#13 - "Forsaken" by Jana Oliver

Title: Forsaken
Author: Jana Oliver
Series: The Demon Trappers, Book 1

Riley Blackthorne just needs a chance to prove herself - and that's exactly what the demons are counting on.
Seventeen-year-old Riley, the only daughter of legendary Demon Trapper, Paul Blackthorne, has always dreamed of following in her father's footsteps. The good news is, with human society seriously disrupted by economic upheaval and Lucifer increasing the number of demons in all major cities, Atlanta's local Trappers' Guild needs all the help they can get - even from a girl. When she's not keeping up with her homework or trying to manage her growing crush on fellow apprentice, Simon, Riley's out saving distressed citizens from foul-mouthed little devils - Grade One Hellspawn only, of course, per the strict rules of the Guild. Life's about as normal as can be for the average demon-trapping teen.
But then a Grade Five Geo-Fiend crashes Riley's routine assignment at a library, jeopardizing her life and her chosen livelihood. And, as if that wasn't bad enough, sudden tragedy strikes the Trappers' Guild, spinning Riley down a more dangerous path than she ever could have imagined. As her whole world crashes down around her, who can Riley trust with her heart - and her life?

My rating: 4.5 of 5

My thoughts on the book:
I loved this book! In the first 100 pages this book made me laugh out loud & made me cry. I was wrapped up in the story & I liked the characters, I especially loved Beck! I have to say that I wasn't too fond of Simon & their romance. I guess he was just too nice ;) Although for me the book started amazing, the rest of it was good, too. It was fun & action-packed & I can't wait to read the next book in the series! I highly recommend it!
