about

In the exciting bestselling new novel in Kelley Armstrong's compelling Cainsville series, Olivia realizes that she is at the heart of a tug-of-war between ancient forces--and that everyone around her risks becoming collateral damage.
    

When Olivia's life exploded--after she found out she was not the only child of a privileged Chicago family, but of a notorious pair of serial killers--she found a refuge in the oddly secluded but welcoming town of Cainsville, Illinois. Working with Gabriel Walsh, a precociously successful criminal lawyer with links to the town, she managed to partially clear her parents' name in an investigation that also revealed darker forces at work in the town that had offered her a haven.
     Fleeing Cainsville after she is almost killed, Olivia finds herself not only the target of the Cainsville elders and of the Huntsmen, but also of her ex-fiancé, James, who stalks her and even tries to have her kidnapped. All this as her feelings for Ricky deepen, and confusingly her feelings for Gabriel too. Visions continue to haunt her: particularly a little blond girl in a green sundress who insists she has an important message for Olivia, and holds out in her palm a black stone and a white stone that swirl together to create a balance of light and dark. Death stalks them all, as Olivia desperately searches to understand whether ancient scripts are dictating the triangle that links her to Gabriel and Ricky, or whether she has the power to change the tragic outcome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Great third installment in the series. I am so glad I waited until the series was (almost) finished to start reading, it would have been torture to wait in-between books. I love the characters and the lore. I cant wait to find out how this story ends. I could not put the book down. #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MORE PLEASE Olivia is a badass and I can't get enough of her. The dynamic she has with Gabriel drives me nuts (in a good, please-let-it-change kind of way), I am obsessed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kelley Armstrong does not disappoint Much in line with her Women of the Underworld Series, this series follows all the supernatural inclinations. There is no great mystery really, it's pretty easy to figure out what is going on, but the characters are lovely as always. The series is enjoyable and the books are quick to read. If you're looking for fun please give Cainsville a read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cainsville I love this series! In this installment we get more info about the triangle that is Liv/Eden, Ricky and Gabriel. We also get some chapters from Gabriel's POV which were awesome. It was nice to get a glimpse of what and who made him the way he is. I didn't like that not a lot of this book actually took place in Cainsville. Despite what's going on there and the elders, I do like that little town. A big question is answered in this book, but I won't give it away. I can't wait for the next book in the series even though I know it's going to be a long wait...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I hope there's more! I really liked this one! I think I may have preferred the first one, but I do like what everything was built up to in this book. I was a little unsatisfied with the ending, but that's probably because I'm biased towards certain characters. I also felt some of the twists were a bit more predictable. I really hope there's more coming!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Obsessed with this series!! Much like the first two books in the series, I couldn't put Deceptions down. I don't want to wait another YEAR for the fourth book to be released.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thrilling Book 3 of this 5 part series was as thrilling as the first two books. We know a lot more now, but the main issues are still unresolved and it looks like a resolution Liv can accept is next to impossible. The truth about Liv's parents came as a real surprise to me, and I think that's why I enjoy Ms. Armstrong's stories so much: she continues to engage and enthral me. I look forward to the final two books in this series, because I just don't know where she will go from here, and that makes me want to read it all the more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4.25 stars-intoxicating and addicting 4.25 stars-- DECEPTIONS is the third installment (of five) in Kelley Armstrong’s adult Cainsville paranormal /fantasy series focusing on Olivia Taylor Jones’s (aka Eden Larsen) and her struggles to prove, one way or another, that her birth parents Pam and Todd Larsen may or may not be the notorious serial killers who murdered eight people, over twenty years before. Olivia’s continuing search for the truth finds our heroine facing the past, the present and the future through nightmares, memories, and magical travels. Cainsville is a small town in Illinois, secluded away from the rest of the world, while its’ inhabitants of otherworldly beings struggle to keep their dying species alive. But a battle between the dark and light finds Olivia caught in a world she knows nothing about and has been forced to make choices that affect everyone and everything that she knows. Along with Gabriel Walsh-her mother’s former attorney and Olivia’s friend and current boss- Olivia continues to ‘see’ omens and portents of death and destruction in her search for answers about her present and her past. Olivia’s visions find our heroine entering the dreamscape and memories of long ago; a void or wasteland of visions, flashbacks and a consciousness that aren’t her own. Olivia will be witness to horrific acts of violence and death; her psyche will be forced to accept that which she is unable to understand. All clues lead to everywhere but nowhere; nothing is as it appears to be. Magic covers a host of sins-some sins run closer to the truth than others. Once again, Kelley uses Celtic lore, myths, magic, fabled legends and supernatural beings to reveal a storyline filled with mystery, suspense and the fear of the unknown. There are Druids, Elves, Fae and other paranormal creatures all vying for Olivia’s attention-some are portents of death or disaster, while others seek Olivia for their own agendas. The potential for a love triangle between Olivia, Gabriel and Ricky continues to build although Olivia’s heart currently belongs to only one man. The underlying sexual tension between Olivia and Gabriel is high; the attraction and impassioned desire is intense. Gabriel breaks my heart and I am unsure as to his future happiness, if any at all. I am not a fan of the ‘love-triangle’ trope-someone will always be hurt and in many cases it is the reader whose heart will break regardless of the outcome of the love triangle. DECEPTIONS is a wonderfully detailed and amazing storyline that reveals many secrets and stories; the truth about what happened years before; and the reasons Olivia’s parents are currently serving time for the murders they may or may not have committed. Kelley Armstrong takes the reader into a fantasy world where the future of Cainsville rests upon the outcome of Olivia’s choices and acceptance. There are moments of heartbreak and sorrow; mystery and suspense; action, death and destruction. The premise is intoxicating and addicting; the characters are intense, enthralling and magical; the happily ever after is still to come.

Editorial Reviews

“Kelley Armstrong has paranormal elements in her classic mysteries but there are no ghouls, ghosts, werewolves or fairies and that’s why readers who loathe crossovers will love this series. It’s smart, cleverly plotted and really well-written and you don’t have to ignore the vampires to get to the good stuff. Read it, but get the previous two. You’ll want the whole story to date.” —Margaret Cannon, The Globe and Mail   “Sometimes big, bad things really do come in small packages and no one is more adept at unwrapping them than she, making Deceptions a paranormal tale beautifully written and told.” —Providence Journal   “Deceptions is a ‘must read’ for fans of the Cainsville series. . . . Armstrong maintains that edgy atmosphere I loved in the first two books, and the interaction between characters, main and secondary, continues to keep that sense of mystery alive.” —Impressions of a Reader   “Deceptions is a high-quality page-turner. . . . The characterization is thorough, the psychiatric care facility is fascinating, and the piece-by-piece reveals are handled well.” —Tez Says   “Once again, Kelley uses Celtic lore, myths, magic, fabled legends and supernatural beings to reveal a storyline filled with mystery, suspense and the fear of the unknown. . . . Deceptions is a wonderfully detailed and amazing storyline that reveals many secrets and stories. . . . The premise is intoxicating and addicting; the characters are intense, enthralling and magical; the happily ever after is still to come.” —The Reading Café   “I can’t wait to find out what happens next.” —Inside of a Dog   “I FREAKING LOVE THIS SERIES!!!! I think I’ve read more books by this author than any other author. I am just impressed and in love with her writing style, the way she weaves the threads of each story. I am just amazed and I can’t seem to put her books down!” —Awesome Book Nuts
