13 Curses is a thrilling sequel to 13 Treasures by Michelle Harrison. 13 Curses is about a girl named Rowan (Red as she is preferred to be called.) Red is a brave adventurous girl. She has had the life of an orphan with her baby brother James since her parents die in a tragic car accident which she blames herself for. Rowan has been in the foster home for a couple of weeks when things go very wrong. This book is a bitter sweet read. Its characters are well described and they are surprising at times. This book also switches between characters and explains memories from the past. I would recommend this book to anybody who loves a good mystery and fantasy. I loved this book because it held unexpected secrets and deadly turns and it is interesting to see how Reds life turns out.
