    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.

    Great start to a new series, but... CRINGE!

    Overall, I enjoyed this book. I thought it was well written. I went into this book expecting more of the supernatural aspect that I've come accustomed..Show More »

    Expanding plot

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

    Olivia Taylor Jones' life has exploded. She's discovered she is not only adopted, but her real parents are convicted serial killers. Fleeing the media frenzy, she took refuge in the oddly secluded town of Cainsville. She has since solved the town's mysteries and finds herself not only the target of its secretive elders but also her stalker ex-fiancé.

    I'll be reading book 4, but hope it's not as slow.

    The narration is poor. The inflection used for the main character makes her sound whiny and childish when she probably is meant to be clever and witty..Show More »

    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 ..Show More »

    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 fallout, 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.

    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..Show More »
