Publisher's Summary

The fifth book and the exciting conclusion to best-selling author Kelley Armstrong's "impossible-to-put-down" Cainsville series, in which she mixes hard-hitting crime writing with phenomenal world-building to create a brand of fiction all her own.

When Olivia Taylor-Jones found out she was not actually the adopted child of a privileged Chicago family but of a notorious pair of convicted serial killers, her life exploded. Running from the fall-out, she found a refuge in the secluded but oddly welcoming town of Cainsville, Illinois, but she couldn't resist trying to dig out the truth about her birth parents' crimes. She began working with Gabriel Walsh, a fiendishly successful criminal lawyer who also had links to the town; their investigation soon revealed Celtic mysteries at work in Cainsville, and also entangled Olivia in a tense love triangle with the calculating Gabriel and her charming biker boyfriend, Ricky. Worse, troubling visions revealed to Olivia that the three of them were reenacting an ancient drama pitting the elders of Cainsville against the mysterious Huntsmen with Olivia as the prize.

In the series' fifth and final novel, not only does Gabriel's drug addict mother, who he thought was dead, make a surprise reappearance, but Kelley Armstrong delivers a final scary and surprising knock-out twist. It turns out a third supernatural force has been at work all along, a dark and malevolent entity that has had its eye on Olivia since she was a baby and wants to win at any cost.

Great story, did not love the narration

This was the first of the series I'd listened to after reading the previous four and the narration was very difficult to stay with. One of the readers was very automated, almost computer like and while I got used to it enough to finish the book, I will make decisions on other books based on the narration heard here.

Second Narrator sounded Robotic

The story was quite good but the visa were a little irritating to follow sometimes. The second narrator was inhuman sounding. All and all a good story.

Loved the series, unsure about the final book

Let me start by saying that the series was fantastic. Somehow this final book felted forced. It didn’t seem to really flow and I continually lost interest. I cannot put my finger on the reason for that. I think the ending was good. I simply struggled through the book.

Going to have to read it

By the second book of this series I had completely immersed myself into this world that Kelley Armstrong had created and invested in the characters and relationships. I didn't always like them but I rooted for them. This is not a genre I generally read. Faeries are not my thing. Love triangles - with love that spans other lives - ha - sort of annoys me. I was hesitant. But this story was just so well done. It does all come together. The only draw back remained consistently to be the narrator. I will have to actually read this story next time and likely enjoy it more. The narrator removed me from the world at times. I recommend this - but I recommend reading.

Couldn't put it down!

The tongue in cheek references to equity makes this a perfect series ending! Oh, and in case you are worried, have fun chasing down the actual histories!
