Review: The Demon Trapper's Daughter by Jana Oliver

Released: February 1, 2011
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
Rated: YA
Buy The Demon Trapper's Daughter

Riley has always wanted to be a Demon Trapper like her father, and she's already following in his footsteps as one of the best. But it's tough being the only girl in an all-guy world, especially when three of those guys start making her life more complicated: Simon, the angelic apprentice who has heaven on his side; Beck, the tough trapper who thinks he's God's gift, and Ori, the strikingly sexy stranger who keeps turning up to save her ass. One thing's for sure - if she doesn't keep her wits about her there'll be hell to pay...

What I thought:

This was a slow start for me. I wasn't really feeling it when I first started reading. But by the second or third chapter, I was hooked. I stayed up way too late and woke up way too early to finish the book.

This wasn't exactly what I thought it was going to be. While I enjoyed it, I loved how I didn't really know what was going on. I didn't read the back of the book before starting, which isn't usual for me. There were parts that I figured out easily, but there were some I had not. And I love that. I love it when I can't figure out the entire thing before the end.

I liked the idea of Riley trying to be the first girl, ever, to become a master trapper. Maybe it's just because I am a girl, but it's nice to see when characters still try to do things despite it being a mans game. I'm a sucker for those kinds of stories. I'm excited to see what all Riley will be able to do.

I wasn't happy about the ending. It seemed to cut off almost abruptly, leaving the rest as the intro of the next book. I didn't want the book to end at all and was disappointed when I had no more to read. It will be a long wait for the next one, but I'm really excited to continue this story.

My Rating:

I looooved this one too! But I got to wait til the end of August for the second one! Unbelievable! But at least it is in the same calendar year. Just too long in between.

My IMM goes up tomorrow, be sure to stop by!
