“Never a dull moment when reading the Cainsville series, it keeps you on your toes for sure and captivated by the story.”
~ Under the Covers

After my enjoyment of book 2 (which I read recently) I was pumped to read this last installment in the Cainsville series and finally be caught up again.  DECEPTIONS was just as intriguing as I was expecting but it was also missing a certain spark that I can’t quite put my finger on to make it as good as the previous one.

We are finally starting to understand the puzzle that has become Olivia’s life and how it’s tied into the fae past and future.  For her, making a decision between Ricky or Gabriel it’s bigger than just who she loves.  And both of the fae factions they represent are fighting to make sure their side wins.

I really enjoyed the whole premise of the story arc even if I’m not a fan of triangles.  I have my favorite in sight but I’m not sure how this will all turn out in the end.

This was a book of answers.  As many riddles as we’ve faced in this series, a lot of things get uncovered here.  From the fae relation, to Olivia’s own past and her birth parents being killers (or are they?).

Never a dull moment when reading the Cainsville series, it keeps you on your toes for sure and captivated by the story.  Now that we got all these answers, I can’t help but think the next book will end the series with a resolution.  Can’t wait.

About Kelley Armstrong

Kelley Armstrong has been telling stories since before she could write. Her earliest written efforts were disastrous. If asked for a story about girls and dolls, hers would invariably feature undead girls and evil dolls, much to her teachers’ dismay. Today, she continues to spin tales of ghosts and demons and werewolves, while safely locked away in her basement writing dungeon. She lives in southwestern Ontario with her husband, kids and far too many pets.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
