"The days are growing darker for 17-year-old demon trapper Riley Blackthorne. With her father’s reanimated body back safely, Beck barely speaking to her because of her tryst with a hunky fallen angel and a deal freshly made with Lucifer, she has enough on her hands to last a normal teenage lifetime. Though she bargained with Heaven to save his life, her ex-boyfriend Simon has told the Vatican’s elite team of demon hunters that she’s working with Hell. So now she’s on the run, at the top of everyone’s most-wanted list.

But it’s becoming clear that this is bigger than either Riley or Beck, and rapidly getting out of control. Someone's tampering with Atlanta's Holy Water, and it’s on Riley to figure out who. On top of that, there’s something wrong with the demons; they’re working together—and refusing to die. The trappers and hunters are doing their best, but civilians are falling in harm’s way.

Caught between her bargain with Heaven and her promise to Lucifer, Riley fears the final war is coming—and it may be closer than anyone thinks..."

I loved this book! Really, I enjoyed that in this book there is finally some movement with the characters.
This is the third book of The Demon Trappers Daughters series. Like always, I feel in love with the story and have been following it. I am happy that there are some good changes!!!!

So, this storyline picks up where the last book left off and the reader is diving straight into more action. The is not much demon trapping ,but more running for you life action. I loved stepping right into Riley shoes and feeling every heat of the moment. Every heart-racing stand off, fight, and breathing taking moments!

For those who are following this series like I am, I am happy to report that it finally happen!
And then things went downhill again! UGH!

Still, nonetheless, I am very happy with the progress of the story. Loose ends are beginning to come together and the Riley has grown up so much. She is not naive, scared or helpess. She is strong, faithful in who she is and determine to fight till the end. The book did start off a  bit slow (lot of catching up on information from the last book) but I can assure you its takes off like a rocket!

Forgiven is amusing and unexpected. It give the reader the ultimate satisfaction with great scenes!
 A fantastically-crafted story, Forgiven takes you for a ride! 

I give it 5 BITES!

 Happy Reading!
