Publisher's Summary

The number-one New York Times best-selling author Kelley Armstrong delivers the novel her fans have been clamoring for: The epic finale of the Otherworld series.

It's been more than 10 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.

    "LOVED IT!!"

    Kelley Armstrong is a wonderful writer. I've been reading her books for years. I think this is the last installment of "The Otherwolrd" series. She wraps things up nicely here. Using Johanna Parker as a narrator threw me a little bit for the last couple books because I was used to her "sookie" voices. However, she does a great job here.
    I won't spoil anything here, but let it be known you are in for a wild ride right from the beginning. This book picks up exactly where the last one left off.

    "Kelley Armstrong is great, narrator- not so much."
    Would you be willing to try another one of Johanna Parker’s performances?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! In spite of the narrator I wanted to keep listening to find out how the series ends.

    I love the BBC and British mysteries, but my tastes are very eclectic. I live with my husband and menagerie of rescued cats and dogs.

    Story
    "Such a Shame"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A plot that relied on something other than guts and gore. Now to put this in some context, I have read every single other book, story, and novella written by Kelley Armstrong, so this very negative review is from a big fan. I know she does not shy away from violence, but in this book that was all there was. It's like there were just a few scenes between blood and guts to get from one needlessly PROLONGED scene of graphic violence to the next, like porn that tries to have a story line. I could not even finish this one.


    What character would you cut from Thirteen?

    It's hard to say because the characters were very unimportant in this book: It was all about the violence. The one bright light was Eve. If Armstrong had been able to get away from her fascination with describing eviscerations in detail to develop characters more, the re-corporalized Eve would have been great.


    Any additional comments?

    Just because I have read every other book in the series, I will probably get this one in used paperback so that I can skip through the probable 3/4 of the book that does not involve plot. I seems a shame to end such a fantastic series on such a low note. It's hard to believe Armstrong even wrote this one.

    "Entire series.....BEST EVER"

    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.

    "Not disappointed"

    Johanna Parker is by far one of my favorites. I enjoy her voice so much. I loved the book. If you enjoy the series, you will enjoy this one.

    "Great Series!"

    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!

    Story
    "A wonderful last book for Otherworld"
    What did you love best about Thirteen?

    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'.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    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.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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."

    "Constant Motion!"
    What did you like best about this 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.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Without specifics it actually did both - it had many highs and lows which makes for a great book!


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    "Last book"
    Any additional comments?

    Thirteen is the next book in Kelley Armstrong's Otherworld series. It is billed as the last book in this series. After a listen, it is clear why. Armstrong does a great job wrapping up the series and giving all the characters an end-some happy, some not. This is a strong addition to a wonderful series. NOTE: This series was turned into a TV show in 2013.

    If you could sum up Thirteen in three words, what would they be?

    It's a great book and the narrator is good except someone needs to let her know Clayton has the Louisiana drawl...not Elena. Disappointing when you've been reading the entire series and you know the characters. Otherwise she does a good job.
