Quinn Farlin’s life just went from the frying pan into the fire.

All because he made one stupid mistake: he fell in love. Then he was left behind by the love of his life as payment for her freedom. Now Quinn lives as a slave to the Kent Family Empire; counterfeiting, money, paintings, rare coins, and anything else to keep his knees intact and his heart beating.

There seems to be no way out until one night a fireball falls from the sky and a mysterious voice on the phone saves his life. All the stranger asks in return is help for friend.

A friend with scars down his spine. A tattoo of the number 13 on the back of his neck. A friend who upon meeting Quinn can read his mind and watches him with adoration.

And while Quinn is convinced he’s still in love with the woman who left him, his heart has other plans.

Now it’s just a matter of staying alive; a task easier said than done, since nothing is what it seems to be, and the world he’s always known just fell down the rabbit hole.

My View:

I want to start by saying how much I am enjoying this series!! It is imaginative, fast paced and intricate. That being said, heed the author’s warning at the beginning of 13 and don’t read it if you don’t like cliff-hangers…at least not yet! She says the second part of 13 was to be out four weeks after this installment but it isn’t out yet. I suggest you wait and read 7 in the meantime to refresh your memory as so much goes on in that book that impacts this one. It had been awhile since I read 7 in January, and I have read so many other books in that time that some of the details were fuzzy for me and I was a little lost at times trying to remember what had happened.

Thirteen is different than he was in book 1. Almost like a newborn as he is missing much of his memory. Quinn is quite the interesting character. He has had a hard life and yet still has such a kind heart when it comes down to it. Things between them are strained and I ached for Thirteen.

Conspiracies are everywhere and the danger is great for all the Others. I enjoyed the thrill ride and was left wanting more with a twist I didn’t see coming. I can’t wait for the next book, though I think I might read 7 again while I do. Adrienne Wilder is quite the storyteller!
