Book Review: Hollowpox, The Hunt for Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I don’t even know how to review this except to say that I am absolutely in love with this world and these characters. It’s like Harry Potter, but better.

This book has Morrigan facing bigger, nastier things than previous books, which is where Ezra Squall comes in. Speaking of Squall, he’s the best villain I’ve come across lately because besides being scary and evil and whatnot, he also shows a softer side to Morrigan. He never lies to her, and even helps her sometimes. Jupiter North is absolutely the best patron / father figure and Morrigan has grown so much since he saved her from Jackalfax that night. Hawthorn and Cadence are staunch allies and friends, the entire staff of the Ducalion (and the building itself) are there for her no matter what – something the Wundrous Society can’t really say. Suffice to say I will definitely be rereading the first three books as I anxiously await the fourth installment.

Oh! And while romance isn’t something that’s been in any of the books thus far, this one had a really sweet LGBT+ moment near the end that I won’t spoil but that gives me hope for when Morrigan and her crew get a bit older and start thinking about those things.
