The Demon Trapper's Daughter Review


The Demon Trapper's Daughter by Jana Oliver

The Demon Trapper's Daughter is a fantastic read. Loaded with excitement and the unexpected, Jana filled this read with everything you need to get your daily-dose of a kick-ass heroine.

May Contain Spoilers....



The Demon Trapper's Daughter follows the story of Riley Blackthorne, A Demon Trapper Apprentice following in the footsteps of her Father. The book takes place in the year 2018, and a lot has changed. Demons are everywhere; ranging from the smallest and least dangerous but trickest Grade-Ones to the most dangerous and vengeful Grade-Fives.
Riley being in training is only suppose to deal with Grade-One hellspawn, but with Lucifer increasing his number of Demons invading the cities sometimes what your suppose to take on and what your forced to take on are two diffrent things.
The only thing standing between the demons and the humans of the world are the trappers, and with the invading demons it literally pays to be a trapper...if you can handle it.
Riley gets called to capture a grade-one demon at a library but when she gets attacked by a grade five geo-fiend all she can do is try to not get killed. with the destruction done to the library on her routine assignment she then has to face the rath of the guild; who don't really need another reason to try and kick her off the team, with Riley being the only girl trapper, a botched assignment is just more ammunition to end her career.
The guild tries to blame her for not even being able to capture a simple grade one, but when a youtube video proves that a grade five was the culprit to all the damage done all hell brakes loose at the realization that demons are now working together.
When her father goes out on a hunt for a grade four with his fellow trapper Beck little do they know that they're about to get ambused by the grade five that attacked Riley in the library. Try as the might they can't capture the fiends at the same time as trying to defend themselves from a furious elemental attack, and Beck is helpless to save Paul Blackthorne.
Devestated by his death, Beck must return to Riley to tell her about her fathers murder. Riley soon realizes that his death is the first of many dangerous events in her future. One of the biggest problems being that now that her father is dead, she has to still defend his body from those who wish to steal it for their own means...the necromancers. Since her father's body isn't damaged he would be a good candidate but Riley refuses to have her father summoned so she must stand vigil over his grave until the first full moon to protect him, a task that proves to be more difficult than she expected. Meanwhile Riley has to deal with the guild, Beck, trying to find the fiend that killed her father and the fact that the Demons of all grades know her by name; something Beck thinks is a very bad thing. Riley's life is going to change in a very dramatic way.

Riley's world comes crashing down around her and she must do everything she can to protect those around her and seek revenge for her father'death.

The Demon Trapper's daughter has everything you could ask for in a book; demons, a killer heroine, drama, romance, and an ending that will leave you begging for more. This book is a nail-biter from beginning to end and the second book can't come fast enough!

Enjoy!
