Let me just start off by saying that whatever I say won't do this book justice. So please just go read it yourself! In the spirit of Harry Potter, Michelle Harrison takes us on a wild ride full of mystery with her unlikely main character Tanya.
See, Tanya has a bit of a uncommon condition. She can see fairies. Not cute Tinker Bell fairies but vengeful devious fairies. When the fairies play a trick on Tanya it's the last straw for Tanya's Mom.

She sends her away to live with her grandmother. This Let me just start off by saying that whatever I say won't do this book justice. This is a terrible turn of events in Tanya's world but when clues start popping up in a 50 year old mystery Tanya may just get some of her question answered. I had heard some really great things about this book so when the chance came to read it of course I took it.
I was not disappointed! There was never a dull moment! When I wasn't reading this, I wanted to be reading this. All of the characters were very very well written! She was mature and confident when other 13 year olds would have run screaming. All the secondary characters were great too.
I loved Fabian and his Dad. I Loved the fairies also! There are tons of books out there about girls who see fairies. This one was no different but somehow it stood out! I really loved it. It read like a movie. I actually see this being made into a movie in the near future. I had a lot of fun reading this and I plan on buying the sequel from Book Depository because there's no way I'm waiting until the American release date!!

Like in Wicked Lovely, the fairies in this series are very evil, creepy, and richly described. They've been bullying Tanya her whole life for no good reason. Yet Tanya has an affection for these creatures which I found very confusing and out of character.

After one particularly bad night, Tanya is sent away to live with her grandmother for the summer and begins to uncover a great mystery of the past that will explain her own special abilities as well as her grandmother's personality disorder and her friend's grandfather's madness. The setting is a little confusing, I'm not sure if it's meant to be entirely contemporary or not. The book has some Tom's Midnight Garden overtones. Tanya is TSTL on more than one occasion. To the point that, when Tanya asks the question of herself, "Why hadn't she seen it sooner?
I enjoyed the Tam Lin overtones and the obviously well thought up fairy world, but if you want to read a book that handles both the concepts with true elegance and brilliance, try The Perilous Gard by Elizabeth Marie Pope. Let's face it, I'm starting to get fed up by bad YA fantasy novels, which seem to resemble a virus pandemy and start to exponentially replicate in the moment! Thankfully, there are still some specimens of the "almost" extinct tribe of authors, who really think a storyline through till the end and construct an original world within their own mind.
This is certainly true for this book. When I finally held it in my hands, I certainly thought "oh no, it's another one of those fairy-theme books accor Let's face it, I'm starting to get fed up by bad YA fantasy novels, which seem to resemble a virus pandemy and start to exponentially replicate in the moment! When I finally held it in my hands, I certainly thought "oh no, it's another one of those fairy-theme books according to the wellknown and used formula!
There's also no romantic plot and friendly fairy to be found, which was really something else compared to other books in this genre! No, the fairies depicted here are wilful and spitful characters with their own agenda and although Tanya has the second sight she doesn't interact that much with them and rather tries to avoid their company. Also, her relationships with her mom, who almost seems to abandon her in the beginning to the care of her grandma, who is an enigma herself, are quite unique and complex.

Then there is "Red", a runnaway girl with branded fairywings on her back due to the punishment of the fairies, whose parents died in a carcrash and she's on the quest to save her stolen baby brother from the fairy realm, which immediately picked my interest. I liked the fact, that this seems to play in a world there tragedy, accidents, and death are as well a part as love, hope, family and the book doesn't paint fairies as cute little flying girls with pink dresses, but more like we are: Also, the ending suits the storyplot and I can't wait to read "Red's" story in the sequel.

Accompanying her in her research is a silver charm bracelet, given to her by Florence, and which she later finds out is based on the thirteen treasures and includes little fake replicas of each of the treasures.
There is also a stained, brass compass, with a fascinating purpose, a silky red scarf, and an interfering, mischievous boy, mixed altogether with a cauldron of spine-tingling mysteries. I really enjoyed this book; it was captivating, intriguing, and simply magical. There is a definite mood that has been fashioned with skill. I loved this children's book. Great start to the first in the trilogy. I was always afraid Oberon the Doberman would get killed but he did not: I can't say much as it will spoil the book, but there is a great mystery involved and I'm looking forward to see what the author does in the next two books.
I wonder if Red gets saved and what happened to the baby. There is a lot more to the story. This is a good read for anyon I loved this children's book. This is a good read for anyone that loves fairies and you have the good and evil ones of course: Mar 29, Michelle rated it it was ok.
I was hoping for more. It was a convoluted story with contrived dialogue. And the main character needs a lesson in stranger danger. The fairies in this book were awful, violent and often gross. So, t I was hoping for more. This book wants you to know that Tinkerbell is not your friend. She will do her utmost to make your life miserable. I can understand the idea of challenging the norm. But many books have done it better. Nov 30, Madison M. It took me awhile to get through the first pages of the book, but after that it was getting better and I started to move a little faster through the book.
This is definitely a fantasy filled book, all about this girl who is continuously harassed and tormented by fairies.

Ya that is awesome parenting just sending your kid to her grandmother's house because you think she's insane as well as the fact that when she got there things just slowed down. This book took me a long time to read for this exact reason and the fact that we were reading To Kill a Mockingbird in our class. So I didn't love it, just liked it.

After one too many misdemeanours, she is sent to spend the summer at her grandmother's house.
In Tanya's mind this is an awful punishment, since her grandmother has never seemed to like her, and it means having to see Fabian, the caretaker's son.

Soon they are facing terrible d The 13 Treasures by Michelle Harrison is the tale of Tanya, a girl who has the ability to see fairies. Soon they are facing terrible danger, and it is simply a question of who will survive I consider myself incredibly lucky.
Thanks to them, I've had my eyes opened to a truly thrilling world of the Sidhe courts and mysteries unsolved. This a beautifully dark little book. I often find myself sceptical about fairies - they seem so do-goody and Tinkerbell-esque, in the most part. In this case, however, Harrison has tapped into folklore and scary fairytales to present us with fairies that have bite. They steal children, commit mischief and cause mayhem on a whim.
They are not friendly, or pretty - and I love them all the more for it. The fairy characters in this book truly leap from the pages. They are not alone in that respect. Harrison writes her human characters just as well - Tanya is resourceful and courageous; Fabian is geeky and intelligent; Red is punky and perfect seriously want to be reading more about her in the next two books!
Their voices are distinct and they felt fully-fleshed.
At first I found Harrison's prose fairly perfunctory, but it developed well over the course of the novel. This story takes place in the summer and, despite reading it in the cold of winter, I could almost feel the humid darkness of a stormy summer evening. It was beautifully done. This is a really timeless little book. It has echoes of Enid Blyton, what with the secret tunnels and the planning for adventures in a nearby woodland, and reminded me a little of the Carbonel series by Barbara Sleigh another children's novel where the magic and mundane collide.
I feel as though The 13 Treasures could be picked up and enjoyed by children in years to come, thanks to the ageless feel of the story. It could be argued that the adults in this novel were poorly presented, what with the secrets that they hid from Tanya, but I suspect they shall come into their own in future books - particularly Warwick. It would be incredibly nit-picky to suggest that this spoilt the story at all for me. As it is, I can say that I enjoyed this book a great deal. It was easy to read, with a fascinating and mysterious story, peopled by warm and realistic characters.

At hbout fifty years ago. It's up to Tanya, and her scientific friend Fabian to solve the mystery behind Morwenna Bloom. I would rate this book a five because I really liked the main character, Tanya. T times I could really relate to her. Like when Tanya feels like she can tell anyone about the fairies and how she can see them, it reminded me of the times when I couldn't tell certain things to certain people, and had secrets.
I could also relate to her when she lost her dog, Oberon in the woods, which relates to me because of the time I remember when my friend told me my hamster had escaped from his cage, but was later found. This book's genre is fantasy. I liked how it was written like a puzzle piece. YOu had to think about everything to solve the problem.
The Burke's Treasure Trilogy by Pamela Griffin
Like the fairies, and who Tanya really is. This book was about more than pages long. I really enjoyed 13 Treasures, and it will be one of my favorite reads. Jun 25, Karie rated it it was amazing. Firstly, I must say that for as many books as I read, it is few and far between that I find one that I simply do not want to avert my eyes from. Having a love of fantasy and faeries, I was drawn into this book instantly.
I found this book refreshing in portraying faeries in the mischievous light that they should be. I loved the setting of an old English manor house filled with layers of secrets and of the secrets of those who dwell within its walls. Michelle Harrison's writing was so vivid that Firstly, I must say that for as many books as I read, it is few and far between that I find one that I simply do not want to avert my eyes from. Michelle Harrison's writing was so vivid that I could see the details of the staircase landing, Tanya's bedroom, the wrinkled walnut face of a faery, and so many more details that were etched into my mind as I pilfered through the pages wanting more, but not in lack of want, which is what the majority of books I have recently read made me feel.
For those who gave this book an unworthy rating, they must have either lost the ability to imagine and dream, or they never had the ability to begin with. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves faeries, fantasy, for those who truly love to read for escape. I am tired of reading books filled with misery, doleful characters whose lives are a depressing burden. If you haven't forgotten how to dream or want to remember again, read 13 Treasures.
Jun 17, Catalina Dressing rated it it was amazing. I love the 13 Treasures trilogy!! Book 1 began the fun for me. But Tanya isn't any ordinary girl! She can see fairies!!! These fairies are not the typical sweet little pink and purple fairies most people automatically picture when they hear that word. Some are okay i guess. But some are evil. Luckily, Tanya is not alone. She is forced to go live with her grandmother for what seems like the longest summer of her life!
I really loved the des I love the 13 Treasures trilogy!! I really loved the description of all the fairies found there! The fairies know Tanya can see them and they definitely don't give her an easy time because of it. On top of that, Tanya's grandmother Florence isn't so fond of Tanya living there. The only plus is the butlers son, Fabian. Fabian cannot see fairies but he becomes aware that they exist.

Slowly they uncover the secret of the sudden disappearance of Morwenna Bloom, an event that took place years and years ago. This book is basically torture. Chapters ending with cliffhangers and topics being put to the side to make room for new ones! I absolutely love this book. I'm only 11 years old but this book made perfect sense but it wasn't exactly "dumbed down'. I would read this book 1 million times if I could!!

After "Fablehaven" I so badly wanted another series that can make me feel like a little girl. This story has a total different understanding of "fairies", which was fascinating and frankly quite scary. The first few chapters made me want to rethink reading this book. But the idea was refreshing and the story itself was quite the mystery! It has the haun This book was totally unexpected!!
It has the haunting manor, a forest, an old grandmother, the housekeeper and a young girl with special abilities.
It really can't get anymore cliche, but with a history not quite like others and a dark secret kept for centuries was very well played out through the book. And of course a heart warming ending that will beg your attention for the second book. View all 4 comments. A girl who can see fairies is persecuted by them for second sight.

Coming off of a couple of dud books, I was thrilled to be rereading The 13 Treasures. Middle grade fantasy is always right there for me when I need it. The 13 Treasures is super fun: I really don't have much to say about this novel, and certainly nothing bad. The plot chugs along at a nice pace, there's no moronic middle grade romance, and the fantastical elements are engaging.

I'm thinking of re-reading it soon: Nov 05, G. Lawrence rated it it was amazing. This is a wonderful book! I liked and enjoyed it so very much! The premise isn't something terribly original! It's about a girl that can see the fairies roaming the world all around us. It's been done many times before but this is the only one I actually liked. Harrison based her fairy realm on research she's done and it shows. She is incorporating the Seelie and Unseelie Court mythology, as well as ways to protect yourself against evil fairies that are rooted in folklore.
Her fairies are distinc This is a wonderful book! Her fairies are distinct personalities just like the characters. They are described beautifully, they are attributed unique gifts and habits and they can be really nasty and scary. In most off the books about fairies, they author 1 goes for the shock factor by sexing them up, like in Wicked Lovely , 2 comes up with something ridiculous and unbelievable as in Darkfever or 3 claims they are dangerous, evil and nasty but it's usually just talk; and then there's always the Disney version.
In this book Harrison chooses to stay traditional with their appearance, she keeps them detached from the human world, but still interacting with it, and when they decide to turn nasty they really do mean business. Those forest scenes were schilling. I loved the characters as well. I liked the friendship between Fabian and Tanya.
Treasure Mountain (Colorado)
I liked that they were two independent personalities, that didn't necessarily get along, but since they were brought together by circumstances they decided to try and work out their differences in order to achieve a mutual goal, and through this ordeal a beautiful friendship was build. Fabian was geeky and quirky, he was smart and bullheaded. He was very much what you'd expect a 12 or 13 year old boy to be and he was intriguing, mysterious and enraging at times.
