I absolutely love Riley and Beck. The many levels of their relationship just continue to intensify throughout the series. Riley and Beck are also very strong survivors. Both have lost so much, in different ways, and yet they are fiercely engaged in keeping themselves, Atlanta, and each other, in check as best they can.
Riley has definitely been put through the ringer in this series. Heaven and Hell still own her, as the marks on her hands prove. One hand bears the brand of Heaven and the other hand bears the mark of Hell. What is it going to take to keep her soul out of Hell, where it clearly doesn't belong?
Beck has been living with his past haunting him and a reporter threatening to expose it to the world. He won't confide in Riley, so as not to chase her away. Then the time comes to travel to his hometown to take care of Sadie, his dying mother, as well as face the people who know him the best....Or do they?
We spend a good deal of time in Beck's hometown but we learn a lot while we're there. We see relationships strained, tested, and destroyed. Lies and deceit are revealed and some blood is shed. And of course, the demons. Beck and Riley can't get away from them, even outside of Atlanta. Some of them aren't the spawns of Hell, either.
Back in Atlanta, things are really heating up. Sartael is about to break free of his prison, and confront Lucifer, in hopes of taking over as ruler in Hell. Will anyone be able to stop the war that is threatening to destroy everyone?
Riley continues to prove her strength, ability, and worth to the trappers of Atlanta. She's a very strong heroine in book 4 just as in the previous 3 books. Beck discovers that surviving without Riley would be impossible. The chemistry they share is phenomenal and very evident from Book 1.
As I've said before - Ms. Oliver's writing style is unique and fresh. Her ability to write with passion and such in-depth detail makes reading her tales very enjoyable. The consistency in the plot is there, the characters are well developed,.... and the storyline??? Fabulous!!! Everything came full circle and I got to read the ending I craved right from the start of the series.
The final book in the series is just as strong, if not stronger, that the previous 3. What wasn't wrapped up in "Forgiven," Book 3, was neatly wrapped with a ribbon and bow in "Foretold." I am sad that this is the end of the series, since it's so spectacular, but I wouldn't have wanted to keep dragging things out to the point that I wouldn't want to read it anymore.
Thank you Jana Oliver, for writing a series that will stay with me forever!!
Since St. Martin's had sent me the previous two sequels in the Demon Trappers series, I, as patiently as possible, awaited the arrival of the fourth book.
And that patience was ALL FOR NOTHING because I was never sent a copy. So when I received an Amazon gift card for Christmas, guess what I spent some of it on? Because ya'll have to understand: I've about had it with patience. Patience is NOT a virtue, because it gets you NOTHING (as St. Martin's has proven). I NEEDED TO KNOW what would happen to two of the most stubborn characters in recent history and whether or not my hopes for them would be heartlessly dashed. Foretold by Jana Oliver gave me everything I wanted, maybe a little too easily, but I'm NOT complaining. Not really.
Ok, So What Had Happened Was: The redhead reporter that had been bouncing around in Beck's bed has unearthed something disturbing about his past and he won't let Riley help. At least, not willingly. Meanwhile, Hell's politics are taking a turn for the DETRIMENTAL TO THE ENTIRE WORLD and everyone is warily preparing for a supernatural battle for the souls of all that is, essentially, inevitable. Will Beck and Riley FINALLY have their turn? And will they both be able to survive Hell's bloody conflict literally rising to the surface?
Reading this series has been a tumultuous, though nonetheless awesome, experience. Mainly because a lot of it feels fresh from Jana's, and only Jana's, brain. We have a devastating picture of Atlanta now five years in the future as it stands on the rickety brink of an apocalyptic meltdown. The economy has been doing poorly, as have people in their lives, reflecting the turmoil both in the heaven and hell overseeing the slow decline of earth's inhabitants. With magic arising in very unexpected places, and developing into varied professions, people are worse for wear, to say the least. Including Riley Anora Blackthorne.
All in all, I love the pants off this chick. Despite all the darkness, heartbreak, and plain evil she's experienced and had to work through, Riley never quite loses her grip on her own strength. She consistently prevails, no matter what fate, heaven, or hell throws at her. Things got so darn bad for her that I started to feel a little feisty toward all her enemies.
You just want to reach in and protect her, because no matter who's in her corner, somehow she gets letdown, shoved around, or brutally rebuffed. Her heart has taken hit after hit, and she stubbornly remains standing. I LOVE HER FOR THAT. Don't get me wrong, she's prone to errors in judgment and she has her share of flaws, but I love that about her as well. I completely accept her as a fictional person, and it's been so long since I've been able to say that.
`Sides all that noise, the dark, dilapidating world-building combined with the concept of demon trapping has been a source of COMPLETE FASCINATION. It never ceases to amaze me how freaking cool the demon trappers are, the range of them and their abilities, as well as visualizing them in action. And of course, I can't suppress the complimentary *fist-pump* that comes with Riley being the only girl ever admitted into the Demon Trappers Guild. Her dedication to the profession, and determination to do right by her father's legacy, makes her worthy of anything.
INCLUDING DENVER FLIPPING BECK. The guy who stubbornly doesn't want to admit he's been waiting in the wings. This is a series of four books, and for every inch of progress between them, someone drops the metaphorical ruler and we have to start all over. There have been so many setbacks, and I've been so darn tired of waiting, but I am RIDICULOUSLY PLEASED.
Was this conclusion a successful end to the series? Yes, yes, yes. There was action, character development, mystery, and a happy surplus of emotion and romance. There's no ambiguous `everything will pan out eventually' send-off, but a definitive wrap-up that stays true to Riley, Beck, and all the rest. Will I read more written by Jana Oliver? JUST YOU TRY TO STOP ME.
