Book Review: Thirteen by Kelley Armstrong

Thirteen (Women of the Otherworld, #13)Thir­teen by Kel­ley Armstrong
My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars

Well, Arm­strong def­i­nite­ly closed the series with a bang. I enjoyed this vol­ume so much that I’m tempt­ed to go back and re-read the entire series just to have more right now.

All the char­ac­ters we’ve got­ten to know are back: Clay, Ele­na, Jaime, Jere­my, Hope, Karl, Paige, Lucas, Eve, Kristof, Adam, Sean, Bryce, and Beni­cio. Savan­nah, how­ev­er, is the cen­ter of this nov­el while the oth­ers weave in and out of the action.

Savan­nah Levine was a child when she was intro­duced in one of the ear­li­est books of the series, Stolen. She is def­i­nite­ly a full adult now, capa­ble of hold­ing her own with or with­out spells. She is also an incred­i­ble nexus of influ­ence — and those who want to use or influ­ence her just don’t take “no” for an answer no mat­ter how force­ful­ly she says it.

The Super­nat­ur­al Lib­er­a­tion Move­ment (SLM) wants to use Savan­nah in their quest to bring super­nat­u­rals into the open, but she isn’t inter­est­ed. She’s been fight­ing their agents since Wak­ing the Witch, but some of the plots their pri­ma­ry mem­bers are asso­ci­at­ed in go all the way back to Stolen. These are the peo­ple who killed Eve, so why would Savan­nah help them?

Arm­strong has done a mas­ter­ful job of weav­ing lit­tle threads togeth­er from all the dif­fer­ent books so that they wind up in one neat pack­age. I was enthralled from the first word through the last but sat­is­fied with where she left the char­ac­ters. I look for­ward to read­ing any new sto­ries she choos­es to tell in the Oth­er­world, but I can see that this round is fin­ished. Kudos to her for a job well done.
