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.
Fans of the Cainsville series will rejoice at the return of our beloved heroine, Olivia. Kelley Armstrong ALWAYS delivers for her fans. She is the one author that I can honestly say, that I love her entire catalogue of work. Every single sentence she crafts is brilliant. Her characters are fantastical and still relative to our current world.
How lucky are we? To be readers in the same time that the great, Kelley Armstrong is alive. I’ve been privileged to meet her several times through the years and she is simply stunning, such a lovely human being.
There’s a mystery to investigate, and some space to see how the characters are growing and adapting to their new roles in the world and in each others’ lives. Rough Justice 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.
Can’t wait for more future appearances from the Cainsville crew!
