About the Author
KELLEY ARMSTRONG lives in southwestern Ontario with her husband, kids and far too many pets. She has been telling stories since before she could write. Her earliest written efforts were disastrous. If asked for a story about girls and dolls, hers would invariably feature undead girls and evil dolls, much to her teachers' dismay. Today, she continues to spin tales of ghosts and demons and werewolves, while safely locked away in her basement writing dungeon. She is the bestselling author of the Women of the Otherworld series, as well as the New York Times #1 bestselling young adult trilogy Darkest Powers, and is about to publish the last book in Darkness Rising, her next YA trilogy. She is also hard at work on a new adult trilogy that will break new ground for both her writing and her fans.See all Product Description

The premise of the books is that it's the story of real life Supernaturals, werewolves, vampires, witches, demons, etc... as they live among us today. Bitten was about a werewolf, Stolen introduced witches and other supernaturals and Dime Store Magic & Industrial Magic are about witches but also has a bunch of others.
I'm surprised this book is not more widely read. The story is interesting, the writing is excellent, the plots are great and I certainly got attached to the characters enough that I want to follow their lives some more.
I think if you enjoyed such TV shows as Buffy and Angel, you'll love these books.
Pick it up, you won't regret it.
THIRTEEN is the final instalment in Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series. Although the number of storylines, technically cross, into the 20s (with the many anthologies and short stories available), THIRTEEN is the last of the full-length novels. There remain many stories to be told (Morgan's and Reese's for example) but sadly, I understand why Kelley felt the need to close the door on the Women of the Otherworld series. I am also pleased she has announced that she has, at the minimum, three more anthologies set for release starting in 2014. Let us hope that Morgan and the others will get their stories written-nothing like introducing several new characters and never revealing the exact nature of their connection to the series.
THIRTEEN is the culmination of 10 plus years of story telling all starting with Kelley's introductory WOTO novel BITTEN, where we were first introduced to Elena Michaels 'the first and only female werewolf- and her mate and 'sire' Clayton Danvers. But the road to THIRTEEN began in the pages of the second story STOLEN with the introduction of Savannah Levine- a young 12year old witch left orphaned when her half-demon/half- witch mother, Eve Levine, was murdered trying to escape Ty Winsloe's compound of imprisoned supernatural beings. Now 10 years later, Savannah is a young woman, hopelessly in love with the man who helped rescue her from Winsloe's hold, and a major player trying to stop a 13th century child killer from successfully finding a cure for mortality and revealing the existence of the supernatural race.Read more ›
This is the last book of the series, and it makes me sad that there will be no other, well, so says the author: the way this book ends, she could change her mind (hopefully).
There are not many books that I am eager to re-read or that I will buy for my home library after already reading them but this series is one of them. In fact, this was my third time reading this book and I think I actually enjoyed reading Industrial Magic more this time around. The second time I read it I was still yearning for more Clay and Elena (the werewolf couple) whom I adored from the first two books. This time I let the wolves go a bit and focused on Paige and Lucas and I enjoyed getting their take on things.
Like in her previous books, Armstrong's cast of characters make appearances in other books and I love how seamlessly this is done. Once again Armstrong pulls her readers into her unique world of supernaturals living among us but this time focusing on witches and the evil Cabals (think magical mafia). There's a solid mystery surrounding the murders of Cabal youth at the centre of this book but the reader also gets a deeper look into Lucas' extended family and all the baggage that entails.
Overall, this is a great addition to the Women of the Underworld series. I recently purchased my own copy of Haunted (the fifth book in the series) and can't wait to pick it up soon to remind myself of Eve Levine's role in this unique supernatural world.
If you haven't picked up this series yet I HIGHLY recommend you do.Read more ›
Now onto the book itself. Admittedly I have never been an uber fan of Savannah, my heart has always belonged to the originals- Elena, Paige, and Jamie. However, I really started to come around to Savannah in the previous book, "Spellbound".Read more ›

I really loved the women of the otherworld. I recommend this book and also the series.
But my favorite person is Elena Michaels.
