THE THIRTEENTH SACRIFICE is a well crafted supernatural thriller. The characters and story line are well-developed. Samantha Ryan grew up in a coven of witches, and she was the only survivor when a spell goes wrong and everyone in the coven , but Samantha is killed.

Samantha is once again immersed into the life of a witch. She has to go undercover to flush out the killer. As she gets closer to the one who is behind the murders, Samantha starts to have flashes of memory from her childhood and that fateful night. Samantha has to be strong or risk losing herself again to the magic and life of a witch. I loved this book with its many twists and turns, and surprising ending that I did not expect. I give THE THIRTEENTH SACRIFICE 4/5 stars.
