Title: Forgiven

Series: The Demon Trappers #3

Author: Jana Oliver

(read on March 11th, 2012)

My rating: 4.5 of 5

Jana Oliver's third spellbinding Demon Trappers novel - following Forsaken and Forbidden - brings all new thrills, as Riley Blackthorne takes on demons, love... and the future of the human race.

The days are growing darker for 17-year-old demon trapper Riley Blackthorne. With her father’s reanimated body back safely, Beck barely speaking to her because of a certain hunky Fallen angel, and a freshly-made deal with Lucifer, she has enough on her hands to last a normal teenage lifetime. Though she bargained with Heaven to save his life, her ex-boyfriend Simon has told the Vatican’s Demon Hunters that she’s working with Hell. So now she’s in hiding, at the top of everyone’s most-wanted list. But it’s becoming clear that this is bigger than Riley, and rapidly getting out of control:  something sinister is happening in Atlanta… or someone. The demons are working together for the first time ever and refusing to die, putting civilians in harm’s way. Riley thinks she might know who’s behind it all, but who’s going to believe her? Caught between her bargain with Heaven and her promise to Lucifer, Riley fears the final war is coming – and it may be closer than anyone thinks…

My Thoughts on the Book:

Ok, so Forgiven is definitely the best book in the series so far! I'll try not to go into too much details, so I won't spoil the story. First of all, I started to like Riley again, the only time I rolled my eyes at her was when she was thinking of Ori (I just really didn't like him). Anyway, it was fast-paced with lots of action, I definitely wasn't expecting most of what happened in the 2nd half of the book to happen in this book the zombie demons were definitely unexpected but I was glad that the author decided to do all that :) So, that was great! Beck was again so lovable, the chemistry between Riley & Beck was great, Simon was one really big idiot & at the end I finally started to like Ori a little, but only because of a couple of things he did ;) As I said, no spoilers, but I really can't wait to read the last book & to find out everything about Beck! So, I love the series & I recommend it & although I usually try not to have high expectations for a book so I won't be disappointed, I have to admit that I have quite high expectations for Foretold, but I have faith in Jana Oliver!!!
