Ok so I was about to start off my review by saying that it s kindof like Little House meets Harry Potter In fact I even looked up the number for Little House on the Prairie so I wouldn t have to type out the whole name and I could look super cool because the link would still work anywayThen after I looked up the number I started to read some of the other reviews a dangerous habit some of which read everybody keeps saying it s like Harry Potter meets Little House on the Prairie which is crazy because insert one or the other here is WAY betterWhatever I loved the book It centers around Eff for Francine a child who had the unluck to be born 13th She s blamed for anything bad that happens until her family moves out to an alternate American West and starts their life over again I got the feeling that this is only the foundation for the series and it s a pretty solid foundation The family tension was great the approach to magic was novel and the dilemma s our protagonist found herself in were believable ie not Mary Sueish And there was never a time when I was like why didn t they just cast that spell earlier That sometimes happens when I read fantasy So some people are upset because Wrede left out the Native Americans This is yet another reason why reading other people s reviews before you write yours is dangerous you feel compelled to counter argue attacks that might not be worth your time In this alternate America we have the first 3 Presidents Washington Adams and Jefferson then two others I can t remember but it ain t Madison Taft or FDR We have Lewis and Clark sailing up the ummm some river and then dying We ve got Ben Franklin who was a great magical inventor of sorts We ve got non concrete examples too the families heading out to start over some type of Manifest Destiny the Rationalists who seem to signify different religious and political views of the times I took them to symbolize the uakers and to some extent the Pennsylvania experiment but that s just me It seems like the Settlement Office sent out our version of Lewis and Clark as their expedition returns successful only having lost two men What we don t have are the Native Americans or in this case Columbians It seems some people are taking this as a slight against them but I don t think being passed over in a fictitious history for the sake of artistic integrity is worthy of offense Hear me out before you start calling me a racist anti Native American bigot I love Native Americans I wish I was one Or at least partly one I love diversity Wrede said something to the extent of I don t like the Native Americans as savages stereo type but neither do I like the current romanticizing of them either so I m eliminating the problem by taking them out You can find the exact uote here thanks to this reviewer and the link in her review The feeling I got from the Wrede uote though was not as others have contended that the Native Americans were the problem but rather the stereotypes of the Native Americans were the problem and maybe she couldn t write the book without falling back on one of those two stereotypes So rather than misrepresenting entire Nations she left them out So I say Kudos to her Secondly did I mention this is an alternate USA Lewis and Clark didn t die people Well ok They did Lewis was probably a suicide and Clark got sick but The Corps of Discovery didn t Point being if she wants to avoid certain issues in a fictional world she s free to do that If you want to write a fantasy book about Native Columbian magic that helps them keep the Avrupans out go ahead I promise not to be offended Which brings me to my third point maybe if she would have included them in there the book would have become about that issue than about Eff and frontier magic Just a thought Points being I feel like it is much ado about nothing Or much ado about relatively little at any rate Some people were so offended they took away their stars after it came to light Obviously that won t be me I LOVED this book and I ll recommend it to any fantasy or non fantasy fanAnd get used to it We re sure to see it around for a while If it s not already it will be the next Harry PotterTwilightHunger Games

Wrede Her will be a professor of magic at a school perilously close to the magical divide that separates settlers from the beasts of the wil. The Thirteenth Child tells the story of Eff Rothmer a thirteenth child Her twin brother Lan is a double seventh child a position of great magical power and potential Unfortunately for Eff the thirteenth child is said to be cursed hazardous to those around them and even evil Eff is terrified that she will one day go bad and hurt those around her so she tries desperately to control her magic and possibly even rid herself of it Eff must learn how to become her own person with her own magic no matter what others may thinkSet in an Old West that mixes the familiar buggies and frock coats with the fantastic steam dragons and spectral bears Thirteenth Child manages to be completely true and now The choices Wrede makes keep the book from being the over the top cheesy affair it could have been in someone else s hands She never overdoes anything or tosses in too many fantastic problems or elements Her fantasy elements are realistic and she always makes sure that her characters and Eff s development takes precedence Eff s voice and narration too are very enjoyable with fun little turns of phrase that pop I rarely say this when I read a good stand alone because I respect an author that doesn t milk it by turning it into a series and often thinning it out as a result but I really hope there s to come
