While visiting her grandmother's house, an old photograph leads Tanya to an unsolved mystery. Fifty years ago a girl vanished in the woods nearby - a girl Tanya's grandmother will not speak of. Fabian, the caretaker's son, is tormented by the girl's disappearance. His grandfather was the last person to see her alive, and has lived under suspicion ever since. Together, Tanya and Fabian decide to find the truth. But Tanya has her own secret: the ability to see fairies. And, after disturbing an intruder in the night, it emerges that someone else shares her ability . . . The manor's sinister history is about to repeat itself . . .
'The Thirteen Treasures boils with the kind of fairy that is far worse than Puck..what could be more cheering to curl up with.' Amanda Craig, The Times 2008 'What a great first novel ... the story was clever and fresh with a great twist. I will definitely be hand-selling this to all the Holly Black fans I know.' Gina,Waterstones 'The story itself is both dark and gripping and the imagery is fantastic.' thebookbag.co.uk 'Flows with energy from page to page with a magical enchanting story which kept me gripped… it's a little treasure and the first of many I hope.' Mr Ripley's Enchanted Books (blogspot) 'This is an unmissable treat. Combining the faery of Spiderwick with a truly nail-biting thriller, this is first rate entertainment for children (and adults)' Books Monthly.co.uk 'This is a really exciting read, full of thrills, mysteries and menace.' Primary Times
