Publisher's Summary

Number-one New York Times best-selling author Kelley Armstrong begins her new series with Omens, featuring a compelling new heroine thrust into a decades-old murder case and the dark mysteries surrounding her strange new home.

Twenty-four-year-old Olivia Taylor Jones has the perfect life. The only daughter of a wealthy, prominent Chicago family, she has an Ivy League education, pursues volunteerism and philanthropy, and is engaged to a handsome young tech firm CEO with political ambitions.

But Olivia’s world is shattered when she learns that she’s adopted. Her real parents? Todd and Pamela Larsen, notorious serial killers serving a life sentence. When the news brings a maelstrom of unwanted publicity to her adopted family and fiancé, Olivia decides to find out the truth about the Larsens.

Olivia ends up in the small town of Cainsville, Illinois, an old and cloistered community that takes a particular interest in both Olivia and her efforts to uncover her birth parents’ past.

Aided by her mother’s former lawyer, Gabriel Walsh, Olivia focuses on the Larsens’ last crime, the one her birth mother swears will prove their innocence. But as she and Gabriel start investigating the case, Olivia finds herself drawing on abilities that have remained hidden since her childhood, gifts that make her both a valuable addition to Cainsville and deeply vulnerable to unknown enemies. Because there are darker secrets behind her new home and powers lurking in the shadows that have their own plans for her.

So exciting!

I really enjoyed listening to this book! All of Kelley Armstrong books are great, and this didn't disappoint me at all.
As soon as I finish writing this, I'm going to buy the next one on Audible. I've read all the books in the series, and loved them. Listening to them is even better!
Kelley Armstrong is one of my favorite authors, I love all of her books.

I give up

I've listened to fifty some chapters of this book and nothing has happened. The main character is annoying but I assumed she would learn as the story progressed. But the story still hasn't progressed. I find myself trying to force myself to listen. I really liked this author's City of the Lost two book series and this one has good reviews, but I just can't keep going. This is the first audible book I haven't finished. Sad I wasted the credit.

A nice change

I wasn't sure what to expect from this new series but I really enjoy her writing and decided to give it a shot. Overall it was a nice change from her typical supernatural novels that I'd become accustomed to. My issue is more with the audible narrator than with the story itself because it likely changed my opinions on the characters due to her voice which was either high and nasally or .. well, sounding like everyone was in their mid to late 70s. I already have the other two books so I'll have to suck it up, the writing was still on par with her other work with some nice twists and character development. I just would've imagined different voices / inflections which probably would've given this 5 stars. I do wish I would have waited before buying 3 of the audio books before listening because I would've gotten the paper novels for the rest. Live and learn!

Nothing special

Nothing special but will continue the series. I am a huge fan of the Otherworld series so I jumped on this one. The reading was ok....again nothing jaw dropping but adequate. I'm hoping it will get better so I'm going to download the next book.

I wish I had read it

I love the author and I am intrigued by this series. However, I wish I had read the book rather than listened to the audio version. I don't, in general, enjoy when there are multiple narrators, and in this case the main reader used such a flat and nasal voice for the main character (and was also inconsistent with the tone) that I cringed at the start of every chapter.
