My biggest regret with reading this book is that I did not read Part 1 and Part 2 together. I read Part 1 in May of 2016. A little of a year later Part 2 was released. I forgot so much of what I had read. The refresher would have been nice.
Quinn and Thirteen have a very complicated beginning to a very complex relationship. Thirteen needs a Center to keep him grounded. It’s all part of his Other makeup. Quinn has been living a life that’s not really his own. He’s a counterfeiter who works for some very bad people. Thirteen is being pursued by another Other who will wholly consume everything that he is. Thirteen will simply be no more. There’s not too much Quinn can do about this. He’s in big time denial that he’s anything other than straight. Thirteen’s Other abilities have Quinn questioning everything, especially his lusty thoughts about Thirteen. Quinn wants to believe that if Thirteen can read his mind then he certainly has the ability to plant those carnal thoughts.
There is a huge chunk of this booked based on Adrienne’s own version of quantum physics. From the very beginning readers are warned that it is the author’s version and that it was bent for the purpose of this world to work. I’m not a science person. I would have been lost even if it was all factual. I was however lost in it. I truly believe that in the creation of this world that much of Quinn’s and Thirteens romance was lost to making the book believable. Part Two of Thirteen is lengthy. For a book of this length (even in two parts) I feel that there should have been more romance between Quinn and Thirteen.
The page time with Five, Twenty-Three, and Nine gives readers something to look forward to with other Others Project books. There will be more of course. I thoroughly enjoyed Seven. While there were many disappointments with Thirteen I’m still pleased that I read it and look forward to more books in this world.
