From Goodreads: 

Demon Trapper Riley Blackthorne just needs a chance to prove herself—and that’s exactly what Lucifer is counting on…

It’s the year 2018, and with human society seriously disrupted by the economic upheavals of the previous decade, Lucifer has increased the number of demons in all major cities. Atlanta is no exception. Fortunately, humans are protected by Demon Trappers, who work to keep homes and streets safe from the things that go bump in the night. Seventeen-year-old Riley, only daughter of legendary Demon Trapper Paul Blackthorne, has always dreamed of following in her father’s footsteps. When she’s not keeping up with her homework or trying to manage her growing attraction to fellow Trapper apprentice, Simon, Riley’s out saving citizens from Grade One Hellspawn. Business as usual, really, for a demon-trapping teen. When a Grade Five Geo-Fiend crashes Riley’s routine assignment at a library, jeopardizing her life and her chosen livelihood, she realizes that she’s caught in the middle of a battle between Heaven and Hell.

I read this book last week over the span of two days. Jana was a friend and guest speaker of my marketing professor and after coming to speak to our class about publishing, my interest was piqued for this series.

The book held a good balance of poignancy, romance, and plot points to keep propelling the reader towards the end. I actually appreciated that Jana did not beat us over the head with building a romance. The romance built up slowly, taking a passenger seat to the overall plot.

I guarantee once you pick up the first book in this series you’ll be hooked. You just have to know what happens next.
