The Trials of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Morrigan believes she is cursed to die on her twelfth birthday but imagine her surprise as she is whisked out of her world, into Nevermoor. Once there, she begins her quest to be apart of the Wonderous Society, competing through a series of trials meant to bring out the best--and worst--of her character. She has odds stacked against her as an outsider, but can she rise up to claim her spot?
This delightful tale is brought to life through its audiobook production. Gemma Whelan does a masterful job of bringing to life this complex audiobook production. The use of music and sound effects further enhances the listener's experience of Townsend's imaginative tale of Morrigan Crowe, Jupiter North, and the rest of those competing for a chance to be in the Wunderous Society, Unit 919. Whelan's voices are clear, distinct, and add richness to each of the characters, and provides depth to them as well. I highly recommend the audiobook adaption to anyone who is new to audiobooks, as this is a wonderful taste as to what an audiobook can add to a fantastic story. I could not imagine experiencing this book through any other means than the audiobook and I look forward to continuing the series through its audio editions.
