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....

Rough Justice (Cainsville #5.5) Reviews
I received an ARC of this book through NetGalley.
It's lovely to get another, novella-length story about the Cainsville crew, after the official completion of their series arc in Rituals. In this story, Olivia participates in her first Wild Hunt, which doesn't go exactly as planned. 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.
A short story, 5.5 in the Cainsville urban fantasy series based in and around Chicago and revolving around Olivia and her first Wild Hunt.
How lovely to have another Cainsville novel to read! Especially one that shows us what Olivia, Gabriel, and Rick are doing now, six months after Olivia and Gabriel moved in together.
"'Our cloaking devices,' Ricky said, shaking his out. 'Appropriately in the form of an actual cloak.'"It's a mix of first person protagonist point-of-view from Olivia's pers ...more
Rough Justice is a novella revolving around Olivia’s first Hunt as Matilda for the Cwn Annwn. The Hunt provides justice to those who have killed descendents of the fair folk and the Matilda leads that hunt as witness when justice is served. Olivia’s day job is as an investigator for her boyfriend lawyer Gabriel, so admittedly it’s hard for her to accept their prey’s guilt without proof, and because of that he goes free. Olivia investigates the murder and finds that the solution is not as clear c ...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.
Trust in Ms. Armstrong to bring a faery tale into modern times. The way she can blend the supernatural into white colour jobs is impressive. In this story, the fae, specifically the Hunt have come into the corporate world. Their "day" job perfectly fits their dark persona. I am not sure if this story is an off shoot of another one because it did feel like I was missing some back stories. I was still easily able to get caught up to speed. Ms. Armstrong provides a bit of reference points in each i ...more
I received a copy of Rough Justice from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
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
First off, Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC! I love reading Gabriel and Liv. We join the crew for Liv first Wild Hunt and of course she has questions over the guilt of the accused. I have missed these characters! I don't want to give anything away but the questions get answered and there are a few twists too. Can I say I really dislike Gabriel's mother? I hope there will be more Cainsville stories to come!
This is a novella that takes place after the fifth and final Cainsville novel. I loved this continuation of the Cainsville series. It was wonderful to be able to go back and re-visit all these characters that I know and love. It was a great story and I liked seeing how everyone had adjusted to their new positions in the Hunt.
We get to see how Olivia, Gabriel, and Ricky are making their interesting situation work to their advantage. We also see how Liv struggles with the Hunt and letting the Hunt ...more
