wundrous Society, magnificent hotelier, and a bit of a trouble maker. He takes "Mog" to the city of Nevermoor in the Free States, making a home for her at his hotel, the Deucalion. A great but sometimes vexing mentor/sponsor for Morrigan, Jupiter convinces her she is not cursed, and can succeed to join the elite Wundrous Society. To do this, she needs to pass four challenging trials that will determine if she has it in her to be part of something bigger than herself: only nine candidates succeed each year from a pool of 500 .

Morrigan is brave despite her fears, kind despite the treatment she has received from her father and stepmother, and has a wonderful sense of both imagination and humor, making her a likable character. Her greatest desire is to have friends and a family, and her first friendship with Hawthorn, the dragon rider is adorable. The tension mounts as Morrigan makes a startling discovery about the evil, banned Wundersmith, and the looming final trial, which showcases every candidate's unique talent, which Morrigan does not know. If she loses, she will be banned from Nevermoor by the Stink (police.) A good fantasy, but long read for middle schoolers. I especially liked the Brollie transportation system.
