Having been born on Eventide, the unluckiest day for any child to be born, she's blamed for all local misfortunes, from hailstorms to heart attacks--and, worst of all, the curse means that Morrigan is doomed to die at midnight on her eleventh birthday.

Morrigan Crow tahu dia akan mati saat berulang tahun ke-12, tepat pada hari Eventide. Seperti halnya anak-anak lain yang lahir pada tahun yang sama, dia dituduh sebagai penyebab semua kesialan di kotanya, dari kematian, cuaca buruk, kekalahan dalam lomba, sampai makanan basi. Namun, siapa sangka Eventide tiba satu tahun lebih cepat? Dan, siapa sangka pula, bukannya Maut, malah Jupiter North yang menjemputnya, membawa Morrigan kabur ke kota rahasia, Nevermoor. Sejenak, Morrigan merasa aman. Namun, itu hanya sementara, karena tantangan lainnya telah menanti. Sebagai penduduk ilegal, satu-satunya cara bagi Morrigan untuk tetap tinggal adalah menjadi anggota Wundrous Society. Hanya sembilan anak yang akan diterima di akademi bergengsi bagi anak-anak berbakat itu, jadi, bagaimana mungkin Morrigan bersaing dengan ratusan anak hebat lainnya saat dia sendiri bahkan tidak mengetahui kemampuan yang dia miliki? Morrigan hanya ingin terlepas dari kutukan Eventide. Dia hanya menginginkan tempat yang bisa disebutnya rumah, orang-orang yang bisa dianggapnya sahabat dan keluarga. Sebegitu sulitkah?

Immortal Wishes is a powerful ethnographic rendering of religious rituals and ascetic practices at the Akakura Mountain Shrine in northern Japan. Inspired by a vision of a dragon arising out of Akakura Mountain, a peasant woman founded the Shinto sect in 1921. Since then, worshippers, predominantly women, have come to the shrine to participate in what can be years, or even decades, of a regimen of shugyo (disciplined practice), which often involves arduous physical tasks including treks up the mountainside. Ellen Schattschneider argues that the ascetic discipline and rituals at Akakura Mountain Shrine are generated by a complex set of social and historical tensions, some of which reflect the uneasy status of the surrounding area within the modern nation's industrial and postindustrial economies. Yet, Schattschneider explains, spiritual practice at the Akakura shrine is also motivated by the efforts of women and men to comprehend and manage contradictory obligations and desires related to personal health, family, and work. Schattschneider participated in shugyo herself, and Immortal Wishes is full of details drawn from conversations, events, climbs, interviews, and outings. She relates the histories of the practice and individual practitioners, annual rituals, various steps and elements involved in specific shugyo, the exchanges of offerings, legendary dreams, and the conflicted issues of succession raised by the founder's death. In describing how personal loss and travail are transposed onto the mountain landscape as spiritual transcendence is sought through worship and practical labor, Schattschneider reveals the deeply embodied nature of a religion physically labored at with a subtlety and intensity as sensual as it is spiritual.
