Rituals (Cainsville, #5)
The fifth book and the exciting conclusion to bestselling author Kelley Armstrong's "impossible-to-put-down" Cainsville series, in which she mixes hard-hitting crime writing with phenomenal world-building to create a brand of fiction all her own.When Olivia Taylor-Jones found out she was not actually the adopted child of a privileged Chicago family but of a notorious pair of convicted serial killers, her life exploded. Running from the fall-out, she found a refuge in the secluded but oddly welcoming town of Cainsville, Illinois, but she couldn't resist trying to dig out the truth about her birth parents' crimes. She began working with Gabriel Walsh, a fiendishly successful criminal lawyer who also had links to the town; their investigation soon revealed Celtic mysteries at work in Cainsville, and also entangled Olivia in a tense love triangle with the calculating Gabriel and her charming biker boyfriend, Ricky. Worse, troubling visions revealed to Olivia that the three of them were reenacting an ancient drama pitting the elders of Cainsville against the mysterious Huntsmen with Olivia as the prize.In the series' fifth and final novel, not only does Gabriel's drug addict mother, who he thought was dead, make a surprise reappearance, but Kelley Armstrong delivers a final scary and surprising knock-out twist. It turns out a third supernatural force has been at work all along, a dark and malevolent entity that has had its eye on Olivia since she was a baby and wants to win at any cost.

    February 20, 2017:The Canadian publisher is showing 400 pages, the UK publisher is showing 496 pages. WHAT IS THE TRUTH?!February 2, 2017:Now sites are showing that the book is 400 pages, making it the shortest one in the series. NooooooooooooooJanuary 30, 2017:The cover is up! It's a bit underwhelming, given this is the final book, but I'll reserve my harshest of judgments until I read the book and see how it ties into the story.January 7, 2017:Two synopses have made their way to the Internet!

It's a bit underwhelming, given this is the final book, but I'll reserve my harshest of judgments until I read the book and see how it ties into the story.January 7, 2017:Two synopses have made their way to the Internet! Sounds like there's a third supernatural force that makes themselves known in this book - a far more evil and chaotic one. One that's been lurking ever since Olivia was born. I'm intrigued.Also - sites are reporting that Rituals is 496 pages, making it the longest book in the series. Sign me the heck up.July 13, 2016:I've just read the first two chapters and holy guacamole, this seems like the best one yet. How will I ever make it through this 13 month wait?!May 25, 2016:Gahhhh, this is going to be such a painful wait. I can't believe there's only one book left in the series! The rational side of me says the wait is good - it'll allow me to cherish the series and accept that it is coming to its end. The irrational, completely obsessed fangirl side of me says that I NEED to know more NOW! You can guess which is the far more dominant side.

    3/12/17: "... but Kelley Armstrong delivers a final scary and surprising knock-out twist.

It always works out totally great when authors introduce big, new, never-detected-before enemies at the very end of a story. :|
