I was really impressed with Tate Hallaway's world building in Precinct 13. There was a plethora of supernatural characters that should have been overwhelming, but weren't due to the way things were handled. Each new element was introduced to Alex, and due to her acceptance were easily taken in stride as it they were directly tied into whatever she was currently facing. There wasn't a single info-dump, which was rather impressive considering the very large amount of things that needed to be covered in such a short amount of time. In fact the entire story was paced very well with no dull or slow moments keeping me sucked in the entire time.
I really loved the characters in this book, Alex most of all. She is incredibly tough and doesn't take nonsense from anyone. Most people would have collapsed long ago under the extreme stress of being told she was literally crazy for seeing and believing in magic. All the years of therapy and anti psychotics definitely took a toll, but she came out the other side much stronger.Read more ›
This story really got to rockin and rollin.
I really liked Tate Hallaway's world in Precinct 13. There was tons of supernatural characters that should have been confusing, but weren't because of how the author handled everything. There wasn't a single overload of info, which was rather remarkable considering the huge amount of background that needed to be delved in such a brief period of time. The whole story was paced extremely well with no shallow or wearisome moments and to which kept me engaged the entire time I was reading the story.
I have reread this story 3 times already and I know this is one of my favorites by TH and cannot wait to read more in this new series from TH.
Alex had a great personality and was fun to read about. There was a lot of times where Alex mentioned her past or a past event but they were only hinted at or slightly mentioned and it would have been nice to know the details of stuff that affected her so much. I felt like I missed a book or short story or something along those lines a lot during the book. I really liked Precinct 13 and the way they operated. There was a lot of mystery involved in the plot while Alex and Precinct 13 were investigating and I never felt like I knew who the bad guy was or had a grasp on the the exact situation they were in which is always nice. The romance between Alex and Valentine was just ehhh. There wasn't much in the way of explanation about him or his and Alex's past. Alex hints about him then all of a sudden he jumps in and is there. He remains mysterious for most of the book with only a little revealed about him, some big things are revealed but again it felt like I missed something.
It pains me to say this but I really wanted to love PRECINCT 13 and I only liked it. There is some decent groundwork for a series and I did like Alex and her coworkers so I will probably read a second book if one comes out, but I would probably borrow it from the library.

It sucks that the publishers will not pick up the second book. Especially with all the bollocksy, crap they do publish (e.g. twilight series and fifty-shades series).Published 15 months ago by Erin M. Smith

I could go on and on about how good this book is-just suffice it to say I am awaiting the book in the series even if Ms. Hallaway has to publish it herself.Published on July 31, 2014 by B. M. Fitzhugh
