Goodreads Synopsis: 

Demon Trapper Riley Blackthorne just needs a chance to prove herself—and that’s exactly what Lucifer is counting on… 

It’s the year 2018, and with human society seriously disrupted by the economic upheavals of the previous decade, Lucifer has increased the number of demons in all major cities. Atlanta is no exception. Fortunately, humans are protected by Demon Trappers, who work to keep homes and streets safe from the things that go bump in the night. Seventeen-year-old Riley, only daughter of legendary Demon Trapper Paul Blackthorne, has always dreamed of following in her father’s footsteps. When she’s not keeping up with her homework or trying to manage her growing attraction to fellow Trapper apprentice, Simon, Riley’s out saving citizens from Grade One Hellspawn. Business as usual, really, for a demon-trapping teen. When a Grade Five Geo-Fiend crashes Riley’s routine assignment at a library, jeopardizing her life and her chosen livelihood, she realizes that she’s caught in the middle of a battle between Heaven and Hell. -Goodreads-

My Thoughts:

Riley is a young girl with the world on her shoulders.  She is trying to make everyone proud of her in this she is making trouble.  See Riley is a trying to follow in her father's foot steps....she is trying to become a demon trapper.  In this book the would has gone to hell....literally....Lucifer is on Earth and he is releasing demons to go bump in the night.  But see there is a snag in Riley's plan, something has happened to Riley that she will never forget.....her father dies.  

Now Riley is more determined to make her dad proud and become a demon trapper.  But something is standing her way....her feelings for someone.  Well that someone was her father's partner and is now her trainer.  

This book was kind of amazing.  This book has everything that you need to fall into a world that just wraps you in and does not let you out.  It was a perfect mixture of excitement, love, and tragedy.  I think that Jana Oliver really out did herself and made a world that is both scary and thrilling.  So thank you Jana, you did a great job!!!

My Rating:

I gave this book 3 out 5 stars.  I liked that book.  It had everything that a book needs.  I totally recommend this book to anyone that want to read about a back talking, smart ass, demon trapper!
