Thirteenth Child by Patricia C. Wrede

Thirteenth Child

Patricia E. Wrede

5/5 Stars

This book was very enjoyable. The story line was very interesting and it had very good characters. The book kept my interest throughout the whole story. It also in a genre that I like: fantasy. I found the time picked for the book interesting because I have not read a book in that era (The American frontier) that also used magic in it. I also found it interesting that the mix of normal, magic, and prehistoric animals were used for the wild life. I found the different schools of magic interesting.

Deeper by Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams

4/5 Stars

I chose to read this book because it was a sequel to a good book I read called Tunnels. Tunnels, was a suspenseful book and its sequel Deeper was even more suspenseful than the first one. The premise of this book is that the three main characters are searching for Will’s adoptive father who got lost in the first book Tunnels. Most of the action takes place in the “Deeps” a place where people from the Colony (a subterranean city) are banished to by their oppressors the Styx. Unfortunately, at the end of the book the author seemed to go on a needless killing spree with his characters. Deeper was still a very good read but unfortunately it fell apart at the ending, which was a disappointment from the first book Tunnels.

The Parent Trap

4/5 Stars

When two girls, Hallie Parker a California girl and Annie James and proper London miss, both meet at the same summer camp they realize they are twins! The girls decide to switch places to get their parents back together. It’s not as good as the original classic but I think it is really funny!
