Welcome to our blog!
Amy and Jennifer ARE Seduced by Books. We’re both in our 30’s, moms, close friends, work together, and share many of the same interests including our love of reading. Amy grew up in Maryland and has been obsessed with Vampires for as long as she can remember. Jenn grew up in Florida and loves the furry, the fey, and the fangs, in that order. Currently we are both in Orlando, FL. When we can be pulled away from books, Amy loves to bake and Jenn loves to take pictures and scrap.
We decided to create a place where we could direct friends, and acquaintances for, book suggestions/recommendations (Jenn’s been known to talk to strangers on the train while traveling in NYC). Once we started out with a simple page, we evolved from there. Now we are sharing our book reviews, fun comments, recipes, and giveaways. We try to give reviews on new releases, pre-releases, and oldies but goodies that we read, or are reading. We’re going to be adding author interviews for established and up and coming authors soon.

The Demon Trappers Daughter by Jana Oliver

The Demon Trapper's Daughter: A Demon Trapper Novel (Demon Trapper Novels)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?(courtesy of Amazon)

HOLY WOW!!! Young Adult books need a better "classification"  because they just keep getting better and better.  

The "Atlanta" Jana Oliver created here is a great twist to the story.  Riley is a passionate young girl.  I was instantly enthralled with her character.  Oliver manages to give you an emotionally read while keeping the action and mystery coming.  She's lumped a few different 'otherworld' traits into one book.  Necromancers, Demons, and hunters oh my!  

Little young adult romance keeps your heart warm as this girl goes through life chaos.  But, she battles it all!  Looking forward to the rest of this series. 

Having a really hard time assigning a rating - I think 3 slices with a couple of extra bites!!! I'm giving it the 4...


  1. Great review! This is on my TBR pile and I hope to tackle it this week!

  2. Thanks for the wonderful review! I'm so happy you enjoyed the story. Riley has a lot to learn (and it'll all be the hard way, of course) but she's fierce and I really like writing a character like that.

  3. Thanks so much for stopping by!!!! I LOVE Riley...OOOH and BECK!!! I'm looking forward to Soul Thief!
