Guest Review: Thirteenth Child by Patricia C. Wrede

Wednesday, November 4, 2015
Why I chose this book:
 When I first read the synopsis of this book, I had just finished watching the movie Seventh Son, which is about a son who was the seventh son born to a couple, meaning he is born more powerful at magic than a normal person. When I saw Thirteenth Child was also about a world where belief of seventh sons exist I was drawn in to read it. Thirteenth Child takes a look at what it is like to be not only a sibling of a double-seventh son, but the thirteenth born, who are born more unlucky than a normal person, and the double-seventh son’s twin. It sounded like it had the promise to be full of magic, adventure, and the frontier, all of which I have enjoyed in previous books.

Synopsis:
Eff was born a thirteenth child. Her twin brother, Lan, is the seventh son of a seventh son. This means he's supposed to possess amazing talent -- and she's supposed to bring only bad things to her family and her town. Undeterred, her family moves to the frontier, where her father will be a professor of magic at a school perilously close to the magical divide that separates settlers from the beasts of the wild.
