GoodReads Summary: Riley Blackthorne just needs a chance to prove herself – and that’s exactly what the demons are counting on…Thoughts:
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?

- Atlanta 2018. The economy has collapsed and demons rules the streets. Forsaken dives straight into action and grabs you attention right away.
- Told from the POV of Beck and Riley. I immediately liked Riley - she's selfless, determined and head-strong. Definitely on my list of favourite YA heroines. Beck is The book alternates between Beck and Riley's POV, which I really liked. We get to see past Beck's tough exterior, and learn that really, he is a bit of a softie. I loved how much he cared about Riley, it was really heartwarming.
- Great mix of chracters.
- Touch of romance.
