Editorial Reviews


“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

By Amanda Welling on March 27, 2012
Format: Paperback
First Impressions: The Demon Trapper series is one of my favorites, and I had been pulling my hair out (not literally, of course) to get my hands on Forgiven. If you haven't read the first two books in this series yet, you need to run out to your local library or bookstore and pick them up because they are wonderful. There are so many good things to love in these books, including an awesome, strong female protagonist that completely rocks. I also love the cover art on all three books available so far.

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.

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.

I absolutely love this series. I am not fully sure why that is. Oliver's writing style just draws me in and I love the characters, the unique magic, and the world. I seriously could not put this book down, I just loved it soooo much. The fourth and final book in this series will be, Foretold, and is scheduled for an August 2012 release.

Riley finally has her dead dad back in custody. But with the Demon Hunters in town from the Vatican (and suspicions of her having made a deal with Hell) Riley is in danger. Not to mention the outfall of her liasons with a certain Fallen angel; after learning about that Beck is totally pissed at her. Problem is Riley can sense things are spinning out of control in Atlanta and she fears the final war between good and evil is close at hand.

Riley has finally gets a bit of relief after all of the horrible things that happened at the end of the last book. Her dad is dead, but has been recovered by Mort. But things aren't going to ease up on her anytime soon, her liaisons with the Fallen Angel have made her a target of the Demon Hunters and now she is forced to go on the run.

Riley does some stupid things in this book, but she also grows a lot as a character. We finally see her opening up to some of the people around her and accepting their help.

We see a ton more of Peter and Beck in this book. It is wonderful to see what an awesome friend Peter is to Riley, she really needs the support and I am so glad he was there for her. Riley finally takes off the blindfold where Beck is concerned and it was great to see things finally heat up between those two.

We also see a lot more of Mort the necromancer, he was a wonderful character.
