Demon Trapper Riley Blackthorne just needs a chance to prove herself—and that’s exactly what Lucifer is counting on…
It’s the year 2018, and with human society seriously disrupted by the economic upheavals of the previous decade, Lucifer has increased the number of demons in all major cities. Atlanta is no exception. Fortunately, humans are protected by Demon Trappers, who work to keep homes and streets safe from the things that go bump in the night. Seventeen-year-old Riley, only daughter of legendary Demon Trapper Paul Blackthorne, has always dreamed of following in her father’s footsteps. When she’s not keeping up with her homework or trying to manage her growing attraction to fellow Trapper apprentice, Simon, Riley’s out saving citizens from Grade One Hellspawn. Business as usual, really, for a demon-trapping teen. When a Grade Five Geo-Fiend crashes Riley’s routine assignment at a library, jeopardizing her life and her chosen livelihood, she realizes that she’s caught in the middle of a battle between Heaven and Hell.
The Demon Trapper’s Daughter is a wonderful read that will hook you from page one. I absolutely loved Riley (the main character) and I also loved her attitude and the amount of emotions that Jana put into this book. It seemed like every time Riley cried, I cried. I could relate to her in a way that it doesn’t seem a lot of authors can accomplish. And I believe that everyone will be able to connect with her as well. I also loved the other characters Denver Beck and Simon. I could also relate to Beck in many ways and I swear that I know a few guys that are exactly like him. Same with Simon.
In this book Jana seems to put every single character through some extremely hard times. Especially Riley. But you know what that showed me? It showed me that if Riley can pull through the things that she did….then so can the rest of us. She lost some very important people in her life and almost lost others, but each time this happened she would pull through in the end and prove to everyone that being the only girl Demon Trapper was a privilege that she was going to continue to pursue no matter what. Now I don’t know about you but doesn’t that seem to make Riley one badass main character?
I personally can’t wait until I can get y hands on Soul Thief/Forbidden. This story drew me in so much that I need to keep the story going. It is a must read in my eyes and I can’t believe that I waited so long to actually read it.
