The Demon Trappers: Forgiven by Jana Oliver

**SPOILERS FOR FORSAKEN and FORBIDDEN, THE PREVIOUS BOOKS IN THE SERIES (which you should definitely read first!)**

I’ve discussed how difficult I find it to give reviews of awesome books, but I honestly can’t do it! On the other hand, I do then I feel bad giving 4.5/5 stars to a novel with a tiny review that doesn’t really explain why I loved the book; so without further ado, I will list all the parts that I loved about this book (and yes, the vagueness is deliberate to prevent spoilers because you honestly should go out and read this book and I would hate to mar your enjoyment of this epic saga)

So the things I loved about this particular instalment:
  • The additional answers we get – I hate novels that think they can get away without answering major questions!
  • How caring Beck is towards Riley – this is how all men should act! (aside from the moodiness that is)
  • And on a similar note, how much I’ve grown to love the characters, especially Riley, from hardly caring about them due to the superb character development
  • The fun and witty writing
  • The shocks!
  • And, most epic of all in this book was the fight – much better than I was expecting and I love how creative Oliver is with her demons and such, though it was over a bit too quickly for my liking

The only bad thing I can think of is the ending, which is one of those painfully-contrived-for-a-cliffhanger-to-make-you-read-the-next-book but that is only a minor complaint.

This is one of those series that you have to give a try – it’s seriously underrated. I cannot wait for the last in the series Foretold!

[SYNOPSIS: The days are growing darker for 17-year-old demon trapper Riley Blackthorne. With her father’s reanimated body back safely, Beck barely speaking to her because of a certain hunky Fallen angel, and a freshly-made deal with Lucifer, she has enough on her hands to last a normal teenage lifetime. Though she bargained with Heaven to save his life, her ex-boyfriend Simon has told the Vatican’s Demon Hunters that she’s working with Hell. So now she’s in hiding, at the top of everyone’s most-wanted list.

But it’s becoming clear that this is bigger than Riley, and rapidly getting out of control: something sinister is happening in Atlanta… or some
one. The demons are working together for the first time ever and refusing to die, putting civilians in harm’s way. Riley thinks she might know who’s behind it all, but who’s going to believe her? Caught between her bargain with Heaven and her promise to Lucifer, Riley fears the final war is coming – and it may be closer than anyone thinks…]
