The captivating and heart-pounding third book in the instant New York Times bestselling Nevermoor series, as heroine Morrigan battles a new evil. Morrigan Crow and her friends have survived their first year as proud scholars of the elite Wundrous Society, helped bring down the nefarious Ghastly Market, and proven themselves loyal to Unit 919. Now Morrigan faces a new, exciting challenge: to master the mysterious Wretched Arts of the Accomplished Wundersmith, and control the power that threatens to consume her. Meanwhile, a strange and frightening illness has taken hold of Nevermoor, turning infected Wunimals into mindless, vicious Unnimals on the hunt. As victims of the Hollowpox multiply, panic spreads. There are whispers - growing louder every day - that this catastrophe can only be the work of the Wundersmith, Ezra Squall. But inside the walls of Wunsoc, everyone knows there is a new Wundersmith - one who's much closer to home. With Nevermoor in a state of fear and the truth about Morrigan threatening to get out, the city she loves becomes the most perilous place in the world. Morrigan must try to find a cure for the Hollowpox, but it will put her - and everyone in Nevermoor - in more danger than she could have imagined.… (més)

I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. My thoughts and opinions are my own. Any quotes I use are from an unpublished copy and may not reflect the finished product.

I don't know why I thought this was going to be a trilogy, but Townsend clearly has more in store for Morrigan and her found family (which is something I am totally here for). It's clear everyone at the Deucalion loves Morrigan, and she's embraced them as her family as well. Even the hotel itself seems to have a fondness for the Wundersmith. Jupiter and Fen are the best pseudo-parents a girl could ask for, and I absolutely love seeing the two of them fight for Morrigan. They usually agree on what needs to happen, but their preferred methods can be vastly different (Fen favors claws and teeth, while Jupiter is fond of words). Moreover, it's not just that they're willing to physically and verbally brawl with others on her behalf, but they actually listen when she speaks. They respect her voice and her decisions (even when they don't agree), and it's oh-so-refreshing to read about adults that value a child's thoughts and feelings.

My son and I have been reading this series together, which I both love and hate in equal measure. I absolutely love reading these books with my son, but loathe having to wait until we can read them together. We typically read chapter books before bed at night, and he's usually asleep after a single chapter. Hollowpox has 548 pages, so only reading one chapter at night... Well, we started this book back in December, haha. It took us three months to read this book in its entirety, something I could have easily read on my own in a matter of days. However, my son made me promise I wouldn't read it without him, so here we are. Do you know how much self control it takes to stop reading? Especially when the story really gets going? It's torture! Alas, I do love sharing the experience with my son, so I guess it all evens out in the end.

Townsend has created some really remarkable secondary characters that I love to read about. Everyone in Unit 919 - including Ms. Cheery - are all wonderfully well-written and fleshed out. The people living and working at the Deucalion are also incredible characters that I enjoy seeing on the pages. There is just so much to love about the people in this book, and I've even started liking the "villain" of the story. I have a feeling there's something we don't know about them, so I'm looking forward to getting more of their backstory. Their presence has been somewhat limited in the previous books, but it's always there hovering in the background - a looming thundercloud just waiting to strike. Squall - the aforementioned villain - is a complex character that doesn't waste an opportunity. He's manipulative and cruel, yet there's something about him that I can't quite put my finger on. Like his interest in Morrigan, for example. Why does he want to train her to be the one thing that could potentially get in his way? After seeing him in several Ghostly Hours - watching the enthusiasm of the child he used to be - it's hard to hate him with the same intensity.

Seriously though... we all need people like Jupiter and Fen in our lives!

One of my favorite parts of this book was the Gobleian Library, so I really hope we get to revisit it in future books. Just think of the adventures they could have in there! I was also fascinated by the long-forgotten (and super mysterious) School of Wundrous Arts and its Scholar Mistress. Rook appears seemingly out of nowhere, and her existence isn't common knowledge, which is also true for the school on Sub-nine. There are only a handful of people that know it's there, yet the history it contains... amazing. I hope Morrigan takes the rest of Unit 919 with her to Sub-nine in the next book. I think they're mischievous enough to unlock it's secrets and find all of its hidden nooks and crannies. They may not have the access Morrigan does, but they work well together as a group.

I don't want to say too much and spoil something that happens in previous books, so I'll just say this: you need this series in your life! It's one of my favorites, and my seven-year-old is equally obsessed. Townsend has written something that both children and adults can relate to, and the stories themselves are unique and super creative. I really love diving into these books, and I cannot wait to see what exciting adventures Morrigan will go on next. (★★★★★)

Morrigan Crow gets an unusual start on her education as a Wundersmith while a dangerous plague affects more and more Wunimals which reveals and inflames anti-Wunimals sentiment trough Nevermore. A lot happens in this volume, but it is still too long and rather drags. ( )

Ah, another excellent addition to the Nevermoor series!
A bit darker that the first two, but the world building and magic continue to delight.
We see Morrigan growing in her powers and making important, sometimes unexpected decisions.
Can't wait to see more of Morrigan and her Wundrous Society friends and find out even more of the backstory of the evil Ezra Squall. ( )

Oooh boy. Was this the year to release a book about a magical pandemic? Possibly not the best in terms of timing, but honestly I was absolutely hooked once I started reading this book and even though the real-world pandemic is still going on the story was actually a really good distraction. This is the third time we've delved into the adventures of Morrigan Crow, formerly Cursed Child, current student of the Wundrous Society, and Wundersmith, and it's once again impossible not to get drawn in by her infectious personality and adventures. As Morrigan and her team (Unit 919) advance in their studies with the Wundrous Society their challenges also increase. Morrigan is obviously the lead of the story, but surprisingly her studies of her Wundersmith abilities have been very limited up until this book; here she eventually meets a third main tutor who introduces her to a group of Society members who study the work of past Wundersmiths and have a way of passing this knowledge on to Morrigan. And yet, Morrigan's studies, while a main plot point, largely take second place to the Hollowpox, a magical contagion that affects the magical human-animal hybrids (Wunimals) of Nevermoor. Morrigan, being devoid of political BS and typical assumptions about disease delves immediately into trying to solve the mystery of the Hollowpox, suspecting that the disease is not exactly what it seems and being driven by her heart of gold that just wants to earn her place in her newfound family. I won't reveal the ending, but suffice to say that Morrigan once again saves the day and surprises us all with the daring and unexpected choices she makes. We're left very much wondering what will happen next, and Townsend has set herself up perfectly for at least a few more books in the series - so here's to the next one! ( )

In Morrigan's third adventure, Nevermoor is besieged by a terrible disease that infects Wunimals. Is there anything in a Wundersmith's powers that can help with a cure? Meanwhile, Morrigan's education develops in new and surprising ways.

I continue to love this series. Morrigan is so believable -- sometimes she makes mistakes that make things worse, and then makes mistakes again. Sometimes, there are things that the adults have to handle. She has reasonable limits on her abilities, often because she is still learning. But she still has enough adventures to make the story exciting! And the secondary characters are so delightful. I continue to have a crush on Jupiter North. This book ends, not with a cliffhanger, but with a significant event that will have interesting ramifications for the rest of the series. I can't wait for the next one! ( )
