Review Day: 13 (Tallent & Lowery)

It's Review Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Title: 13 (Tallent & Lowery)
Author: Amy Lignor
Rating: 5 Stars (plus like a billion more!)

Book Blurb: 
In 1902, in a dark room on the fifth floor of Carnegie Hall, thirteen people came together to continue a tradition that had been set in stone thousands of years before.

In 2012, Leah Tallent is Head of Research at the New York Public Library. Stoic and stable, brilliant and cynical, she has forever enjoyed her existence among the book stacks. But even with her unparalleled intellect, there was no way to know that on the historic steps between America's famous lions, she would become involved with a crazy man on a fanatical quest.

Gareth Lowery has spent his life searching for the ultimate artifact that he is certain exists. His life's pursuit has been to retrieve twelve keys hidden by men whose job it was to protect the single biggest secret ever kept. To find the keys he must enlist the help of an unwilling guide who, unfortunately, knows much more than he bargained for.

From the first page to the last word, this fantastic duo become immersed in a whirlwind treasure hunt with historical and passionate repercussions. From the strange and eerie Winchester House to the blustery darkness of Loch Ness, Gareth and Leah will quickly learn that the theory of duality is correct: For every bad there is a good and, for Heaven, there most assuredly exists...Hell.

My Review:
Do I even need to say anything except one word?  INCREDIBLE.  Amy has done it again!! Everything she writes turns to gold.  Her characters were perfect, the story was perfect.. seriously guys I can't even explain how much I enjoyed this book (at least not well).  This is Amy's second series that I am absolutely fascinated with.

First off, she had a librarian as a main character.  Huge win in my book-nerd world.  Then she made it creepy and mysterious.  So many genres mixed together and it worked!  I loved the dynamic between Gareth and Leah.  They are an incredible duo and I can't wait to read the sequels to their story.  There are so many plot twists it drove me crazy trying to figure out the book, but I loved it!  I was instantly hooked after just a couple pages.  The story will capture you and never let you go.  I plan to re-read it very soon because I can't stop thinking about it!!  This novel will appeal to everyone and you will fall in love with it just as much as I have.

Pick up your own copy on Amazon and Barnes&Noble.  Happy Review Day!
