    One thought on “The Thirteen Treasures of Britain”

    1. I really enjoyed this book. It took awhile to grab my attention, but once it did, I was interested to see where the main characters would go next and who they would meet.

    2. I have to say, this was catchy. Not my usual thing, I won a copy through SPFBO giveaway. But it did hook me and I am excited to see what befalls the characters in the next book. Well done!

    3. Actual rating: 3.5 starsI doubt I would ever reach for this book if I wasn’t actively participating (as a fan of the initiative and a reader) in SPFBO contest. Some time ago I asked for SPFBO book recommendations on r/fantasy and Jennifer M. Baldwin was the only author who stopped by to recommend her own work. Probably other authors thought it would be too much self-promotion but, truth be told, I was counting on authors dropping by to promote their own work. Jennifer did and so I bought her b [...]

    4. This was not what I was expecting at all. I think the mention of awakening in ‘85 in the summary, made me think this was going to be an urban fantasy or something similar but it actually reads more like a fairy tale. I couldn’t help but think of Disney’s The Sword and the Stone when Ambrose (I loved Ambrose) and the other talking animals appeared, and found myself kind ofboopity boopingalong with them on their journey to rescue Merlin. Don’t let the talking animals fool you into thinking [...]

    5. I really enjoyed this book, the different "worlds" i guess you can say was a very interesting part and yes at time i got slightly confused by the change but i quickly caught on to what was happening and the form of magic in this was a great take too and how Merlin got his magic from nature itself was an interesting detail and and glamor magic just seems really awasome but possibly dangerouse too depending on the use of it but it makes me wish someone could use magic that way in reaility, and the [...]

    6. This book is written in a style that feels very much like a fairy tale. It's a charming story full of adventure that whisks the reader to many exotic settings. The characters, human and otherwise, were fun and held my interest. One of my favorites was the owl. Due to the number of talking bird and animal characters, this book will appeal to younger readers, but is equally engaging to adults who enjoy a clean, light-hearted fantasy novel.
