“Armstrong has created a great mix of thriller, romance and survival that keeps you hooked to the very last page. ”
~ Under the Covers

Rockton is an isolated off-the grid town where those with the money can hide from the world; whether they are victims of crime or the perpetrator. The only law in Rockton is Casey Duncan, former homicide detective and her partner Eric Dalton the sheriff, who has lived in Rockton his entire life.

What Rockton has never been is a prison. Which is what the shadowy council behind Rockton want to do when they drop off Oliver Brady, a suspected serial killer, for them to hold for the next 6 months. And, although Brady professes his innocence everyone around him seems to start dying.

I love this series, Armstrong has created a great mix of thriller, romance and survival that keeps you hooked to the very last page. I had to read on, with each new nugget of information I swung from believing I knew what was going on to not having a clue. It was definitely the latter. This Fallen Prey ends with a fantastic twist that has my hands itching to get a hold of the next book.

But, it wasn’t just the drama surrounding Brady and his possible serial killer status that I enjoyed about This Fallen Prey. I really liked seeing glimpses into what life in Rockton, a small isolated town with no access to modern amenities, was like. I also liked seeing how Casey has fit into the town and with Eric, finding happiness in the last place she ever expected.

This Fallen Prey was a great thriller, with so many twists and turns that it leaves your head in spin. With every new answer you get it just leads to more questions, and not just about Brady, about Rockton itself and the shadowy cabal of people who run it. As well as this you get a great strong, smart female protagonist in Casey Duncan and an understated but powerful romance between her and Eric.

If you haven’t started this series yet, then you need to give it a try, it’s full of action, thrills and a dash of romance, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

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.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
