Publisher's Note:

What if there was a 13th zodiac sign? You’re no longer Sagittarius, but Ophiuchus, the healer, the 13th sign. Your personality has changed. So has your mom’s and your best friend’s. What about the rest of the world? What if you were the one who accidentally unlocked the 13th sign, causing this world-altering change, and infuriating the other 12 signs? Jalen did it, and now she must use every ounce of her strength and cunning to send the signs back where they belong. Lives, including her own, depend upon it.…

The 13th Sign

by Kristin O'Donnell Tubb

Overall Book Review:

The 13th Sign was a surprisingly enjoyable book, but didn’t quite manage to reach stardom.  It was fun to read with the voodoo and astrological elements adding an eerie feel to it while the vibrant setting of New Orleans provides a fresh backdrop for the story.  The main character is interesting in many aspects, and the novel’s focus on personality combined with the author’s skill allows the reader to easily see the characters developing and changing.  All it misses is that extra bit of something that makes a book especially memorable.  With its exciting storyline and large cast of characters, fans of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series will probably enjoy reading this novel.  A wonderful read, The 13th Sign will thrill readers of all ages!

About the Reviewer

I enjoy reading adventure books like Gary Paulsen’s The Hatchet, probably because I like to lead an active life. Outside of reading, I camp, hike, run cross country and work on a farm, and a lot of these experiences let me appreciate the content of a good book, as well as the unlimited possibilities that can happen between its covers.
