Review: Forgiven (The Demon Trappers #3) by Jana Oliver

Forgiven (The Demon Trappers, #3)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...

Oh Jana Oliver, why did you do this to me? If I enjoyed book one, and I loved book two, this was a bit of a disappointment for me and it's been one of my most waited for books this year.

I think I really struggled with the pacing with this book. There were some parts where I was just skim reading to get to something interesting which is a big sign that I'm really struggling, there were parts where I was gripped and then it just got boring again and the pacing was just anything but consistent.

I also felt that Riley lost a lot of her sass, I loved her before because she was so tough but the only times that came out in this one was with Beck. I get that she's been hurt by Simon and Ori, but her character really changed for the worse and I was not a fan, it improved by the end so hopefully she'll be back to my Riley in Foretold. Beck was the shining light in this book, I just adored him and his Taylor Swift obsession and pet rabbit, he's a softy inside of his hardnut, rough exterior. I also love the romance that started between Beck and Riley, the tension finally gets resolved and WOW I loved reading about that!

Overall, this was a bit of a disappointment since I thought so highly of books one and two, but I still will read book four just because I'd like more Riley and Beck.

Overall Rating: C-
