    1. Who's the lucky duck that got a early copy and binge read for four hours because she doesn't know how to pace herself?And who's extremely happy about the result?No, but seriously, this sequel is everything I could have wanted. Gabriel and Olivia are friends. They are actual friends that eat together and hang out after work and spend time in each other's company for personal enjoyment, despite Gabriel being a emotionally deficient teapot. Kind of like this dude:He's getting better though. But mor [...]

    2. Yes, we’re back to the sleepy, isolated small town named Cainsville, filled with weird and odd characters that are keeping a lot of hidden secrets from the outside world, where gargoyles appear and disappear at random and not a church in site!!!! Where ravens and crows appear at random times without any apparent reason!!! And where things are not what they seem to be!!This is the town where Olivia Taylor-Jones fled to after discovering the truth about her biological parents, who have a connect [...]

    3. ➸ book 1 : Omens ★★★★ (4.5 stars)"We are imprisoned by the truth we dare not see. We are imprisoned by the questions we dare not ask."► The story starts whenOmens ends, Olivia still trying to make sense of everything that happened to her - and to her serial-killers biological parents. WhileOmens was meant to be read as a thriller more than anything else, in Visions the mythology introduced there starts to be unraveled and more we learn about the different fights at stake, more I foun [...]

    4. Reviewed by: Rabid ReadsAs a long time Kelley Armstrong fan, I hate to say this but I didn’t like OMENS. I just couldn’t connect with the characters, it was more psychological thriller than urban fantasy, and readers were left with an exorbitant amount of unanswered questions. I honestly expected the worst when I started reading VISIONS, instead… I absolutely freaking LOVED IT! I instantly clicked with Olivia, Gabriel & Ricky, the plot was more closely tied to the main story arc & [...]

    5. "I warned you not to touch her," Gabriel said, his tone conversational."She is my fiancée," James spat."EX-fiancée, a concept you appear to have difficulty comprehending, which is at the root of this problem. However, if you are suggesting that even as her fiancé you would have the right to touch her, you are mistaken on a very important point of law. You do not. You will not. Is that clear?"Okay Well, this series has certainly progressed. This is the sequel to Omens, which I reviewed a few d [...]

    6. It is always ever-so-slightly disconcerting to pick up a sequel and read a novel far altered from your expectations. I adored Armstrong's Omens when it released last year, both because of its unique paranormal plot line and its psychologically consuming characters. While neither of these traits have diminished in strength throughout this sequel, they have altered in some capacity. Granted, some are for the better--certainly--but some, sadly, for the worse. In Omens Olivia, the protagonist of our [...]

    7. SpoilersLoved it, best urban fantasy I've read in a while. It pretty much had everything I wanted — lots of mystery, an engrossing plot, a decent heroine, and some magic, myths and folklore. -One of the best elements was the various mysteries throughout, there were so many: Gabriel/Olivia's powers/history and connection to Cainsville, Olivia's real parents, what Ida, Walter and co wanted, Cainsville in general, all the different players (the hunt/Tristan and his people/the elders) and the endg [...]

    8. The Cainsville series has become a favorite of mine after I read a short novella and the first book in the series. I finished this book a while back, and I have book 3 and 4 waiting to be read. This is a great series, perfect if you like urban fantasy. Now, this is a series that probably is best read in order. I've read two novellas that contained spoilers, but I'm used to reading books out of order.Visions story continues after the story in Omens. Olivia may have made some success in her parent [...]

    9. I think I'll stick with four stars for the book, but five stars for Gabriel!I liked this SO MUCH. I wish there were already a billion books out in this series so I could just keep reading them. I like the characters. I like the town. I even, mostly, like how slowly the answers are being doled out. I feel like I have an okay picture of a lot of what's happening, but there's sooo much that's unclear. And I like that. (Note: So far, each book has had a clear plot that IS resolved at the end of each [...]

    10. 4.5 ~ This book was far better than the first. I liked Olivia a lot more. I really love Ricky but see the pull of Gabriel whom I adore. But I've always been attracted to broken men. Thus when it comes time to choose, I'm not sure who I'll be rooting for.While this isn't a perfect book, it starts off with Olivia admitted to seeing omens when she hadn't quite admitted that in the first book. Thus it felt like the author thought that in her head and due to the passage of time simply forgot that she [...]

    11. Not as good as the first one. Full review to come.Okay, here's the thing: I'll probably read anything that the author writes.Kelley Armstrong definitely knows how to tell a tale, and the mystery behind this series is addictive as hell.~FYI, I had forgotten what it felt to want to binge read a series this much. Cainsville brought that feeling back.*Then I freaking love the charactersOkay, I may have a soft spot for Gabriel, due to the shorts stories that I read in Led Astray: The Best of Kelley A [...]

    12. I debated even writing a review for Visions because what do you even say when your favourite author writes one of the best books she's written in years? Something along the lines of "AKFJSDKJGLADFHGJTSFHJ!" And for some reason that doesn't seem like a particularly constructive review, nor is it a compelling argument to READ THIS SERIES. But thankfully I was able to form coherent thoughts about the UF perfection that is Visions and here we are!In Omens Liv moves to Cainsville, a quaint little tow [...]

    13. Dear Kelley Armstrong,Fuck off.How can you do this to me? I love you. I love you so hard.This book was amazing. Intriguing, weird, so exciting, and full of so much sexual tension, I might just fucking die. Seriously, I might die from it.You're the worst.I love you.And Gabriel. Fuck, he's the best. Like, just (view spoiler)[make the fuck out already. GOD. (hide spoiler)]Love always,Natasha

    14. 4.5 starsI enjoyed this one even more than its prequel. More paranormal elements, a little more romance, fantastic character development. I love how Kelley Armstrong provides us with a separate mystery case in each book while continuously revealing more and more about the background story line and further getting the main characters tangled up in the mess. A very clever way to keep the reader interested. I'm seriously loving this series. On to book 3!

    15. I loved it!I actually just finished reading and decided to just do a quick review. I am happy at the same time frustrated cause I just want the story to continue. Just like the first book, there’s so much mystery surrounding this series and while it’s slowly unravelling, a lot of them is still hidden and what’s worst, I could not second guess any of it. It is that frustratingly good! ;)The story picks up where it left off, with Olivia deciding to move to Cainsville… But of course nothing [...]

    16. It didn't take me long to pick this up after finishing Omens. I was completely hooked, intrigued, and on the edge of my seat not only with the mystery that is Cainsville, but with all the characters as well. This truly is a stand out series that ended up being so much more addictive than I had planned for.And while so much was finally answered and revealed in this installment, so much more was questioned and brought to light as well and even though I am still on the edge of my seat and can't sto [...]

    17. I'm enjoying this series a lot. Nice creepy vibe. I'm not normally one to read mysteries, but the paranormal parts keep me intrigued. I do wish the author would throw the reader a bone or too, but it's still a good read. You just won't get any free clues.Check out more of my reviews here

    18. I regret having paid money to read this book, it was really annoying and when the dreaded love triangle reared its head I just quit. I can't stand it anymore.P.S. This also means that I won't read any other of Armstrong books.

    19. Omen's the first in this series/trilogy was a particularly brilliant work -- a great balance between supernatural and natural intrigue, an absorbing main character and an interesting quirk where readers were suggested to look up the 'fairy-language' to find out more about the magic (but it was still totally fun if you didn't)I had a bad feeling about the second installment. I don't know if it was it came out so quickly after the first, or that another Armstrong series 'Sea of Legends' started of [...]

    20. Nachdem ich bereits "Dunkles Omen", Band 1 der "Cainsville"-Reihe, von Kelley Armstrong gelesen habe und dieser mir sehr gefallen hat, habe ich schon sehnlichst den zweiten Band "Zeit der Schatten" erwartet, der sich wieder einmal mit dem mysteriösen Ort Cainsville auseinandersetzt. Meine Erwartungen waren dementsprechend hoch und ich wurde zum Glück nicht enttäuscht, denn auch der zweite Band konnte mich wieder einmal überzeugen.Der Schreibstil ist wieder einmal sehr gelungen: Spannend, pac [...]

    21. First of all, I would like to say Mrs. Armstrong, you did nothing wrong. It’s not your fault I had wrong visions about this book. It’s all me. But I’ll return to that later.Visions starts with Olivia visiting her family home, seeing poppies - which are death omens, and *this is not a big spoiler, it’s on the second page* finding a dead woman with gouged eyes who looks very like her in her car. Fast forward few minutes and the body is missing. Even spookier things start to happen and inve [...]

    22. A mini-review:I'm glad we got to learn more about Cainsville, the small town with cozy, eerie charm. What we didn't learn more about was Olivia's parents, which was frustrating. :(Ricky and Olivia's super-sexy relationship came as a surprise to me, although now that I think about it, it probably shouldn't have been. Ricky isn't as interesting a character as Gabriel, however. Just pointing that out. I like the elders and Patrick. They're fascinating. I want ALL their back story.

    23. The Good: I absolutely love the dynamic between Olivia and Gabriel. Their friendship is a hard won thing on it's own, not to mention Gabriel's obvious avoidance of any type of intimacy clearly at odds with his growing attraction to Olivia. The fae aspect of the series comes in loud and clear in this installment. While still mystery at heart, the supernatural overtones are bigger, brighter and proving to be a huge part of the overall story line - a part that wasn't quite clear in the first book, [...]

    24. I loved Omens, and I was super amped for this one. Sadly, this one did not live up to my expectations. It isn't entirely bad. It just didn't do a whole lot in answering my questions. Hopefully, it's just the case of sophomore slump and book 3 will make it up to me. ( Fingers crossed)

    25. 3.75 starsWhere to begin with this? I enjoyed this but it had its shortcomings as well.For the most part, I like the Cainsville series so far, but it frustrated me along the way. This book felt very much like a "Part II" to an epic first book in a series (Omens being "Part I"). Together they felt like a complete beginning to the series, but not really their own books. Although it may not make sense to say, a lot happened at the same time that not much happened at all. The style of this series th [...]

    26. After reading Sea of Shadows, which, I'll be 100% honest, I didn't enjoy very much, I was looking forward to reading a book I was SO SURE I would love. The fact that I got to meet her at the Forbidden Planet book signing had me literally drowning in excitement.So why the 3 stars? HmmmThe story of Olivia Taylor-Jones picks up exactly where it left off in Omens. Like literally where it left off, with Olivia on her way back to her parents' house to pick up her belongings. Typical of Kelley Armstron [...]

    27. Mon avis en FrançaisMy English review I was very surprised by the first novel and I had a wonderful time with it and with the release of the third book, I was eager to read on to discover the continuity of Olivia’s adventures.After proving the innocence of her parents for two of the murders, our heroine begins to work while trying to handle any problems that occur during her life and for that, there are many of them. Firstly, we find James and his rather unhealthy desire to recover Olivia, pu [...]

    28. THIS. WAS. EPIC. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPIIIIIIIIIIIICCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC. I'm so excited I could squeal. And spin in circles around my room. And cry a little. And try to think of a way to make Armstrong release the book NOT IN AUGUST, but tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. And let's pretend I'm not actually doing that right now. Cause I'm not.I really need book 3. I'm not kidding. Someone is going to get hurt if I don't get my hands on it. It's probably going to b [...]

    29. Once again I'm too tired to really even attempt a proper review.Anyway, to keep it short: there are things I loved about this book, and things I didn't care for all that much. Overall, I think Omens was a stronger book - but on the other hand, when Omens was really all hints and suggestions and questions, Visions has started to give us answers, so that was something I really appreciated.I also really like Olivia, and I love her relationship with Gabriel. On the other hand, I could have made do w [...]
