Reviewing a last book in the series is never easy or especially fun. Fortunately for me, Jana Oliver gave me a lot to write about, all of it good.
She may have given up her soul to avoid the Armageddon, but her heart still knows where it stands. There are human enemies to defeat and demons to destroy. Once again Oliver entertains with the wide variety of creatures she's created: from Pyro-Fiends and Klepto-Fiends to Arch-Fiends and fallen angels. Although Oliver always experimented with language, she took it a step further in Foretold.
His pronunciation was changing depending on his mood, location and company. His grammar would deteriorate every time he was under stress, which was most easily noticeable in his pronunciation of pronouns.
I need to say a few words about Riley Blackthorne as well. It is almost sad that the series is ending now that Oliver finally found solid ground to stand on with her. It says on the cover that this is a book for older audience and I tend to agree, though I generally dislike such limitations.
Sometimes sex is just sex and Jana Oliver never shied away from it. One of her characters is a twenty-something-year-old war veteran after all, and not one that is happy with sitting alone in his apartment, watching game shows and drinking orange juice.
The Demon Trappers series is balancing a fine line between YA and adult urban fantasy, which worked perfectly for me, and hopefully it will for those of you who have yet to give it a chance.

Five stars for second half.
Let me start off by saying I was looking forward to this book for one reason and one reason only - Denver Beck. But I have to say, it was pretty much everything else that won me over at the end.
I was a bit disappointed with the first half of the book. I know this book was supposed to be about Beck, and it was meant to give us insight on his troubled past, and I understand that it explained why he is the way he is. BUT for some reason, I j Three stars for first half. I can't really say, "He's not the same guy," because duh, obviously, he's not, but I was expecting this insight would just make me say "awww" and totally melt for him. But it didn't. I felt the first half was a bit out-of-place in this series.
The whole series was full of action and drama as Riley and Beck discovered who they were as find their place in the demon trapping business in a complicated world of angel politics. But the first half took us to the country with depressing parent issues and a murder mystery. Yes, in the end, it did have a stretched tie-in to the paranormal world, but like I said, it's out of place. Perhaps this would have been better if it had been written as a prequel. I know the story would be a bit different, and it won't be about Beck having closure.
But still, I think I would have enjoyed it more if all his history was packaged and presented differently, while the last book focused more on the rest of it. It started getting really good after Beck had what would be as much closure as he would have when he tearily spoke those words to his mother and as everyone headed back to Atlanta.
The the story continued building to pure awesomeness. I can't even put into words what an amazing job Oliver did with ending this series.
The second half had everything that the first half lacked that I loved so much about the whole series - kick-ass action battling demons, an intriguing complex world of angel politics though it took me a while to remember all the details that totally sucks you in, the involvement of the Grand Masters and others in demon trapping, the uncertainty that leaves you guessing what people's true intentions are and what side they were actually on, and of course, that chemistry between not only Riley and Beck but that connection with all the other characters that are involved in their lives.
I think the best written character in this book was Ori. First of all, Beck had me from Chapter 2 of Book 1, and I never strayed from him throughout the whole series. I never trusted Ori when he innocently came into the picture, and I did not swoon over him while everyone was lost by his charming personality.
However, I did always believe that he had feelings for Riley, which made him make some of the decisions he did. It really tied everything about his whole presence in this series together. Too often these days, authors write a book that is supposed to be a stand-alone, somehow manage to make it a series, stretch it out where it can't go any further and produce a disappointing flop at the end.
The first half of this book didn't do it for me, but the second half was everything but that. This book had a lot of character development on already strongly built characters, a plot that managed to stay enact and intriguing throughout the whole series, and the best part, and end that not only ties everything together but comes full circle. I can't write this part without spoiling the book, but the memory of Paul Blackthorne, the scene in hell, the gargoyle, the Grand Master offer, even Riley's library scene - everything was packaged neatly from the first page of the first book.
An incredible job on Oliver's part, and I am SO sad to see an end to such a great series. View all 60 comments. Apr 04, Caity rated it liked it Shelves: i-had-higher-expectations , so-sweet. Written a long tome ago in hopes that the book would be good: Theory time. Ok so you know how Beck calls Riley Princess?
What if her favor for Lucifer is to become the Princess of Hell? Or you know, not. Or like Second in Command type thing. I mean Ori's position is open isn't it? I doubt that it deserves better than a 1 star.
The book is actually two different stories crudely glued together with Elmers's. The firs Written a long tome ago in hopes that the book would be good: Theory time.
The first part is my favorite. It does not fit at all into the series but it was the most interesting.

Foretold (Demon Trappers Series #4)
By Jana Oliver. Now that Riley's managed to just barely fend off Armageddon, everything's changed. After their passionate kiss before the big battle in the cemetery, Beck is back to treating her like a little girl, as if nothing ever happened. While she'd love to just tell him off and move on, Riley vowed to take care of Beck the way he's taken care of her since her father's death—but she's about to get a whole lot more than she bargained for. When she's commissioned to go with Beck to his hometown and help him care for his dying mother, they stumble too close to a dark and murderous secret, one that Beck fears will drive Riley away from him forever. As chaos breaks loose, Riley may be Beck's only hope for redemption. Meanwhile, up in Atlanta, it's quickly becoming clear that Heaven may have won a battle, but the war is far from over.
