Publisher's Summary

The number-one New York Times best-selling author of the Otherworld series delivers her most suspenseful novel yet, where the discovery of Cainsville's dark past and the true nature of its inhabitants leads to murder, redemption, love, and unspeakable loss.
Olivia Taylor Jones' life has exploded. She's discovered she is not only adopted, but her real parents are convicted serial killers. Fleeing the media frenzy, she took refuge in the oddly secluded town of Cainsville. She has since solved the town's mysteries and finds herself not only the target of its secretive elders but also her stalker ex-fiancé.
Visions continue to haunt her: particularly a little blond girl in a green sundress who insists she has an important message for Olivia, one that may help her balance the light and darkness within herself. Death stalks both Olivia and the two men most important to her as she desperately searches to understand whether ancient scripts are dictating the triangle that connects them. Will darkness prevail, or does Olivia have the power to prevent a tragic fate?

I'll be reading book 4, but hope it's not as slow.

The narration is poor. The inflection used for the main character makes her sound whiny and childish when she probably is meant to be clever and witty, if a bit quirky. But even if the narration had been better, this installment is not as good as the first two in the series. A good deal of the plot is painfully obvious and yet it takes most of the book for any one to "get it." While the visions help move the story along, I hope the next one doesn't have quite as many dream sequences and concentrates more on the current relationships.

I started this series with high hopes. I enjoy Kelley Armstrong's novels. The first book of this series was alright; not the best work but I could see potential in the plot. I don't mind subpar writing style of the plot is well developed. Unfortunately this wasn't one where the plot helped the writing. The story got worse in book 2, and became almost totally disjointed in book 3. This book left too many loose threads (and not in the good 'oh I get to use my imagination!' way), used too many characters in haphazard and incomplete ways, and didn't round out the story in a way that even left me somewhat satisfied. I kept hoping for more, but honestly shouldn't have wasted my time finishing book 2 OR 3. I can't say I will recommend this to anyone, which is sad since I do love her other works.
