Thirteen is a rattling good read and I suspect there will be plenty of adults, like me, who will be very happy to add this to their reading piles. (crimereview.co.uk)
Fast-paced and brimming with action, menace and suspense, Thirteen is a truly gripping and gritty thriller. (Lancashire Evening Post)
I found myself gripped and not able to put it down until I knew what happened. The author has a sequel planned and I will be looking out for it. (jilllovestoread.blogspot.co.uk)
This was a very strong debut novel, the villains were fantastic and all the more eerie because these kinds of people actually exist. If you know any young to mid teens with a penchant for thrillers and tense action stories, this is definitely the story for them. (ermergerdwerds.wordpress.com)
As with any great adventure the closing passages were built up with tension and it had a great setting in the streets of London, feeling ready-made for a film adaptation. I would recommend this book at the younger teen but anything that can get young males reading is worthy of acclaim and I think this book will certainly do that.

The characters were great, both the 'good' and the 'bad'. Coron was a brilliant crazy cult leader. Adam was a really likeable character, and the way he fantasised about being a hero before talking sense into himself was really cute. It is definitely something I would recommend for a younger, male reader who enjoys books such as The Recruit by Robert Muchamore. (arabooklover.blogspot.co.uk)
I loved the storyline of thirteen kids being born on the 1st of January 2000 and a clan of crazy ass people chasing after them to kill them before they hit the age of 14 so that their leader can "cleanse the world" of evil. It makes you realise how easily persuaded and gullible humans actually are. (doughnutandco.blogspot.co.uk)
A great read for everyone but it will join my list of reads for boy, particularly those finding reading an effort aged 12-16. (The School Librarian)
Thirteen is an explosive read that is very readable. It's dangerous, disturbing and always exciting. The ending is mindblowingly brilliant and I'm very eager to get my hands on book 2. (fictionfascination.blogspot.co.uk)
A gripping thriller about a boy targeted by a murderous cult leader. Fast-paced action for fans of CHERUB and GONE.See all Product description

Overall it was fun to read and was well written.
However, although the plot is involving, the book is quite poorly written. The point of view randomly switches between different characters and an annoyingly omniscient narrator with no warning, and it threw me out of the story repeatedly. The writer also uses lots of short, stilted sentences which didn't help matters. For this reason I wouldn't recommend it for adults or those who read a lot. However young people who are looking for a quick, exciting read probably won't be too bothered, in the same way that most people don't care too much about the dialogue in an action movie. I would give this 3.5 stars.
It held my interest and I turned page after page even though I had a million other things I needed to do!
The storyline is well thought out and though it can be violent in places it is aimed at the older child and the story does need/benefit from this to keep things exciting and moving.
