Review quote

Praise for the Demon Trappers: "Devilishly clever and totally unique." - PC Cast, "New York Times" bestselling author of the House of Night series, on "The Demon Trapper's Daughter""Riley Blackthorne is all heart and no nonsense! She will no doubt join the ranks of the toughest, smartest urban fantasy heroines of all ages." - Jeri Smith-Ready, award-winning author of "Shade" and "Shift, ""on The Demon Trapper's Daughter""The eternal war between good and evil finds a new battlefront in this successful urban fantasy, as Oliver spins the action-packed story of a young woman following in her father's footsteps... With a strong female heroine, a fascinating setting, and a complex, thrill-soaked story, this series is off to a strong start." - "Publishers Weekly" on "The Demon Trapper's Daughter""Oliver's series start will suck you in from the first page, keeping you awake at night wondering what will happen next...thrilling, filled with action and a side of romance." - "RT Reviews" (4 stars) "on The Demon Trapper's Daughter""Oliver offers plenty to appreciate in this inventive twist on the story of a girl breaking into a man's career field, including a nifty demon-classification system; a freaky zombie-creation business; a romantic undercurrent between Riley and her father's ex-partner, Beck... and a subplot with an earnest young suitor. Readers will delight in the novelty and eagerly await the next book in this proposed series." - "Booklist" on "The Demon Trapper's Daughter" "This was a really entertaining Young Adult Urban Fantasy novel with interesting characters and the kind of writing that has you wanting to read the entire book through in one setting. A great beginning to a series, and as the series continues, I'm sure the books will just get better. I recommend this to the Young Adult and Adult crowd as well." - "Affaire de Coeur" (4 stars) on "The Demon Trapper's Daughter""The rock 'em-sock 'em, cliffhanger ending.... A strong female prot

Our customer reviews

I recieved a paperback copy from the publisher for review. When you talk about your favourite book you could talk for countless hours about it. But when I talk about The Demon Trappers people look at me worriedly! (in a good way of course) because you could say I'm a little bit attached (obsessed) with The Demon Trappers Series. It is perfectly normal to date a fictional character don't worry Beck agrees with me (as he has no choice and ISN'T REAL) and as much I love Riley she just . . . isn't going there with my Backwoods boy! Got it? :) (Keep me happy eh?) The start of my review is sounding like a crazed obsessed girl overly attached to a book and that's not me (so me) honestly I am not attached even ask my sister cause I woke her up in the early hours of the morning and accidentally flung the book in the air getting excited about it and she told me to tell her near the whole story (I didn't shut up and forced her to listen) and she said my eyes were practically glowing. (Good thing right?) She doesn't know I woke her up as I told her she was dreaming but you'll keep that a secret right?? My sister was so interested in them I was like YAY! I recruited a member to read The Demon Trappers although when she asked if she could read my copy of Forsaken . . . well . . . in return she got a look that said "touch my Demon Trapper books and your life depends on it" type of look. (see told you I'm not obsessed) Jana Oliver is an amazing talented author who writes extraordinary stories capturing the minds of her readers making them beg for more.! I have been waiting months till Forgiven was released and am so thrilled to have read it. It was amazing, simply magnificent. The way the author starts and stops her novels at exactly the same point makes the story more enjoyable for me to read as I know I'm not missing out on anything. Forgiven starts at an amazing point and I think it has been the best yet in the series it was so much more adaptable and I felt there was more of an emotional pull in Forgiven. I don't want to give away any spoilers but you will not be disappointed! I waited till the third book in the series to get what I wanted something which Jana knows I'm a little teeny tiny bit over excited about but the wait was well worth it! The scene was magically perfect. . . aww . . . :) In forgiven Riley has changed quite abit I think! She's matured and has had to cope with many difficult choices but we see a grown up side to her which knows she is taking responsibility for her actions. Riley is an amazing character by far the best female character I have ever read about, she's awesome! :) Beck . . . Beck . . . Beck . . . MY BECK!! :) Okey Dokey? M Y B E C K!!!! Now that's cleared up. :) Beck is even more perfect in Forgiven, he's still hot, and flirty, just amazingly mine. :) I'll agree Jana can't write me in The Demon Trappers to be with Beck :( so I'll allow if it happens for Riley to be with him . . . I won't have a problem! Honest! Back to Beck, In Forgiven we even see a more mature side to him he's more open about himself and his feelings and we see him letting Riley in more which was so enjoying to read! STEWART!!! :) YAY! There was more of him which was awesome I love him! He's such a good character, makes me smile when reading about him and he's so good with Riley. Peter, Mort, and Ayden are more characters which I enjoy reading about as they bring a whole feeling to the series. Jana Oliver truly deserves an award! She has wrote the best series in the world! Yes I said it and I mean it! Best series in the WORLD!!! Someone please give this author an award for her writing she is super amazing!!!! The forth book in the series will be released in August . . . August . . . I'll so be able to cope right??? :O NO BECK till August!! Sorry if this review is a little jumbled but . . . it's a demon trapper thing you'd have to read them to understand!! :D Reviewed by Kerry-Ann McDade on her book blog Reading A Little Bit Of Everything here: more

The third instalment of The Demon Trappers series is my favourite of the awesome series so far. Riley Blackthorne has done a whole lot of growing up over the course of the series and, if you've been following my reviews over the last few days, you'll know that I felt she needed to grow up in order for things between her and Beck, her father's young trapping partner, to flourish. It was great to see things developing between Beck and Riley, but things are still bumpy. The conclusion of the book had me nigh-on ripping my hair out in delightful frustration! This book saw the best character development of the auxiliary characters. Peter, Riley's best friend, had far more presence in this book and I'm glad that their friendship has remained strong. Too many books suggest that platonic friendships between male and female characters are impossible, (think of Simon and Clary in The Mortal Instruments or Bella and Jacob in the Twilight series), but this series has avoided that, which I like. I loved the development of Mort (a necromancer with a heart of gold) and Ayden (Riley's trusty witch pal) in Forgiven. Oh, and Master Stewart, one of the grand-master trappers is just awesome! They've been great characters throughout, but they were far more note-worthy in this instalment. Justine, the red-haired reporter who had my fists clenching in book two was back in Forgiven and she was just as vile. Seriously, if she doesn't get her ass handed to her by a demon some time soon, I'll consider it the one flaw of the series! She's such a grade-A bitch! In Forbidden, Jana Oliver began subverting the common ideas of good and evil and she continues this in Forgiven. The characters and beings I expected to hate were often drawn with subtle sympathy. Those I expected to be pure and good were often jaded and narrow-minded. I loved this interpretation of common beliefs and I thought it showed how much Oliver knows her stuff!show more

This book is amazing! From start to finish I could not put it down! Jana Oliver has done an awesome job on creating this story. Forgiven is the third book in The Demon Trapper series and carries on the story of Riley and the demon trappers. With action being involved throughout the book, Riley also to cope with school and boys, boys, boys! We follow her through her life as a female demon trapper and what she has to face. By the end of the book I was in awe of how Riley as a character develops and becomes her own person. She has her own opinions and is not afraid to tell everyone, and I believe this plays a big part in how the story unfolds. Riley Blackthorne seriously kicks some butt in this book and it is one of the best endings I have read and I am very glad I started reading this series! A must read for all!show more
