Thirteenth Child by Patricia C. Wrede

Thirteenth ChildI was a little nervous when I picked this book up. I am not generally a fan of books that are set in a wild west type frontier. But I have to say that this book rocked. It tells about a world where magic is real, but it is much like the Wild West, frontier time. The story centers around Eff. Eff is a 13th child, the twin of a 7th son of a 7th son (meaning she is horribly unlucky, while her twin brother is horribly lucky…..supposedly). Her father takes a teaching position on the edge of the frontier where no one knows what Eff is. There is adventure, scandal, humor, and fun all packed into this book. This is such a spellbinding book that I could not put it down. Eff is a great character and the setting is fascinating. I hope she will write more in this universe. This is a great read for fantasy lovers.
