Publisher's Summary

Number-one New York Times best-selling author Kelley Armstrong begins her new series with Omens, featuring a compelling new heroine thrust into a decades-old murder case and the dark mysteries surrounding her strange new home.
Twenty-four-year-old Olivia Taylor Jones has the perfect life. The only daughter of a wealthy, prominent Chicago family, she has an Ivy League education, pursues volunteerism and philanthropy, and is engaged to a handsome young tech firm CEO with political ambitions.
But Olivia’s world is shattered when she learns that she’s adopted. Her real parents? Todd and Pamela Larsen, notorious serial killers serving a life sentence. When the news brings a maelstrom of unwanted publicity to her adopted family and fiancé, Olivia decides to find out the truth about the Larsens.
Olivia ends up in the small town of Cainsville, Illinois, an old and cloistered community that takes a particular interest in both Olivia and her efforts to uncover her birth parents’ past.
Aided by her mother’s former lawyer, Gabriel Walsh, Olivia focuses on the Larsens’ last crime, the one her birth mother swears will prove their innocence. But as she and Gabriel start investigating the case, Olivia finds herself drawing on abilities that have remained hidden since her childhood, gifts that make her both a valuable addition to Cainsville and deeply vulnerable to unknown enemies. Because there are darker secrets behind her new home and powers lurking in the shadows that have their own plans for her.

Would be better with one narrator

I don't typically object to two narrators, but in this case, I do. The narrator that spoke in first person had the most annoying voice. I listen to audible books every day, and a narrator with a shrill voice can ruin a book. I found myself listening to how annoying her voice was more than what she was actually saying. The second narrator was preferable. Not sure what the point was of having two people reading this book.

An Awesome Start to a New Series

This book is vastly different from Armstrong's "Otherworld" series. It's primarily a murder mystery with just a smattering of the supernatural. Although I have a feeling that the supernatural elements will play a larger part in the rest of the books in the Cainsville series. The could be said for the romance between the two main characters, Olivia and Gabriel. Their relationship is in its infancy. If you're looking for the romance that dominates Armstrong's other novels, then you might be disappointed.

What I liked:
The mystery is completely enthralling
The characters are fascinating and well-developed
The supernatural climate is refreshingly original (at least for me)
Mozhan Marno's narration

What I disliked:
Carine Montbertrand's narration. She didn't do a bad job. I just thought Marno's voice fit the tone of the story better. I found myself wishing Marno had performed the entire book alone.

Most definitely worth a credit.
