This review is from: Forgiven (Demon Trappers) (Paperback)
If things in Atlanta were a mess before, they're in total chaos now. The Vatican's Demon Hunters still haven't left, making life difficult for the trappers. The situation with the holy water hasn't been resolved, continuing to put people at risk. And the number of demons congregating in the city has risen drastically, creating doubt about the trappers' ability to do their job.
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.
And with the Vatican's Demon Hunters not sure she's trustworthy, Simon looking to prove she's siding with hell, Ori out of the picture and Beck practically ignoring her, she has very few people she can turn to for help. So when a new threat proves to be even more than the hunters' and trappers' combined forces can handle, new alliances will have to be forged in order to protect the citizens of Atlanta.
Jana Oliver does an incredible job of moving the plot forward, keeping the pace fast and exciting, the characters appealing, the story captivating and the chemistry sizzling. The world is gritty. The characters are a wonderful mix of lovable, relatable, serious, sarcastic, honorable, flawed, devious and dangerous. And the story is so incredibly addictive that readers won't be able to put it down.
This all-consuming, tension-filled story has all the excitement of the previous installments, surprises that will keep readers anxiously anticipating each chapter, enemies that will make the Grade Five Geo-Fiends look tame by comparison, and an absolutely gripping and nail-biting build-up to an ending that will make the wait for the final book absolutely torturous.
