(Frontier Magic, Book 3)
Author: Patricia C. Wrede
Release date: August 1, 2012
Published by: Scholastic Press
Eff is an unlucky thirteenth child...but also the seventh daughter in her family. Her twin brother, Lan, is a powerful double seventh son. Her life at the edge of the Great Barrier Spell is different from anyone else's that she knows.
When the government forms an expedition to map the Far West, Eff has the opportunity to travel to farther than anyone in the world. With Lan, William, Professor Torgeson, Wash, and Professor Ochiba, Eff finds that nothing on the wild frontier is as they expected. There are strange findings in their research, a long prairie winter spent in too-close quarters, and more new species, magical and otherwise, dangerous and benign, than they ever expected to find. And then spring comes, and the explorers realize how tenuous life near the Great Barrier Spell may be if they don't find a way to stop a magical flood in a hurry. Eff's unique way of viewing magic has saved the settlers time and again, but this time all of Columbia is at stake if she should fail. (Summary from Goodreads)
Ok, we know that this came out August 1st! BUT, WE didn't know that and here's why...there hasn't been a cover on it on Goodreads! It's been on our TBR list FOREVER because we read the 1st and LOVED it, then also got the 2nd at a Scholastic Book Fair when it came out as a paperback to match the 1st ones we had. Except when we would each scroll through our obscenely GIANT TBR list it never had a cover so we've just assumed that it still wasn't even close to coming out yet! AHHH! Now the cover shows up and it already came out 2 MONTHS AGO! *smacks forehead* So we decided to do a cover reveal anyways because we ADORE this series! If you haven't tried it, you should!
