Review: Soul Thief (Forbidden) by Jana Oliver

Released: August 30, 2011
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
Rated: YA
Series: The Demon Trappers, Book 2
Buy: Amazon
Riley Blackthorne’s adventures continue in the second spellbinding Demon Trappers novel, as she battles demons… and a love that could destroy her At the start of the second thrilling installment of the Demon Trappers series, 17-year-old Riley Blackthorne has about had it up to here. After the devastating battle at the Tabernacle, trappers are dead and injured, her sweet boyfriend Simon is gravely injured, and now her beloved late father’s been illegally poached from his grave by a very powerful necromancer. Add to the mix: Ori, one sizzling hot freelance demon hunter who’s made himself Riley’s unofficial body guard, and Beck, a super over-protective “friend” who acts more like a grouchy granddad, and Riley’s almost ready to leave Atlanta altogether. But as the demon count in Atlanta increases, the already crippled Trappers Guild has its hands full, and, when the Vatican finally sends its own Demon Hunters to take care of the city’s “little” problem, pandemonium breaks loose. Only Riley knows that she might be the center of Hell’s attention: an extremely powerful Grade 5 demon is stalking her, and her luck can't last forever. As Riley’s life becomes a dangerous balancing act, will she be strong enough not to tip? And who will be there to catch her if she falls?

What I thought

Holy cow! This series is really getting revved up! I haven't been reading too much PNR/UF books lately, but this is definitely staying on my must watch list for series. Riley just gets my attention and doesn't let go. She faces so many hardships that I can't help but root for her.

I have to say, the ending was shocking. And the scene close to the ending. You'll know the two I speak of if you read it. It makes me kick myself for not waiting for the third book to be out because now I'm dying to get my hands on the next... which I have to wait for. *Insert crying scene here* But the build up for the next novel was brilliantly done and leaves all of us guessing as to what will happen next.
Normally, I'm not a fan of cliffhangers. Mostly, I hate them. But this one left me on edge and eager for more without wanting to toss my book in the fireplace.

I love that so much happens in this book but nothing feels like it's too much or out of place. Things just don't get better for Riley and I'm glad to see unsuspected support for her from people I never would have thought would give it and for the vulnerable side we get a peek at.

I definitely recommend this series. It kicks butt and doesn't let up at all!

I have a love-hate-relationship with cliffhangers. I hate them when the next book in the series is still sooooo far away, but I love them since they make a book/series really special. :D

I have Soul Thief sitting on my shelf at the moment and after reading your review I'm actually looking forward to it even more. Despite the cliffhanger. ;)

Thanks for sharing. Great review!

I didn't even know this was book 2 in a series! I though it was book 1! I'm really intrigued by it though it sounds great. I'll have to take a look at book 1 on GR! :)
