The Demon Trapper's Daughter by Jana Oliver

Riley Blackthorne isn't your average teenager. The year is 2018 and the world is over-run by demons. Riley's father, Paul, is a demon trapper and Riley, his apprentice. Riley struggles to remember everything her dad has taught her when she performs her first trap, and with a bit of chaos, she eventually succeeds. However, her dad isn't so lucky on his on job, and the demon kills him.

Riley is now on her own, but her dad's partner, Denver Beck, tries to watch out for Riley. She used to have a big crush onDenver but now finds him annoying. She can use his help though. She has to watch over her dad's grave, so the necromancers don't turn him into a zombie. She also becomes apprenticed to a Master Demon Trapper and one of his apprentices is Simon, a boy who instantly steals Riley's heart.

Between the pressure of living now on her own with the responsibility of paying the bills, protecting her father's body and trying to learn her craft, Riley doesn't have time for play or rest. She wants revenge on the demon that killed her father and won't stop until she succeeds -- even if it means her own death.

THE DEMON TRAPPER'S DAUGHTER is an action-packed adventure with romance, demons and a young heroine who the reader can empathize with. Oliver has built an interesting and vivid world with diverse and riveting characters with different goals that kept this reader entranced. I can't wait for the next one, SOUL THIEF!

  1. Book 2 is somewhere in the mail for me! Hopefully will arrive today, I'm itching to read it!


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
