PNR Review: Thirteen (Women of the Otherworld) [Hardcover]

I've finished "Thirteen" the last book in her Women of the Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong.

Product Description

The #1 New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong delivers the novel her fans have been clamoring for: Thirteen, 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-notforgotten characters in one epic battle, Thirteen is a grand, crowd-pleasing closer for Armstrong’s legions of fans.

My Review:

This is the final installment in the Woman of the Otherworld series and I'm sad this is the last book.  Glad to hear she has a few anthologies coming out starting next year.

In this book Savannah Levine is desperately trying to stop a 13th century child killer from finding a mortality cure and revealing the existence of the supernatural world and she is in love with the man who helped her escape the clutches of Ty Winslow.

Savannah and Adam finally share a kiss and they admit they have been dancing around their feelings for years.  Adam has held back from starting a relationship with Savannah because of age difference between them and Savannah has been in love with Adam since he burned her name in a heart.

This book was very fast paced with non-stop action but a lot was going on.  It was great to see everyone again that is important to the Otherworld series help Savannah fight to save the world.  It was sad that Cassandra and Aaron sacrifice themselves to save a former beloved Cabal member and it was interesting that Jasper Haig is released to make sure that Hope survives.
