HOLLOWPOX is an engaging middle grade fantasy that takes the reader on a magical journey to the Wundrous Society. Morrigan is Wundersmith, a special kind of magical talent that has been really, really bad in the past. While she is finding her individuality, she is also trying to master the Wretched Arts of the Accomplished Wundersmith. At the same time, she and her fellow students in Unit 919 are being tested while also learning the Wundrous crafts.

A weird illness is spreading through the animals of Nevermoor, called the Hollowpox. Everyone fears this may be the work of a Wundersmith.

This is such an engaging and magical series, on par with other fantastic reads, like HP. The reader is completely transported to this school with unique elements and classes. I love the themes around friendship and morality that arise in this one, and I think they only serve to make this read even stronger. Morrigan is such an intriguing main character and together with her friends in Unit 919, the cast of characters is well-built and attention-grabbing.

Overall, HOLLOWPOX is a thrilling middle grade fantasy must-read. Would recommend for all ages who love immerse books, mysteries, and magical quests.
