Series: Women of the Otherworld #13 Publisher: Orbit Release Date: July 26, 2012 Reviewed by: Amber R. Book Info Author Info
The Women of the Otherworld series started off bumpy for me with Bitten. For some reason, when I first read it about 4 years ago, it wasn't my cup of tea. I came back to this series though and absolutely fell in love with all of these characters. Paige and Lucas started out being my favorites but as the series progressed, I couldn't pick a favorite now if I tried. From Elena and Clay, to Eve and Kristof, to Savannah, Adam and back to Paige and Lucas, I love them all so much (including the ones I didn't mention).
When I finished Living with the Dead on April 13th, instead of pacing the rest of the series and spreading it out like I have been, I decided to just go full force and finish up the series. Less than 10 days later I picked up Thirteen and the beginning note from Kelley had me tearing up (lame I know). I didn't start this series at the beginning and I haven't known it for as long as others but it's easily in my top 3 of favorite book series ever.
I honestly couldn't be happier with the way this book went. Well, if Kelley told us she was just kidding and Women of the Otherworld would never end, I'd be happier. I know there are spin offs and what not but we all know that's not the same. But more about the story, I liked getting the glimpses of the fight from everyone's point of view. And a fight it was, this entire book was a complete fight. From the beginning to the end and everything in between, they fought. There was so much going on the entire time but I really thought everything was cohesive and came together. Throughout the entire book, I knew what was going on and I didn't feel lost by all of the activity.
The fact that all of our "main" characters stayed alive was a big deal for me. I mean, it was touch and go for some people. And the things that did happen were pretty shocking but I guess that's what happens during war. I have been so involved in these characters and there were some things that happened that I was absolutely livid about. The treatment and pure disrespect and utter crap that was sent their way made me so mad. And while we get closure so we're not just left hanging, there is really plenty enough room to come back to these characters later on.
What this boils down to is I'm happy with this book and write more, Kelley!
