Pressestimmen

Praise for Visions

“[The] chilling ending leaves just enough unresolved to hook readers for the next installment.” - Publishers Weekly

PRAISE FOR KELLEY ARMSTRONG'S OMENS

“One of the best new series debuts this year!  With its compelling characters and completely original set up, OMENS delivers a powerful combination of suspenseful thrills and supernatural chills.  I can't wait to read more!”
-Lisa Gardner, New York Times bestselling author of Touch & Go
 
“Like the creepy, spooky town of Cainsville, Kelley Armstrong's OMENS lured me in. I was too busy, way too busy for this book, which, through a series of surprises and sleights of hand, had me conspiring for ways to get back to the gripping story, the colorfully bizarre cast of characters, and the clever, strong, smart heroine at its center. Don't pick this book up if you have anything else to do. It will grab you by the collar and won't let you up for air until it's good and ready. And once you’re done, you won't soon forget it.”
-Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author of In the Blood
 
“Cainsville might be a nice place to visit, but I'm too creeped out to live there. Luckily, Armstrong isn't, and her dispatches from this village filled with sinister secrets are going to be keeping her readers up well into the night.”
-Linwood Barclay, #1 international bestselling author 
 
“Urban fantasy powerhouse Armstrong (the Otherworld series) begins the Cainsville series with a gripping thriller-paced novel featuring a young woman who learns that her wealthy parents adopted her after her biological parents were convicted of being serial killers. Mind control, gunplay, and double crosses will keep readers on edge to the last page.”
-Publishers Weekly
 
“Through first class writing and characters—including the town of Cainsville itself—that leap off the pages, Armstrong has penned a tale that I, for one, can’t wait to see continue.”
-Suspense Magazine
 
“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.”
-Booklist

Kurzbeschreibung

Olivia Jones is smart, capable, loyal... and the daughter of convicted serial killers. Taking refuge in the mysterious town of Cainsville, she is busy investigating her parent's case. But when the body of a missing girl is dumped in her car, she is forced to change tack. Trouble is, there's only one person who can help her - the charismatic, morally ambiguous lawyer Gabriel Walsh. The one man she has sworn never to trust again.

Gabriel and Olivia are convinced that the killer is still at large in Cainsville. But secrets have a habit of staying buried in this eerily friendly town. And digging too deep has deadly consequences...

A twisting and atmospheric standalone thriller, Visions is also book two in Kelley Armstrong's Cainsville series.

Note: this is book two in the “Cainsville” mystery series and the books rely heavily on each other, plot-wise. So I don't recommend to start here, but with “Omens”.

Review
As with the first book, I was so captivated by Olivia's world that I couldn't really snap out of it and am even now thinking about it all. One could say that this series really sucked me right in and I still love every second of it.
Sadly, I can't tell you much about the plot without spoiling it big time. I'll do what I can, though.

The story sets in just a day after the events in “Omens”: Olivia is at her former home to get a few clothes and stuff and finds the body of a woman dressed and made look like her. Spooked, she calls Gabriel, but when he arrives, the body is gone. But after the events the two of them went through, he believes her immediately. The missing body [and it reappears at times, just to keep things creepy] is the starting point to an investigation Olivia and Gabriel launch and it becomes more obvious by the day that there is a very supernatural angle to it all. And clues pop up that lead to Cainsville. Speaking of Cainsville, Olivia finally finds out about Cainsville, not all of it, but the most important parts. The big secret so to speak. And her deduction is flawless! Not only that, but how she plays it, is just awesome. She is so in the top three of my “most adorable UF kick-a** heroines”!

But there is a lot happening all at once, not just the search for the body, the woman's killer and the connection to Olivia [which takes the backseat the first half of the book]. There is a lot of character development, mostly with Gabriel, but others as well.

HASH(0x975beb7c) von 5 Sternen What a Difference a Few Weeks Can Make! 21. August 2014
Von Paranormal Bites - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
What a difference a few weeks make…Omens may have introduced Olivia Taylor-Jones and Gabriel Walsh to the world, but Visions shows them in an entirely new light. Gone are the innocent socialite in the midst of discovering a crazy new world pulled from her own nightmares, and the cold-hearted, unfeeling thug of a lawyer who has attached himself to her side, intent on taking her for a ride. In their place we find a confident young woman who is more than ready to take the world by the balls and an “onion” of a man who gets even more complex as Olivia persistently begins to peel his layers back.

While working on her parents’ case in an effort to prove them innocent of a series of grizzly murders, Olivia begins to discover more about her past, her birth parents, and the people and community that she has become to think of as ‘home’. She discovers that she has a talent for investigation and the tenacity to unravel spider webs of lies, half-truths, and misdirection. In the process of focusing on others, she inadvertently discovers herself and realizes that she likes what she finds.

For his part, as Gabriel re-enters his quest to prove his client innocent, he does so with the single-mindedness of a thoroughbred race horse – head down, blinders on, eye on the prize. The funny thing about blinders however is the inability to see what is coming at your side. Working with Olivia on the case starts as a means-to-an-end for the defence lawyer with the dubious reputation. He never even considers the impact that one spoiled socialite could possibly have on his life until the new working arrangement becomes both a blessing and a curse for someone with so many dark secrets of his own.

The partnership gets off to a false start or two, but eventually they come to develop a tentative trust and respect for one another. Their relationship is a fragile thing that can either be irrevocably destroyed by mishandling or strengthened and grown over time to blossom into a beautiful new organism. Only time will tell if Gabriel will continue to be his own worst enemy.

While both characters work on their own issues other secondary characters begin to become fleshed out as well, adding depth and further complications to the mix. Every answer leads to a new question (or ten) as this first-class mystery series continues to grow and that is the true beauty of Cainsville. The suspense/mystery is the main storyline here, opening author Kelley Armstrong to an entirely new audience, while the paranormal elements are strong enough to keep current fans happily engaged at the same time.

As a series, Cainsville reminds me of the early Sookie Stackhouse books written by best selling author Charlaine Harris, but I believe that it may be even better. The ‘whodunit’ mystery of the serial killings is realistic enough to be a real-life case, while the paranormal elements add complexity without piling on the camp. The balance of mystery/paranormal/romance elements is just right – so right in fact that I can easily see Cainsville becoming Armstrong’s second series to be converted for the screen. While I wait for that to happen however I’ll happily keep reading.

HASH(0x975bec30) von 5 Sternen 500 pages of 5-star epicsauce! 19. August 2014
Von RabidReads - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
As a long time Kelley Armstrong fan, I hate to say this but I didn’t like OMENS. I just couldn’t connect with the characters, it was more psychological thriller than urban fantasy, and readers were left with an exorbitant amount of unanswered questions. I honestly expected the worst when I started reading VISIONS, instead… I absolutely freaking LOVED IT! I instantly clicked with Olivia, Gabriel & Ricky, the plot was more closely tied to the main story arc & the town of Cainsville, and we get answers—not many, but enough to make me feel like we’re making some progress. My do-I-really-want-to-read-this dilemma was transformed overnight into an unrelenting craving for book 3. VISIONS is 500 pages of 5-star epicsauce!

I was immediately sucked in by the quality of Armstrong’s storytelling and writing; 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. There’s a game afoot, and Ricky, Gabriel & Olivia are the pawns however, it still remains to be seen who the actual players are. I liked how I was never 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 won’t go into the lore seeing how none of it is mentioned in the blurb, but I will go so far as to say that I’m no longer doubting this book’s urban fantasy status.

I found myself loving Gabriel more and more with every new page I read. In OMENS, he was stiff and prickly, and although he is still both of those things, he’s also cocky, brave and intelligent. His actions say one thing, but his body language says another, and I really liked how Armstrong was able to capture the minute changes in his posture and facial expression. I don’t believe that I have ever met a character quite like Gabriel which makes him a real joy to read about because he’s just so unpredictable. Olivia grew on me quite a bit in this installment as well; she still makes a couple of stupid mistakes—like following her cat into a creepy, abandoned house—but otherwise seemed to have wised-up.

There was even a bit of romance in this novel which surprised me while also being a welcomed addition. It’s a love triangle, but not. There’s definitely something going on between Liv and Gabriel; I’m just not exactly sure what it is yet. It’s still early in the series, so it’s hard to say for sure what the author has planned. The off-scene sex helped bring some much needed heat to an otherwise dark narrative, and Armstrong’s foreplay is better than most writers’ on page romp sessions anyway. I really liked Olivia and Ricky’s relationship; he’s exactly what she needs at this point in her life, plus he’s damned fine. There’s a Harley scene that’ll have you calling up your friends with bikes just to give it a try. I suspect that this thing with Gallagher is only a fling, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t enjoy the ride while it lasts!

Double-entendres, twists, lore, secrets, and hunktastic men—VISIONS was everything I wanted book 1 to be, and more!

HASH(0x910bb99c) von 5 Sternen Engrossing 25. August 2014
Von Jessica - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
My biggest complaint with this book/series is having to wait another year for the next installment. Kelley Armstrong remains one of my favorite writers. She does suspense and relationships so well. There is a level of darkness that can be present in the books that just sucks you in and makes you wonder just what is will happen next. I love reading about the fae and that type of mythology. Presenting in this manner as well, makes the learning process all the more intriguing.

My only other complaint is how slow the answers are in being revealed. However, this book and the last only cover weeks of time, not years. When you look at it that way, it makes a bit more sense. These are secrets that have been hidden for decades. It's going to take longer than a few weeks to uncover.

I love Olivia's growing friendship with Gabriel, mainly due to Gabriel learning what it is to accept the friendship of another. I've some theories on their friendship as well as those other people in Olivia's life. Some I look forward to with expectation, others with a bit of dread and sadness (if I read those hints/omens (?) correctly). I don't know how many books Ms Armstrong is planning on for this series, but I look forward to the ride.

HASH(0x90dd8a14) von 5 Sternen My vision is shaky... 3. September 2014
Von AyJay - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Well it had to happen sooner or later; I've read a Kelley Armstrong book that I feel is below her usual standards.

_

On one hand it was still an fast paced read with a mystery that kept me guessing 'til the end, but on the other hand I disliked how both the mystery and the ongoing plot arc took a back seat to Liv's love life - I had to skim parts because it both bored and wound me up. I also think this subplot will be a huge part of the next book, so that has also dampened my excitement for the final part of the trilogy too.

I also felt irritated with some characters because of their disagreements that could have been solved in five minutes if the supposedly adult characters had simply sat down and talked, and other characters because they continue to talk in riddles for what seems like the sheer hell of it.

I'll probably still check out the final book in the trilogy at some point to get closure, but I don't regard it as a must read...

HASH(0x91450fe4) von 5 Sternen Not quite as good as Omens 8. September 2014
Von andrea.nz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Kelley Armstrong is one of my favourite authors. I have re-read many of her Otherworld series numerous times. I pre-ordered Omens and read it very quickly and eagerly awaited Visions. I had just started reading another book when Visions was delivered onto my kindle and quickly finished it. However, it took longer than I thought to finish Visions. It's not that I didn't enjoy it, it's just that it suffered from 'middle book syndrome'. It felt like there were too many questions and not enough answers. I know we will get the answers in the next book but I did feel that more could have been accomplished here.

I liked the Olivia in the first book, but here she was harder to like. She became harder, possibly because she is coming to terms with her parents, up-bringing and the secrets of Cainsville. Gabriel is still full of secrets and I didn't feel that he grew enough. As this is a trilogy, I am hoping that Armstrong gives us more of Gabriel in the final instalment. Ricky is an interesting character, but the relationship between him and Olivia blossomed too quickly and they was slightly cheesy in places.

The cliffhanger ending was annoying and I hope that the 3rd book in this trilogy comes out quickly. I will reread both Omens and Visions before I finish the trilogy and maybe they will read better together than they do separately.
