13 is a young founderling that couldn’t remember his true name. It wasn’t until he found his first friend that he began to take risk, go on adventures and try to look for his family.
This was interesting book filled with talking animals, elves, and humans. Bartok created a beautiful and heartbreaking world for these characters. The harsh and grim relativity of daily life really allowed Arthur’s (formerly 13) hope and innocence to shine.
Unfortunately what through me off with the book was the passing. We spend the majority of this book setting up the world, introducing so many characters that the ending felt very rushed. This book was over 400 pages and I am not sure it was all needed.
I gave this book a C.
I devour worlds with each new book. I am making up for lost time as a late bloomer of the reading world.
