Morrigan battles a new evil as a strange, frightening illness takes hold of Nevermoor in this captivating and heart-pounding third book of the instant New York Times bestselling series.

Morrigan Crow and her friends have survived their first year as proud scholars of the elite Wundrous Society, helped bring down the nefarious Ghastly Market, and proven themselves loyal to Unit 919. Now Morrigan faces a new, exciting challenge: to master the mysterious Wretched Arts, and control the power that threatens to consume her.

But a strange and frightening illness has taken hold of Nevermoor, turning infected Wunimals into mindless, vicious Unnimals on the hunt. As victims of the Hollowpox multiply, panic spreads. And with the city she loves in a state of fear, Morrigan quickly realizes it's up to her to find a cure for the Hollowpox, even if it will put her -- and everyone in Nevermoor -- in more danger than she ever imagined.

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.
