Fresh Fiction Review

I was surprised and delighted to see ROUGH JUSTICE, a new novella in the Cainsville series, which I thought had ended with Rituals. Getting a new, although short, story about Olivia Taylor-Jones and Gabriel is a dream come true because I have truly enjoyed all of the books in this series.

Olivia, in her role as Mallt-y-Nos aka Matilda of the Hunt, is leading her first hunt for a killer that has escaped justice, but will now have to face the justice of the Hunt. However, Olivia feels that something is wrong. Could this man be innocent? The hunt is halted by Olivia's questions and she turns to Gabriel to find out the truth.

I was thrilled to once again read about Olivia and Gabriel, especially now that they are truly together. It has taken them a long time to finally be together, and Gabriel's trust issues are still things they have to work through. On top of ironing out their relationship, they have to work together to figure out if the man chosen for the Hunt is guilty or not. And as usual, nothing is cut and dry.

Reading ROUGH JUSTICE without having read anything previous in the series may be hard. However, I started this series by reading LOST SOULS, a short novella in the middle of the series. Doing so made me eager to read the rest of the Cainsville books, so readers who start with this book may spark the same interest! Kelley Armstrong is a fabulous author, her Cainsville series is marvelous, and I warmly recommend ROUGH JUSTICE.

SUMMARY

Mallt-y-Nos. Matilda of the Hunt. The lone woman who rides with the Wild Hunt, tasked with finding killers who've escaped justice and letting the hounds reap their souls. For Olivia Taylor-Jones, Matilda isn't just a legendary figure from Welsh lore. She is Olivia's past, and her future, one she's finally embraced.

Having accepted her role as Matilda, Olivia must now lead her first Hunt. Seems simple enough. But when she questions their target's guilt, the Hunt is halted, her mission failed. Still, it's just a matter of getting Gabriel's help and investigating the man's past to reassure herself that he's guilty. He must be. Otherwise, he wouldn't be a target. But the deeper she digs, the more problems she finds, until she must question everything she knows about the Hunt and the choice she's made.
