13 Curses (Thirteen Treasures #2)
The Thirteen Curses is a story of what happens when our world and fairy land come together. But this isn't the Fairyland of gossamer winged beings granting human wishes, rather one where the fairies are more like pixies or even goblins, teasing and tricking people, stealing human children and replacing them with their own. Rowan's brother has been taken by the fairies, to free him she must find the 13 missing charms of an enchanted bracelet, which were once treasures but have now become curses - ...more
Περισσότερη δράση και περιπέτεια στο δεύτερο μέρος της τριλογίας. Μια ιστορία αναζήτησης που διαβάζεται πολύ ευχάριστα και γρήγορα. Λιγότερο σκοτεινό και μυστηριώδες, εξίσου καλό όμως με το πρώτο.
What worked for me: The Faerie lore continues to follow traditional tales while expanding them. Red and Warwick actually get to attend the feast where the switch between the rule of the Seelie and the Unseelie Courts occur and I thought both courts were portrayed well. There is just enough darkness in the Unseelie to remain true to the myth without making it too dark for children. The Seelie, while not as dark, are shown to be just as heartless and unthinking of using huma ...more
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 soo...more
I started the book, instantly confused. But, it could easily be my fault for not reading the first book first. What it said was going over my head and made the experience even longer, nevertheless. When I was able to get myself through the first chapters, I am still not obsessed with it like I am with most books. The idea o ...more
After reading Michelle Harrison's fantastic debut novel The Thirteen Treasures, I was so excited to get stuck into The Thirteen Curses. Having now read both books, I'd go so far as to say that Harrison is up there with my favourite UK authors, and is now in the good company of Marcus Sedgwick, Sarra Manning and Lucy Christopher. Seriously, she's that good.
The Thirteen Curses is so hard to put down it's almost impossible, and aside from so ...more

continues. In this sequel we are reintroduced to Fabian and Tanya, who has the unusual gift of seeing fey in the human
world. Although Tanya has a piece of the story, this is about Red, and picks up her story with Red in the harsh and
dangerous fairy realm searching for her abducted brother. Keeping the readers’ interest, the story alternates amongst Red’s past beginning with the death of ...more
I don't feel the book was as strong as the first in the trilogy, despite some ways in which it felt the author had her feet under her a bit better. I know this is a contradiction, but it's a matter of the big picture over details. In details, the author did better. Characterization was more full, the fairy realm was better sketched, etc. But the book as a whole had a very simple prob ...more
The story follows Red, a young girl who is looking for her lost brother. The story flashes between 3 different viewpoints, Current Red, Past Red, and ...more
Granted, I was a bit woozy in the head for a week due to the severe cold I had, but it was a lovely read.

Voltamos ao mundo que Tanya descobriu existir próximo à casa da avó, mas os pais sempre acharam que não e a avó não queria que ela soubesse de nada, por isso também nunca havia dita nada a neta.
Mas neste livro, apesar dela aparecer e saber mais detalhes do mundo das fadas junto com Fabian, quem ganha destaque nesse livro é Red, uma menina que a princípio saiu do nada, mas tem sérios problemas com a fadas e vai fazer de tudo para ter seu irmão de volta ...more
