Forsaken by Jana Oliver
January 7th 2011 by Macmillan Children’s Books
Riley has always wanted to be a Demon Trapper like her father, and she’s already following in his footsteps as one of the best. But it’s tough being the only girl in an all-guy world, especially when three of those guys start making her life more complicated: Simon, the angelic apprentice who has heaven on his side; Beck, the tough trapper who thinks he’s God’s gift, and Ori, the strikingly sexy stranger who keeps turning up to save her ass.
One thing’s for sure – if she doesn’t keep her wits about her there’ll be hell to pay…
I love the sound of this book. For starters, I think the heroine is going to be pretty damn kick-ass. It could be that I am still suffering from epic fail that was Hush, Hush (I swear to God, that book was written in the 60s) and am in desperate need of a girl who juggles romances and kills things. *sighs*
Anyhow, wish we had a few more details about this book. I mean, there’s obviously some sort of angel connection – what with the wings on the cover and the “angelic” apprentice. But, reading even further into the cover, perhaps a boarding school may be involved? *ponders*
