Review: A satisfying and crunchy read, with attractive and believable characters and a fairly well-driven and addicting plot. Delaney does some great spins in creating a normal-turned-unusual world that is easy for readers to fall into. Not too subtle hints on the mythical theme were plunked for a while down the storyline. Delicious characters and juicy, interconnecting relationships make up for the mediocre plot. However, though not epic-ly outstanding, "13 to life" packs in effective frustrated moments for just the right amount of time before rewarding with another hooking piece to the constant mystery being uncovered. Yet another alternative to your favourite werewolves read, but nonetheless thoroughly enjoyable.
Ratings:✿✿✿ 3 Blossoms Final Notes: This was a really great read, actually! Don't let the rating faze you, an average read for me would get a 2, so 3's more than decent! Honestly, the story was not original at all, but Shannon Delaney still makes it oh-so-satisfying with the right degree and balance of everything, so, yes, it was great. I thought I was getting my taste of Twilight, but no appearances of vampires, just team werewolves here.
