Amazing! I couldn't put it down!
Jana Oliver certainly didn't disappoint in the second book of this wonderful series! This book is a must read and just as good as the first. It will have on the edge of your seat and wanting it to never end!

Another masterpiece! Jana Oliver's writing style is simply enchanting. The story draws you in and is relentless in its pursuit to keep you enthralled all the way to the very last word..
When I picked up Soul Thief I had a very hard time having to put it down (I managed to suffer through that) and was able to read the book in about 3 days.Which isn't bad considering I work 40+ hours a week, attend college, and have a family/home to take care of.
SPOILER ALERT FROM BOOK 1: When we last read of Atlanta in The Demon Trapper's Daugher, Book 1 (See review HERE), a meeting of the Trapper's Guild had just gotten underway when the reanimate corpse of Paul Blackthorne, Riley's father, busted in to the Tabernacle to warn them of danger. They were complete overrun by demons and many lives were lost and bodies injured, including Simon, Riley's boyfriend. In order to save Simon, Riley made a "deal" with one of the angels.
Now, we learn that the city has decided to allow hunters from the Vatican come in and clean up what they feel the Trappers are unable to do. Riley is still being pursued by debt collectors who want her father's reanimated corpse in trade for the money owed. She is also being watched/protected by Ori, who wants nothing else but to slay the Grade 5 demon that killed Paul Blackthorne and attempted to extinguish Riley life at the Tabernacle massacre.except to maybe get Riley into his bed too-but Ori, as hot as he is, has his own agenda, secrets, and a boss that, when revealed, will certainly cause turmoil within you.
Through this, Riley and Simon start having issues when "someone" keeps insinuating to Simon that Riley sold her soul to the Devil and is now working on the wrong side of the game. Riley is still trying to find her father and the necro that raised him. And then there's Beck.awesome, sweet, hotter than Hades, Beck. We finally get to see the softer side of Beck; the Beck that would do anything for hot-headed Riley-and not just because he promised Paul.there are some embers burning within him and I hope we get to explore them in Book 3.

Ahh this series is cruel!
I cant wait to read the others. I think this series is original and refreshing. But its so cruel, i feel so bad for Riley and a liitle for Beck. Spoiler i wanted the Ori+Riley hookup even though i want her to end up with Beck. I thought it would go just right until he had to leave. I really thought he was a good guy. I was like yes, yes, yes when they were together. And then i was like why, why, why, and no, no, no. I was completely torn up by what happened so i feel so heartbroken for Riley. Its definentley a suprise/shocker (at least to me) for how it turned out.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

world of the Demon Trappers was fresh, new, vibrant and exciting in
Forsaken and fell a little flat in Forbidden. I was also hoping to see
some improvement in the relationship between Riley and Beck, but instead
we get another possible love interest. Like a love triangle isn’t enough
already. In this sequel, Riley is hunting down her Dad’s reanimted
corpse while trying to deal with a Level Five demon stalking her, and
the fact all of Hell’s minions seem to know her name. The Vatican
decides the Trappers Guild can’t deal with this mayhem anymore, and they
call in the big shots, the Demon Hunters, to try and solve the mess.
Unfortunately, those Demon Hunters are even more ill-equipped than the
trappers to stop the chaos brewing in Atlanta. While the stakes are
definitely higher than in Forsaken, I felt some of the scenes in this
book weren’t always as strong as in the first book. A lot of things were
happening at once, that left me at times confused and at times gave me
trouble focusing. On the other hand, the characters are more developed
then they were in the first installment. Especially Riley seems to have
done a bit of growing up, from a brat to a girl who can stand her ground
but doesn’t act like a spoiled teenager anymore. Beck turned from one
of my least favorite fiction love interests ever into one I could live
with. I’m not entirely fond of him yet, but he’s changed for the better
in this book. It’s like he’s gotten over his rage, anger and hurt and
toughened up. I liked that change in him, and how it influenced the
dynamics between him and Riley. Both characters are definitely growing
and evolving, and I can’t wait to see where they’ll end up. My only pet
peeve with this book, as I already mentioned, is that things are
happening, but I wasn’t drawn in enough to fully register everything. It
seemed like there was a giant gap between me, as the reader, and the
characters and events unfolding. If you liked Forsaken, don’t miss out
on Forbidden. Jana Oliver has created an original, action-filled world
with demons and angels, Holy Water, love triangles and intriguing characters.

Great series with a lot of potential!
Mind you, I know nothing about Jana Oliver but between her first book and this one, I cannot wait to see what is coming up! After reading the first chapter teaser I could not wait for the series to come out. Jana is very descriptive in her accounts of demons and angels and the roll they now play in earth's future society.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

How can I express how much this book filled me with great happiness? It gave me so many more answer yet it gave me so much more to look forward to!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
What I liked most about this book is the plot line. Paced perfectly, the reader follows Riley as it picks up right where it left on, in the first book The Demon Trappers Daughter. I loved watching the plot unfold top more secrets, fights and Riley fighting for her place in the world. It's great reading about Riley as she begins to piece together her father's murder.
I loved watching Riley grow up. Faced with some uncompromisable positions, Riley must fight. Fight for a love that has burns for her for years, fight for her positions as a demon trapper, and fight for her friends. At times, I felt exhausted for Riley. But I am glad that she is not only stubborn, but refused to back down.
What got me about this book is the love interest. It is so complicated yet simple. I can see it flashing before my eyes, but other obstacles get in the way. I loved that this love is enduring yet passionate. I adored that Ms. Oliver gave the reader such a great description of what is happening. I love being put right into the story, and going along with the characters as they go through their journey.
Soul Thief is what the title is. A thief taking things left and right from Riley. Giving her no chance but to fight for what is hers.Written darkly passionate, Ms. Oliver once again gave me a story that not only gripped the readers, but gave them so much more than expected. *implied sex/cursing*
