Surprisingly good for a mixed genre novel. Interesting characters and a decent ending. ( )

Really good series about a rich woman who suddenly discovers she's not only adopted but her real parents are convicted serial killers. Then things get really weird as she discovers she's the embodiment of a myth reliving it again. Her choices will impact 2 communities. ( )

I read the novella Lost Souls a while back and loved it. Since I never read any of the Cainsville books before I Lost Souls was I eager to get my hands on the first book in the series (and the second and third).

As a big fan of urban fantasy was I curious to see how this series would turn out. Luckily the first book is really good and it was great to get the backstory for the characters in Lost Souls.

Olivia has it all, that's until it's revealed that she was adopted as a child and that her real parents are serial killers. Now, her mother can't stand her, her fiance is (or mostly his mother) hesitant about marrying her and the press is after her. She needs a job and somewhere safe to go. And, through weird events does she learn of a town called Cainsville...

Omens is a great book. I love the mix of paranormal and crime and Olvia is a very likable character. Cainsville intrigues me, you can really feel that the town is hiding things. That it looks normal on the surface, but underneath ... well, there is definitely something weird about the town and the ones living there. Then, there is Gabriel. Olivia doesn't know what she will make of him, he used to be her real mother's lawyer, but now there is bad blood between them. Now he wants to help her, well for a price of course.

Omens is just the kind of book I love to read. I love weird little towns in the middle of nowhere and Cainsville is just the kind of town that I just know have a lot of secrets. The first book managed very well to introduce the characters. I'm curious to learn more about Olivia, her parents, Gabriel etc. If you like urban fantasy will you love this book! ( )

I've previously read Kelley Armstrong's Rockton series, which I found thoroughly entertaining and impressive. I don't think this particular series is for me, however. There's a touch of paranormal, but it pretty much boils down to a whodunit. Much of the plot moves forward via events that are beyond normal realms, and there are clues as to what it could be, but ultimately no reveal is offered. I had the feeling of having left something unresolved, when I finished reading Omens .

Olivia is very happy. She's wealthy, engaged to a wonderful man who she loves and who loves her, she works at a fulfilling job, and she's decided to return to college for a higher degree. And then one night the news breaks: she's adopted, and her biological parents are notorious serial killers. This sends Olivia reeling, her identity in question. Who is she really? What might she have inherited from her biological parents?

Desperate to get away from the media, Olivia runs and finds herself in Cainsville, a very mysterious town that is much more than it seems. She also finds out that she, herself, is more than she seems, because she can see and read signs.

When Olivia's biological mother asks for Olivia to visit in prison, Olivia says no, but then reconsiders hoping to get some questions answered. What she finds is a mystery that could lead to proving her biological parents innocence of two of the eight murders laid at their feet.

Despite the presence of the supernatural in Cainsville, this book is far more a mystery than anything else. Because I enjoy supernatural mysteries this worked for me. I'll read the next book in this series. ( )

In the opening chapters of this new series, best-selling author Kelley Armstrong seems to be venturing into dark thriller territory, but the story soon cedes ground to the author’s usual supernatural fare, when Olivia begins having premonitions.

Armstrong also does an excellent job of writing her heroine. Although Olivia initially seems like an annoyingly over-privileged society girl, Armstrong transforms her into someone the reader wants to root for. It’s surprising how smart and fierce Olivia turns out to be once she’s given the chance to break out of her self-absorbed bubble.

The novel’s strengths are the characters of Olivia, Gabriel, and Cainsville itself, but it’s difficult to care about whether Olivia’s parents have been wrongly convicted. Armstrong skilfully entices her readers to crave the next instalment in the series, but frustratingly leaves many questions unanswered.

[Grace's reply when Olivia says she called him.]
'I wouldn't call Gabriel Walsh if I was (sic) on fire.' She pursed her lips. 'No, I might. To sue everyone responsible -- from the person who lit the match to those who made my clothes. But I'd wait until the fire was out. Otherwise, he'd just stand there until I was burned enough for a sizable settlement.' (chapter 18)
Gabriel knocked at my door at ten to six. When I let him in, he sniffed the air, frowning slightly. Then he noticed my guest.

'You have a cat.'

'Not by choice.' I shut down my laptop. 'He came in last night chasing a mouse and apparently he likes it here. I kicked him out in the morning and found him at my door when I came back. I left him in the hall, but he started caterwauling. Grace came. She tried taking him outside. He scratched her arms, so she threw him in here and told me I have a cat.' (chapter 37)
