Format: Paperback
If you missed the first volume of this series, run, don't walk to the nearest bookstore and pick it up. (THE DEMON TRAPPER'S: FORSAKEN) You don't want to miss a single page of any of the adventures of Riley Blackthorne. It is a pleasure to read an adventure for the Young Adult market that has a message that transcends age and time. It is a story that may have been told before, but never with the zest and appeal and sheer joy have you felt after losing yourself in the demon filled world of Atlanta in 2018.

Riley is a seventeen year old apprentice demon hunter whose dead father has been reanimated and stolen from the grave; her friends in the Demon Hunter's Guild have been attacked by the demons of Hell; and, she is suspected of being the cause of their woes.

It seems Riley has the weight of the world on her shoulders in the ultimate battle of Good and Evil and some of her friends are not sure of which side she is on. Simon, her boyfriend who was injured in the attack, believes she is in league with Lucifer and wants nothing to do with her. Others feel that her father's appearance to warn her seconds before the attack caused the Holy Water boundary to fail. Riley's "protector" Ori seems to have more on his agenda than he is telling her.

Riley faces the normal teenage trials of school, a job and boys in addition to the task of finding out who stole her father and defending the family name against the charges of duplicity. Add in subplots about counterfeit Holy Water and the Vatican's team of demon hunters coming to Atlanta and you have a grand novel that only leaves you wanting (oh so much) more.

Jana has created marvelous characters in her previous works, but Riley, Beck and Ori are at the top of the list for becoming fully developed in my mind.

Format: Paperback
The second novel in the Demon Trappers series and one that reveals a few hidden truths that demonstrate that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. It's immersive, the characters outstanding and to be honest I had just as much fun reading this book as I feel the target audience will. Add to this cracking prose, a wonderful sense of pace and a whole hosts of twists and turns that will keep you guessing to the last page.

Finally add to this a cracking overall story arc for the series and its really one that will have readers gasping for breath with each new release thanks to Jana's almost explosive appearance on the scene. In this case I do have to wonder on which side she made her own deal as it really has been a wonderful piece of fiction. Great stuff.

Riley's life just gets tougher and tougher in the second instalment of The Demon Trappers series. Her dad's body has been stolen and resurrected by a necromancer; Simon, the boyfriend she made a deal with Heaven to save, is accusing her of being in league with the devil; Beck is "spending time" with a manipulative red-haired journalist, and the demons all seem to have it out for "Blackthorne's daughter." Her life kind of sucks.

However, with every sling and arrow, Riley gets a little harder, a little tougher. Forbidden sees Riley as a much more mature protagonist who is able to hold her own. Her blossoming relationship with Ori, a mysterious new fella who is blatantly not quite what he seems, was more grown-up than the few kisses she shared with the innocent Simon in Forsaken. But part of growing up is making some dumb mistakes and sometimes not being able to see the woods for the trees. Riley is guilty of both in Forbidden, but we forgive her because she's an immensely likeable character.

I was annoyed with Beck in this book. It remains fairly obvious that he and Riley should be together, but instead he has himself some fun with an evil snake of a reporter who is blatantly willing to work "under cover" for the story she wants. His double standards where his relationship was concerned, compared to that of Riley and Ori, were what annoyed me. Yet you kind of forgive him because he's evidently confused by his feelings for Riley and the instructions coming from his pants where the evil red-head is concerned!

This book challenged some of my assumptions about who were the good guys and who were the bad guys. I loved the blurring of the lines between good and evil, Heaven and Hell, assumption and reality. Jana Oliver crafted this sequel brilliantly.

Format: Paperback
**SPOILERS FOR FORSAKEN, THE FIRST BOOK IN THE SERIES (which you should definitely read first!)**

It's a bit difficult to give a brief summary of Forbidden without revealing too much, as there are a heck of a lot of amazing plot twists which I really don't want to spoil, but I'll try my best: Forbidden starts where Forsaken left us - with the entire city of Atlanta recovering from the demon attack that occurred at the Demon Trapper meeting; Trappers are mourning the loss of some of their greatest as well as attempting to work out how they were attacked in the first place and the citizens of Atlanta are worried that they're not being protected efficiently enough from the demons, which leads to the ruthlessly efficient Demon Hunters being called in - something the Trappers aren't best pleased about. Meanwhile, Riley's relationship with Simon is most definitely on the rocks, which leads to a growing attraction to the mysterious Ori, who vows to protect her from the deadly demon that is determined to kill her. Aside from all of this, she's trying to figure out who brought her dad back from the dead and why someone is selling counterfeit Holy Water, as well as trying to earn enough to pay the rent.

In case you haven't read Forsaken and are completely confused, the series is set in an alternate world where demons roam freely, and are graded from very harmless (Grade One a.k.a. klepto-fiends) to extremely dangerous (Grade Five a.k.a. Geo-Fiends). Trappers and Hunters do as they say on the tin with regards to the getting rid of the demonic presences, and there's quite a bit of a rivalry between the two. Witches and Necromancers (people who reanimate the dead to sell as slaves) also exist and trade freely in this alternate future of 2018.
