Interesting plot and characters. as an older reader, I feel the book is more aimed at a younger reading audience. I am going to try to read the series just to have questions answered.

Enjoyed the book. Lots of character development and good wit. Thought the book was a bit of a "filler" installment though as there was no progress to the central theme of whether the heroine's parents were serial killers. It made me wonder how many books the author intends to stretch the series into.

Between the influx of lore surrounding the Wild Hunt, and the murder mystery—this novel was near impossible to put down. It’s apparent that the victims, town, and mythology are somehow linked, but what it all means is still anyone’s guess. Ricky, Gabriel & Olivia are pawns in the towns game however, it still remains to be seen who the actual players are. I liked how I wasn't quite sure whether the clues were real or just another one of Taylor-Jones’ omens; it made the puzzle even more intriguing because it was near impossible to tell fact from fiction.
I love Olivia's growing friendship with Gabriel, mainly due to Gabriel learning what it is to accept the friendship of another.
I can't wait for Book 3 "Deceptions" due Aug 18, 2015....to far away.

Visions is a thrilling, fast-paced read filled with characters I love! Little by little, Armstrong works in details of this world, letting us discover it along with Olivia. It reads like a mystery, horror and romance all in one, making for a can't-put-it-down read. As if that weren't enough, the growing relationship between Olivia and Gabriel is very interesting. I love his character, his dark, tortured self that we get a deeper insight into in this book. I have a better understanding of what makes him tick from this book, as well as it felt like we got to know Olivia better. I really liked Ricky, he's good for Olivia right now. Can't wait for the next one! Hope it's not another year.

Complex and appealing characters, including a very likeable and strong female protagonist, spooky setting, and intriguing secrets made for another enjoyable read in this series despite the over-the-top bodice ripper-type romance. I look forward to learning more in Armstrong's next installment.

Omens, the first installment in Kelley Armstrong's Cainsville 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 come to light, creating a rift between them 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 certain it's another omen, a sign of impending danger. But then she learns that a troubled young woman with a connection to Cainsville went missing just days earlier--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 Olivia's 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.
