The author has published three books in the Nevermoor series and is currently writing the fourth. There are will be at least six books in the series, though the author has expressed her hopes to have nine books by the time the story is complete.[1]

Original Series

The following is a list of the published, and soon-to-be published, books in the Nevermoor Series. The first novel takes place over a year-long period of time beginning around the first of the year. The second and third take place over shorter periods of time: the second taking place from the beginning of the new year to just after Hallowmas and the third beginning just before Christmas and ending sometime in autumn. On an Instagram Stories Q&A, Townsend said that "some books will take place over a shorter period of time. [Morrigan] certainly won't be 19 in the last book."[3]
