Summary
#1 New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong begins her new series with Omens , featuring a compelling new heroine thrust into a decades-old murder case and the dark mysteries surrounding her strange new home.

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. When the news brings a maelstrom of unwanted publicity to her adopted family and fiancé, Olivia decides to find out the truth about the Larsens.

Olivia ends up in the small town of Cainsville, Illinois, an old and cloistered community that takes a particular interest in both Olivia and her efforts to uncover her birth parents' past.

Aided by her mother's former lawyer, Gabriel Walsh, Olivia focuses on the Larsens' last crime, the one her birth mother swears will prove their innocence. But as she and Gabriel start investigating the case, Olivia finds herself drawing on abilities that have remained hidden since her childhood, gifts that make her both a valuable addition to Cainsville and deeply vulnerable to unknown enemies. Because there are darker secrets behind her new home and powers lurking in the shadows that have their own plans for her.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "What would you do if you discovered that you were adopted, and your birth parents were purported serial killers? Twenty-four-year old Olivia Taylor Jones faces this question when her privileged Ivy League existence is fractured by a startling revelation. Traveling to spooky Cainsville, Illinois, to uncover the truth, she joins forces with Gabriel Walsh, her mother's former attorney. Of course, in true Armstrong fashion, the supernatural plays a featured role, as Cainsville harbors some deeply embedded secrets waiting to be unleashed by Olivia's latent paranormal powers. Armstrong, author of the popular Otherworld series, excels at world-building, and this reverse Cinderella story perfectly launches a new series chronicling the irresistibly odd and creepy Cainsville universe. Fantasy fans will be eager to make repeated visits.--Flanagan, Margaret Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Armstrong (the Otherworld series) blends mystery and paranormal romance in the first Cainsville novel, which-despite its length-will frustrate readers with its lack of substance. At age 24, Olivia Taylor-Jones learns she was adopted by her wealthy parents after her birth parents, Pamela and Todd Larsen, were convicted of committing eight ritual murders. On the run from reporters, she makes her way to Cainsville, Ill., an isolated and peculiar small town decorated-or perhaps protected-by numerous gargoyles and populated by inhabitants among whom Olivia's blossoming visions are not extraordinary. Gabriel Walsh, the former lawyer for Pamela Larsen, hunts down Olivia with a business proposition and offers to prepare her to visit Pamela in prison. His commanding presence exudes danger and intrigue, and he and Olivia become enmeshed in a harrowing investigation that may prove the Larsens' innocence. The fantasy elements take a backseat to the mystery, and by book's end little is known about the world Armstrong is constructing. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
