I really enoyed this third book. I struggled with book 2 but found this book to be more my style. I thoguht this book really did isolate morriagan in some way but also was very focused on a mystery of ilness that had some massive poltical elements and i loved it. It also had elements that was very past focused. I also really liked the other side plots. It was super quick read and really enaging. I am super exited for book 4! ( )

Synopsis:

A strange illness is affecting some of the population of Nevermore and Morrigan Crow must try to understand the cause in order to save her friends.

My rating:
4/5

This was my least favorite of the series so far, though it isn't a bad book. This book is very plot focused and I prefer to read character focused books. That heavily affected my enjoyment. There is a lot less of Morrigan interacting with her fellow students and a lot more of her learning about who she is and the powers she possesses. I don't think that's inherently bad I just think it isn't my favorite thing as a reader.

I did think the way that the school worked in this book was very cool and it was significantly different to the way things were working in the previous book. I had a good time seeing Morrigan grow I just wanted that growth to include more of the other characters I love.

One of my biggest issues with this series is that there isn't enough world building and, in some cases, character building. I know this is a middle-grade book and so there are a lot of things that can go unsaid but I still have felt, throughout the series, that too much is not explained. One of those things that had a huge impact on this book was the geography of the world. I couldn't quite wrap my head around not just where places were in relationship to each other but also how those places interacted with each other. We get glimpses that are story relevant but I wanted more to better understand some of the things happening in this book.

I did like how much more we learned about the Wundersmiths in this book. There was a lot of explanation about them and their history was vital to this plot.

Overall I don't think this was a bad book and I do love this series. I just wanted a bit more from it than I got which made me a little sad. ( )

I highly recommend this fantasy series, and I especially recommend the audiobooks! This was book three, and I really, really hope there will be more. The narration of the audiobooks is excellent, and I love the magical, living, extraordinary city of Nevermoor. The quirky and every-changing hotel that Morrigan lives in, her found family, and the many mysteries of her new life will completely pull you into Morrigan's world. ( )
