Publisher's summary

The exciting fourth novel in best-selling author Kelley Armstrong's "impossible-to-put-down" Cainsville series.

When Olivia's life exploded - after she found out she was not the adopted child of a privileged Chicago family but of a notorious pair of convicted serial killers - she found a refuge in the secluded but oddly welcoming town of Cainsville, Illinois. Working with Gabriel Walsh, a fiendishly successful criminal lawyer with links to the town, she discovered the truth about her parents' crimes in an investigation that also revealed the darker forces at work in the place that had offered her a haven. As if that wasn't enough, she also found out that she, Gabriel, and her biker boyfriend Ricky were not caught in an ordinary sort of love triangle, but were hereditary actors in an ancient drama in which the elders of Cainsville and the mysterious Huntsmen who opposed them had a huge stake.

Now someone is killing street kids in the city, and the police have tied Ricky to the crimes. Setting out with Gabriel's help to clear Ricky's name, Olivia once again finds her own life at risk. Soon the three are tangled in a web of betrayals that threatens their uneasy equilibrium and is pushing them toward a hard choice: either they fulfill their destinies by trusting each other and staying true to their real bonds, or they succumb to the extraordinary forces trying to win an eternal war by tearing them apart.

Slight problem with new narrator

They changed one of the narrators and the main problem with that was a discord with their portrayal of the characters. Julie McKay just seemed to not get the voices right to suit the characters personalities. Carine Montbertrand did great as usual. But I was really glad that both books 4 and 5 in the series finally came out in audio.

Narrative

Great book! The only problem for me was the narrator. Carine was good, as always. But Julie’s part sounded as though Siri was now doing audiobooks. Very unappealing to listen to. Her voice is nice, it’s just very robotic, and I did not enjoy listening to her parts.

Great Story, Horrible 2nd Narrator

Like the other books in this series, the story is great and I have come to appreciate Carine Montbertrand's narration. But Julie McKay, as the new 2nd narrator, took me out of the story every time I heard her robotic voice. I was disappointed to see that she is the second narrator in future books as well. I may continue the series on Kindle.

Why the narrator change =(

I love this series, I've always loved the narrating but the 2nd narrator is different in this book. Thankfully not the main reader because I am not impressed! I keep zoning on her voice and having to back up and listen again. Not a smooth narrator. sounds like its partly computerized and awkward.

That being said this whole series is amazing! I just listened to 1-3 to refresh before 4 and It is good enough to re-listen to. I've been a fan of Kelley since other world series and shes has never disappointed. Well written plot with enough continuing mystery to keep you moving.

I'm ready for book 5!

Thanks for another great read Kelley Armstrong!

Why the 2 different narrators?!

Both are good, don’t get me wrong but.... well the one playing our Heroine mostly is a touch grating. It takes a moment before the annoyance her voice elicits wears off and so each time they switch back and fourth it actually pulls me right out of the damn story!! So frustrating. So unnecessary. Would have been understandable if they’d went with a male voice actor but they didn’t. Which- ok- than why do we need two when the deeper voices woman does a fine job of all characters??? It’s a good story but the switching back and fourth is definitely not helping that story get told. Simple as that.

Another great story!

Well-written, great book. One huge complaint: they added a second reader, who is awful! She sounds robotic. Please let the original/ main do everything in the future. It’s so bad that it’s distracting and offputting.

New narrator not great

The second narrator for the 4th book has changed. It’s jarring (especially as I decided to listen to the 1st three books again before finishing the series) and I don’t think she’s very good with the male voices. This will not keep me from purchasing the 5th book; it’s just disappointing.
Carine Montbertrand still very good, does great with the chapters from Olivia’s point of view (including the male voices)

Story was good in series

Like all the characters. Did not like the alternate voice for Gabriel in this book. Book seemed to sum it up but maybe there’s a new one?

new narrator almost ruined it

Switching one of the narrators mid- series is distracting at best, but Julie McKay's performance was so incongruous and disappointing that it nearly ruined the entire book! Luckily the story was excellent and riveting enough to keep me from me from giving up.

New narrator poorly chosen

I hate to leave such a bad review because the story itself is first rate. But we really need the audio producer to know that the new narrator is the wrong fit. (There are 2; the one who did the other books is perfect) Something about the way the new one speaks, a particular emphasis on the last word of every sentence, a strange intonation and kind of dissonance, it distracts from the narration so that you don't hear the actual story, just the odd speech patterns. I can't emphasize enough how jarring it is. For me the story is ruined.
