Praise for Thirteenth Child:
"I plunged in and couldn't put it down until I finished. It's a
fascinating adventure in an America where an 'unlucky' thirteenth
child finds her own magic on a frontier where the dragons and the
mammoths play." - Tamora Pierce [star] "Effortless...The
culminating adventure of this volume ties up Eff's coming-of-age
with a frontier-style bow while leaving her poised for more
adventures-many more, readers will hope." - Kirkus Reviews, starred
review "Fantasy readers looking for a great new series to get
wrapped up into will appreciate and enjoy Wrede's cast of
characters and all the implications magic holds with them."
