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.

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!

4th installment

While this is still very entertaining, the first three books are much better than this one. This one did not hold the momentum that the others did. Hopefully the 5th will gain back what this one lost.

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)

What happened to the real Kelley Armstrong?

Sorry, But this is not Kelley’s best work. I love the first three books in this series and I hope the last is better than this one.
