In adversity lies strength beyond imagining.
Abandoned as a baby, young Emelyn’s life as a housemaid in the quiet village of Fallow is unremarkable—and empty. That is, until a host of magical creatures arrives and inflicts terrible misdeeds on the townsfolk. Inexplicably immune to their enchantments, Emelyn joins a pair of Magi intent on stopping the cause of the trouble—and who claim to know of her parents, promising Emelyn answers to a lifetime of questions.
But the answers Emelyn seeks prove to be more elusive than she hoped, and the world outside Fallow more perilous than she imagined. Magical creatures roam the land over, attacking yet another town before coming after Emelyn. The key to her survival—and finding her family—lies deep within her, if only she can conquer her doubts and believe she is more powerful than she ever dreamed.
In a journey that explores facing one’s fears amidst the uncertainties of an unknown world, The Thirteenth Tower is a magical tale of discovery, growth, and of love’s enduring strength.
This book was interesting. I want to write a good review but had to sleep on it before writing everything down. I could decide if I just thought it was ok or if I enjoyed it. Still up in the air about it.
It was an unusual concept that kept you wanting to learn more about Emelyn and her life. I did enjoy Cobbe a lot. She was fun to read but didn’t have many lines and was not a main person. Emelyn went threw everything that you could want to read about and grew to be part of whom she is suppose to be. We do find out about her parents and she wants to look for more of her family to understand herself better. That is where we are left off.
I would say that I would recommend this book but only if you want something unusual with magic, the Art as it is known in the Thirteenth Tower, in it and that has a bit of betrayal.
