“Oliver delivers a book that will delight her series fans. Adventurous and hypnotic, the characters will pull the reader in. In total, this book adds more drama and adult content to this popular series; a great installment!” ―RT Book Reviews (4 stars) on Forgiven
“Caught between Heaven and Hell (and literally tattooed by both), 17-year-old apprentice demon-catcher Riley Blackthorne has made some bad deals... This invigorating entry in the series deepens readers' understanding of major characters and neatly ties up a few plot points while introducing new conflicts to tantalize fans until the next book arrives.” ―Booklist on Forgiven
“The second Demon Trappers book is even better than the first. The demons are more wicked, the love is more epic, and there's even a twist ending that has me clamoring for the next book.” ―RT Book Reviews (4 ½ stars) on Soul Thief
“The rock ‘em-sock ‘em, cliffhanger ending…. A strong female protagonist and equally strong male characters will make this title popular.” ―VOYA on Soul Thief
“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 Book 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

Top Customer Reviews
First 50 Pages: Each of Jana Oliver's books gets better and better. It is amazing to be able to watch an author grow and change over the course of a series. The first book was good, but it wasn't mind blowing in any way. The second book was better, with more action and excitement. This brings us to Forgiven, which is pretty much amazing. There is a little something for everyone to be found in this book, including a ton of action with an urban fantasy flare, some romance, and characters that you won't easily forget. I immediately was pulled into the story, finished the whole book in about 6 hours, and now I'm just going to continue to go bonkers until the next book becomes available.
Characters & Plot: There is so much going on in this book that it is amazing the author handled the plot so incredibly well. In Forgiven, Riley has to handle the consequences of hanging around a hot fallen angel and the deal she made with Lucifer. She has a lot of convincing to do if she doesn't want to be shipped to Rome, because the Hunters are suspicious of what had happened with her and Ori and they believe she is working for Hell.Read more ›
But for Riley Blackthorne things are even worse. The mistake she made has cost her far more than just her pride. It may have permanently cost her a friend when she revealed what she'd done. It has forced her to go into hiding from the Vatican as a deal she made would surely have them questioning her loyalty. And it's put her in the middle of a war between heaven and hell that she's not sure she can prevent.
Though she may be the only one who can. And she'll have to figure out how to stop it. Fast. With a city already under siege from hell's demons, time is running out. And this time its not just Atlanta that this looming battle threatens but the whole of humanity.
Forgiven is the heart-pounding, non-stop action-packed and absolutely enthralling third book in the Demon Trappers series by author Jana Oliver. This utterly riveting installment returns readers to an Atlanta where things are even more dire, for not only Riley but the trappers and the hunters.
With heaven and hell ready to do battle, it's up to Riley to keep the war at bay and keep Atlanta safe from total annihilation. No small task for a Master trapper, an almost impossible task for a seventeen-year-old apprentice like herself. But with the deals she made, Riley may be the only one who can prevent Armageddon.Read more ›
Can I just say that I. FREAKING. LOVED. THIS. BOOK! and be done with my review? No? Okay, well it's true. I love this series so much, it's definitely toward the top of my list of favorite YA series. This is one of those series that you just can't help but give EVERY book in the series 5 stars. And that is exactly what I did! I checked because I couldn't remember!
Forgiven completely pulled me into the story like no time had passed. Which, really, between Soul Thief and Forgiven, no time had really passed at all. Which I LOOOVE about this series! If my husband hadn't of stolen this book and started reading it after he finished the first two, I would have probably finished it within two days at least. Once I started reading it again, I couldn't stop. I kept having to MAKE myself to stop in order to savor it, but it was hard!
I can't think of a single thing that bothered me in this book, I mean yeah, sure there was a lot. But it was the things that are MEANT to annoy other you in a book. If that makes sense. That's the only things that bothered me. The writing is amazing and flows well and you just seriously can't stop.
And the characters, oh my! You get to learn a lot more about Beck in this book and I love it and you learn a lot more about the Demon Hunters, which now I've kind of grown to like. At least a few of them. =) You also see who Riley's REAL friends are and she's got a great bunch. =) I'd love to have them as friends!
You get to see her dad a bit as well, though I'm not going to say anything more about that as to not give off any spoilers. And if you haven't started this series yet, DO. IT. NOW! Seriously. I'm not joking. Buy it, borrow it, or even steal it if you have to.Read more ›
