I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I was surprised at how well the story was crafted and how easy it was to sympathize with the characters. Never want to give too much away, but the 3rd book wraps it up very well.
A must read for the summer or anytime!! I loved 13 Treasures by Michelle Harrison! So much so, that I read it in one day even though it was nearly pages long. If you take nothing else away from this review, please take away that this story is amazing. Because I know that she will, love it I mean. It's just THAT good. I've been staring at this page for days. Trying to decide what to say and not say in this review.
Audiobook: 13 Treasures by Michelle Harrison
I want to tell you enough that you WILL pick up this book. Without telling you so much that there is no need to. It's a fine line reviewers walk, and I hate it. To tell or not to tell? As a reader, I hate reading them, so as a book blogger - I hate including them. So here I sit, staring at a blank page, wondering what I can type here to make you pick up this series.
Tanya finds a unique silver bracelet while cleaning out an old library one day. On this bracelet there are thirteen charms. She also finds newspaper clippings about a girl named Morwenna Bloom who mysteriously disappeared 50 years ago.

As Tanya and Fabian team up, and they decide to investigate this disappearance and to prove that Fabian's grandfather, Amos, is innocent. Tanya also finds and befriends a girl named Red or Rowan who saves changelings, or fairy babies exchanged with human babies, from dying in a hospital because their disguise spells wear off and they are killed for their looks. It is revealed that one can only have the "second sight" of being able to see fairies by having a changeling in their family. The changeling in Tanya's family turns out to be Elizabeth Elvesden.
Tanya, Red, and Fabian go out into the woods following Morwenna's hidden instructions in a poem, but it turns out Morwenna went into the fairy world 50 years ago and now wants to come back.

The reason Tanya's grandmother doesn't like Morwenna is because Tanya's grandmother Florence almost went into the fairy world herself, but didn't at the last second. Morwenna thought critically of her for that and threatened to take Tanya's mom into the fairy world. However, Florence tricked her into giving her 28 more years.

Now Morwenna wants Tanya. Bound in vines at midnight, Red causes a distraction and Tanya's dog eats Morwenna's fairy, Feathercap.
Red immediately starts to work on cutting the vines, but realizes it is too late. I will certainly be going on to read the next one in the series. I really liked the book. For many years children have disappeared from the nearby town, supposedly lost in the woods or down in the dangerous catacombs, but only Tanya guesses that malicious fairies may be involved, a discovery that places Tanya in terrible danger.
First-time novelist Harrison writes with great assuredness, creating a seductive setting and memorable, fully developed characters.
Tanya is a believable and decidedly imperfect heroine, and Fabian is an enjoyably eccentric if occasionally obnoxious sidekick. It's an excellent choice for fans of the Spiderwick Chronicles and other modern-day fairy tales. Ages 8— View Full Version of PW. Buy this book. Zeebra Books.
