Series: The Demon Trappers
In the fourth Demon Trappers novel, Riley faces the final battle for humanity and Beck's heart—and Hell is the least of her problems
Now that Riley’s managed to (just barely) fend off Armageddon, everything’s changed. Well . . . most things. After their passionate kiss before the big battle in the cemetery, Beck is back to treating her like a little girl, as if nothing ever happened. While she’d love to just tell him off and move on, Riley vowed to take care of Beck the way he’s taken care of her since her father’s death—but she’s about to get a whole lot more than she bargained for. When she’s commissioned to go with Beck to his hometown and help him care for his dying mother, they stumble too close to a dark and murderous secret, one that Beck fears will drive Riley away from him forever. As chaos breaks loose, Riley may be Beck's only hope for redemption . . . and survival.
Meanwhile, up in Atlanta, it’s quickly becoming clear that Heaven may have won a battle, but the war is far from over. Riley and Beck face a stormy future, as Lucifer's ex-right-hand-man, Sartael, proves himself to be more resilient than anyone thought. He has Atlanta in his grip and is about to begin a brutal war with the prince of Hell. As the seconds tick down toward a final confrontation, it's up to Riley and the man she loves to finally defeat their old enemy, or lose everything they've fought for.
This is it, the final book in the series and I was not disappointed in the least because everything ended just the way it should have. Sure there could be more going on but that's for the characters to experience on their own as they continue to grow up and grow together like the tight knit family that they are. This was a perfect ending to a really great series.
We are back with Riley and Beck, they are back and forth with their feelings for each other even though they are so obviously meant to be together. The very beginning of the book Beck has to go back to Georgia as his mother is about to pass away and he needs to take care of her things. Riley is asked to go with him. During this little trip Riley learns new things about Beck and she doesn't care because she cares about him unconditionally. An old mystery bears it's ugly head but the truth will set everyone free. Before Riley is sent back to Atlanta she finally reveals to Beck how she really feels so now the ball is in his court.
While they were in Georgia many things have been happening in Atlanta and the war is ready to begin again. Ori is secretly (not really secretly) training Riley during the night on how to kill demons, especially the higher up ones. He is preparing her for a battle that she's right in the middle of. This time it isn't a battle between good but more of a battle between the bad vs bad, some lesser evil than the other. Hell is in turmoil and there is only one way to fix it, kill those who lead this tyranny.
During this great battle you see all the familiar faces throughout the series and you rejoice in them the feeling and the victory they have over this battle. There are very distinct and indistinct endings for each character and I don't really want to say what they are cause that would ruin the ending but everyone got what they deserved and maybe even a little more.
Jana Oliver did a fabulous job on this series, it held my attention the entire time and sometimes that's hard with series but it did. Thanks for a great adventure and can't wait to see what you come up with next. Love all the covers they are all so cohesive.
