The book was written by authors Michael Scott and Colette Freedman. It was published in December 2011 in both the United Kingdom and the United States.

Reception[edit]

Critical reception to The Thirteen Hallows has been mixed, with Kirkus Reviews saying that the book was "manufactured" but "could have been a lot worse".[1] Blogcritics also reviewed the film, writing that the book was "most violent and bloody urban fantasy I have ever read" but that "where the violence put me off a few times, the story kept pulling me back in."[2] The A.V. Club gave the book a "C-", saying that the book was "flat and unnecessary".[3] Publishers Weekly positively reviewed the book, stating that The Thirteen Hallows had "relentless pacing and a richly detailed story".[4]
