Summary/ product description: “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?”
My Rating: ê ê ê 1/2
My Review:
Sadly, like most sequels, it was not as good as the first book. It was still good though. Funny, at least. There were some really awesome parts. The problem was that the text is kind of small on the pages, and it’s in 3rd person. I have a hard time getting in those kind of book especially when I’m tired. There was some more angel stuff, and demons, necromancers and witches, and trappers of course. There were just some slow parts that were hard for me to read.
For those of you who haven’t read this series, it’s some-what dystopian, but mainly paranormal. It’s set in 2018, and there demons reeking havoc around Atlanta, Georgia. The economy is worse than it is now, and school and jobs a different. And people trade. And holy water is a commodity. It’s really interesting. It makes Riley seem like she’s training to be a super hero who fights demons.
I’m still not to fond of Beck. He’s funny, but too cranky. And way too old for Riley. He’d be a better uncle than boyfriend. I like Riley’s nerdy friend better.
All I got to say without the spoilers, so read it.
Cover Art Review: It’s balanced and moves you eye around it, but not exciting. I do like the texture though. And the blue.
