The Far West (Frontier Magic Series #3) by Patricia C. Wrede

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia C. Wrede, the fantastic conclusion to her tale of magic on the western frontier.

Eff is an unlucky thirteenth child...but also the seventh daughter in her family. Her twin brother, Lan, is a powerful double seventh son. Her life at the edge of the Great Barrier Spell is different from anyone else's that she knows.

When the government forms an expedition to map the Far West, Eff has the opportunity to travel farther than anyone in the world. With Lan, William, Professor Torgeson, Wash, and Professor Ochiba, Eff finds that nothing on the wild frontier is as they expected. There are strange findings in their research, a long prarie winter spent in too-close quarters, and more new species, magical and otherwise, dangerous and benign, than they ever expected to find. And then spring comes, and the explorers realize how tenuous life near the Great Barrier Spell may be if they don't find a way to stop a magical flood in a hurry. Eff's unique way of viewing magic has saved the settlers time and again, but this time all of Columbia is at stake if she should fail.

I absolutely loved this book! I keep reading this turbulent trilology. The history of it is so perfect for this. I also loved the fact that its not just save the day, miss.eff is also a growing lady and has romance issues. The best of all worlds.

This trilogy is one of my favorite new reads of 2012. Patricia Wrede's worlduilding skills have clearly reached a new height. The setting is vivid and compelling. It is also refreshing to read a deeply developed character in a fantasy setting where the main thrust of the plot is not Saving The World. It is of vital importance to the protagonist and captured my attention instantly, but it's no epic. In conclusion, will read many more times. Highly recommend.

The characters can be one-dimensional, yetvthatbdoes not interfere with the enjoyabilty (of this book or the other two). Very good for a light read. Don't expect too much depth & you should be entertained.
