Book Description

The #1 New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong delivers the novel her fans have been clamoring for: Thirteen, the epic finale of the Otherworld series.

It’s been more than ten years, a dozen installments, and hundreds of thousands of copies since Kelley Armstrong introduced readers to the all-too-real denizens of the Otherworld: witches, werewolves, necromancers, vampires, and half-demons, among others. And it’s all been leading to Thirteen, the final installment, the novel that brings all of these stories to a stunning conclusion.

A war is brewing—the first battle has been waged and Savannah Levine 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 and evil have joined the fray.

Uniting Savannah with Adam, Paige, Lucas, Jaime, Hope, and other lost-but-notforgotten characters in one epic battle, Thirteen is a grand, crowd-pleasing closer for Armstrong’s legions of fans.


Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Kelley Armstrong:

"Sexy, smart, and action packed!"-Richelle Mead, New York Times bestselling author of the Vampire Academy series

"There is never a slow moment...or a false line in Armstrong's writing."-Charlaine Harris,New York Times bestselling author of Dead and Gone and other books in the Sookie Stackhouse series

Review

Praise for Spellbound:
"Armstrong keeps the focus on hip, impulsive, and likable Savannah, building suspense with plenty of plot reversals and betrayals. Fans of the series won't want to miss what is clearly the first battle in an Otherworld war." Publishers Weekly "Powerfully written.... Moves along at a sprightly clip, and Armstrong's senses of humour and suspense are spot on. She knows when to break the tension and when to ramp it up, as evidenced by the climax and dénouement. The reader who gets through that without feeling a bit ragged might want to be checked for a pulse."
The Globe and Mail

5.0 out of 5 stars It Was A Really Good Book... But July 25, 2012
Format:Hardcover
I gave it five stars but...

Okay. It gets five stars because as a stand-alone book it deserves five stars. The action alone entitles it to the full five stars. But, if you aren't grounded in the former twelve books (maybe not all of them- at least a few important ones), then you'll really miss the impact of the book.

See, here is where a review gets tricky. I can only talk about my tiny, limited opinion about this single book that finalizes a series that has had 13 books, quite a few novellas and short-stories, a graphic novel, and so many characters. Heck, Kelley Armstrong even has a hopping web-site. I'm going to try and mostly separate this one book from the series.

The positives: a favorite universe, beloved characters doing their thing, the return of old enemies, and basically good vs. evil battle to control the end of the world. Not too shabby. And, Kelley Armstrong has a real talent for action sequences and plotting. Which helps because the majority of this book is on the run. They fly from one danger to the next in a matter of sentences. She is a great writer. She seamlessly narrates this massive, multi-state and multi-dimension battle through solid narrative, excellent first-person points of view, and dialogue. And, she hangs onto the emotional intimacy among her characters despite the heavy action sequences. This is an author who LOVES her characters and they have very tight relationships. And she bounces from character to character amazingly well. It is never clunky. It really is a solid thriller.

The negatives. Okay, this is where we get into matters of preference- I'm not a huge Savannah fan. Out of all the Women of the Otherworld, Savannah is my least favorite. Which makes sense, to me.

Format:Hardcover
=====================================================
Contains spoilers for all previous 'Otherworld' books
=====================================================

`13' is the thirteenth and final book in Kelley Armstrong's epic urban fantasy `Women of the Otherworld' series.

This is the all-star final showdown, slow-clap finale to Armstrong's much loved series. This is the book fans have been waiting for, but I've got to say ... I was not impressed. Much as it pains me to admit.

Savannah Levine is again narrating, rounding out her POV books to a nice trilogy - `Waking the Witch', `Spell Bound' and now bringing it all together with `13'. But even though this is, again, Savannah's book, every previous female protagonist gets one chapter devoted to them, so throughout the book we're switched to Elena, Hope and Paige's point of views.

Armstrong certainly has made `13' an epic finale (maybe a little too epic?) with supernatural in-fighting between all supernaturals. The Supernatural Liberation Movement want to `out' supernaturals (and presumably take over the world?) but they have a fight on their hands, against those who would prefer to keep their secrets. So all species are drawn into this one - vampires, werewolves, witches, psychics, necormancers, angels and most especially demons (many of whom are watching over their human offspring, and hedging bets on which side will come out victorious). Savannah Levine seems to be in the middle of it all - a powerful witch with a demon grandfather, deceased witch mother and warlock father who now have ties to the otherworld.

If it sounds like there's a lot going on, that's because there is.

2.0 out of 5 stars Neat and Tidy Ending - Fell Flat August 15, 2012
By Ravenly
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really really wanted to love this book. I had been waiting for it and I guess I expected it to be epic. It wrapped up everything very nicely and made sure to include every character and loose end. It was just all so very neat and tidy that it felt like the story outline with zero emotion and intensity that I found in the previous books.

I felt absolutely nothing for Savannah and Adam - that had to have been the most ho hum romance in the series. It could have easily been left out.

As for the unfolding and conclusion of the main plot - I wasn't really worried. In fact, I struggled to finish this book. I must have read about 10 books in between chapters and only finished this out of duty and a sense of needing to hurry up and get it off my kindle. Really too bad as there have been many books in this series that I thoroughly enjoyed reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Stellar Conclusion July 25, 2012
Format:Hardcover
Over the last twelve installments the Women of the Otherworld have been telling their tales of danger keeping readers enthralled. But everything prior to this point has been leading to one final showdown that will bring all of the beloved characters characters back together one last time. The stakes have never been higher as the lives of every supernatural are hanging in the balance. Told from Savannah's perspective, the reader will be enthralled as they watch her scramble with her other allies to stop the war from destroying them all. But it won't be easy as the fight isn't only on earth, but heaven and hell have joined the fray. No matter the outcome, in the end nothing will ever be the same.

There are so many elements in Thirteen that I would love to talk about, but in all honesty the entire book is one big spoiler and I completely understand why the publisher opted to put such a strict release date and no early review copies. This is a book that truly deserves to be savored not spoiled, and for that reason, I won't be going into many details or specifics in this review. I apologize in advance if things seem overly vague or I end up sounding like a squealing fan girl as a result. It just wouldn't do this fantastic book any justice to give anything away in advance.

From the very start, Thirteen took off with a bang. It was so jammed pack with action that the even when the characters would score a small victory, both they and myself barely had a chance to breathe before it was off to the next crisis. Seriously, I don't think my heart rate lowered once while reading Thirteen as the stakes were that high. However, even though that action was incredibly exciting, what really kept me enthralled were the emotional aspects of the book.
