Across the Great Barrier by Patricia C. Wrede

Frontier Magic Book 2

At 18, Eff has finally gotten over the idea that she's unlucky because she's a thirteenth child. Her magic still isn't quite right. Despite that hindrance, she accompanies a professor from the college on a survey of plants and animals beyond the Great Barrier. The discovery of stone animals--not statues but petrified--is interesting and yet unexplainable. On the trip, Eff comes into her magic more by practice. But will it be strong enough to protect her from the dangers that are across the Great Barrier?

What I thought: Another magnificent installment in the Frontier Magic series. Eff's adventures and struggles with her magic are riveting. I couldn't put the book down. I can't imagine what will happen next, but I hope another book is coming soon.
