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 love that Kelley Armstrong writes novellas for her finished ("finished"?) series and of course I was glad to see more Olivia/Gabriel, however a couple of things about how the Hunt determines guilt bothered me. If you kill someone in battle, you're not guilty because that person signed up for battle. But if you kill someone in a drug fueled rage, you're guilty because you made the choice to take drugs. But addiction exists. It is not always quite a choice. And if you kill someone due to a menta ...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.
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!
Ahoy there me mateys! I received this urban fantasy eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. So here be me honest musings . . .
The cover drew me in and three things convinced me to read this book:

2. It is a Subterranean Press book and they do great work; and
3. This story is set in the Cainsville series.
I am not really an urban fantasy fan so I have be ...more
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
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
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
I was surprised and delighted to see ROUGH JUSTICE, a new novella in the Cainsville series, which I thought had ended with Rituals. Getting a new, although short, story about Olivia Taylor-Jones and Gabriel is a dream come true because I have truly enjoyed all of the books in this series.
