Book Review #398 - Thirteen (The Last Thirteen #1) by James Phelen


13 books. 13 nightmares. 1 destiny.

I click my fingers and everybody dies.

Sam wakes from his nightmare to discover the terrifying reality. It will come true.

Kidnapped from school and finding out his parents aren't who he thinks they are, Sam is suddenly running from danger at every turn. Nothing will ever be the same again.

With his life and identity shattered, Sam's salvation is tied to an ancient prophecy. He is in the final battle to save the world, up against an enemy plotting to destroy us all.

He alone can find the last thirteen.
My Rating: 3/5
The writing style of this book is quite simplistic so I would say this is more of a children's book rather than young adult.
This book is similar to the Conspiracy 365 books in that it is completely action packed and fast paced but lacks any kind of depth. Plus, they always end with annoying cliff-hangers.
Plot wise, it combines a lot of things that are popular in young adult fiction such as prophecies, people who dream the future, references to mythology etc.
The characters were all pretty generic. The book was too heavily focused on the action rather than character building.
This book was a very light, fun and fast read and takes no time or effort to read.
