13 books. 13 nightmares. 1 destiny.
                        
This is the final installment in a thirteen part action thriller which takes Sam, the Thirteen Dreamers and readers around the world in a battle to save civilization from Solaris and his evil intentions.
Events seem to have come full circle when the players end up back in Egypt, where the race began in earnest for Sam and his friends. This time however, there are shocks in store. Loyalties are destroyed and, in the final push to keep the Dream Gate from falling into the hands of Solaris, lives may be lost.

For those who are already immersed in The Last Thirteen, this final book answers questions asked throughout the series. For others, start with 13 and follow the countdown to 1. This is a series which must be read in order.

Each book in this series for readers over 10, is short, exciting and has edge-of-seat drama often ending in cliffhangers - making it an addictive and speedy read. Strong female characters, both heroes and villains, ensure that girls will enjoy The Last Thirteen as much as boys.
