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 ambitionsBut 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 Reread 0803 Despite my relative disappointment in Deceptions and déception disappointment in French Oh the IRONY I'm still super excited about the 4th book coming out next week so I decided to reread them all during my vacations STARTING NOW WOOT First you buy me a mocha Then you let me help you hide a body Now you take me to a biker clubhouse Best Day Ever Wow Color me surprised I certainly didn't start Omens with high expectations and yet It kept me on the edge of my seat right up to the end The first thing you need to know is that it is NOT Urban Fantasy by any means Although I was than okay with that because UF never was my favorite genre that's an understatement the blurb and the shelves can be misleading and you would be disappointed if that's what you expect Think Criminal Minds meets Supernatural A murder investigation with sparks of paranormal A mystery that will keep you guessing the whole time glued to the pages where you need to pay attention at every omen and even every dream Just sayin' I sat there feeling sick and shocked and angry most of all furious with myself for being such a fool such a damned foolThis wasn't a game It was serious and ugly and I wanted nothing to do with it And yet in wanting nothing to do with it I was a hypocrite As for the writing don't expect purple prose or beautiful sentences here Yet despite the pretty generic writing I enjoyed it immensely for what it is to the point true And it works I genuinely laughed Smiled Feared Freaked out Ate it up If Olivia's POV in first person past tense owns the show the story is interspersed with passages in random people's POV that are told in third person How unsettling as it sounds strangely it didn't bother me at all but on the contrary I thought that it added interesting layers to the story But what I preferred were by far the dialogues Indeed they were clever and funny in a non show off way the kind of private joke funny that doesn't allow me to take a sentence off context and say LOOK AT THIS THIS IS HILARIOUS Nope Yet in context? With all the characters' dynamics background? I laughed I giggled At the most random partsTo sum up we have An enthralling mystery to resolve ☑An interesting background filled with fae folklore ☑Several scenes really creepy ☑ A compelling writing ☑ In my opinion Kelley Armstrong handled her characterization perfectly uietly she set her characters in motion and just let the reader manage them scrutinize them I can't express how much I loved how she let me forge my own opinion without never telling me who they're supposed to be Indeed she never tells us what to think and that's brilliant and so so rare Actually it's when we stumble upon books like this one that we realize how often we're told how the characters are in many books This character is nice He is hot She is mean Not an once of this telling strategy with Omens characters and I'm so grateful for thatBoth main characters are manipulative and selfish BEST FEEL EVER Oh also their banter is fabulous The heroine Olivia is relatable believable willing to be strong but uite stung by the news as everyone would be how would you react if you learnt that you were adopted and that your biological parents were famous serial killers? Huh? Does she hide behind her soon to be senator fiancé? She's going to handle it her way thank you very much Courageous this one Frankly I cared for her from the start Don't get fooled though she's not our perfect little one faaaaar from it but she's ready to do anything to unravel the truth and we follow her wanderings like nice puppets Trust me Gabriel is right she does have a backbone and I loved that You're not shooting the cat It would leave a messTrue Also the killing of small animals is the entrance ramp onto the serial killer highway I paused Damn I bet the cat knows that He picked me because I can't hurt him or I'd be fulfilling my biological destiny So I'm screwed The cat stays Unless you'll kill him I glanced at him How does fifty bucks sound? SPOILER ALERT Don't worry nobody harms the cat Yet I kid I kidNow Gabriel My nephew is a manipulative scheming unscrupulous son of a bitch And those are his good ualities I'm a sucker for multi layered and uite untrustworthy characters that's why it won't come as a surprise that I'm completely drawn to Gabriel's character and not in a romantic way here's a man who is fascinating and not because he's a love interest but because what I saw of his personality I know Not eight packs or other shining things guys always have in books appeals to me and above that intrigues me The problem I usually have with controlling or powerful male leads lies with the fact that the heroine spends time drooling over them than standing for herself there's no romance here therefore I can focus on his moral ambiguity without feeling the need to rage I already said that than the characters alone the characters' dynamics are important to me and influence my reading experience Let me get to know them first We'll see about the romance later maybe He had nothing to feel guilty about If he knew one thing about life it was this look out for yourself No one else would do it for you Gabriel isn't a good guy and I sure don't want him to be He's bossy but trust me Olivia knows how to handle him and is even bossy perhaps To be frank it pleased me to no end to see her snapping at him and analyzing his behavior Really I'm shameless I loved seeing her destabilize him and push his limits and I can't wait to see how their relationship will evolveTo sum up we have Strong and interesting heroine ☑Captivating male lead ☑Well developed secondary characters ☑A cat yes that's important duh ☑Awesome dialogues between the characters ☑Real character development ☑► Kelley Armstrong offers us a strong debut for Olivia and Gabriel's story I will definitely recommend it to any reader who loves mystery and good characterization As far as I'm concerned I'm off to read the seuel right now For of my reviews please visit
