I didn't have a copy of the next book on hand when I finished this. Don't repeat my mistake. Damn cliffhangers

This book is really good. There are thirteen books in all and this one is the first so dont get confused because the books are counting down. Honestly when i read the first chapter i was so hooked on this book and once you keep reading book 12 and book 11 aka book 2 and 3 you will find out some really interesting things , a plot twist and lots of running! I highly recommend this book for people of the ages 10 to 14. And when you read this book you will more than likely want to keep on reading the rest of the books in the series i know i will!

This is the first book in The Last Thirteen series and James Phelan kicks it off with a bang. The first book sets the scene for the rest of the series, so we find out snippets of information about Sam, the Last Thirteen, and the organisations that want to get their hands on them. The Last Thirteen are a group of teenagers with a special ability that some people will kill to get their hands on – their dreams come true. Sam is the first of the 13 and the race is on to find the other 12 in order to save the world.

The plot races along (especially in the second half of the book) and the chapters are short, so readers will gobble it up and be waiting for the second book. Each of the books ends with a dramatic cliff-hanger, and the end of the first book certainly makes me want to read the next one to find out what happens.

Like similar series (39 Clues, Infinity Ring) there is a dedicated fan website, where fans can register online and gain VIP access to a range of exciting features. There’s also the chance to enter the competition, with your chance to become famous.

The Last Thirteen is perfect for ages 10+ who love action, adventure and mystery. Get your copy today and join the race to find the Last Thirteen.

Dreaming of their destiny,
Minds entwined, thirteen will be.
Falter not, the last cannot fall,
Or Solaris shall rule over all.
