This Fallen Prey (Casey Duncan, #3) by Kelley Armstrong

This Fallen Prey (Casey Duncan, #3)

When Casey Duncan first arrived at Rockton, the off-the-grid, isolated community built as a haven for people running from their pasts, she had no idea what to expect. There are 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 become the town homicide detective. But, the very last thing she expected was for the council to drop a dangerous criminal into their m...

Reviews This Fallen Prey (Casey Duncan, #3)

  • Kaceey - Traveling Sister
    3*This is book 3 in the Casey Duncan series from Kelley Armstrong. While good by itself, I would still suggest starting at the beginning with City of the Lost to get the complete picture and absorb the most from this series.Rockton, a small community off the grid in Northern Canada. Where clients can go (for the right price) to disappear for a brief time. People come here for all sorts of reasons – some more innocent than others! When Oliver Br...

    This is the third book in the Casey Duncan series and I thought it was the best. It takes place in Rockton, the secret town for people who need to hide. Casey is the town's detective and her boyfriend Eric, is the town sheriff.The pace is quick from the start as the city council has negotiated for a dangerous and conniving criminal named Oliver Brady. They were offered $1 million to keep him safe and imprisoned for 6 months. Casey and Eric are ca...

    3 Stars.You remember Casey Duncan right? She’s the Detective who decided to live off the grid in Rockton, the town in the Canadian mountains where people go to hide from something and live new lives. Where there is no electricity, no internet and no cellphones. Sounds kind of perfect right? Except for Casey and her Sheriff boyfriend Eric Dalton, Rockton is far from perfect. Crime happens, even in the most perfect of places.This time, the counci...

    Reviewed by: Rabid ReadsLast year, when we discovered that amongst the residents of Rockton lived a serial rapist who would abduct a woman, fake her death (by dressing and strategically positioning the mauled and thus hard to identify corpse of another woman of roughly the same dimensions in the clothes the abductee was last seen in), hold her captive for months (more than a YEAR in one case), raping and torturing her until she died (for real thi...

    Rockton is a secluded town. There’s one sheriff, one deputy, one homicide detective, and one jail cell. A council decides who gets access to this unique town devoid of internet or electricity and there’s one person in Rockton who has direct access to the council. Communication to people outside of the town is extremely limited and the residents prefer it that way.So who are some of the residents? Some are criminals with fat bank accounts who ...
  • Maureen Carden
    Let me get this right out in front, Sheriff Eric Dalton and Detective Casey Duncan are two of my favorite romantic characters in almost fifty years of reading. Plus, Kelly Armstrong is known for some famously romantic characters in her several paranormal series. Unlike all of her other series, the Casey Duncan series is a hardcore police procedural, but set in a most unusual location. Armstrong is famous for her supernatural world building, but I...

    3.5 Once again we return to Rockton, that off the grid community where people are given a second chance. On the run from their parts this community is supposed to offer safety, but it sometimes doesn't seem that way. In this offering, Casey and Eric are not offered the choice, when a man is unceremoniously dropped in their midst. The council rules, and a great deal of money is on offer, an offer they have no intention of refusing. This man, and h...
  • Jilly
    I love the premise of this series - a town in the middle of nowhere that is for supposed victims to hide-out and live peacefully. Our heroine, Casey, entered this world a couple of books ago and works as a cop in this town. Unfortunately, she soon learned that not everyone there is a victim or witness, some of them are the perpetrators of crime and are hiding from the law. And, see, that seems like a flaw in this town's structure to me. Call me c...
  • Brenda
    The premise of a secluded rustic small village in the middle of a vast northern forest seems improbable. By rustic, I mean no internet, no computers, no wifi, no phones, no electricity, and small wood cabins with wood heat. Once you accept the premise, though, you’ll be able to accept everything that happens in Rockton.The council who established this village accepts a million dollar payment to keep a serial killer for six months. This with no ...
  • Veronica
    With the secluded, secret town of Rockton as a setting (population around 200), one might think that it would start to get difficult for the author to come up with new ideas to sustain this mystery/suspense series. But when the population is ever-changing (most residents can only stay two years) and the great Yukon forest is itself populated with Settlers and Hostiles AND the town is financially supported by a Council that carries out its own age...
  • Marialyce
    This is the third of the Rockton series by Kelly Armstrong. It again "stars" the characters of Detective Casey and Sheriff Eric Dalton and their ability to keep the residents of the off the grid town of Rockton safe.However, a plane lands in this desolate Yukon and a prisoner is taken off. He is no ordinary prisoner but one who is a serial killer and Casey and Eric are tasked to keep him contained in a town that has only one jail cell, no electri...

    WrensReads Review:This was a great addition to the series. So you know the big, rich people who make up all the rules and pull people on strings like a puppeteer? Well they decided that they are now going to make Rockton a place where they can hide wanted fugitives! Their first choice is someone who literally just kills for the fun of it and they want Rockton to keep him for like six months until his precious island is ready for him to live on! L...
  • ♥Rachel♥
    The Casey Duncan series is set in Rockton, a town off the grid, a refuge town for those trying to escape something in life like a stalker, abusive mate, or punishment from a crime. Supposedly residents are pre-screened for violent behavior, however Eric and Casey, Rockton’s Sheriff and Detective, are finding out that many of the residents are not as their paperwork has presented them. We’ve found out the hard way that there are very dangerous...
  • Mlpmom (Book Reviewer)
    I've loved this series from the very first book, from the rawness of it right down to the crazy residents that reside in Rockton and after reading book three, I can say without a doubt, that this series is just getting even more awesome as it goes.From a fast paced mystery to the slow burn of romance to the unusual setting and the even more unusual characters that make up Rockton, this series stand out and not only shines, but blinds.I loved this...
  • Nikki
    2.75 stars rounded up. This Fallen Prey is book #3 in Armstrong’s Rockton series. Once again, we find ourselves following Detective Casey Duncan and Sheriff Eric Dalton through the rugged wilderness in hot pursuit of a very dangerous criminal. Unfortunately, book three did not grab my attention or “wow” me. Armstrong’s overall concept is great, and I liked her original idea from the very beginning of the series. However, given that Rockto...
  • Carole (Carole's Random Life in Books)
    This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.This was such a good book! I really enjoyed the first two book in this series and was very eager to get started with this newest installment. I went into this book expecting really good things and I was not disappointed. This story was almost impossible to set aside and I ended up reading most of the book in a single day. This was a really thought provoking story filled with a whole l...

    4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum a slight dip, things in Rockton are back in full swing with this latest installment of the Casey Duncan mysteries. Summer has come to the Yukon and Casey is looking forward to taking advantage of the longer days, patrolling the woods around town with her boyfriend Sheriff Eric Dalton and training their boisterous Newfoundland puppy to help with police work. But then t...

  • Mackey
    This Fallen Prey is the third in the Casey Duncan series revolving around the remote town of Rockton. I highly encourage you to read the first two books in the series before beginning this one as it is not a stand alone novel, by any means. Kelley Armstrong is a masterful storyteller and with her background in psychology is able to weave together characters that are fully fleshed out including all of the good and bad, rights and wrongs and ambigu...
  • Hollis
    A shallow grave. Unmarked. As a homicide detective, I should be finding these, not creating them. But this is Rockton.All the twists! All the turns. Did I mention there are twists and turns?"You're not even going to ask why we're walking a bound and gagged man through the forest, are you?""Figured he pissed Eric off."Phew. This was a roller coaster of uncertainty and conflict and confusion and chaos. In the best fucking way. I'm so loving how thi...
  • Kirsten
    I always start these books thinking "is this the one where I finally get fed up with Casey?". Well, no, it isn't!I really have a love/hate relationship with the MC. She has personality traits I just can't stand. But, the again, if you're going to be a citizen of Rockton, it's probably a requirement you have interpersonal issues... in other words, you'll be a pain in the butt!This one is even more driving than the first two. The suspense gets ratc...

    “The word you want,” Dalton drawls, “is ‘untenable.’” (Page 67). That about sums up my feelings for this book thus far. I reserve judgment until I’ve finished it, of course, but it’s been a disappointment so far.Now that I've finished this book, I can clearly see why I picked it up this series in the first place. At first, I was intrigued by City of the Lost, even though it wasn't quite the story about the Cities of Refuge that I ...
  • Fiona
    I have a serious, serious love for this series. Combine the feeling of finding home at last with the frozen and absolute isolation that Casey Duncan finds in the north, and I never really stood a chance.The third book slips a little from that - I'd say the majority of the book wasn't spent in the town or with it's people at all, but instead on the hunt for someone who is - but might not be - but wait no probably is - unless he's innocent after al...
  • The Captain
    Ahoy there me mateys! Though this log’s focus is on sci-fi, fantasy, and young adult, this Captain does have broader reading tastes. So occasionally I will share some novels that I enjoyed that are off the charts (a non sci-fi, fantasy, or young adult novel), as it were. I received this thriller eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. If ye haven’t read the first book in this series, city of the lost, then ye might want to skip ...
  • Kaila
    I love this series. Kelley Armstrong is one of my favorite authors, and her Rockton series - a divergence from her usual urban fantasies - has been steadily impressing me more and more with each installment. There's something equal parts haunting and thrilling about the isolated and off-the-grid town of Rockton, a hidden refuge for criminals and victims alike, and it makes for one of the most unique settings I've ever encountered in a mystery n...
  • Chris Conley
    This is such a daring series. This installment lets light into many more corners of Rockton and some of its residents. Casey and Dalton are such strong characters. Each new installment is better than the last.

    *Source* NetGalley*Genre* Mystery, Thriller*Rating* 4.0*Thoughts*This Fallen Frey is the third installment in author Kelley Armstrong's Casey Duncan series. Welcome back to Rockton. A small village in the middle of the Yukon. It is a place that has no cell phone service, no Wi-Fi, and no electricity. It is a place where rich people pay serious cash to pretend to disappear for a short time. Most of these people have been granted sanctuary for a pr...
  • kartik narayanan
    This Fallen Prey is a poor follow-on to City of the Lost and A Darkness Absolute due to abundance of stupidity in the characters actions. I don't remember Casey Duncan being this done or the woods being this populated. The premise is good - what happens if a serial killer is incarcerated in Rockton. But this intriguing premise is ruined by dumb character actions. The book ultimately devolves into a slasher flick with people being killed all over ...
  • Meigan
    This Fallen Prey continues the exciting story of a remote, off the grid town filled with people looking to disappear, or those who are looking for redemption for past crimes. In this installment, the stakes are incredibly high as Rockton receives a new resident and one that could jeopardize not only the residents of the town, but the town itself - a possible serial killer. Rockton has had its fair share of residents who’ve committed heinous cri...
