This is book number 2 in the Nevermoor series.
Wundersmith does not suffer from second book syndrome. I loved this equally as much as the first one. And maybe a tad bit more bc I learned more about Morrigan and Nevermoor itself. In this book, one can really amble through Mog's schooling and new "brothers and sisters" as well as the mysteries and wonders of Nevermoor. And, Ezra is becoming more of a complex villain through it all. I suspect (and hope) that there will be a book for each year of Mog's schooling. I can't wait.— Audrey H.
