This Fallen Prey: A Rockton Novel (Casey Duncan Novels Book 3) Kindle Edition
In This Fallen Prey, the next installment of New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong’s thriller series, Casey Duncan is about to face her toughest job as police detective in Rockton yet.
When Casey first arrived at the off-the-grid town, an isolated community built as a haven for people running from their pasts, she had no idea what to expect, with no cell phones, no internet, no mail, and no way of getting in or out without the town council’s approval. She certainly didn’t expect to be the homicide detective on two separate cases or to begin a romantic relationship with her boss. But the very last thing she expected was for the council to drop a dangerous criminal into their midst without a plan to keep him imprisoned, and to keep others safe.
Of course Oliver Brady claims he's being set up. But the longer Brady stays in town, the more things start to go wrong. When evidence comes to light that someone inside Rockton might be working as his accomplice, helping him to escape, Casey races to figure out who exactly Brady is and what crimes he’s truly responsible for committing.
In the next page-turning entry in Kelley Armstrong’s gripping series, life in Rockton is about to get even more dangerous.
"Kelley Armstrong's solid Casey Duncan series, set in Yukon, is turning into one of the best new finds of the decade. Armstrong has always been a particular talent, but Duncan and the Yukon are definitely her inspiration. This Fallen Prey is the best Rockton novel so far." —The Globe and Mail
"Armstrong continues to expand the highly original Rockton world." —Kirkus Reviews
"Armstrong delivers surprising twists and keeps readers guessing about who the next victim might be." —Publishers Weekly --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I'm excited to read the next book and see how this continues to develop. She's building up signs that Rockton is not going to be able to stay off the grid that much longer, so will be curious to what happens to these people in this town. How they will change and how it will all go down. I do believe the "first settlement" is definitely going to be a larger issue, how can it not be, to the safety and survival of the Rockton community.
Keep in mind that this is book 3 in a series that must be read in order. Absolutely nothing will make sense if you have not read books 1 and 2 to get to this point because seriously everything builds. And why wouldn't you want to read books 1 and 2 from Rockton? They are just as fantastic as This Fallen Prey was.
The suspense and the anxiety that I had to live through in this Fallen Prey were so intense! I was so wrapped up in the story and my beloved character's well-being that I could not put the book down. Each tense potentially life altering/shattering moment had me on the edge of my seat, biting my nails, with no idea how anything would play out. And yes, these are those kinds of books- where safety, HEA or even survival is not a guarantee for the main characters. Side not - the amount of danger and stress that Storm faced was terrible and I was so worried! Can we please not do this next book? And now I am completely doubting my dog training skills since the 8 month old fictional puppy is way better behaved than my 10 month old real puppy.
Everything is just so freaking realistic (be it the setting, the people, the human nature at it's worst) and detailed as if I was there witnessing it- this was not a book a read, but instead a story I experienced. There is no way I wouldn't have been sucked in.) The best part is how I never know how the mystery will end, who is the villain? Can one person be a villain when everyone is capable of murder? Gaw, the questions about human nature and the twists Kelley throws at the reader are hands down the best. I highly recommend this series and I am counting down the days until I can get the next book- actually any book by Kelley will do.
I honestly don’t know where to start...
This series is crazy, edge of your seat twisted crazy. There is never a clear cut answer to the ending, there is so much drama and dark rooted...crazy.
This series is unlike anything I’ve ever read. It is good but beyond that it’s so much more. It’s unique, it’s twisted, it’s dark, it’s complicated and I’m still scratching my head as I dive into book 4 because you can’t stop reading. Like a train wreck...you can’t turn away.
Because the sheer brilliance and uniqueness of this series. This author really has quite the imagination and man does she put you through the ringer.
Ms. Anderson set up the crimes in books 2 and 3 so that you couldn't be sure whether the suspects were guilty or innocent. Which would have been fine if she had let her characters talk about the ambiguity or let the readers figure it out on their own. But she decided to tell the reader about it at length via internal monologues. And she repeated the monologues every time a new piece of evidence was introduced. Very tedious. She's a better writer than that.

Some knowledge of previous books would be advisable before reading this book as it refers back to previous incidents. Once more we are taken on a ride of discovery of the Yukon. We meet more of the locals this time and get a look at some really evil serial killer types, both homegrown and imported. There is a lot of death in this book and we lose some characters that have been in the books from the start. There is a fairly major loose end when the book finishes so I am eagerly waiting for the next in the series.
I enjoy these books for the whodunnit and I always learn something new about backwoods life. This book is still a bit bloodthirsty and still has bad language so it is for adults only.
The series is easy reading, satisfying action, fairly complex situations between main characters and an interesting backdrop of an almost frontier town. If you like a well paced story with interesting characters and story line but without any cod morality or message the Rockton series is for you. Enjoy.
