URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Women of the Otherworld: 13 - Kelley Armstrong

Release Date: 24/07/12


The breath-taking, explosive finale to the Women of the Otherworld series War is coming to the Otherworld. A sinister cult known as The Supernatural Liberation Movement is hell-bent on exposing the truth about supernaturals to the rest of the world. Their violent, ruthless plan has put everyone at risk: from werewolves to vampires, from witches to half-demons. Savannah Levine - fiery and unpredictable - stands at the heart of the maelstrom. There is a new, dark magic inside her, granting her the power to summon spells of terrifying strength. But whether this magic is a gift or a curse, no one knows. On the eve of battle, all the major players must come together in a last, desperate fight for survival - Elena and Clay; Adam and Savannah; Paige and Lucas; Jeremy and Jaime; Hope, Eve and more...They are fighting for lives. They are fighting for their loved ones. They are fighting for the Otherworld.


When you’ve followed a series for a while, its always worrying when you hear that the final book is coming out. It feels almost like a kick in the guts but its also a sign that all bets are off as to what happens with your favourite characters. Whilst this is a Savannah tale, it was a book that brought all the old favourites back to aid in the world’s greatest supernatural crisis.

Its addictive, it has great pace and when you add to the mix Kelley’s wonderful characters that you want to not only spend time with but have followed for years, you know it’s going to be a book that whilst sad in some ways, is something that you just can’t leave alone. Finally throw into the equation, a short story featuring Elena and the Pack and all in it’s a solid tale to finish with. That said, Kelley hasn’t closed the door on the world so in future, don’t be surprised if another outing appears.
