Thirteen boys. Twelve dead. One survives. For now . . .

Adam was born at the stroke of midnight at the start of a new millennium. He is the target of a cult who believe boys born at that time must die before the end of their thirteenth year. Twelve boys have been killed so far.

Coron, the crazed cult leader, will stop at nothing to bring in his new kingdom. And now he is planning a bombing spectacular across London to celebrate the sacrifice of his final victim . . .

Thirteen is the first in an explosive thriller duology from Tom Hoyle. Read on with the action-packed Spiders. Perfect for fans of Michael Grant and Robert Muchamore.

Fast-paced and brimming with action, menace and suspense, Thirteen is a truly gripping and gritty thriller.
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.
If you know any young to mid teens with a penchant for thrillers and tense action stories, this is definitely the story for them.
