FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF A PINCH OF MAGIC, A SPRINKLE OF SORCERY AND A TANGLE OF SPELLS COMES THE SECOND INSTALLMENT IN ANOTHER MAGICAL TRILOGY.
Full of magic, intrigue and pure adventure, this is the perfect series for fans of Katherine Rundell, Abi Elphinstone and Sophie Anderson!
The Thirteen Treasures have become the Thirteen Curses.
When fairies stole her brother, Red vowed to get him back. Now trapped in the fairy realm, she begs an audience with the fairy court where she strikes a bargain. Her brother will be returned - but only if she can find the thirteen charms of Tanya's bracelet that have been scattered in the human world. Returning to Elvesden Manor, Red is assisted by Tanya and Fabian and a desperate hunt begins.
Soon they make a shocking discovery. The charms now have twisted qualities of the thirteen treasures they represent... and the longer they are missing the worse the consequences will be. Can Red, Tanya and Fabian find all the charms? And even if they do, will the fairies keep their promise?
