Waiting on Wednesday 4.11.12

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Title: Thirteen
Author: Kelley Armstrong
Release Date: July 26, 2012

Summary: 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 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-not-forgotten characters in one epic battle, for a grand series finale.

This is the series that defined urban fantasy for me. It was my gateway in, quickly followed by The Hollows, the Shifters series, and even Sookie Stackhouse. This is the one that came first for me, and for that I will always love it the most.

I had no idea that the next book would be the last; when I found out, I was so bummed! But as much as I want the series to last forever, I still can’t wait to read the book.

The Hollows was my first UF series, I think, but the Otherworld series is my favorite UF series ever.

This author seems pretty popular, but I’ve never read any of her work. This one sounds good. Nice choice!

I haven’t read any of Kelley Armstrong’s books yet, but like you I love reading UF novels :) Thanks for stopping by my blog.

You know, I’ve never read a Kelly Armstrong book. Should I? Yeah, probably. Especially because that cover is awesomesauce. Great pick!

Waiting on Wednesday at Book Brats!

For some reason, maybe it’s just me, but this sounds like it is part of a series. But it sounds really interesting and I like the cover.

This is the last one? That makes me sad, I love this series so much, it got me interested in reading for fun years ago. But I’m sure this book will be epic :)
