“…this short novella delivered on the edge of intrigue I have come to love about this series while giving us some crumbs to mull over on the personal side.  Perfectly done and I can’t wait to read more.”
~ Under the Covers

I have been a fan of Kelley Armstrong for years and the Cainesville series is one that slowly pulled me into its mystery.  When I first started reading it I wasn’t quite sure where the paranormal angle was, but it’s slowly (quite slowly) been coming out.  I didn’t jump on reading book 4 when it came out because I’m holding out for the audiobook, and lucky that because this novella takes place between books 3 and 4.  So perfect timing for me to read it without having experienced book 4 yet.

LOST SOULS has us investigating another case that mixes what is believed to be a touch of paranormal and in this case an urban legend more so than an omen.  The case was interesting in and of itself, but the way the author pulled so many personal strings around this case to draw the reader in made it all the more appealing.  And all those strings in this case revolve around Gabriel.  He’s the focal point for me in this story.  His relationship with Olivia has suffered a bit after Deceptions and he can’t find it in himself to open up to her to fix it.  Patrick is also looking to connect with him.  The case gives the perfect backdrop to try and work through some of those issues.

Gabriel is quite complex as a character.  There are many walls he’s erected to protect himself.  Feelings are not something he’s used to or deals with well.  But I think I’m finally seeing an internal struggle that he can hopefully overcome before the series ends.

Overall, this short novella delivered on the edge of intrigue I have come to love about this series while giving us some crumbs to mull over on the personal side.  Perfectly done and I can’t wait to read more.

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.

  1. Loved your review, and you will adore book four. Kelley Armstrong definitely knows how to pull readers into her series and hook us before we know it. As for Gabriel, he’s a character that I fell for hook line and sinker, even though I quite often want to give him a shake and tell him to open up. say what you’re thinking or God forbid feeling, but as that’s just not who he is, I always want to give him a hug too.

  2. This series just sucked me in and before I knew it I had binge read all that was out and am now dying for yhe next book!
