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.
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.
