Publisher's Summary

As number one New York Times best-selling author Kelley Armstrong's new Cainsville series continues, Olivia's power to read omens leads to the discovery of a gruesome crime with troubling connections to her new hometown.

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.

    "CHANGED MY MIND"
    If you could sum up Visions in three words, what would they be?

    VERY GOOD READ


    What other book might you compare Visions to and why?

    OMENS, IT IS BOOK NUMBER 1 IN THE SERIES. I TRIED TO READ NUMBER 2 FIRST AND IT MADE NO SENSE. SO I RATED IT LOW


    What about Carine Montbertrand and Mozhan Marno ’s performance did you like?

    THEY WERE GREAT


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I WOULDN'T SAY ANY OF IT MOVED ME, BUT IT DID KEEP MY ATTENTION. AS FOR EMOTION, NOT SO MUCH


    Any additional comments?

    THIS SERIES IS A VERY GOOD SERIES, WELL WRITTEN, ETC. BE SURE TO READ # 1 FIRST.

    "Can't wait for #3"

    Visions is the follow up to Omens in the Cainsville series and it is even better than the first. It has more action, more sex (great sex), more intrigue, and more lore. There is a foreshadowing in this book that leaves you in anticipation, with a little dread, for book 3.

    Story
    "Expanding plot"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, for any one who loves mythology, especially Celtic, Welsh mythology this is the book for you.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Visions?

    Hard to say, there were a lot of moments that were good and makes you guess what is coming next. For those who read the first book, they know that the center of both books is the small town of Cainsville, an odd little town with a variety of characters, quite literally. Olivia Taylor-Jones aka Eden Larsen, a young woman with a psst that even she does not fully know, searches more about who she is. She is aided by her birth mother's attorney, Gabriel Walsh. Both of their roots are in Cainsville and some of the best parts and the theme that comes into play is the dynamic between these two people. It is not a sexual or love interest but one of true allies. There are times when Liv gets angry with Gabriel but it is short lived as they become closer regarding what they have come to understand about Cainsville and their heritage. Both of their goal is to investigate the murders Liv's birth parents are accused of committing and how it may involve the citizens of Cainsville. It poses many questions and answers some from Omens but you find yourself completely enthralled into the lives of these two characters in particular as they discover that they are pawns in a bigger picture.


    What about Carine Montbertrand and Mozhan Marno ’s performance did you like?

    Yes, they were excellent. I like the way Carine Montbertrand is the primary narrator for Liv from her point of view and how Mozhan Marno narrates for other people's thoughts, feelings and intentions. It works quite well because the reader knows what else was going on around the main character by using one and knowing what else is going on around by using another. It works quite well.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I would have to say that it was not one particular moment so much as a theme that went throughout the story. Even though Gabriel is usually the one who messes it up, Liv comes to understand that and backs off from him as she gets to know him. I liked the way the bond between the two becomes strong as they become very loyal to each other and have each others' backs throughout the story. I do not know what is in store for the two characters, but they make a great team throughout the story to the point of a best friend type of kinship as they both come to understand what was done to both of them and how their bond deepens.


    Any additional comments?

    It is hard to write any type of review because I really do not want to give the story away. It did not focus on the investigation of the murders so much as it is investigating a murder of someone who has ties to Cainsville and what they are able to find out about the people who live there and the effect that the citizens have had not only on Liv and Gabriel's life but others as well as the two discover their importance or role and how the plans of the townspeople is revealed and how others become interested in the two.
    This is a story that will want to make you talk about to others who have read it to come up with what you think will happen next. There is so many aspects that I found interesting in the series so far that I am wondering how Kelley Armstrong is going to tied it all together in just one more book. I think it would be interesting to have side stories as some authors have done with their books. The Cainsville series so far is a great story that leaves you with a sense of fulfillment and also keeps you wondering what is going to happen in the next book.

    "This 2nd book delivers on the 1st book's promise."
    Would you listen to Visions again? Why?

    Yes. For many reasons. I enjoyed it very much, it gives me good ideas for the type of book I hope to write someday, and I want to read it again when the next book comes out so I can read the series all in a row.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. This book is going in a great direction and I am still in suspense about Olivia's parents. The scene inside the abandoned asylum was completely creepy--not to mention the head in the bed. Yeeecch!


    Which character – as performed by Carine Montbertrand and Mozhan Marno – was your favorite?

    That's a hard one. I really like Patrick. He's an interesting character to me and his interactions with Olivia give me this weird contradiction of feelings--I find him amusing but worrisome. I fear he will betray her worse than Gabriel ever has.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    In a world where--

    Nope I can't finish that. What kind of cheesy-assed question is that?


    Any additional comments?

    Visions delivered on all the promises Omens made and left the series open for so much more. The ending really stuck with me and I am so sad about Olivia's father. I can't think of a story--except for maybe To Kill a Mockingbird--where I was that moved by how a father felt about his daughter.

    "Surprisingly good find"
    Where does Visions rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would say in the middle. The narration was good the story was good and I'm excited about a third book


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gabriel for sure… A troubled soul trying to rise above his past


    Which character – as performed by Carine Montbertrand and Mozhan Marno – was your favorite?

    I think I would have to say Rose the fortuneteller


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The lore that is thrown in to the story is very interesting and kind of brings it to a historical fiction novel


    Any additional comments?

    I surprisingly thrilled with this book I got the first one for only $3.95 so it was a good buy and a good series

    "Great Book, Painful Narration"
    Any additional comments?

    If you can handle the super nasal, obnoxious narration from Carine Montbertrand, the book is great. Can't wait for the third installment, but I really hope they just move forward with only Mozhan Marno (whose narration is excellent).

    "Worth The Credit"

    I'm liking this series. I wasn't sure I would, because I'm not a huge fan of Armstrong's other books. This book gives more of the background that was hinted at in the first book and leaves the reader excited for more. It's got some great romance scenes, but romance doesn't overpower the story, which is greatly appreciated. I definitely can recommend it!

    "Best book ever!"
    Would you listen to Visions again? Why?

    Yes, it's a wonderful story with fascinating characters!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes


    Which character – as performed by Carine Montbertrand and Mozhan Marno – was your favorite?

    Probably Eden/ Olivia. I did not enjoy the voices given to the male characters, instead of confident hot guys they sounded like prepubescent nerds.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Loved the whole book! I'm a huge kelley armstrong fan and this is my favorite series by her
