Oh how I loved this and how I wish I read it sooner (and I don't know why I didn't). 'A Pinch of Magic' is one of my all-time favourite children's books so it was quite a trip to read Harrison's debut, 'The Thirteen Treasures'. I love that we have the hallmark Harrison traits - the creepy atmosphere, the superb writing that knows how to execute tension and suspense, and there are quite a few twists along the way!
Tanya is a likeable protagonist and it's hard not to feel for her. I love how smart she becomes over the novel, learning how to outsmart goblins and converse with fairies. Harrison's spin on these creatures is Grimm-esque and it helps build a gorgeous world in 'Thirteen Treasures'. The changeling aspect of this novel is also well-done and only adds to the intrigue - and oh, this series can go in a million places and I cannot, cannot, cannot WAIT to discover more of the magic.
Diving back to Harrison's debut only solidifies her stance as one of my favourite children's authors of all-time.
PS We've just finished it and my daughter has pulled the second book in the series off the shelf and begged me to read it to her because she is desperate to find out what happens next and she wants 'to share it with' me. Great stuff.
This book is recommended for older children up say between 10-16yrs of age.
At the beginning of the book it is quite confusing since it seems to head straight to the chase, but that's just in my opinion because i didn't get it as quickly as anyone else might have. But it soon unravels itself in a unique way. This book is really dramatic, especially towards the end! ☺ It is very well written, and I would have given it 5 stars if it weren't for the ending, where it made no sense for me. That is my personal opinion.
It's great how fairies are in the story, because it makes you wonder whether they do exist! And they do! But it makes it hard to believe because no one has ever seen a fairy before... Except for Tanya! With her extraordinary second sight!
This is a true adventure-fantasy book, that includes the thrills and the chills! And it is followed by another 2 books that build on this story. The Thirteen Curses, and The Thirteen Secrets! And i cannot wait until i get the next two!
An exciting adventure soon unfolds! Read it for yourself and find out!
She can remember the story/characters - as can I - so we get to discuss the books. Some readers do not absorb the books contents.and forget as soon as read.
