Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, Urban Fantasy

2012 Urban Fantasy Novel Nominee

RT Rating

Without question, the Otherworld series has been one of the most consistently compelling and downright terrific urban fantasy series available and has catapulted superbly talented Armstrong to the top of the genre. In her epic finale to the series, Armstrong weaves together a thrilling story that places all of her beloved characters in dire circumstances. Utterly satisfying and remarkably intense, this marvelous series goes out with a major bang! Giant kudos to Armstrong for over a decade of fantastic reading pleasure!

When her half-brother Bryce is injected with a mysterious concoction developed by the Supernatural Liberation Movement (who plan to announce the existence of the supernatural to humans), witch Savannah Levine and her friends suspect this is only the beginning in a war that will split not only the demon world, but also the angelic. To stop the supernatural world from being exposed, it will take the all-out efforts of not only Savannah, but Elena, Clay, Paige, Lucas, Jeremy, Jaime, Eve, Kris, Hope, Karl and, most of all, Adam. The stakes are immense, and the danger is reaching critical mass! (DUTTON, Aug., 464 pp., $26.95)

LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of Thirteen

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:
*Copy received from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review

I loved, loved, LOVED this book! As an Otherworld fan and groupie, it is my personal opinion that Kelley could not have ended the series any better...

All the leading characters that we've fallen in love with throughout the series were there, the action was insane, the revelations incredible, the 'closure' on some issues exactly what I would have wished for, and yet she left little tendrils to give us a few extra stories that she stated in the 'Note From the Author' would come in a few anthologies staring in 2014.

In short, it was a fabulous conclusion novel and I would highly recommend it and the entire WOMEN OF THE OTHERWORLD/OTHERWORLD STORIES series. If you're looking for a high-octane thrill-ride, then Thirteen is for you. And if you like your Urban Fantasy with lots of diversity, then most definitely check out THE WOMEN OF THE OTHERWORLD and the OTHERWORLD STORIES!

I am desperately going to miss this series, but am definitely looking forward to Kelley's tie up novellas next year!
