Summary
The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Otherworld series delivers her most suspenseful novel yet, where the discovery of Cainsville's dark past and the true nature of its inhabitants leads to murder, redemption, love, and unspeakable loss.

Olivia Taylor Jones's life has exploded. She's discovered she is not only adopted, but her real parents are convicted serial killers. Fleeing the media frenzy, she took refuge in the oddly secluded town of Cainsville. She has since solved the town's mysteries and finds herself not only the target of its secretive elders but also her stalker ex-fianc#65533;.

Visions continue to haunt her: particularly a little blond girl in a green sundress who insists she has an important message for Olivia, one that may help her balance the light and darkness within herself. Death stalks both Olivia and the two men most important to her, as she desperately searches to understand whether ancient scripts are dictating the triangle that connects them. Will darkness prevail, or does Olivia have the power to prevent a tragic fate?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The third installment in Armstrong's popular Cainsville series begins where the events of Visions (2014) ended. Olivia Taylor Jones has left the insular and secretive town of Cainsville and is living in Chicago, working for her protector and friend Gabriel. Her ex-fiancé, James, continues to disrupt her life; she struggles to understand the motivation behind her serial-killing parents' actions; and she is afflicted by visions and nightmares of increasing intensity. Along with her biker boyfriend, Ricky, Olivia must return to Cainsville and confront factions of the supernatural Fae for answers. Nothing is as it seems in Armstrong's aptly named title, though with each passing chapter, Olivia appears to be learning more about her life, past, present, and future. Gabriel and Ricky try to safeguard her, but their relationship with Olivia and each other is strained by a startling revelation. With so many twists and turns in this fast-paced and engaging story, readers new to the series should be directed to Omens (2013), the first installment. Those already hooked on the weird doings in Cainsville will have no reason to be disappointed here.--Clark, Craig Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Armstrong's third Cainsville novel (after Visions) blends aspects of a psychological thriller into her urban fantasy, but the excitement is muffled by the slow-moving narrative, which is becoming a hallmark of the series. After an opener that will confuse even those who read the previous installments, multiple plot lines eventually unfold, and the agendas of various fae factions in Cainsville, Ill., are revealed. Olivia Taylor-Jones's ex-fiancé is stalking her. She continues her investigation, with the help of morally ambivalent lawyer Gabriel Walsh, into the serial murders committed by her birth parents. She also has a burgeoning relationship with Ricky Gallagher, but this insightful M.B.A.-earning gangster in training is mostly a distraction from the central plot. The story's unsettling psychological component involves Olivia's incapacitating-and worsening-visions, which help the underlying puzzle pieces, built around ancient folklore, fit into place. By the story's end, many questions are answered, but whether readers will get that far is debatable. (Aug.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
