The cover alone made me pick this books up, not to mention it was buy one get one free at Waterstone's. Then I read the back, HELLO..... such a ME book! Sold!
GREAT book! I'm so in love with faerie stories, and this one does not disappoint. A unique story, full of adventure and intrigue. Kept me guessing. I really ate this one up. It's good! I really love Tanya and Fabian. I think they are 2 smart kids and fearless! I can't wait to see what adventures they get into in the sequel The 13 Curses!
