"Riley Blackthorne just needs a chance to prove herself—and that’s exactly what the demons are counting on...
Seventeen-year-old Riley, the only daughter of legendary Demon Trapper, Paul Blackthorne, has always dreamed of following in her father's footsteps. The good news is, with human society seriously disrupted by economic upheaval and Lucifer increasing the number of demons in all major cities, Atlanta’s local Trappers’ Guild needs all the help they can get—even from a girl. When she’s not keeping up with her homework or trying to manage her growing crush on fellow apprentice, Simon, Riley’s out saving distressed citizens from foul-mouthed little devils – Grade One Hellspawn only, of course, per the strict rules of the Guild. Life’s about as normal as can be for the average demon-trapping teen.
But then a Grade Five Geo-Fiend crashes Riley’s routine assignment at a library, jeopardizing her life and her chosen livelihood. And, as if that wasn’t bad enough, sudden tragedy strikes the Trappers’ Guild, spinning Riley down a more dangerous path than she ever could have imagined. As her whole world crashes down around her, who can Riley trust with her heart—and her life?"
This. Was. Amazing!!! Totally blew my mind to Mars! I loved everything about it!
Of course, from the start of the book, it's obvious that Riley and Beck have something going on, though they seem to be pretty oblivious (at least Riley was). I love the tension and chemistry between them. It kept me on my toes throughout the story! I kept making muffled squeals!
I was pretty mad at Simon and that made me feel bad. The guy's pretty decent, but helllllooooo, Beck? I was sort of hoping that he'd die in the end. Meh, when did I get so homicidal?
And of course, Riley is an awesome lead! She kept me interested and I love her impulsiveness! And she's kicking hell's butt one demon at a time, so whooooooo! Go Riley!!!
Overall, this book got a 5/5 and I was near-screaming when I finished it! I am dying to read the rest of the series and maybe I'll Amazon -which I hardly do - coz I feel like an active volcano right now! You nailed it, Jana Oliver!!!
