Publisher's Summary

The fifth book and the exciting conclusion to best-selling author Kelley Armstrong's "impossible-to-put-down" Cainsville series, in which she mixes hard-hitting crime writing with phenomenal world-building to create a brand of fiction all her own.

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; their investigation soon revealed Celtic mysteries at work in Cainsville and also entangled Olivia in a tense love triangle with the calculating Gabriel and her charming biker boyfriend, Ricky. Worse, troubling visions revealed to Olivia that the three of them were reenacting an ancient drama pitting the elders of Cainsville against the mysterious Huntsmen, with Olivia as the prize.

In the series' fifth and final novel, not only does Gabriel's drug addict mother, whom he thought was dead, make a surprise reappearance, but Kelley Armstrong delivers a final scary and surprising knockout twist. It turns out a third supernatural force has been at work all along, a dark and malevolent entity that has had its eye on Olivia since she was a baby and wants to win at any cost.

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 was very automated, almost computer like and while I got used to it enough to finish the book, I will make decisions on other books based on the narration heard here.

Wonderful conclusion to an enthralling series.

Only wish I could find more writers and readers of this caliber. I enjoyed this long tale.

The series would be better with a single narrator.

Spent the whole first book getting used to the main narrator, who sounds like a middle aged woman rather an early 20-someting. Eventually, I grew to like her. But all the other narrators throughout all the other books were just...off. A good single narrator is usually the way to go (in my opinion). It would have helped this series a lot!

Too long!!!!

If you like fantasy, this book is for you! I didn’t finish the book as it went on & on & on! I disliked Gabriel’s voice. This was not one of her best!

Second Narrator sounded Robotic

The story was quite good but the visa were a little irritating to follow sometimes. The second narrator was inhuman sounding. All and all a good story.

Loved the series, unsure about the final book

Let me start by saying that the series was fantastic. Somehow this final book felted forced. It didn’t seem to really flow and I continually lost interest. I cannot put my finger on the reason for that. I think the ending was good. I simply struggled through the book.
