Thirteen by Kelley Armstrong

Genre:  Adult Paranormal Fantasy
Women of the Underworld Series, Book 13

Description (taken from Kelley Armstrong's website):
A war is brewing—the first battle has been waged and Savannah Levine is left standing, albeit battered and bruised. She has rescued her half brother from supernatural medical testing, but he’s fighting to stay alive. The Supernatural Liberation Movement took him hostage, and they have a plan to expose the supernatural world to the unknowing.

Savannah has called upon her inner energy to summon spells with frightening strength, a strength she never knew she had, as she fights to keep her world from shattering. But it’s more than a matter of supernaturals against one another—both heaven and hell have entered the war; hellhounds, genetically modified werewolves, and all forces of good and evil have joined the fray.

Uniting Savannah with Adam, Paige, Lucas, Jaime, Hope, and other lost-but-notforgotten characters in one epic battle, for a grand series finale.

The Women of the Underworld series has been a major favorite of mine because the books are from various characters' points of views.  For example, we get to experience the supernatural world from a werewolf's perspective in one book while seeing it from a half-demon's in another book.  The last three books in this series are from Savannah's, a witch, point of view.  And I do believe it was very fitting.

Now to the story.  I'm not going to say much to ruin the plot, but I will say that the book immediately picks up where number twelve left off.  And there's a lot of action and violence.  All the characters we have come to love show up in this epic battle.  And no one is safe from death nor despair.

But once the fight is over, it just kind of ends with a theme that life goes on.  Just another day in the paranormal neighborhood.  Was it a good ending?  Sure.  Am I sad to see the series end?  Obviously...
