Eyecatcher: The Demon Trapper's Daughter by Jana Oliver
Here's another book from another fabulous author that I met at Barbara Vey's Reader Appreciation Luncheon.
The Demon Trapper's Daughter
by Jana Oliver
St. Martins Griffin
Release Date: February 1, 2011
from the author's site:
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.
why it caught my eye:
I believe this book was originally recommended to me on Amazon, so when I saw Jana at the Barbara Vey event, I thought, "Hey, I recognize this book. It's on my list." It's always nice how that works out. :) So I made sure to pick up a copy and get it signed. Now to find the time to read for fun again. lol How long until my semester's over?
