I love the adventure and the author's view of the magic world.

I love this book and this series, but I hate that this is the last of the series. I've always enjoyed Johanna Parker in the Sookie Stackhouse book series, but was aprehensive about her taking over the Women of the Otherworld series. She did a great job. I loved how all of the Women of the Otherworld characters were portrayed in this final book.
I love the Otherworld series - and it's had several different readers throughout its 13-book duration. Unfortunately for me, my favorite reader only did one. I love Johanna Parker's reading in the Southern Vampire series, but I can't get that series out of my head when I listen to this one. She does a good job, but she'll always be Sookie to my ears.
As far as the story goes, Kelley Armstrong did it again! The story was great and stressful! Fans of the series get to see a little of everyone - so no matter who's your favorite, you get to see them!
Kelley Armstrong is such a tallented writer that it makes it hard not to enjoy any of her books, however I'm so glad Johanna Parker has narated the last three books in this series, most of the other narators in this series were terrible and I had to read the print version. That being said, Thirteen is an exciting read and wrap up to the series, since it involves all the characters of the series in one way or another. The story is told primarily by Savanna, but all the women that made this series have there hand in it. I'm sad to know the series is over, but enjoyed the end of it all the way.
Just a guy that likes a good story.
Ms. Armstrong was really able to create a cohesive ending to the story. Keeping all of the characters intact and letting us hear from multiple 'narrators'.
There are so many good characters it is hard to choose. As a male reader I think that my favorite character is Karl Marsten or Clay. To me Karl has always been something of an enigma and somewhat an antihero. As for Clay, well, he is Clay and Clay is just freaking awesome.
My favorite scene is where Savannah and Adam meet the prisoner and figure out who he is. I will not say more so I do not spoil it.
I laughed out loud on several occasions, but I think the overall feeling of finality really gave a mixture of happy and sad feelings. I mean having read every story I could find for otherworld, you get close to the characters and while you are happy that they have a happy ending, you are sad to know that this is the last book.
Read the whole series folks. It is brilliantly done. If Kelley Armstrong reads this review, I just say to her "Well done, a beautiful ending to a magnificent story."
I was completely impressed at the way so many characters from this series made an appearance in a way that made sense to the completion of this story. They didn't just appear for appearance sake. This story was non-stop action and constantly kept you thinking.
Without specifics it actually did both - it had many highs and lows which makes for a great book!
I can honestly say, when I started this book I couldn't imagine that this was a series finale, as there are so many characters and it is such a diverse series, but Ms. Armstrong really went all out to make this book worthy of a fantastic series!
Only if she doesn't try to do an accent. Her southern accent was bad as well as her french accent. The southern accent was too many types of southern accents rolled into one.
Yes! In spite of the narrator I wanted to keep listening to find out how the series ends.
Great addition to he series.
The kiss between Adam and savana
This was the first one. Great job.
When hope realized her husband was killed.
Happiness is a good book!
It begins with BITTEN and with each book it just gets better. The MEN OF THE UNDERWORLD was just totally awesome. Then there's 13, great as was the rest of them. I swear, if you don't like this series, this book...it's you.
