13 Treasures by Michelle Harrison

Tanya is no ordinary girl. She can see fairies. But not the fairies we imagine. Evil fairies who cast spells on her, rousing her from her sleep and propelling her out of bed. At wit's end with her daughter's inexplicable behavior, Tanya's mother sends her away to live with her grandmother at Elvesden Manor, a secluded countryside mansion on the outskirts of a peculiar Essex town.

There is plenty to explore, as long as Tanya stays away from Hangman's Wood- a vast stretch of forest, full of catacombs and notorious for people losing their lives. Fifty years ago a girl vanished in the woods, a girl Tanya's grandmother will not speak of. As Tanya learns more about this girl, she finds herself dangerously close to vanishing into the fairy realm forever.

Debut author Michelle Harrison weaves an intricate mystery into a beautiful and haunting fantasy that captures a rich world of fairy lore where only the color red can offer protection.

I have absolutely no complaints except that iwish it was longer or the author made a sequel! If you didnt know to buy this or not, hesitate no more ,buy this book! I just suggest buying the actual paper book because its 4 dollars cheaper, but if you cant wait then i dont blame you.

I was 12 years old when i read this book, and 13 treasures. I am now 13 years old, and i have never found or read a book that is quite like this one. Considering my love for fairy tales, i am always hoping that i will find a book like this one. I especially like the detail in describing the characters.

I really enjoyed this books. The characters were well developed and the plot twisted in many ways. It keeps you interested until the very last page and you won't want to put the book down. I have read the trilogy several times and each time I am drawn in. This book is a real page turner!

I love it so so so so so ... so much. It is about a girl who can see faries. They are not nice faries but evil ones. She can the faries with a second sight. There are others like her but some people cant see the faries. I want the next book the 13 curses.

The whole series is simply amazing. I love the characters, the story lines and the plot twists. I love how Michelle made us see the fairies we didn't even know about before, the fairies who are similar to humans. They suffered, get angry and not always kind. And I love the idea of the shapes of the treasure and what each of them represent and possessed. Splendid

I chose this book because a friend recommended it to me, The book looked very interesting and it was like nothing I’ve read before. I was very excited to read a different kind of book than I am used to reading. After reading this story I was amazed I love this book. The book was much different than I expected it to be I thought it would be like an okay book, but it was great. This book was not what I expected at all I say this in a good way. The book is about a 13 year old girl named Tanya, and she swears that there are evil fairies haunting her. She feels like there are fairies surrounding her in her room at night and if she moves she will get attacked by these evil creatures. She also finds that when she moves she gets attacked by these fairies and she finds herself sitting on the ceiling. THen she has to move to her grandparent’s house where she finds much more to explore in the woods. She also discovers the secrets about the fairies. This book is fantasy so if you like fantasy books this is the book for you. The author of this book is Michelle Harrison. I liked this book because it is very well thought out. This book sort of reminds me of the book Fablehaven By Brandon Mull. These books are very similar and they are both very good books.I also liked this book because it got right to the point. I hate books that take forever to actually get to the point you won’t have this problem with this book. Literally on the first page it gets right to the point. That is what I loved about this book. This book was great you should definitely take time to read this book
