Demon Trapper Riley Blackthorne just needs a chance to prove herself—and that’s exactly what Lucifer is counting on…Review:
It’s the year 2018, and with human society seriously disrupted by the economic upheavals of the previous decade, Lucifer has increased the number of demons in all major cities. Atlanta is no exception. Fortunately, humans are protected by Demon Trappers, who work to keep homes and streets safe from the things that go bump in the night. Seventeen-year-old Riley, only daughter of legendary Demon Trapper Paul Blackthorne, has always dreamed of following in her father’s footsteps. When she’s not keeping up with her homework or trying to manage her growing attraction to fellow Trapper apprentice, Simon, Riley’s out saving citizens from Grade One Hellspawn. Business as usual, really, for a demon-trapping teen. When a Grade Five Geo-Fiend crashes Riley’s routine assignment at a library, jeopardizing her life and her chosen livelihood, she realizes that she’s caught in the middle of a battle between Heaven and Hell.
The Demon Trapper's Daughter is about Riley, a teenager who wants to become a successful trapper like her dad. She becomes her dads apprentice but something in along the way makes Riley's life miserable and complicated.
I finished this book slower than expected but it didn't lack the adventure and the intensity that I was anticipating for this book. The characters were amazing although there were characters that irked and irritated me (Hello Harper!) but that aspect made the book as enjoyable as it is. Another thing that I loved about this story is that the romance - it wasn't as cheesy as most ya stories are but too many love angles for my flavor.
What I didn't like about this book was the cliffhanger ending and the inconsistencies of some scenario and character. It bugged me but not enough to make me stop reading the story. Definitely interested in learning what will happen to Riley on the next books. Recommended!
