Overview

In #1 New York Times bestseller Kelley Armstrong's latest thriller, the hidden town of Rockton is about to face a challenge none of them saw coming: a baby.

Every season in Rockton seems to bring a new challenge. At least that's what Detective Casey Duncan has felt since she decided to call this place home. Between all the secretive residents, the sometimes-hostile settlers outside, and the surrounding wilderness, there's always something to worry about.

While on a much needed camping vacation with her boyfriend, Sheriff Eric Dalton, Casey hears a baby crying in the woods. The sound leads them to a tragic scene: a woman buried under the snow, murdered, a baby still alive in her arms.

A town that doesn’t let anyone in under the age of eighteen, Rockton must take care of its youngest resident yet while solving another murder and finding out where the baby came from - and whether she's better off where she is.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong again delivers an engaging, tense thriller set in perhaps the most interesting town in all of contemporary crime fiction.

In this fifth book about the tiny town deep in the Yukon which houses those running from their pasts the investigation takes an unusual turn when Casey finds a dead woman cradling a tiny baby deep in the woods. In the search for the baby's mother Casey and Sheriff Eric Dalton discover more about the other settlers who have eschewed Rockton to live an even more basic life. Looking after a baby raises more questions for Casey and Eric and their relationship. Can Casey give the baby back to its parents, and what if the parents don't deserve to keep the baby? As always, the truth uncovered is twisty, turny and very dark. Loved it.

Great story and character growth. Plenty of twists and turns. Rockton is like a linoleum floor in an old kitchen, what's under the next layer and how bad is it going to be.

I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I believe I read the first book in this series and was not very impressed but I'm glad I tried again. This book draws you into the "wilderness" and really shows you how you must live to survive against the elements and the people and what do you do with an orphaned baby when there is no one under 18 in your "community" and no one knows who the baby belongs to? ! Enjoy this great read on a windy, snowy night to add to the ambience.

This is the fifth book in the intriguing Rockton series. I think this could act as a stand alone but the previous books are so good that I recommend reading them first. Lots of characters from the earlier books re-emerge so although it’s not necessary to have read them, I think this would be more enjoyable if you have. I have loved all the books in this series and this is no exception. Casey and Dalton are on a camping trip when she hears a baby crying in the forest and discovers a murdered woman lying in the snow clutching an infant. They take the body and the baby back to Rockton. She and Dalton go into full investigative mode to try to discover the identity of the woman and try to find out who the parents are and if the baby has been abandoned or kidnapped. They visit other settlements to talk with the people and learn a lot more about their neighboring communities. Rockton usually doesn’t allow anyone under 18 to live there but an exception is made until they can find the parents. This brings out a lot feelings for Casey and Dalton about having children and starting a family and each have their own hopes an misgivings. This is a very touching story and out of all the books shows Casey’s positive influence on Rockton and the surrounding settlements. Overall this is another great book by Kelley Armstrong. I’m considering re-reading all the previous books, they are that good. I’m looking forward to the next one, too. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for giving me an ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.

Oh, I have been eagerly awaiting the next entry in Kelley Armstrong's 'Rockton' series. The fifth book, Alone in the Wild, releases today - and it's a fabulous read! For those of you who haven't read this series yet (and you need to!), Rockton is a hidden, off the grid town up in the wilds of the Yukon. The residents? Yeah, they're all running from something or hiding from someone. Nobody asks too many questions. But even this town needs some laws - and someone to enforce them. That's where Detective Casey Duncan comes in - she was a homicide cop 'down south'. She and Sheriff Eric Dalton are partners at work - and at home. The first four books have let us get to know the lead characters, the residents, the dynamics and follow along as Casey and Eric work cases. In Alone in the Wild, the pair are on a rare weekend off, camping out in the woods when Casey finds a baby - alive, but in the arms of a dead woman..... What makes this series one of my absolute favourites? I am fascinated with the setting and Armstrong's world building. A town full of secrets offers up so many possibilities for storytelling. And the idea of a hidden town? Who's to say there isn't? Armstrong has slowly eked out the details of the town and what lies beyond it's fences over the course of the last four books. In this entry, most of the action and story takes place outside the town in the wilds of the Yukon. Rockton residents aren't the only ones in the area. There are those who have chosen to leave town and make their home elsewhere in the wilderness. There are the First Settlement residents who live a rougher but recognizable life. But, there are also Hostiles - people who have reverted to an almost animalistic state. And a few who live alone. I've been itching to find out more about these 'outsiders' and Alone in the Wild finally gives us some answers. But there are still questions and more to learn. I'm hooked! What else? The characters. Casey is a strong female lead - tough, intelligent and determined - but not perfect. Eric is just as well drawn. The two together make a great team. I'm not a big romance reader, but Armstrong does it well. Their relationship is believable, not 'over the top' and enhances the book, rather than being the main focus. The main core of residents are very eclectic (and dangerous) and I enjoy what they bring to the books as well. I must say, I very much like the new addition of Storm the dog - her chuffing and baleful looks speak volumes. And last, but certainly not least are the mysteries/cases in every book. They're unpredictable, intriguing and impossible to figure out ahead of the ending. Twists and turns along the way kept me guessing. And the action had me on the edge of my seat. Sorry, one more thing - the writing. Armstrong's work is just so, so...well, so readable! And addictive. I am immediately engrossed in the first few pages of her novels and get quite annoyed when someone interrupts me! This reader can't wait for the sixth book!

Alone in the Wild is the fifth book in Kelley Armstrong's thriller series Rockton. I didn't realize it was book five when I requested it; I hadn't read the others. But I jumped right in anyway. Was I lost and confused? Heck, yes. I needed to read the others first to really understand Rockton and the dynamics of its citizens. However, it was really such a gripping story that I didn't care if I was confused. It grabbed hold and held on to me until the end. Side note: When I finished the book, I found out I already owned the first three! No problem...I'll get book 4 and have me a Rockton Marathon! Detective Casey Duncan and her boyfriend Sheriff Eric Dalton reside in the remote Yukon town of Rockton, a mysterious place with quite the collection of, well, unusual residents. While camping with their dog Storm, a lovable and huge Newfoundland puppy, Casey discovers the body of a murdered woman under the snow; clutched in her arms is a tiny baby girl who amazingly is still alive. Casey and Eric go on the hunt to find the parents of the baby and to track down the killer of the woman who saved her. As I stated earlier, I would have been better served had I read the previous books. However, I was still drawn deeply into the mystery and it was almost impossible to put it down. Both Casey and Eric were fantastic characters. I loved their interactions and the deep love they have for each other. Both have horrid pasts they are still dealing with, and they are extremely supportive of one another. They were intensely drawn to the baby and had to deal with those emotions; I couldn't help but cry about that situation. It was the thrilling mystery, however, that kept me glued to the pages. I can't wait until I have the opportunity to see what I missed about these engaging characters and the strange town of Rockton. It's sure to be a thrill ride! I received an ARC of this book courtesy of the publisher and NetGalley. I received no compensation for my review, and all thoughts and opinions expressed are entirely my own.

There are three stars in the Rockton series, the impossible non-existing town of Rockton, the irascible (such a mild term) Sheriff Eric Dalton and his detective Casey Duncan, and the Yukon forest surrounding Rockton. All are always present in the series, but in Alone in the Wild the Yukon forest takes center stage Rockton is the very small, extremely off the grid little town somewhere in the Yukon. It is protected from detection by advanced technology and from the impossibility that it actually exists. It was started over sixty years ago to provide sanctuary from those wrong accused, convicted, or pursued by government gone crazy. It then morphed into a sanctuary for other victims. Recently the ruling outside council realized it could make some big bucks by accepting white collar criminals; and then a few serious crazies with very big bucks. Life in Rockton is fairly primitive, but somewhat sophisticated too. It’s also a place where people can reinvent themselves. The 90 pound weakling is now a hunky carpenter. The demure grade school teacher is now a foul-mouthed witch; and the respected psychologist has turned madam. But she still accepts an occasional patient. Then there is the Yukon boreal forest. Life in the forest is mad, bad and dangerous; also extremely gorgeous and rewarding if you pay attention. In Rockton there are certain immutable laws. Do not ever leave the confines of Rockton unless you are in a guided group. If you are in the forest always treat the settlers with respect and do not purposely trespass on their hunting grounds. Avoid any contact with the hostiles and good luck surviving if contact is made. They kill first, eat later. Okay that last was only a nasty, probably unfounded rumor. Eric and Casey's puppy Storm reigns supreme in Rockton, Imagine how a newborn baby electrifies Rockton; with most of its residents not having seen a baby in years. The baby also results in Eric and Casey confronting some difficult issues in their deepening relationship. All those rules I mentioned earlier, Eric, Casey and Will are the only ones who can usually safely break them as they forced to do in their search for the woman’s killer and the baby’s parents. Eric and Casey are forced deeper into the woods with more and more contact with settlers, hostiles, and the nomads who survive in the world between. Their contact with these inhabitants has been a fascinating study of the realpolitik of the world in a virtually unknown world. I have been fascinated by intricate, fascinating Rockton world building from the very first book, City of the Lost. Alone in the Wild has continued tradition, this time encompassing the forest, the settlers, and providing some unexpected answers concerning the hostiles. The problem with the forest taking center stage, there is not near enough time spent in Rockton or with the people who live there. As always in a Rockton book there is the fine writing, inventive story-lines, characters you want to invite into your life. There is also that lovely mysterious world, the impossible non-existing small town set in one of the most stunning hostile environments on earth. Most of all there is the compassion and tenderness underlying it all. This is what will stay with the reader the longest. Thank you to NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review.

In the 5th book of the Rockton series, Casey and Eric go on a weekend camping trip and wind up bringing home a surprise. Casey discovers a woman dead in the snow, clutching a baby. The baby is alive, barely. The woman had a head wound and had been fatally shot. Casey & Eric bring it back to Rockton and then go on the hunt for the baby's parent's.....and the woman's killer. I am a huge fan of Kelley Armstrong's books and especially this series. I love the main characters and the primative Rockton setting. The storyline kept me so engaged I didn't want to put it down. I highly recommend it.

There was a time in which I read Kelley Armstrong books like they were life sustaining. Lately, I've read them more for nostalgia. In the past I've been charmed and intrigued by this little town of refugees. Until this one. I forced myself through and just couldn't get invested in this latest entry. It furthers the story of some of the residents you may have grown to love as I have, but it seemed forced and awkward throughout my entire reading. It was a quick read. I'll give it that. I may soon see it as a stepping stone to the next story. It just wasn't for me.

Kelly Armstrong has written another great story about the town of Rockton. The setting is present day deep in the Alaskan wilderness. I've followed this series from the first book "City of the Lost" and each book is better than the previous one. There's murder and intrigue and enough surprises that kept me interested from the first page to the last. Each book can be read as a standalone but I recommend reading them in order for maximum enjoyment. I received an Advanced Reader's Copy from Minotaur Books.

Looking once again to create all the fun and intrigue of the past four books in this series, I was very happy to receive an advanced copy of this book. Once again, I was not disappointed as I followed the adventures of Casey and Dalton, as they root out evil from a faraway place called Rockton. It was to be another exciting ride into the wilds of the Yukon and one in which many of the strange but somehow alluring characters reappear. How could one hear a baby's cry in the woods of the inhospitable Yukon? As Casey and Dalton were away for a bit of a vacation from the frantic pace of Rockton and its many nefarious residents, Casey hears something. It couldn't be a baby, it must be an animal. However, upon tracking the sound Casey not only finds a baby, but also a dead woman covering the infant as a last attempt to keep it safe. The mystery begins as both Casey and Dalton wonder where this child came from, who are the parents, and how could anyone leave an infant to such a fate? As they search and delve into this event, more about the outer settlements from Rockton are revealed and we begin to understand the way of life in the frozen wild is indeed very different from the world we know. Once again, Kelley Armstrong has written an intriguing story that keeps the momentum going in this series. Her characters, many of which were definitely odious in their past lives, are seen in a light that, while not always complimentary, makes them people that we come to know and perhaps even like. She reveals more and more of her main characters's personalities, and the love story between Casey and Dalton adds a bit of spice to the tale. If you have read the other four books, you definitely need to set time aside for this one, as you will not be disappointed. It is a riveting gripping tale that grabs you from the onset to the very last page. If you are looking for a terrific captivating series then this series is definitely recommended.

“Alone in the Wild ” is the 5th installment in the Rockton series by Kelley Armstrong. Since I read the first in this series, I have gobbled up the subsequent books, and this one was no exception. This novel follows a simple plot, as our main characters, Sheriff Eric Dalton and his wife, Detective Casey Duncan follow the trail of a woman Casey finds dead in the woods, holding an infant, who’s still alive. Unlike the other books in this series, much of Alone in the Wild takes place outside of Rockton, and delves a little deeper into the relationships between the Rockton residents and the “outsiders”. For readers new to the series, there’s enough of the back story explained so the story can stand alone without having to read the other books, although I strongly recommend readers do so, as this series is really very, very good. I hope there are more stories to tell and more books to follow in this series, as the characters are extremely likable, the whole Rockton story is engrossing and different, and each book offers a different plot. This is a great series by an author I’ve come to love, and I can’t wait to enter Rockton again. I received an ARC of this book from the publisher through @NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Alone in the Wild is another fascinating page turner in the Rockton series. I believe that this could be read as a standalone, but I also believe that to do so would be a grave mistake by the reader. Each book in this series give another important layer of story about protagonist Casey and her partner Eric and their little neck of the Canadian woods, so this book would not be as enjoyable without reading the other books in order. Alone in the Wild sucked me in from the first page. It was action packed but the pacing is spot on for an engaging book, without it becoming a frantic list of events (as many books do). Armstrong's character building is a truly great strength in all of her books and I think these books may be the best example of what she can do. By now I feel like I know Casey and Eric pretty well, but we learn new things about them in each book. Also, the secondary characters never fail to surprise me with some small but interesting fact about their lives before Rockton. I also like how not all the characters are people you'd ever want to spend time with, but they are somehow a small but integral part of the town and the books. I LOVED learning more about the hostiles and what makes them, well, so dang hostile. The explanation make perfect sense and make them even more scary in a lot of ways, but you understand what has made them the way they are and why they act the way they do. The Rockton books take place in present day Canada, but Armstrong has built her own tiny universe inside the real world with these books. I know that Rockton isn't real place, but after reading these books I believe that it really could be. I highly recommend this series for anyone who enjoys mystery with suspense, romance and great world building. I received an ARC in exchange of my honest review.

Ahoy there me mateys!  I received an eArc of this thriller through NetGalley in exchange for me honest musings.  This be the fifth book of a series.  If ye haven’t read the other four, then ye might want to skip this post and go get caught up.  While I try to post no spoilers, if ye keep reading this log then ye have been forewarned and continue at yer own peril . . . I love Kelley Armstrong!  I discovered her through her young adult book, sea of shadows, and she became me most read author of 2016. I have really been enjoying this series and I didn't even read the blurb before I requested this. This novel continues the adventures of Rockton's detective, Casey Duncan.  For those who be adventurous and are readin' this post having not read the previous books, Rockton is an off-the-grid town in the Yukon.  People pay a council to spend time in this town to hide from their pasts.  Some flee domestic abuse.  Some flee other more unsavory problems.  Suffice to say, the town is not an idyllic wonderland. I loved that, unlike in the previous books, all the important action in this mystery takes place in the forest and the communities outside of Rockton.  Rockton has been weirdly well-behaved and is focused on the preparation for December's holidays.  Casey is supposed to be enjoying a mini vacation but that goes out the window when she hears a baby cry while out in the middle of the woods.  Aye, a baby.  But with that baby is a dead body that clearly shows signs of murder.  Casey be determined to find the babies relatives.  She just has to figure out who they are first. This case involves visiting the other settlements in the forest who don't like outsiders.  I really enjoyed getting insight into how the other Yukon groups choose to live.  Also some questions about hostiles are answered which of course lead to bigger questions for Casey to eventually solve.  Ye get more answers (and questions) about Dalton's past too.  I can't wait to see where those plot lines go in future books. The first three books were more self-contained.  Books four and five hint at a larger picture and have had interwoven threads.  The nice part is that each book's problems are solved even while the ramifications of Rockton's existence are getting more tricky.  I did miss not having much time with Rockton residents but got a ton of fun in exchange.  I read this book in one sitting and time flew by.  If ye haven't visited Rockton yet, ye should! So lastly . . . Thank ye kindly St. Martin's Press!

Every time I read one of Kelley Armstrong's books, I think....se can't get any better. But she always does. Alone in the Wild is the next story in the Rockton saga. Rockton is a very unique setting, no one is who they seem and nothing is what you see. The cast of characters, from Eric and Casey all the way to the settlers, fit their community. It feels real. This book starts off with Casey finding a baby where no baby should be...in fact, winter babies are not allowed to live and thrive. While the Rockton community searches for the baby's family, we readers get to see how protecting the young is a universal response from even the hardest of personalities. When Casey's heart cracks, so did mine. This book really deserves more than 5 stars. Kelley Armstrong's books defy genres. Pick a series, any of them, and start your membership in her fan club!

Rockton holds many secrets. Detective Casey Duncan and the Sheriff Eric Dalton make up the romantic couple that is brought to life by Armstrong. They also share being part of the law enforcement team. This is a series revolves around solving crime, secrets, and the survival in a Yukon community. The residents of Rockton along with the plot make this series shine. This story would be best enjoyed from the beginning so pick up the whole series to enjoy.

This is the first book I have read in the Casey Duncan series. It is not, however, the first book I have read by author Kelley Armstrong. With little information about what the book and series were about, I had some problems with the overall concept and with some of the dialog. I think if I had started with the first book and read through, this book would make complete sense. However, as I often dive mid-stream into series, I am used to trying to figure out things on the fly. I was able to but some of the story was not as well explained for a first time reader. Casey Duncan and her husband Eric Dalton (who has an incredible case of selective potty mouth) have gone off for a break in the woods. Casey comes across a dead woman who has a baby in her arms who is still alive. The story follows Casey and Eric as they search for the murderer as well as other family of the baby. Their search takes them to other areas of this strange town and surrounding area in the Yukon. This is where it gets a little difficult to follow. I let go of the need to understand everything I was reading and was able to enjoy the character of Casey (and others). I would heartily suggest that individuals who like suspenseful mysteries with a touch of slight outlandishness, start with the first book in the series. I’m pondering doing so myself as I really like Casey and the rest of the screw but Eric’s language is a little off-putting at times. I was provided a digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Netgalley.

Casey and Eric are taking a few days to themselves and even though it's winter a camping vacation seems the best getaway. When she wakes up one morning she realizes she has slept in and Eric has already started the day. When she comes out the fire has died down and Casey knows she needs to find some dry branches to get the fire going again. While searching for branches she heard a cry that she soon realizes is that of an infant. The two pack up and rush back to town, they need to get the baby out of the weather. They know that keeping the child safe is the most important thing along with figuring out who killed the woman carrying him. Can they find the child's family or is the baby better off staying with them? That is just one of the many questions they need to find the answer to. This was a great read that is a mix of the wild West and today's living.

Rockton is unknown to the general population, set up in the Yukon, off-the-grid, and a place formed for those on the run from danger. An abusive husband, a stalker, unfair conviction? Rockton is your place to hide until the dust settles. Supposedly inhabitants are vetted so that no violent criminals are allowed in, but in the past books we’ve learned that this isn’t true. Eric, the Sherriff of Rockton and Casey, the town’s Homicide Detective are a close team working together to keep order, their residents safe, and to solve whatever crimes. However, they’re more than that, and have been almost from the start, and part of the big draw to this series for me is their romance. There’s no drama stemming from unnecessary relationship conflict, rather the drama is from the danger they face daily from residents, the Hostiles, or from the outside Settlements. In Alone in the Wild Casey and Eric find a very young baby, clutched in the arms of a murdered woman. Was this baby taken from her family, and if so why? They need to find a killer as well, so they set off to find answers from the two Settlements, and Tyrone Cypher the former Sherriff of Rockton. I’ve been eagerly looking forward to Alone in the Wild and was pleased to finally get answers about the Hostiles, and a glimpse into the lives of the Settlers, people who chose to stay in the area rather than go back home after their five years at Rockton were up. Were introduced to a few new, interesting characters and a couple that sent shivers done my spine, anticipating the threats and danger they may pose in the future. I think this installment really set things up for future dealings with the Settlements and maybe some interventions with the Hostiles? Eric and Casey, as usual, make a phenomenal team, although there was a scene where I wanted to shake Casey for being reckless, but it was a minor annoyance. With being stuck with a baby, Casey and Eric faced some fears and made a plan for the future, whatever it may bring. I loved their approach! Rockton is one of my all-time favorite series’ and Alone in the Wild was another riveting installment fans won’t want to miss! If you haven’t tried this series yet, I highly recommend it! For audio book junkies (like myself) the audios of Rockton are amazing! The talented Therese Plummer narrates..

In the mysterious town of Rockton, things are never what they seem. But for once they have a break in the drama. Maybe just an overnight getaway, but that's enough for Det. Casey Duncan and her love, Sheriff Eric Dalton. Camping out in the Yukon is quite a bit different than camping at the KOA, while the ground is covered with snow, between wolves and hostile former settlers, it's still taking your life into your own hands.  Waking up to discover Eric gone, Casey thinks she hears a baby crying. But that isn't possible out there. Who would have a baby in the winter out here? With her overgrown pup, Storm by her side, Casey goes to investigate. What she finds is a mysterious woman lying dead in the snow. A head injury and a shotgun pellet but the biggest surprise is inside the woman's coat. A baby. A very tiny and new baby. Taking it back to town has everyone out of sorts. No one under 18 is allowed in Rockton. There are very good reasons for that. But while the police try and find out who the child belongs to, the baby will have to stay with some very sketchy residents. Finding answers requires going not only to the First Settlement but also the Second. Dealing with hostiles and people who long ago forgot their humanity. And even if they find the parents, will they turn the baby over to be killed? Kelley Armstrong writes about the most interesting town no one knows about. The cast of characters is both frightening and hilarious at the same time. This is a series. You could definitely read it as a stand-alone, however, I would suggest you just start with Book One! I am never so happy as when I see that a new Rockton book is coming out! I honestly read this in an entire Saturday and I will definitely read the next ones!

Alone in the Wild is the 5th book in the Casey Duncan series. Casey and Eric are on a camping vacation when she hears the cry’s of a baby. What she finds is a woman’s body buried in the snow, the baby still alive. Casey is determined to find the parents but did they abandon there child to die. Eric is having a hard time dealing with the circumstances of how he came to be in Rockton. Casey is coming to terms with things in her life as well. Eric and Casey’s relationship is so strong and solid. There love story is the backbone of this whole series. I love this series it’s so different. Rockton is such a unique place with a lot of complex characters. I really like Tyrone Cypher the ex sheriff he’s gruff and like everyone here there is something dark in there past.This installment takes us more on the outskirts than in. Everyone is being close mouthed about the parents.. Another great adventure.

I LOVE THIS SERIES! In this installment Casey finds a dead woman and a live baby and thus begins our story. Not only do Eric and Casey have to find the babies family and who killed the woman but Casey has to deal with her inability to bear children and how that might affect her relationship with Eric. This story takes us out of Rockton and we discover more about the settlements and the hostiles. This is a fantastic addition to the series.
