Across the Great Barrier (2011) Patricia C. Wrede

Across-the-Great-BarrierThe sequel to Thirteenth Child finds Eff coming to terms with her magic, and slowly discovering her dream–to travel the West, beyond the Great Barrier, studying the wildlife in that untamed area.

Luckily for her, the events of the previous book have given her some leeway as to her future, and the ability to work at the College menagerie.

“I think we’ve been taking the wrong tack,” Professor Jeffries said. “He doesn’t need calming down; he needs exercise.”

“Ride him North and feed him to an ice dragon,” Professor Torgeson suggested. She had strong opinions about wildlife, most of them unfavorable.

“An ice dragon would eat the rider first,” Professor Jeffries said absently.

Lan has gone East to study, as has William (the first friend Eff and Lan made when they moved West) so Eff is a bit at loose ends, especially as she still hasn’t completely controlled her magic.
Rating: 8.5/10
