4.0 out of 5 stars YA urban fantasy with a dystopian twist 7 Jan 2011
By I Read, Therefore I Blog VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
It's 2018 and 17 year old Riley Blackthorne splits school with working as the only female apprentice Demon Hunter to her dad, Paul, so they can pay off the exorbitant medical bills run up treating Riley's late mother. However some Demon Hunters - notably Harper, who has a grudge with Riley's father - object to her apprenticeship, seeking any excuse to throw her out.

Riley though has more important things to worry about when her father is killed by a Grade 5 demon. Even as she tries to come to terms with his death, she finds herself having to deal with the fact that necromancers want to raise his body to turn him into a Deader (a slave to the rich). Her only ally is Beck (her dad's former apprentice), but their relationship has been tense ever since he shot down her crush on him 2 years earlier and his high handed attitude combined with his reaction to her growing attention to Harper's apprentice, Simon, a religiously devout hottie, make things more difficult. Soon Riley finds herself at the centre of a hellstorm and everyone seems to want a piece of her.

Jana Oliver's novel, the first in a YA trilogy, is a mix of urban fantasy and future dystopia. Her depiction of an Atlanta where the government is too broke to even maintain school buildings is credible and at times feels strangely prescient. She's also clearly put a lot of thought into her world building, drawing distinctions between trappers and hunters, establishing different grades of demon and their relative powers, hinting at the involvement of the Catholic church and throwing in other supernatural elements e.g. necromancy in a way that makes for an entertaining mix.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW. 28 Dec 2010
Format:Paperback
Riley Blackthorne
Kicking hell's ass one demon at a time...

Riley has always wanted to be a Demon Trapper like her father, and she's already following in his footsteps as one of the best. But it's tough being the only girl in an all-guy world, expecially when three of those guys start making her life more complicated:

Simon, the angelic apprentice who has heavon on his side, Beck, the rough trapper who thinks he's God's gift and Ori, the strikinly sexy stranger who keeps turning up to save her life.

One things for sure - if she doesn't keep her wits about her there'll be hell to pay...

This was the most refreshing book I've read in a long time. I am (of course) a fan of all the paranormal romance novels like Twilight and The House of Night Series but this is different, on so many levels. Because it's about a girl, a girl who TRAPS demons. She doesn't suck blood, or fly around as an angel saving the guys she loves. She is a human girl, in the world in 2018. It was refreshing to read about a human girl and her kicking ass without 'superpowers' just using training and her own wit. As a charactor Riley is lovable and you can relate to her through the tragedies her life has and the feelings she has. She is a real charactor because she has flaws and issues just like real people.

I cannot wait for the next two books of this trilogy, I couldn't put this book down and really recommend it.

Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Riley is an apprentice demon trapper. She's good at it too, just like her dad, and wants to follow in his footsteps, despite the misgivings of the demon trapper council. When her dad is killed by a demon, it makes sense that she should carry on, with the small matter of needing to keep vigil over his body to prevent it being stolen and used for menial labour. And then there's the matter of her apprenticeship, and a dark plot to keep the trappers from doing their work..

This is gripping, fast-moving, adventuring of the highest order, Riley is a great kick-ass teen and full of the usual teen angst and worries, although despite a few problems at the makeshift schools she has to attend, most of her worries are demonic in origin. Riley has to grow up fast and meet some adult situations (death, destruction, paying the rent) as best she can, but has good friends and a strong self-confidence instilled by her father.

Demons make a nice change from vampires, and there's plenty of action here, quite a few dramatic moments and heart-in-your-mouth set pieces, making this a great read for teens and adults alike. I loved this and am eagerly waiting for the sequel, as there's more fun here than just one book could contain.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant surprise! 24 May 2012
By Laura
Format:Paperback
I didn't have any great hopes for this book, mostly because I wasn't that keen on the cover. However, the blurb was interesting so I figured I'd give it a shot.

To say I was pleasantly surprised would be an understatement. I was, as we say here in Wales, gobsmacked! This book was so astoundingly good that when I finished it I went straight on to the kindle app on my iPhone and purchased the sequel. Then I finished that and had to by part three! I read all three in a day, even though I had to stay up into the wee hours to finish. Two words: worth it!

Riley Blackthorne is the only female Demon Trapper, so she has a lot to prove. Furthermore, her dad is a legend in the business so she's got some pretty big boots to fill, too. And she rocks. She was strong, funny and determined and I loved her.

The third person narrative is split between her perspective and that of Beck, Riley's father's demon trapping partner. Beck is a country-boy-made-good who has a streak of arrogant stubbornness to him which hides some deep vulnerabilities. He wants to protect Riley, but tends to express himself in such ways that annoy her. Their banter is at once infuriating and hilarious.

As the narrative progresses, Riley has to face some grim challenges. I was hit-for-six by the inciting incident of the book and then completely charmed by Riley as she tried to cope with all of the darkness in her life.

One of the glimmers of light in her world is Simon, a fellow apprentice. Jana Oliver writes their scenes with tender sweetness and I'm sure I was meant to love him, but I just didn't. Maybe it was his piousness which made me feel a bit "meh" about him, (I'm sorry but I can't imagine I'd ever go for a guy who wore a big wooden cross around his neck...
