Editorial Reviews


“The rock ‘em-sock ‘em, cliffhanger ending leaves no doubt that there will be a third installment of this series.... A strong female protagonist and equally strong male characters will make this title popular with young adults of both genders.” – VOYA

“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)

We find ourselves at a crossroads by the end of Soul Thief. Our beloved characters need to deal with some rash and very tough decisions they've made. While Soul Thief feels more like connective tissue for Books One and Three there is so much that is yet to be explained, and huge new questions are introduced- it is still essential reading.

Soul Thief- and Demon Trappers Daughter- read more adult than YA. If Riley weren't seventeen, this book would be found in a different section of your bookstore or library. It's mature, it's brutal, it's raw- and that's just the language and the emotional drama. Layering in a stupendously fantastic urban fantasy steeped in demons, angels, necromancers, witches... and who knows what else. All of that set against a near futuristic crumbling dystopian south.

The series, and its unique mythology, is incredibly well thought out and all the details are intricately constructed. Atlanta, a bankrupt city of five million souls, where even death cannot save you or your family from your debts. If you die before having settled with your creditors, they can have a necromancer raise you as a zombie and then sell you as a slave to the rich.

And while Riley and Beck- the two narrators of the series- don't get much face time together, their scenes are the most intense and turbulent. These two characters are at their best and their worst all in the same conversation. They go from defensive, to emotionally naked, to reaching DEF CON 4 levels of confusion, hurt, and anger.

Beck and Riley have had the harshest of wake up calls as the Soul Thief draws to a close. Riley can no longer avoid dealing, consequences are upon her on a biblical scale. Beck will have to realize that his treatment of her has NEVER done any good!

Format: Paperback
I adored the fast paced, distinctive storyline of The Demon Trapper's Daughter which made Soul Thief an automatic add to my must-read pile. Jana Oliver's second installment is good but the change in the plot's direction does have me concerned. I was really hoping for some romance this time around, instead we get something else entirely and I'm still not sure how I feel about it. Beck, Simon and Ori all had the potential of being sexy alpha males except they act like complete morons 99% of the time. Soul Thief delivers a very different feel than its predecessor and I'm not sure if I like it.

Things have gone from bad to worse since we last saw Riley. This poor girl just can't get a break! The demons know her name, her dad's now among the walking dead, her (ex) boyfriend is convinced that she made a deal with the Devil, and the list continues! There aren't even any little victories; no glimpses of hope. As a result, the story felt very weight downed with little to look forward to anytime soon. I understand that life is different here. Future Atlanta is not a pretty place but still, small victories, right? Life has to give us a few good moments here and there otherwise what's the point!?

I was really hopping that Beck would make a move on Riley but alas he only morphs into an even bigger stick in the mudd. No one can be that good intentioned! C'mon people, it's the end of the world! Do you really want to spend it alone? Okay, so her guardian's a no-go but what about Simon and Ori? I'm afraid that there's not much to report on either front. Simon is now the biggest douche in Oliver's universe and as for Ori... eeeck! Completely unexpected! I'm also a little angered by what Jana does to his character. He was the light at the end of the tunnel.

Soul Thief starts off directly after The Demon Trapper's Daughter left off, and with that said, the same feeling I had while reading the first book came back to me. But it was short lived. To say I'd expected so much for the sequel is the absolute truth. And yet, for me, it didn't deliver.

I think the pacing was the real problem. It didn't move fast enough for me, especially for a book set in a world full of demons and angels, and their captors and devotees. I keep feeling like a full-scale war, a big battle or something exciting and epic is looming closer, but still from a considerable distance. I enjoyed Soul Thief's predecessor, and made allowances for it's semi-slow pacing, because it was the starter book, the intro to the series. But in the sequel I expected more of a BAM! kind of deal. The search for Riley's dad was a bit tedious, in that she didn't explore any very intriguing avenues to locate him. The only aspect of her investigation that I found remotely interesting was being amongst the necromancers, but I came to find that they weren't nearly as exciting as I'd thought them to be. Since a good chunk of the book was consumed by the search for her father's corpse, I felt... bored. Where was the perilous action, the deadly fights against the hellish fiends everyone's so worked up about?

The fighting, especially toward the end of book one, was one of it's biggest appeals for me. That and Beck. And unsurprisingly, Beck and Riley's, I don't know, thing antagonized my already rising level of frustration with the book. In book one, the tension between the two was a good thing, even when Riley began seeing Simon (and don't even get me started on him), but during take two I just grew aggravated. Perhaps it's my innate impatience, that generally comes out while reading.
