Forsaken by Jana Oliver

Publisher: Macmillan
Pages: 422

Seventeen-year-old Riley, the only daughter of legendary Demon Trapper, Paul Blackthorne, has always dreamed of following in her father's footsteps. The good news is, with human society seriously disrupted by economic upheaval and Lucifer increasing the number of demons in all major cities, Atlanta’s local Trappers’ Guild needs all the help they can get - even from a girl. When she’s not keeping up with her homework or trying to manage her growing crush on fellow apprentice, Simon, Riley’s out saving distressed citizens from foul-mouthed little devils – Grade One Hellspawn only, of course, per the strict rules of the Guild. Life’s about as normal as can be for the average demon-trapping teen.  

I really enjoyed reading Forsaken! I loved reading about the futuristic, dystopian world that this book was set in. My favourite character was Riley, because of her determination to be as good at Demon Trapping as her father, despite all the disapproving, derogatory remarks that the other, older Demon Trappers have directed at her. I really like the cover of Forsaken, as the bright fire along the bottom of the book together will the harsh black at the top, give the cover the same dark, dangerous feel that is weaved into the story within.
