Book: The Demon Trappers: Forsaken
Author: Jana Oliver

ISBN: 9780330519472
Rating: A

Riley has always wanted to be a Demon Trapper like her father, and she's already following in his footsteps as one of the best. But it's tough being the only girl in an all-guy world, especially when three of those guys start making her life more complicated: Simon, the angelic apprentice who has heaven on his side; Beck, the tough trapper who thinks he's God's gift, and Ori, the strikingly sexy stranger who keeps turning up to save her ass. One thing's for sure - if she doesn't keep her wits about her there'll be hell to pay...

Okay, so let’s start off with the cover this time round, mainly because it caught my attention out of all the other books on the PanMacmillan website, but the book was amazing. It was, immense, intense and EPIC. It had me flipping pages all night just to see what happens, and boy this book blew me away, knocked me off my feet, gripped me in the gut... okay, I’ll stop now. But what I’m trying to say is... HURRY UP AND RELEASE FORBIDDEN BECUASE FORSAKEN WAS BLOODY AMAZING!!!

The story follows Riley, the daughter of a Demon Trapper, in a world where the land is ravaged by Demons in the fight between Heaven and Hell... well mainly Hell, anyway one day he father is killed and she just has a pretty hectic life, with a love triangle, demons trying to kill her, necromancers trying to get her father’s body, trying to prove herself, discovering fake holy water, and dealing with a bunch of mean girls. Oh yes, this book just has it all. (Did I mention there were spoilers?)

The book is nice and fast paced, and it kept me reading. The story is like a jigsaw, it leaves you confused and then chapters later it all slots together, and following on that not, I have to say the book was beautifully written. The style was very edgy but unique and I really enjoyed reading it.

My favourite character was either Beck or Simon. Beck is those guy who acts all tough and strong and ‘pah, you’re a twonk’ attitude character but really he’s insecure and finds it hard to express his emotions, shown when he turns Riley down and gets jealous when she and Simon start a relationship. Simon now, is this perfect angelic boy with Heaven on his side. He has a really nice and caring personality and is just... AWESOME.

I suppose I just want to read FROBIDDEN and FORGIVEN and out of five stars, I’ll give it... six!!! Jana Oliver has created and immense, awesome, cool, Novel. 


  1. Wow! What a lovely review! Thanks so much. I'm so glad you enjoyed the book. I will warn you that Simon doesn't cope with his injuries very well in FORBIDDEN. And there are more twists and turns. I hope you enjoy them. Thanks again!!

  2. @ Jana Oliver - Thanks!!! Can not wait. Thanks for the update. Should be getting a proof soon!!!!

It has been a long time since I've loved a book as much this. A court of mist and fury is by far the best book that I have read in 2016 so far, and easy surpassed it's predecessor a court of thorn and roses.

The plot of this was so incredibly per…

Apologies and Explanations

Okay guys, we need to talk and by that I mean I have some apologies and explaining to do to you. So as you've more than obviously noticed I've been extremely inactive this year, even after promising I'd try to be more active. So now I'm going to explain why. By no means have I abandoned the blog nor do I want to. I seriously love this blog so much and connecting with you all and sharing my love for books and reading with you all. In fact it's really frustrating for me to be unable to devote the amount of time I'd like to to this blog. So to reader, authors and publishers, I'm insanely sorry for my lack of presence. Anyway apologies aside let me explain why it's been this way. Last September I started my first year of A levels and quite honestly I had no idea the amount of time they'd take up in my life and they did take up way loads of time. I found that not only did I have no time write blog posts but I had no time to read either, unless you count…
