My all time favorite writer has been #1 New York Best Selling Author Kelley Armstrong for many, many years. I still remember browsing my local Barnes & Nobles to find the first book that introduced me to my favorite genre, Paranormal Romance. The book was Bitten and it is now a television series on the Syfy Network.
Since then, Kelley Armstrong has written many more novels, short stories, and anthologies. Her work encompasses both adult and young adult readers. Today I want to introduce you to her newest series of books, The Cainsville Series.
Omens ~ Book 1 of the Cainsville Series
This is the first book in the series and introduces us to our major characters. Olivia is our lead female, and I love that she is strong and independent, but starts out having to learn and acquire these attributes. Olivia's life is turned upside down as this adventure begins, and after many trials she is lead to the quaint, but mysterious little town of Cainsville.
I love the undertone to this book; you know something strange is going on, but you can't quite place it. It is very special the way Kelley Armstrong uses the subtle hints to alert you that there is more than meets the eye in Cainsville, and I adore that she is taking her time revealing this small town's secrets.

Visions ~ Book 2 of the Cainsville Series
The second book picks up immediately after the events in Omens. I love how Kelley Armstrong carries the story on seamlessly, almost as if the first book never ended and you are just continuing the story, and what a story it is! Things start to get a little creepy in Cainsville, and we also get to learn more about what is really going on with those town elders.
The story takes giant strides with this book. Characters are given greater depth and the reader is kept captivated by the continuous turmoil of emotions that are presented throughout. Characters you love to hate are more lovable, and characters you aren't so sure about start to take position in our heart.
Deceptions ~ Book 3 of the Cainsville Series
Full Review of this book is coming shortly. This book will be released on August 18, 2015.
