How I love Riley and Beck. I miss them and just when it becomes almost unbearable, Jana Oliver waves her magic writing instrument and my favorite Demon Trappers are back in new adventures. This time finds Riley on the discrimination end of the Master Trapper's list and not just on a local level. Apparently she's moved up the chain to the National level. They have discovered her working with magic users and are now targeting her. After a Guild representative personally makes his way to Atlanta, all hell breaks loose when Riley is put on probation and formally restricted from practicing magic, learning magic, consorting with magic users, or, at the very least, getting caught or turned in for doing any of that on the sly. This, of course, makes trapping demons quite difficult for Riley because all trappers use magical spheres to rid their cities of demons. If she continues to trap then she not only endangers herself but all who choose to work with her. The Guild is setting her up - but why?
The playing field has changed for Riley. After what happened in Grave Matters, she has taken to learning a little bit of defensive magic. She works with both the local witches and the local summoners so we get to see characters from other books that we've grown to know and some we've even grown to love. Word has come down from the National Guild, however, that makes magical ability a no-no for her. She works as best she can with the limitations being imposed but when she is confronted by another Archfiend, she knows that something has to give before she really does end up losing her life.Read more ›
This is the fifth book in The Demon Trappers series. I absolutely loved it!
Riley Blackthorne is a fantastic character. She has made a few mistakes, both personally and career-wise, but that just makes her human. I love her feisty attitude and have enjoyed watching her grow from a sixteen year old with a chip on her shoulder in the first book, The Demon Trapper's Daughter (US) or Forsaken (UK), to a determined young woman of nineteen in this book, who has literally faced both Heaven and Hell. Being a demon trapper is not an easy job, and being the only female in a male dominated career is definitely not easy either. Nevertheless, Riley can definitely kick Hell's ass one demon at a time.
I have been eagerly awaiting the release of this book and pre-ordered my copy when I found out it was available. Unfortunately, due to my large reading list, I wasn't able to read it when it was released in October last year.
I started to read this book and didn't put it down until I had finished it. The story is told through the eyes of both Riley and Beck. I felt like I was meeting family members or friends again after a long absence. I have missed these characters a lot, especially Denver Beck and the Kleptofiend (AKA Magpie demon) that began this journey for me. Denver Beck (or Backwards Boy as Riley calls him) became my first book boyfriend way back in 2011 when I read Forsaken. He is now training to become a Grand Master, and engaged to Riley, who is now a Journeyman. I also liked meeting a few of the other characters like Mortimer and Ayden, although I still have reservations about Lord Ozymandias. He didn't enamor himself to me when I first met him in the earlier books, and now he's only just bearable.Read more ›
Riley has always struggled to get the respect she deserves from some of the Guild members, there are those who just don't want a female trapper around and others who don't trust her because of her father's actions even though he was a legend in his own right before his mistakes became public knowledge. Anyway, the fact that she is now studying magic has given the people who are against her even more ammunition to throw at her but Riley isn't one to back down easily and she knows that she's following the correct path. As Riley faces off against the outspoken few who fear her the entire Atlanta chapter of the Guild are facing even bigger problems and it's going to take all of Riley's skill to try and talk them out of it.
Mind Games is a great addition to the series, I love seeing how confident Riley has become and it was great seeing her start to pass on her knowledge to a whole new generation of Trappers. I'm so sick of seeing people look down on her though and it really made me mad that she doesn't get the respect she has earned from all of the Guild.Read more ›
