Rough Justice (Cainsville #5.5) Reviews
I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
A great continuation of the Cainsville series. I liked seeing how Liv's decision from the previous novels is working regarding her continued relationships with Gabriel and Ricky. In Rough Justice, Liv has to confront her feelings regarding her first hunt as Mallt-y-Nos, Matilda of the Hunt. She delves into the concept of guilt as viewed by the Cŵn, specific as to whether Keith Johnson is truly guilty but also how and when the C ...more
In my review of Rituals I said that it was everything I had hoped for - that it had everything I love about the Cainsville series. Still, if there's one thing I was missing in Rituals, it was Olivia and Gabriel investigating a mystery together. So, I am incredibly happy and satisfied with this novella because it had that again - and what a mystery it was! It also added more info to how the Hunt works, and what Olivia's choice means for her life after Rituals. And of course, it had Olivia and Gab ...more
Love Armstrong's Cainsville series!! This takes Olivia on her first hunt and reveals the power her attendance emits. She possesses blood of two powerful fae groups and her challenge to embrace both. Loved reading about the characters and what has been happening since the last novel. Powerful author with skill at creating amazing characters and their worlds. "A copy of this book was provided by Subterranean Press via Netgalley with no requirements for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion ...more
Fans of Kelley Armstong’s recently ended but fabulous Cainsville series will accept any crumb from the Cainsville table. In Rough Justice we have a tasty, rich, heavily iced cupcake. A cupcake, not a cake because this is a novella.
Olivia is on her first Wild Hunt (Cŵn Annwn) serving as the Malit-y-Nos, Matilda of the Hunt. The Wild Hunt secures justice for the fae by having their hounds harvest souls of those humans who have killed fae but escaped justice in the human world.
However Olivia being ...more
A great follow up
This is a lovely follow up story to the Cainesville series. I loved “hearing” the voices of the main characters and watching them settle in to their lives post-series. Plus, the story is a good fae mystery. So happy to revisit this world!
Continuing stories that center on the same cast of characters, advancing their relationships yet complete in themselves, face a number of hurdles. Whether linked short stories, novellas in this case, or entire novels, they must furnish enough backstory and setting to orient the reader. The first episode is in many ways the easiest; everything is new, nothing taken for granted. Often the protagonist explores the world via the plot, taking the reader along. In subsequent stories, the task requires ...more

As per usual, Kelley Armstrong is fabulous.
I really liked Rough Justice, and it was so much fun to get back into Cainesville. My biggest hope is that Armstrong keeps giving us these novellas (and maybe another novel?!?!?!?) because I will buy and/or read anything that she puts out!
Like the blurb says, RJ picks up with Liv, Gabriel, and Ricky after the events of Rituals. By this point, the trio has been balancing ...more
Loved it!!!!! I read the ebook, and I must admit I miss having the illustrations included (I am not sure why they took them out of the ebook). This novella saw Liv on her first true hunt as Matilda. The plot was excellent but as always was too short (yah I know its a novella)! With the main series wrapped up, the novellas are a great way to keep the characters developing and I love the interaction between Gabriel and Liv.
