“A legendary Demon Trapper, Riley Blackthorne frequentlybattles with Hell’s minions. So when she travels to Scotland to meet up with her hunky boyfriend, and celebrate her eighteenth birthday, she’s thrilled at the chance to leave Atlanta and its troubles behind.
Denver Beck, who has been studying for months to become a Grand Master – a rare and highly dangerous job — is just as eager to see his girl. He’s anticipating a romantic reunion, keen to take their relationship to the next level.
But Riley’s twisted history with Hell has garnered unwelcome interest by people willing to use her for their own purposes. Trouble is brewing in the land of the heather, the kind that will drive a wedge between her and Beck, and prove the ultimate test of their love . . . and their survival skills.”
This has been one of my absolutely favorite YA urban fantasy series. I really enjoyed going back to revisit this world. I didn’t realize a 5th book had been released in this series and am so excited to pick that up as well. I love these characters and this demon infested world!
This is a great novella for fans of the series. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend as an intro to the series since there is a lot of backstory for these characters that you don’t see in this novella. However, it should read okay as a stand alone.
I loved how this story showed our characters moving on. Riley is working on training apprentices and Beck is studying to become a Grand Master. Their reunion is sweet and amazing and plagued with all the complications that plague Demon Trappers.
Oliver does an amazing job all around with this story (and the whole series). The action scenes are breathtaking, the characters intriguing, and the world is well developed and engaging. The writing flows beautifully and the dialogue is snappy and fun. This was such a fun and easy story to read.
Overall I adored this addition to the Demon Trappers series. I would recommend this whole series to urban fantasy fans. I was beyond ecstatic to hear that a fifth book, Mind Games, came out in this series…last year…HOW DID I MISS THAT! Anyway, highly recommend to urban fantasy fans I love it!
