An instant New York Times bestseller! "A Harry Potter-esque adventure." --Time Magazine A breathtaking, enchanting new series by debut 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. Having been born on Eventide, the unluckiest day for any child to be born, she's 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 her eleventh birthday. 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 then that Morrigan discovers Jupiter has chosen her to contend for a place in the city's most prestigious organization: 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--an extraordinary talent that Morrigan insists she does not have. 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. Perfect for fans of the Harry Potter series and Neil Gaiman, this fast-paced plot and imaginative world has a fresh new take on magic that will appeal to a new generation of readers.

Morrigan Crow tahu dia akan mati saat berulang tahun ke-12, tepat pada hari Eventide. Seperti halnya anak-anak lain yang lahir pada tahun yang sama, dia dituduh sebagai penyebab semua kesialan di kotanya, dari kematian, cuaca buruk, kekalahan dalam lomba, sampai makanan basi. Namun, siapa sangka Eventide tiba satu tahun lebih cepat? Dan, siapa sangka pula, bukannya Maut, malah Jupiter North yang menjemputnya, membawa Morrigan kabur ke kota rahasia, Nevermoor. Sejenak, Morrigan merasa aman. Namun, itu hanya sementara, karena tantangan lainnya telah menanti. Sebagai penduduk ilegal, satu-satunya cara bagi Morrigan untuk tetap tinggal adalah menjadi anggota Wundrous Society. Hanya sembilan anak yang akan diterima di akademi bergengsi bagi anak-anak berbakat itu, jadi, bagaimana mungkin Morrigan bersaing dengan ratusan anak hebat lainnya saat dia sendiri bahkan tidak mengetahui kemampuan yang dia miliki? Morrigan hanya ingin terlepas dari kutukan Eventide. Dia hanya menginginkan tempat yang bisa disebutnya rumah, orang-orang yang bisa dianggapnya sahabat dan keluarga. Sebegitu sulitkah?
