I fell in love with Riley's world in the first book of this series, The Demon Trapper's Daughter. In this third installment, we find Riley literally stuck between Heaven and Hell's angels and she has to perform a favor for each side.

I really enjoy the unique world that Jana Oliver has created. Not only is there the battle between good and evil, but it's not as black and white as some think. I think her take on demons, Hell, and Heaven is very interesting and makes for a fun read.

I think Riley is a unique character. She has lost her father, but now finds himself reanimated, meaning he is back from the dead, but far from being alive. He is under the control of whomever purchases him and Riley can't do anything about it. She is still struggling with bills that need to be paid, an interesting love life, and oh yeah, that above mentioned favors she has to complete for Heaven and Hell.

I adore Beck's character. I have a soft spot for boys who are lost and need redeeming. Beck was Riley's father's trapping partner and looks after Riley now that her father is gone. Riley has also had a huge crush on him for years, but Beck treats her like a little kid (she is only 17 after all and he is 22). However, you can tell that Beck cares for Riley, even though he makes some mistakes and ends up hurting her feelings sometimes. I really like where Jana Oliver takes their relationship and with every book she has left me begging for more interaction between the two.

I was a bit disappointed with the ending to this book but only because it wasn't a true ending! That leads me to believe there will be a 4th book (there better be!) and that only means I'll have to wait longer for a true end to this story. If you enjoyed the first two books in the series, you'll enjoy this one as well. If you haven't read the series yet, but you want a unique take on the paranormal, give the series a try!
