about

In the #1 national bestseller and second book in Kelley Armstrong's exciting new Cainsville series, Olivia's newly discovered power to read omens leads to the discovery of a gruesome crime with troubling connections to her hometown.
     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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! It was an excellent sequel! I couldn't put the book down. Can't wait to read the next book to see how the story unfolds!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A good sequel! Like I predicted, the paranormal elements are definitely kicked up a notch in this sequel. It's all very interesting, and I'm learning about folklore that I knew very little about, but it's certainly not what keeps drawing me in. I'm 100% here for Olivia. I'm constantly surprised by how much I care for her and how supportive I am about whatever she does. Yes, she doesn't always make the best decisions, but she's fearless in her quest to pursue the truth and vicious in her need to protect what she cares for. I'm still complete trash for her interactions and relationship with Gabriel, and I'd be lying if I said I didn't race through sections simply to find ones with them in it. You learn a lot more about Gabriel in this installment, and slowly but surely, he's letting Olivia more and more into his very guarded life. I really do like Ricky and his contrasting lifestyle (basically the head of a biker gang called Satan's Saints, while earning an MBA at the University of Chicago). He's a total sweetheart, pretty much worshiping the ground Olivia walks on, while not getting in the way of her independent lifestyle. I'm conflicted about my boys. I love them both, but I have feelings about a certain ship which basically screams endgame. While I'm not completely blown away by this series, I'm always compelled to pick up the books and get through them fairly quickly. I've already started the third book, so this series does have crack potential.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I was so enthralled by this book. I finished it in 3 days, I couldn't put it down. I love the lore the are using in this series. A little bit is revealed strategically throughout the book making you want to know what exactly is going on. I love the characters and I feel invested in their story. Dont pick this series up unless you have lots of time to read because that is all you will want to do once you start. Kelley Armstrong is my favorite author. #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Celtic magic and lore 4 stars--VISIONS is the second storyline in Kelley Armstrong’s contemporary adult, paranormal Cainsville mystery/suspense series. Told from alternating first person (Olivia) POV and close third person, VISIONS is the continuing story of Olivia Taylor-Jones aka Eden Larsen-a twenty four year old woman whose biological parents-Todd and Pamela Larsen- were accused of multiple murders and they sit in prison awaiting the truth. Discovering she was adopted and not knowing the truth behind her early years, Olivia finds refuge in the small town of Cainsville where mysterious omens, visions and portents of doom focus their power and intensity at Olivia Taylor-Jones. The people of Cainsville are just as perplexing with their secrets, double speak and touch of magic-everyone in Cainsville is connected and everything happens for a reason. In the first instalment OMENS, Olivia sets out to prove her biological parents are innocent of the charges but VISIONS takes an abrupt turn and the spotlight no longer focuses on proving the Larsen’s innocence but on Olivia’s visions and their connection to the town and people of Cainsville. Using specific animals, speech patterns and language referencing the mythological HUNT, Kelley weaves a tale from long ago and adds contemporary settings and suspense filled action. Kelley Armstrong pulls from Celtic lore, the myths and tales of fabled legends and supernatural magic. In Cainsville, the town is not that far removed from the old ways, and our heroine will learn she has a deeper connection to Cainsville than just a place to escape. The secondary characters all play a role in Olivia’s life. From the café regulars we learn a little more about the people of Cainsville-their history and their connections to one another. When one of their own goes missing, the population of Cainsville appears to be more concerned with Olivia’s research and reaction than with the whereabouts of a young woman whose history is questionable and not without some interesting facts. There is the potential for a love triangle developing as Kelley brings back biker dude/business student Ricky who captures Olivia’s heart but there is also the underlying sexual tension between Olivia and Gabriel-her mother’s former lawyer and the person in whom Olivia will come to depend upon for direction and comfort. Gabriel’s character development was colorful, revealing and not without some heartbreaking realizations. Olivia’s relationship with Ricky brings to question, his connection to Cainsville when the elders push Olivia towards someone else. Because Kelley Armstrong is not known for her sexual or romantic storylines, the sexual imagery is light; mostly implied but the tension is high. Kelley Armstrong forte is the paranormal storyline. With colorful and interesting characters, she cleverly weaves an intense and wondrous series where the past meets the present; where fables become real; where Celtic magic is at the heart of a town where everyone knows your name.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great A great continuation of the Cainsville story, just as good as the first. The intrigue deepens. It was impossible to put down!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this series! This series is almost as good as Armstrong's previous series (Women of the Underworld). With Those books I was able to skip all over the place and not read in any particular order. For the Cainsville series I would recommend reading them in order so you don't miss any of the mystery. The mystery is fairly easy to figure out, but still great fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keep Reading!!!! Book 2 does not disappoint. If you loved book 1 you will love this one even more. Kelley's style of writing and how one sentence flows into the next one is amazing. I could not put this book down and when I did I thought about it all day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As great as the first I believe Kelley Armstrong books should be purchased in bulk. If u are going to start one of her series, I would recommend buying them all at once because you are going to want to move to book two as soon as book one is finished. Like the first in this series, this one does not disappoint. The story continues to develop. I'm currently reading book 4 and i hate having to wait for the next book! #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome read! I love Kelley Armstrong's writing style and have read a lot of her books, paranormal and not. I don't read any paranormal or vampire or werewolf stories, but I WILL if it is written by Kelley Armstrong. I am especially enjoying the Cainsville stories because of the folklore and fairies and omens and visions, etc. Visions picks up where Omens left off and Olivia/Eden is still looking for answers. Gabriel is still looking out for her and there's a love interest with Ricky, the son of the leader of a motorcycle gang. I know, sounds kooky, but the author makes it work. Cainsville is a weird little town and in this book we find out just a little bit more about it and it's inhabitants. I can't wait to read Deceptions and see where the story goes next.
