"This tale is fast-paced… Filled with twists and a vile villain, readers will enjoy touring London with Sarah and Owen as their guides." —Baryon Magazine

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I do not think The Thirteen Hallows deserves the thrashing it is taking here in the review section.

However it needs to be said that when I ordered this book it was because it was written by Michael Scott and my son loves the The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series which is a series for young readers. Note that The Thirteen Hallows is NOT a book for young readers AT ALL. Teenagers would enjoy it, but it does have some sexual content and with the overflow of violence i'd feel wierd recommending it to a teen.

I would say it makes more sense for it to be in the horror genre than the fantasy genre. You get alot of blood in this book. I mean a lot. As a matter of fact the characters are forever stepping in puddles of blood. You can smell the blood and the body fluids before you're halfway through with the book. Torture to the maximum level. The book is not for the faint of heart. Senior citizens having their skin flayed off is not everyone's cup of tea.

It's got a smidge of Warehouse 13 with the artifacts having powers. It's got a smidge of dark magic. More than a smidge of an action movie.

What it does really well, is the same thing that the Da Vinci Code did really well. There is no filler. It's all action. The chapters are no longer than 2 pages each. It's like the book is written for our short attention spans. I completely enjoyed reading the book. I hope it does well. If I had more money than God I'd buy the movie rights to it today.

I read this book, and it really held my attention. It was the kind of book you want to keep reading, because the story kept moving forward at a great pace.

When she helps save an old lady from some street thugs, Sarah Miller is doing more than stepping out from the horrified bystander role she played her whole life, and finds herself involved in a whirlwind of mystery, magic, and danger. Joined by the old woman's nephew, she is chased by police as well as the thugs, who are guided by an evil figure with dark powers. Sarah must come to understand the power of the relic passed into her possession, and must stop the evil plot.

This is a dark fantasy with lots of violence and death, but no more violence than you would get from many thrillers, like the Preston and Child novels, and while there is sex, none of it is terribly explicit. It's not for kids, but its really not terribly objectionable, and it is all fairly integral to the plot or used to effectively bring a sense of the danger that awaits if our protagonists are not careful and lucky.

This is the start to a series, apparently, and I, for one, am interested in following along. I found the ideas interesting, and the storytelling compelling.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The Thirteen Hallows are ancient artifacts. Apart they have power, but when brought together the power is heightened and can become deadly. The demons have been waiting for the chance to reassemble the hallows and gain the power. For many years, the hallows have been guarded by thirteen children of the blood of the original keepers. They received the hallows at the end of WWII. Now the keepers are being killed. One of the keepers convinces Sarah to take the the broken sword and keep it out of the grasp of the dark man and his mistress. By taking the sword, Sarah puts herself in the sights of the demons and is suspectd of their horrible murders. The police decide she is a serial killer and the book becomes a chase scene through Wales, Britain and history.

I was fascinated by the book because I love history and fantasy. The authors do a good job of entwining the legends of the Thirteen Hallows with the story. I found that fascinating.

However, the book is filled with grisly murders and sex. Although the hallows were formed in a culture of blood sacrifice, I found the murders in the opening of the novel unwarrentely explicit. I felt the authors were looking for sensationalism instead of telling the story. The number of characters was also disturbing since their only contribution to the story was to die in a horrible fashion.

The police officers and the investigation was another area of disappointment. The officers didn't do any of the things you would expect from and investigation. They decided that Sarah was a serial killer and the chase began. I found this unbelieveable.

I can't recommend this book. The material on the Hallows of Britain is interesting, but unless you like chase scenes filled with gruesome murders this is not a book for you.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The cover of this book is what first caught my attention. It is quite well done. Then the description of the story inside enticed me into making the decision that this was a novel I wanted to read. From seeing the sword I thought I would probably be encountering some fantasy aspects regarding swords and sorcery and I was all ready for that. A sword I got, some mystical elements I got, a good book I did not get.

It appears to me that these two writers decided that their collaboration for this novel would be based on shock and repetition. One of the elements of repetition was shown in the trite ending sentences of most of the chapters. I rolled my eyes and soldiered on. The problem for me regarding shock tactics was that once the element providing the shock had been revealed the repetition of that element kept me from being shocked any longer. Decapitation? Sure, if once is a shock why not repeat it many more times. Blood and gore present in such large quantities that the carpet squishes when it is stepped on? Sure, only after that first time repetitions become completely anti-climactic. Have a character who can only be transported to the astral world by holding back the ultimate moment of sexual pleasure? Sure, just have The Dark Man (Ahriman) and his wife, psychic and witch (Vyvienne) engage in sex so often that it becomes a totally meaningless exercise. Was it simply laziness on the part of the authors which kept them from finding other methods for Vyvienne to use to travel out into the astral world? Because that is how she continued to pinpoint where the objects, the Hallows, and the horrible henchmen were located at that moment.
