Thirteen Hallows - A Review
The Thirteen Hallows are power ancient artifacts that protect Britain from an invasion of the Demonkind. Each object has been entrusted into the care of a different person. When Sarah does a good deed by helping out one of the Hallowed Keepers, she suddenly finds herself deeply involved in an ancient race to save the world. Together with Owen, the nephew of the woman she was aiding, she flees London and races against time and centuries to Wales with the police blaming her for several brutal murders. Will the pair succeed in stopping the sinister Dark Man or will they become his next victims?
I checked this out from the library because I'd read other books by Michael Scott before and wanted to try this one out. I don't usually read thrillers, but this one was very gripping. I did enjoy reading it, though it's probably not going to make my read again list. It's a fast paced ride to the end. This is not a book suitable for children (usual fans of Scott's Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel Series) and probably not suited for most teens. It is a dark and violent tale.
My thoughts and opinions are my own.
Overall, I give this three and a half stars.
