5.0 out of 5 stars A still delightful classic., 2 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can read this with pleasure as an adult and Jacqueline Wilson fans can happily identify with Harriet's friendship with the richer but lonely child skater.

This review is from: The Kindly Ones (Kindle Edition)
A precarious civilisation on an icy planet handles crime by shunning the criminals- anyone who breaks the rigid code of obligations and manners. A foreigner working as a mediator, and medium is caught up in the feud which will change the planet. Likeable characters and a good feel for the economics as well as the heroics of change and war.
I also enjoyed the Road to Earth series by this author, and will be buying more of her kindle books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful series, fresh and original., 11 Oct 2011
Frontier America with magic doesn't sound as good as this series is. The world building is first rate, with believable creatures, families and even governments. Some of the charm of this book is in the way it's a bit episodic, not a compact coming of age book like the first one of the series. This gives it the quality of a real autobiography of the period, and leaves me waiting impatiently for the next book, and the next look at the odd sect who refuse to use any magic and the joy in exploring a new and magical continent.


Thirteenth Child (Frontier Magic (Quality))
Thirteenth Child (Frontier Magic (Quality))
by Patricia C. Wrede
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
Price: 5.94

5.0 out of 5 stars Please write another, 8 Jan 2011
I enjoyed this so much and hope that it turns into a series- I really want to know how the sister who marries a non-magic user will cope- and how her children will cope with the magic ban.Also, there wasn't a Native American equivalent in this fantasy world, and that seems like a gap in this inaginary world.
I hope to see a lot more of Patricia Wrede's books on kindle and will snap themup as they appear.
