#BookReview Visions by Kelley Armstrong (@KelleyArmstrong)

Visions by Kelley Armstrong
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Omens, the first installment in Kelley Armstrong’s exciting new series, introduced Olivia Taylor-Jones, daughter of notorious serial killers, and Gabriel Walsh, the self-serving, morally ambiguous lawyer who became her unlikely ally. Together, they chased down a devious killer and partially cleared her parents of their horrifying crimes.

Their success, however, is short-lived. While Olivia takes refuge in the old, secluded town of Cainsville, Gabriel’s past mistakes have come to light, creating a rift between the pair just when she needs his help the most.

Olivia finds a dead woman in her car, dressed to look like her, but the body vanishes before anyone else sees it. Olivia’s convinced it’s another omen, a sign of impending danger. But then she learns that a troubled young woman went missing just days ago—the same woman Olivia found dead in her car. Someone has gone to great lengths to kill and leave this young woman as a warning. But why? And what role has her new home played in this disturbing murder?

Olivia’s effort to uncover the truth places her in the crosshairs of old and powerful forces, forces that have their own agenda, and closely guarded secrets they don’t want revealed.


The Cainsville series has become a favorite of mine after I read a short novella and the first book in the series. I finished this book a while back, and I have book 3 and 4 waiting to be read. This is a great series, perfect if you like urban fantasy. Now, this is a series that probably is best read in order. I've read two novellas that contained spoilers, but I'm used to reading books out of order.

Visions story continues after the story in Omens. Olivia may have made some success in her parents' murder cases, but she has still a lot to do to clear them. If, of course, they now are really innocent. However, with the dead woman found in her car that looks just like here does she realize that danger is not over for her. Thankfully she has the mysterious Gabriel by her side. Now, she just has the figure out who killed the woman and why?

In Omen's did we get an introduction to Olivia, Gabriel and the rest of the characters. We also got an introduction to Cainsville, this little picturesque town that seems to hide some secrets. I have come to like both Olivia and Gabriel very much and I intrigued by the little town. In Visions, we get to know more about  Cainsville and the people that live there. Let's just say that it's not a normal little town. I'm looking forward to reading the next book to learn more. 

As for the killing of the woman, is that just the start. It seems that some women are being targeted, but why? And, is Olivia in danger? And, can the omens she sees save her life? It's a fast read book, with a thrilling story and I'm looking forward to reading the next book!
