Riley Blackthorne. Kicking hell’s ass one demon at a time.
Riley has made a bargain with Heaven, and now they've come to collect.
Lucifer's finest are ruling the streets and it seems that Armageddon might be even closer than Riley imagined. But with her soul and her heart in play it's all she can do to keep herself alive, let alone save the world. Riley's not afraid of kicking some major demon butt, but when it comes to a battle between Heaven and Hell, she might need a little help . . .

Every time I finish a book in this series, you can be absolutely sure to find me in a complete ecstatic state and with a really urgent need to read the next one! Now, I definitely think this third book is the best instalment so far and, of course, the fact that I’m in love with Beck is another story . . . I mean, it all started as usual, a male character is introduced, you think he’s cool, then you start liking him (a lot) and with the second book you’re dreaming about him. Then the third book comes and you realize this character is so beautifully Beck that you have to hug him and never let go of him! Jana Oliver has this power of making me feel like a teenager in love, in my opinion she really has created one of the best male characters in a YA series!

The most beautiful part to read was Riley and Beck relationship development. The constant tension and frustration that devours the two of them gives you the right push to keep reading more and more until you find what everyone (characters included) is hoping for. You desperately need those two to be together, they have to, right? I will never be tired to say that their dialogues are amazingly written and when they have a conversation, it doesn’t matter if they’re arguing or simply humouring each other, they always finish doing a declaration of love, and the passion they put in their words is touching and involving.

I love the whole story, the action is amazing as much as the unexpected Good and Evil aspects . . . Riley made mistakes, but would you be so sure you wouldn’t have done some of them as well? And is Evil JUST Evil, and Good SO Good? I’m so addicted to The Demon Trappers series that I can’t imagine I have to say goodbye soon, but at the same time I can’t wait for that magic fourth book to be in my hands!
