Book: The Demon Trappers: Forbidden
Author: Jana Oliver
Publisher: PanMacmillan
ISBN: 9780330519489
Rating: A+

"Riley's beginning to think being a demon trapper isn't all it's cracked up to be. Her dad's been stolen by a necromancer, her boyfriend's gone all weird and she's getting warm and fuzzy feelings for someone who's seriously bad news. It's tempting to give it all up and try to be normal, but that's not an option. Because the demons have plans for Riley. And they're not the only ones."

The first book in this series was amazing so when this one popped through the letterbox I was all to happy to crack on read it, and within hours it was fin. Oh my God! It was so good! It had everything you wanted, jam packed with action and Paranormal romance, and had so many twists I was not expecting. I adore this series to the core, and I can not wait for Forgiven.

For starters this book was written fantastically, just like the first in the series. The writing is just so smooth and easygoing, yet so strong and gives you all the information you need. Emotionally the writing is fantastic, because you feel absolutely everything that the characters feel, and the description is brilliant. Also the writing sets the mood for the chapter very well and it is just the right pace, making this a action packed, thrill ride filled with demons and angels and a twisted kind of love.

Actually the love square was the craziest thing ever. I mean totally caught me of guard but I loved it! I just feel for Riley, now she's all alone, but she can date me if she needs someone. ;) I mean I never Simon would turn on her like that and then Ori, who you think the whole time is the good guy {SPOILER}(who Riley even loses her virginity to){SPOLER END} turns out to be working for hell. And the exploitation of Riley's fathers deal with hell. Oh wow, it was so good. It was bang on spot with what I needed to start reading again, after I recently read a particularly bad book.

The Plot was fantastic. I remember at one point thinking, not much is happening... yet I STILL LOVE IT! Honestly you will hear that phrase a lot in this review. It was definitely a winding path. I remember on my last review Jana Oliver commented with 'And there are more twists and turns' but boy I was not expecting any of that. It was epic, to be honest and I don't know how Oliver will top it with Forgive, but she will, just like she did with Forbidden.

In this books my favorite character has wavered a lot. As soon as I realized what a evil pixie Simon was being he was gone and Ori sort of was until I realized he was trying deceive Riley but I suppose to would have to be Mort. I just though he was such a nice guy. He was so laid back and giving, helping Riley when he was risking himself and we all need someone like that. The good thing was though, that all the characters have nice good foundation, so there is nothing to question.

Well Done, Jana Oliver, you have succeeded in creating an amazing sequel, and one again a book that I loved, adored, devoured... whatever. It was so good, please just tell me Forgiven isn't long off. Oh, and also, for Forgiven, hence the name, I'm taking it either Riley forgives Simon, or Simon forgives Riley (although she did nothing), Beck forgives Riley or all? *Desperately* I need Forgiven!


  1. I think this novel sounds fantastic! Can’t wait to read it now. ;-)

  2. That sounds really great. I was on the fence about this series, but if the sequel is that good, too, I may have to give it a try!
