KIRKUS:
The idealistic attempt to carve a new town out of the Yukon snow runs into criminal complications that threaten to reduce the tiny population to zero.

Det. Casey Butler has every reason to be deeply invested in Haven’s Rock. She and her husband, Rockton Sheriff Eric Dalton, have financed the new settlement, breaking away from the marginally more established refuge of Rockton, with money Casey inherited. Her eventful history with Rockton makes her eager for the new town, whose every resident will be hand-picked by Dalton and her, to succeed. So she’s alarmed to learn that three of those residents ignored the place’s paramount rule—don’t go into the forest—and only one of them returned. Yolanda the contractor, last spotted walking into the woods with Bruno the engineer, is back safe and sound, but finding Bruno will become the top priority of Casey and Dalton and their canine and human cohort. Soon after he’s rescued, Bruno goes AWOL from his hospital bed without more than hinting at what happened in the forest, and this time he turns up dead. Even worse, Penny, the architect who followed Yolanda and Bruno when she first saw them walking away from the town in progress, remains missing, presumed dead—until Casey and Dalton find a dead woman who turns out to be Denise, the second wife of Mark, a prospective resident who’s on a secret mission of his own. Few readers will be able to name any of the suspects an hour after putting this spinoff down, but they’ll still be shivering with cold.

Armstrong’s new twist on her Rockton franchise scores higher as wilderness adventure than as mystery.

Welcome to Rockton's spinoff, another adventure for Casey and Dalton. Kelley Armstrong does it again with this crime fiction. I reread the entire Rockton series just to get to this one again and of course it was so much fun to read. A new murder to solve and new character's brought in what is not to love. Kelley even dialed back Dalton's constant dropping of the F bombs' although to be honest I didn't mind it as much, sure at times it got cringe and unnecessary but it became part of Dalton's charm. Either way I like it.
I am not so sure about the new character Yolanda, I was a bit on the fence about her. Her demeaner just seemed to be too much for me, either she was secretive or she was bossy or she was mean, like pick one, lol. I think she will grow on me it's only her first intro into the story so not too upset about it.
highly recommend for crime fiction fans as always. :)

This was cute, answered most unanswered questions from the Darkest Powers Trilogy and the rising powers Trilogy.

I read this book years ago with my oldest daughter, it's one of the series that got me back into reading and down my reading rabbit hole. I love the supernatural aspect, the whole family secrets build to Chloe, Simon, Derek and Tori's adventures getting to the bottom of the Edison group.
I have this whole series and continued with the Darkness Rising.

I love the building friendship they develop with their growing to know each of their powers. A lot of young adult books make the teenagers seem too grown for their age to try to fit it into a criteria I suppose of making sense in an adult world but Kelley Armstrong doesn't do that. They are teenagers taking on this huge world and still remain true to their age group.

I wouldn't recommend the audiobook to this however, I tried to listen to it because I was in the mood to get into the story again but the narrator they chose sounded like a 5 year old and made for the story to be unbearable. If you are into supernatural, magic, and a world of mystery and a secret society that unfolds through every book, this is the series for you.

It's a series I have read quite a few times and continue to do so. Love it :)
