[Review] - Thirteen by Kelley Armstrong

Title: Thirteen
Author: Kelley Armstrong
Series: Women of the Otherworld
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Release Date: July 24, 2012

Summary:  A War is brewing--the first battle has been waged, and Savannah Levine, a young witch of remarkable power and a dangerous pedigree, is left standing albeit battered and bruised. She has rescued her half brother from supernatural medical testing, but he's fighting to stay alive. The Supernatural Liberation Movement took him hostage, and they have a maniacal plan to expose the supernatural world to the unknowing.

Savannah has called upon her inner energy to summon spells with frightening strength, a strength she never knew she had, as she fights to keep her world from shattering. But it's more than a matter of supernaturals against one another--both heaven and hell have entered the war; hellhounds, genetically modified werewolves, and all forces of good an evil have joined the fray.

Uniting Savannah with  Adam, Elena, Clay, Paige, Lucas, Jaime, Jeremy and other lost-but-not forgotten characters in one epic battle.

Thoughts: I loved it! Out of the last three books, this one is the best. It took me a while to enjoy Savannah's narrating, but I eventually warmed up to her. It was great seeing the  characters of Women of the Otherworld series back for one last story.

Thirteen is everything I've come to love about WOTO. Fast paced action, danger with a good helping of romance. There is one character appearance that will definitely shock readers. I didn't see it coming at all.  It's sad to see this series come to and end, it's one of my favorites. But I'm  satisfied how it concluded and I think fans of the series will feel the same way.  For those readers hoping for more of Savannah and Adam, Ms. Armstrong doesn't disappoint.

Score: 5 Stars
