Thirteen (Women of the Otherworld, #13) by Kelley Armstrong

The #1 New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong delivers the novel her fans have been clamoring for: 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-not-forgotten characters in one epic battle, Thirteen is a grand, crowd-pleasing closer for Armstrong’s legions of fans.

Another week that’s quieter than most. (All the better to look into pre-ordering next week’s books, my dear!) There are quite a few PNR titles of the bunch, not the least of which is the last(!!!) book in the Women of the Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong. Now that that series is done, it’ll be a long wait for her next PNR/UF series (called Omens & Shadows) about second sight and second chances. Sounds like a winner, that one…

Any surprises on this week’s list? Have you read any of the Women of the Otherworld books? When you enjoy a series by a given author, do you then auto-buy their other series titles thereafter?

    I’ve read ALL the Women of the Otherworld books! Kelley Armstrong was the first author I bothered investigating online…..at which point I discovered the joys of snippets and free short stories.

    Hmm noting in this post from my own list. I have not yet read Kelly Armstrong though. And yes, if I like an authors’ books, she becomes autobuy for me, with all of her books and backlist.

    Like Draconismoi, I’ve read all of Armstrong’s books for this series. I’m looking forward to reading Thirteen and seeing how it all ends. I did enjoy the series more when Clay and Elena were the main focus. I’m not that high on Savannah being center stage.

    • draconismoi July 24, 2012 at 5:53 pm

      Yeah, Savannah’s not my favorite. Spends a wee bit too much time obsessing over Adam. And her angst. Which is age-appropriate, but still.

  • Laurie July 24, 2012 at 5:21 pm

    Yep I’ve read them all and I too want to see how she ends it. I do keep going if it’s a series I enjoy. Usually there are some I like better than other but I have to see how the series plays out.

    Note: I will be reading “Dragon Justice” and will be BEYOND FURIOUS if a dragon does not feature prominently.

  • Susan July 27, 2012 at 7:44 pm

    Armstrong and I are on a break. (Not that she knows it.) I’ll hook back up with her later.

    Cuttlefish looks interesting. I’m seriously considering it.

    I did get Dragon Justice. Hope draconismoi doesn’t have to flame it like she did Nightshifted for being a dragon tease. :-)

    I think I’ve been living in cave because I’d never heard of the Pittacus Lore books. At this point, I wouldn’t even know where to begin so I’m crawling back under my rock.
