Foretold by Jana Oliver

In the fourth Demon Trappers novel, Riley faces the final battle for humanity and Beck's heart—and Hell is the least of her problems.

Now that Riley’s managed to (just barely) fend off Armageddon, everything’s changed. Well . . . most things. After their passionate kiss before the big battle in the cemetery, Beck is back to treating her like a little girl, as if nothing ever happened. While she’d love to just tell him off and move on, Riley vowed to take care of Beck the way he’s taken care of her since her father’s death—but she’s about to get a whole lot more than she bargained for. When she’s commissioned to go with Beck to his hometown and help him care for his dying mother, they stumble too close to a dark and murderous secret, one that Beck fears will drive Riley away from him forever. As chaos breaks loose, Riley may be Beck's only hope for redemption . . . and survival.

Meanwhile, up in Atlanta, it’s quickly becoming clear that Heaven may have won a battle, but the war is far from over. Riley and Beck face a stormy future, as Lucifer's ex-right-hand-man, Sartael, proves himself to be more resilient than anyone thought. He has Atlanta in his grip and is about to begin a brutal war with the prince of Hell. As the seconds tick down toward a final confrontation, it's up to Riley and the man she loves to finally defeat their old enemy, or lose everything they've fought for.

 In the fourth and final installment of the DEMON TRAPPERS series, Riley Blackthorne accompanies Denver Beck back to his hometown. His mom is dying and he needs to say goodbye and take care of her personal belongings. He doesn't want Riley with him; he doesn't want her to see how the town treats him. Beck's been running from his past for a long time and he hardly ever speaks about it. 

When the truth arises, Beck worries that Riley will turn her back on him. She doesn't
, but she does give him some advice; face the past so you can move fresh into the future. He does just that, but it gets him kidnapped. Riley looks tirelessly for him and finally succeeds in finding him. When she professes her love for him, Beck puts her on a bus back home and she worries that he will never want to speak with her again.

Once home, Riley is yanked from her dreams by the fallen angel Ori. He owns her soul from a previous large battle and now he's putting her to work. He is to slay Lucifer's enemies and he wants Riley to be his second. It's exhausting work and,  at times, horrific. She knows she can't continue this way, but without her soul, she has no choice. What she doesn't know is that Ori is training her for a battle that is about to commence - a battle he hopes she survives.

With almost non-stop action, a love story that is about to bloom and an age-old mystery solved, FORETOLD is the best of the series! Riley and Beck make some heart-wrenching decisions, and their characters really shine in this installment. The plot unfolds at a steady pace, leaving this reader hard-pressed to put the book down. If you enjoy an excellent paranormal young adult read with memorable characters and exceptional writing, you won't want to miss this series!

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.
