Omens, the first installment in Kelley Armstrong’s exciting new series, introduced Olivia Taylor-Jones, daughter of notorious serial killers, and Gabriel Walsh, the self-serving, morally ambiguous lawyer who became her unlikely ally. Together, they chased down a devious killer and partially cleared her parents of their horrifying crimes.

Their success, however, is short-lived. While Olivia takes refuge in the old, secluded town of Cainsville, Gabriel’s past mistakes have come to light, creating a rift between the pair just when she needs his help the most.

Olivia finds a dead woman in her car, dressed to look like her, but the body vanishes before anyone else sees it. Olivia’s convinced it’s another omen, a sign of impending danger. But then she learns that a troubled young woman went missing just days ago—the same woman Olivia found dead in her car. Someone has gone to great lengths to kill and leave this young woman as a warning. But why? And what role has her new home played in this disturbing murder?

Olivia’s effort to uncover the truth places her in the crosshairs of old and powerful forces, forces that have their own agenda, and closely guarded secrets they don’t want revealed.

Disclosure: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

drey’s thoughts:

Olivia Taylor-Jones has had a heck of a time since finding out she’s the daughter of serial killers, and even finding her parents innocent of killing the last victims doesn’t make it easier to handle. So she’s still hiding out in Cainsville and working in the local diner.

Then Liv starts having visions: omens and portents, corpses in her vehicle, heads in her bed… What’s going on??

Kelley Armstrong’s follow up to the paranormal thriller Omens is full of revelations; some are surprises and others confirmation at what was previously hinted at. The story itself never loses your interest, and the romance provides a nice contrast to the creep factor. (At least Liv gets to have some fun!)

I am really enjoying Armstrong’s Cainsville series so far – the characters are interesting, and the story is engrossing and well-written. Armstrong fans know what I’m talking about; those of you new to Cainsville should start with Omens if you enjoy a solid drama with good character building, descriptive setting, whodunnit mystery, and a romance to round it out. :)

drey’s rating: Excellent!
