Preview: Soul Theif by Jana Oliver

Riley Blackthorne is beginning to learn that there are worse things than death by demon. And love is just one of them…

Seventeen-year-old Riley has about had it up to here. After the devastating battle at the Tabernacle, trappers are dead and injured, her boyfriend Simon is gravely injured, and now her beloved late father’s been illegally poached from his grave by a very powerful necromancer. As if that’s not enough, there's Ori, one sizzling hot freelance demon hunter who’s made himself Riley’s unofficial body guard, and Beck, a super over-protective “friend” who acts more like a grouchy granddad.  With all the hassles, Riley’s almost ready to leave Atlanta altogether.

But as Atlanta’s demon count increases, the Vatican finally sends its own Demon Hunters to take care of the city’s “little” problem, and pandemonium breaks loose. Only Riley knows that she might be the center of Hell’s attention: an extremely powerful Grade 5 demon is stalking her, and her luck can't last forever…

At the end of The Demon Trapper's Daughter, Jana Oliver included the first chapters of the second novel in the series Soul Theif, although it didn't have a title when I last checked. And after having read The Demon Trapper's Daughter, I can't wait to read the sequel. Hopefully, this book will be better than the prequel, and it will have Riley as more of a grown-up rather than a whiny and emotional teen. I also hope to see more of the goings on around Riley, like the witches and necromancers, rather than all demon trappers.
