Overview

"The Demon Trapper's Daughter" is the first novel in Jana Oliver's Demon Trappers a spellbinding young adult fantasy series. Riley Blackthorne just needs a chance to prove herself and that's exactly what the demons are counting on

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.

But then a Grade Five Geo-Fiend crashes Riley's routine assignment at a library, jeopardizing her life and her chosen livelihood. And, as if that wasn't bad enough, sudden tragedy strikes the Trappers' Guild, spinning Riley down a more dangerous path than she ever could have imagined. As her whole world crashes down around her, who can Riley trust with her heart and her life?"

The eternal war between good and evil finds a new battlefront in this successful urban fantasy, as Oliver (the Time Rovers series for adults), in her YA debut, spins the action-packed story of a young woman following in her father's footsteps. In the economically shattered Atlanta of 2018, everyone struggles to make ends meet, but the constant depredations of demons upon humans means there's always work for those daring enough to capture them. Unfortunately, when Riley Blackthorne loses her father to a particularly dangerous demon, she's forced to pick up where her father left off, despite still being an apprentice. But something big is brewing among the demons: they know her name, and they're actively hunting her. Despite a new master who hates her, a friendly rivalry with another demon trapper, the threat of her father's corpse being reanimated by necromancers, and the possibility of a full-on demon incursion, Riley is determined to prove her worth as a trapper, or die trying. With a strong female heroine, a fascinating setting, and a complex, thrill-soaked story, this series is off to a strong start. Ages 12–up. (Feb.)
