Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. Every week bloggers share new books that we are eagerly anticipating, and this month I am waiting with bated breath for the third installment in Kelley Armstrong’s Cainsville series: Deceptions.
If you have been following my blog, you would know by now that I’m a huge fan of this series. It is mixture of urban fantasy, psychological thriller and suspense. You have faeries, Welsh mythology, serial killers, and all sorts of morbid affairs happening in the small little town called Cainsville. But Cainsville isn’t your usual cozy town, the people are friendly (suspiciously friendly) and almost everyone there has a hidden agenda particularly the elders who run the place and carry deep dark secrets that Olivia is about to find out.
Poor Olivia has been through so much. Her biological parents are still in prison for false crimes, her friendship with Gabriel is now strained, and her ex fiancé won’t stop stalking her. Oh and she continues to see strange visions that often lead to somebody else’s murder. Even after the events in Visions it looks like Olivia won’t be catching a break anytime soon, not after being on the run again but this time from Cainsville. Here is the synopsis for Deceptions from Goodreads:
Olivia Jones is still searching for the truth but who can she trust when there is deception and betrayal hidden in every shadow? Liv has one secret up her sleeve: a sixth sense that allows her to anticipate danger before it happens. But using this power comes at a risk especially when there are dark forces that want to exploit that power from Liv. Now she has to make a choice: who does she truly love and who can she really trust? Can Olivia save herself without having to loose everything that matters to her the most?
So the synopsis is a little vague but I don’t mind that as it leaves a mystery to the plot. It turns out that what I thought was a trilogy is actually going to be a series as books 4 and 5 will be coming out. It will be interesting to see how Kelley plans to develop the plot and the characters in future books.
