Overview

In 1902, in a dark room on the fifth floor of Carnegie Hall, thirteen people came together to continue a tradition that had been set in stone thousands of years before.

In 2012, Leah Tallent is Head of Research at the New York Public Library. Stoic and stable, brilliant and cynical, she has forever enjoyed her existence among the book stacks. But even with her unparalleled intellect, there was no way to know that on the historic steps between America's famous lions, she would become involved with a crazy man on a fanatical quest.

Gareth Lowery has spent his life searching for the ultimate artifact that he is certain exists. His life's pursuit has been to retrieve twelve keys hidden by men whose job it was to protect the single biggest secret ever kept. To find the keys he must enlist the help of an unwilling guide who, unfortunately, knows much more than he bargained for.

From the first page to the last word, this fantastic duo become immersed in a whirlwind treasure hunt with historical and passionate repercussions. From the strange and eerie Winchester House to the blustery darkness of Loch Ness, Gareth and Leah will quickly learn that the theory of duality is correct: For every bad there is a good and, for Heaven, there most assuredly exists...Hell.

Meet the Author

As the daughter of a career librarian Amy grew up loving books; ‘Patience & Fortitude’ at the NYPL were her heroes. Beginning with Amy’s first book of historical romance which was titled, “The Heart of a Legend,” she began developing the storyline for a new series, (Tallent & Lowery) which moved her into the world of action and adventure/alternative history, however she had to temporarily place Tallent & Lowery on the back burner when her YA career spiked with The Angel Chronicles series.

Tallent & Lowery just wouldn’t be put to bed so easily and Amy, the ever obedient author, found the time to bring these remarkable characters to life. “13” is the first book in the seven book series.

Working as an editor in the publishing industry for decades, Amy is now the Owner/Operator of The Write Companion (www.thewritecompanion.com) which offers full editing, ghostwriting and proofreading services to authors.

    13 is a fantastic adventure that weaves together different historical events and personalities in fascinating ways.  I couldn't wait to see where the story took the characters next, or which historical figure was tied into the tale.  It all combines to form a thrilling first book for a series I can't wait to read more about.  And the characters?  I couldn't get enough of them!  By the end of the book, I just wanted more.  What happens to them next?  Where do they go from here?  I can't wait to start the next book.

    A fantastic adventure that will have you hooked from page 1.
    I loved 13! It was written beautifully with nice descriptions that made you feel like you were there with Gareth and Leah. The story was fast paced and had me on the edge of my seat trying to figure out the different clues and where their journey would take them next! It reminded me a little of National Treasure. I really enjoyed the fact that there was something new to discover around every corner both about the characters and the artifacts that they were seeking.
    Okay Leah is a great character that I would love to be friends with, but I am extremely jealous of her. I mean come on she is brilliant and gets to hang around books all day, what could be better? As cool as she is though she does have some things to learn and goes through some personal growth in this book. I liked that she could be vulnerable at times too because it made her human and more relatable. I loved her banter with Gareth they are a fantastic team, even if they do get on each other’s nerves from time to time.
    Gareth is quirky and brilliant in his own right. I really liked him and his crazy schemes. I found that he could be quite charming when he wanted to be. There was definitely some crazy chemistry between him and Leah. What I liked most about the relationship between these two is that it was so natural. It wasn’t perfect by any means and they knew it, but they genuinely loved each other and knew that true love takes courage and patience.
    I loved the banter between Leah and Gareth and felt that they were a great team. I can’t wait to see what other adventures these two get involved in future books!
