13 (Women of the Otherworld #13) by Kelley Armstrong , 444 pages, read by Angie, on 09/12/2012

Well this is the final book in this series and it goes out with a lot of action and appearances by all our favorite characters. 13 picks up right where Spell Bound left off. Savannah is still trying to get her powers back and the Supernatural Liberation Movement wants to infect people with a virus and out the supernaturals to the world. Of course, our valiant heroes must stop SLAM; so they all come together in one action packed sequence after another. We see Elena and Clay, Jeremy and Jaime, Hope and Karl, Savannah and Adam, Eve and Kristof, Lucas and Paige and a bunch of other random characters. The story is told through Savannah’s POV but there are chapters that allow some of the other voices to join in the storytelling.

I have really enjoyed this series since I read Bitten and am a little sad to see it end. However, I do admire authors who are able to actually end long running series. Do I think we will never see these characters again? Not really, I have a feeling they will pop up in Armstrong’s YA series or in future books.

As a finale to a series this wasn’t bad. We got to see and say goodbye to all our favorite characters even if they didn’t play a huge role in this book. I will admit that the changes in location and nonstop action sometimes got a little confusing; it seems like they rush from one disaster to another. However, it is a satisfying ending and everything seems to work out in the end. There are still loose threads though and room for Armstrong to revisit this world.
