[Contest] Cainsville Giveaway by Kelley Armstrong

Ah, Kelley Armstrong. She’s one of the authors (and she’s Canadian!) that I truly love. Her new series, Cainsville heads into slightly darker horror territory than usual.The main character, Olivia, has a gift of seeing omens.

It took me awhile to get into this series, but with this second book I’m definitely hooked. I love the dynamic between Gabriel and Olivia and the Celtic and fae mythology woven into the story. Those looking for a bit of spice that Kelley is known for certainly won’t be disappointed. The story is gripping and I couldn’t put it down. Can’t wait until the next one!

Thanks to Random House, you can win both books in the series!
