Omens

Omens

‘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.’ – #1 international bestselling author Linwood Barclay

‘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!’ – New York Times bestselling author Lisa Gardner

A life shattered in one moment.

Olivia Jones has lived a life of privilege and good fortune. But on the eve of her wedding she discovers two shocking facts. One – she was adopted. Two – her biological parents are notorious serial killers.

A young woman forced on the run.

With her life in immediate danger, Liv must face reality in the most brutal way. But then she is confronted with a tantalising hope – is it possible her parents are innocent?

And the mysterious town that gave her sanctuary. At a price.

Arriving at the remote town of Cainsville, Liv believes she has found the perfect place to hide while she fights to discover the truth. But Cainsville is no ordinary town – and Liv’s arrival was no accident…

Gripping, utterly original, sensational new thriller series from international bestseller Kelley Armstrong

Reviews

I am not a fan of mysteries that cross over into other genres, and I don't like books that begin with infant narrators. So when I tell you that, despite that, Omens kept me reading on, you can bet it's a good book. . . . A clever whodunit with some very nice twists and the fantasy actually works.
MARGARET CANNON, THE GLOBE AND MAIL
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 GARDNER, NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF TOUCH & GO
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.
