Hollowpox: The Hunt for Morrigan Crow (Nevermoor #3) by Jessica Townsend

‘It can’t be a coincidence.  Something’s very wrong.’

In the world of Nevermoor, Morrigan Crow is finally learning mastery of her Wundersmith skills.  It is an exciting time for Morrigan.  But all is not well in Nevermoor: the Wunimals are becoming ill.  It is a terrifying illness, which spreads from Wunimal to Wunimal transforming them into vicious Unnimals and then leaving them hollow.  What has caused this illness, and can it be cured?

All members of the Wundrous Society are involved in either trying to take care of the infected Wunimals, looking for a cure or trying to keep the other inhabitants of Nevermoor safe.

And Morrigan?  She is learning new skills, but she’s exposed to danger at a time when her patron Jupiter North is preoccupied with the illness they’ve called ‘Hollowpox’. There is a promise of a cure, but is it genuine?  Can Nevermoor be protected?  Can the Wunimals be saved?

I have enjoyed each of the three books in this series and will now wait (patiently, of course) for the fourth instalment.  If you enjoy fantasy, then I recommend this series.
