Morrigan Crow is not exactly what she seems, she is not your typical eleven year old, she is cursed, or is she? Everyone in her town thinks she is, including her family and that means that on eventide she will die, as all cursed children do. But her eventide is very peculiar, especially when the stranger shows up, Jupiter North, and takes her away to his town, illegally I might add and their adventures are just beginning there.
This is a awesome book full of adventure, suspense, and more twists than a roller coaster. This book is only slightly reminiscent of Harry Potter and Percy Jackson, but if you are a fan of those chances are you would like this especially if you are team Hermione or team Annabeth. The wondrous made up world of the free states reminds me of something out of Willy Wonka with its brolly rail and the smoking room (you don't actually smoke in it), and who can forget the mean old Wondersmith?This really is a book you won't want to put down.
