13 is a series of stories, in which some evil is committed. Sometimes, it is not clear what is happening, at first, but each episode is written in such a way that you have to read on. Then, there is the final, equally horrific episode which draws all of the stories together.
This is Julie Elizabeth Powell’s latest book and is one of her best, in my opinion. I have admired this author’s imaginative work in the past and have to say that her imagination is to the fore in this book. It is a gritty read, but the use of violence and strong language is certainly not out of place within the context of the book.
I’m not going to write any more about the stories as it would certainly spoil the book, but I would recommend it to anyone who likes horror with a twist in the tail. An excellent, quick read!
