A couple of months ago, I was debating picking up Kelley Armstrong‘s newest offering, Omens. I thought it sounded interesting, but I wasn’t sure if the paranormal elements would be strong enough to keep me interested. Well, I broke down and bought it, and I am so glad I did.
The first book of the Cainesville series definitely hooked me. The story was well done, the characters so far have been great – not too perfect, but not too flawed, either. The hint of the supernatural was a nice break from my usual reading habits of weres and vamps, and there was just enough foreshadowing of a romance to keep me involved. My only disappointment was that the Canadian cover was different than the US one, and I didn’t like it as much.
I was very pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed Omens, but what did you think? Was there enough paranormal and romance in it for you, or was it too much straight mystery? This was my first book by this author, and I am now eying her young adult series hoping I would enjoy them as much. How do her YA stories stack up?
