My Inner Worlds
Kelley Armstrong releases Rituals tomorrow, her fifth book in the Cainsville series. I have read all four previous books multiple times, fascinated by this alternate world living side-by-side present day Chicago. Currently I’m finishing a re-read of Betrayals, the fourth book, since it will get me back into the story for maximum enjoyment of the evolving tale of Olivia Taylor-Jones. I’m not a book blogger, so you can read more about the series storyline on Kelley’s website.
I enjoy books about strong women who do actual work in a realistic world. Authors who can detail a bit of the heroine’s work day grab my attention in a way that satisfies my CPA mind while feeding the fantasy- and magic-loving parts of me. I’ve read almost all of Kelley’s many books and enjoyed each one. Some are true fantasy, some are YA, and others are set in the Canadian Yukon with no magic at all. Her writing and character development are compelling and keep me buying her latest.
If you’re looking for a good series, I recommend picking up a copy of Omens and starting your journey into Cainsville. You won’t regret it.
