Kelley Armstrong's Rituals sums up the Cainsville series. I'm including a photo to show the difference between the huge floppy manuscript I received and a normal book. I had to lug the big sucker around for a couple of days because I read inside and outside. Awkward, but worth it because I was able to finish this five book series!
The blue tint given to the final cover is better, I think, than the cover on my copy. Like everyone else, I am glad to have a conclusion to this series and know for sure the final romantic pairing. Readers will find a lot of answers to questions that have hovered over the books, and yet one story-line is not completely resolved--leaving a door open for the Cainsville characters to reappear at some point in the future.
Although it isn't my favorite Armstrong series (I have a thing about the Fae; I can get along with vampires, zombies, shape-shifters, and other supernaturals, but not the Fae--weird, huh?), I was glad to have several story-lines resolved.
A prolific writer, Armstrong will probably have another book out before long, and I'm looking forward to another Casey Duncan novel set in the spooky little town of Rockton in the Northern wilderness. I also love her YA novels--especially the Darkest Powers and Darkness Rising trilogies.
