Red's younger brother was kidnapped by fairies when he was a baby and she swore then to get him back. Now trapped in the fairy realm herself, if she is able to complete the quest given her, the heads of the royal court have agreed to not only find and bring back her brother, but also return them to their home. All that is needed is for Red to find the thirteen silver charms from Tanya's bracelet and present it to the court. Unfortunately, the thirteen charms in question are small and scattered across the real world.If the title rings any bells, it may well be due to the fact that you've heard of or read the first book [as I did, last summer], The 13 Treasures. Now, to be honest, one of the reasons I picked it up is the cover. Another is the dust flap. Also, and importantly, because it looked to be a good standalone novel. And it was.Usually, when I later discover that an excellent book [or movie] has an upcoming sequel, I get a touch depressed. Let's be honest-how many of the gratuitous sequels thrust upon the public are actually necessary? How many are the act of lame money grubbers? Then there are the people who create a book, realize they can make it into a series, end the series and then start thinking about revisiting the series. Marketing, marketing, marketing. Argh, argh, argh.Sorry. End rant.My point was actually that, upon learning that there was another installment after 13 Curses, I was not overwhelmed by disgust. I was so unexpectedly delighted by the surprise quality of the first one, that I eagerly purchased this one without the usual hemming and hawing. When I began to read it, however, I also began to wonder...This book starts out quite slowly. Red, who did not really interest me so much in the first book becomes our new lead character as she finally gets a proper shot at finding her brother. She is alone in the forest to start out and it is just plain dull--too slow for a start. As the action picks , so does the ease of engagement with the story. Because of this, a few chapters in, we're up to being almost as awesome as the first book. Almost.Altogether and on the whole, 13 Curses is an interesting read. There is action, adventure, mystery, plot, friendship, enmity, trials, tribulations, fairies, people..lots of fascinating things to keep you going. Also I suppose that I am a substantial fan of Harrison's writing.[Disclaimer: This is actually a terrible review because I waited far too long and worked at 3 in the morning, so my brain might be more than a bit punchy. I think I'll go to sleep now. Much love--Leslie.] ( )

I received this book for review, and was blown away by it’s gorgeousness!

I sat down and started to flip through it and was so sad to find out it was a BOOK TWO in a series! bah! You guys know me, and how I hate to read a series out of order, so I ended up setting it aside until I could get the first book in the series. I got 13 Treasures : book one (my review is here) and omgosh LOVED LOVED LOVED it. Uhm… Did I mention I like it? So as soon as I finished 13 Treasures, I started 13 Curses (and then life interrupted)!

Once I actually started reading 13 Curses, it only took me a day to whip through. It’s one of those “just need to see what happens here THEN I will cook dinner” type books. I loved it! Michelle Harrison (who is amazing!) did a great job of continuing the story with the second book. It picks up right where book one ended. I think the thing I like the most was the different “style” for book two. I mean, book one was more of a “mystery” type book. Book two is more of an “adventure/quest” type story. Book two also more follows Red and my favorite character from book one - Warwick! (Yes, I still see him as dirty Joaquin. See 13 Treasures review for clarification. lol)

Much like 13 Treasures, I absolutely LOVED this book. I loved that it sucks you in, and even though you KNOW you have “real life” “parenty” type things you need to be doing…you still feel compelled to sit there and just check to see what’s on the next page.

Character wise, all my favorites were back – and there were a few new ones to add to the mix! Poor Red. I wasn’t sure where her story would go, I mean she surprised the crap out of me at the end of book one. I’m glad she was more the focus of book two and we got to get to know her better. That child sure had a crap life, I tell ya. I love how strong and independent she is (and I won’t even tell you that I cried over her. Nope. I won’t tell you that!) I totally love Brunswick too. Like want to just hug him.

In my opinion, this is one of the best children's series that I have read in a LONG time. There is enough plot to keep fans of any genre interested. There is enough character development, so that no matter what types of character you are drawn to – there is someone in these books you will connect with. There is enough “story” to leave you dying for the next in the series.

I can’t WAIT for book three The Thirteen Secrets . I have googled my fingers off and can NOT find a USA release date. I will hate to have to order it from overseas, because our covers are SO much better – but dang it… I WILL!!!

I say “READ IT”. I promise you will NOT be disappointed. Great for kids and grownups, too!



THANK YOU to LITTLE BROWN for sending me this amazing book to review!!!!
THANK YOU, Michelle, for adding me on twitter! You are AMAZING!!
