Fans of Buffy and Charmed will love it … I enjoyed it immensely. - Sunday Independent
This novel is dark, bloody, emotional, scary, and so darn well-written that, even though you may be a bit afraid to read it right before you go to sleep, it's almost impossible to put it down. Every scene ripples with internal tension, external threats and insanely visual imagery. The writing shines like freshly splattered blood on the page, and Samantha is such a smart, likable, vulnerable and yet entirely fresh heroine that, even with her extraordinary abilities and the impossible choices she must make, it's easy for the reader to identify with her character... This novel is an insanely good read... turn all the lights on, grab a pillow to hug, and start reading! Debbie Viguié just keeps getting better and better. Creepy and compelling, The Thirteenth Sacrifice is scary plot perfection. With a little something for everyone and a whole lot of awesome to hook you in, this new series is sure to shock, delight, repel, intrigue and keep readers glued to the edge of their seat as they await the sequel. - USA Today

The 13th Sacrifice is a book that defies labels and genre boundaries. Debbie Viguie weaves a tale that can't be placed in any one category with elements from several areas making this one a heart-stopping read.It will have readers on the edge of their seats. It will have them hiding under the covers and looking around corners. It will give them the heebie-geebies but they won't be able to put it down. The tension that Viguie creates is enough to make your hair stand up... This isn't one for the faint of heart. Viguie shows the true ruthlessness of her witches and asks the reader to sit back and take it. Her no-nonsense style and dark, gripping realism are hard to beat in this epic thriller. - DebsBookBag.co.uk

While I was utterly repulsed and quite terrified of some of the things that happened in The Thirteenth Sacrifice, that did not keep me from being completely engrossed in the story. I was covered with chills as I watched things unfurl and the threat of Samantha's discovery just about killed my nerves, but that only made me enjoy it all the more. I'd recommend The 13th Sacrifice to anyone one who enjoys an on the edge of your seat thriller with a major creepy factor that will utterly haunt you. - Abookobsession.com
