To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I really enjoyed this book. But I do suggest it for at least 14 year olds and up because, as the name says '13 CURSES' and so some of the curses are quite scary. Even my older cousin who is 17 still found it slightly scary...
I am into adventure story's so this was my kind of book! I like how red finds out so many facts about herself in it and Tanya and Fabian help her to find the charms! I would recommend this book and the others in the series to people who like adventure and mystery!!!
I was introduced to this series when my 9 year old niece chose 13 Treasures to read. We sometimes share books so that I can keep abreast of what young readers are interested in today. I'm glad that I read it first because I'm not sure that it is appropriate for her to read; it's rather frightening and a VERY different (and, I must say, warped) view of fairies. However, I persisted in the reading and, by the middle, I was so interested in the story and the characters that I ordered 13 Curses as soon as I finished. The story in the second book was captivating from the beginning. As I indicate in my title, it draws you in so that I had a hard time putting it down...almost like being drawn into a fairy ring. I'm now looking forward to reading the third book. However, I still think that it's not appropriate for my niece at this age. The story concepts are very dark and some of the descriptions are rather disturbing. While she is an avid, capable reader and has even read some of the Harry Potter books, she has a very vivid imagination and might be disturbed by some of the things that happen. I'd like her to think, right now, of fairies as being pretty and gentle creatures. I'll put the books away and give them to her at a later time.
I think Michelle Harrison did an amazing job with this book. It definitely shows that if fairies were real they wouldn't be all happy and always laughing, they would be evil fairies too. It put a spooky twist on the story.
I read the first book of this series and it was great, but this was an amazing sequel! I've bought the next book, and definitely reading it. Thanks for reading my review, hope you want to read the book too!
