Hi Amanda,
Sorry it took a while to answer this. Sometimes finding things on Goodreads is a lot light a scavenger hunt.

There will be one more book featuring Riley and Beck (VALIANT LIGHT -- Nov. 2016). We'll get to see exactly why these two have had such tough lives and why what they'd experienced matters. And there might even be a wedding, too. (Wink)

Hope that's good news!(less)

"Is there still time for hot chocolate?" Riley asked.
The-End-is-Nigh guy blinked. "Ah, maybe, I don’t know.”

“What did ya learn from this dumbass stunt?”
Here's where she was supposed to apologize, promise to be a good little girl and never do anything like this again.
Screw that.
Riley locked eyes with him. “I learned that the Holy Water better be fresh, that I need practice throwing the spheres, and that someone has to watch my back so asshats don't steal my demons.”

My heavens! I should check my comments more often. Sorry! RETRO DEMONOLOGY is Riley's first solo trapping experience so if you want to get a taste her life, that'd be a good place to start.

NocturnalRavings(Jodie) Is there going to be a US edition for the third Demon Trappers book? Hopefully with a matching cover,because my OCD likes matching covers. :D

Jana Oliver Kayleigh,

Thank you for reading my books!

I have read the Morganville Vampire series and I love them! They rock.

Jana


message 14: by Jana

Jana Oliver Mistress Moon -

Wow, I really need to check my emails out here more often. (sighs).

The third book is out (FORGIVEN), though the cover now matches the UK books instead of the US ones. I understand the OCD thing, really I do. ;-)

Jana
