The Thirteenth Tale is very well written and combines the past and the present in a captivating manner. The author leads the reader down a pathway of intriguing events. The reader finds himself heading a certain direction, and then suprisingly another. The author paints the scenes and the characters with their deep emotions, in a superb and mysterious way, bringing the story to life. I was spellbound by this book and will be looking forward to more works from this author.
