❝ Jana Oliver - Foretold Review ❞


Can't believe this is the last book


Just finish reading it today ..
Let me tell you AMAZING......just what I needed but I'm pretty sad that it the final book in the Series, Jana Oliver writing keeps you wanting more.

I don't want to give anything way but let me tell you "YOU HAVE TO READ IT" I had this book since it came out but was to busy to read it (I blame WATTPAD) now i regret not reading it early ...

Foretold is the fourth and final book in The Demon Trappers series, and a very impressive conclusion at that. Having been reassured by Jana Oliver that this installment would be free of any messy endings, I just knew Foretold and I would get along nicely. And that, we did.

This book is, in my eyes, Beck’s book. The Southern Backwoods Boy becomes the star of this installment as the reader gets a look – a very deep and lingering look – into his not-so-spotless past. Without sounding a little Beck-...more

Reviewing a last book in the series is never easy or especially fun. In fact, it’s one of my least favorite things to do, vacuuming and peeling onions included. Fortunately for me, Jana Oliver gave me a lot to write about, all of it good.

Riley Blackthorne is finally sure that she loves her father’s protégé and her friend...more

Three stars for first half. 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 jus...more

what i love about Demon Trappers:
Beck. Beck. Beck. Beck. Beck.
Beck! romance! swooooon.
FINALLY.
Miranda
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? Foreshadowing! Or you know, not.
Or like Second in Command type thing. I mean Ori's position is open isn't it?

Review:

First I want to say that the 3 star rating is VERY generous. 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...more

Amazing is the only word that comes close to how I feel about this book! If you loves this series I strongly you get it from Amazon UK and don't wait for the American release in December. It's already out in the UK and its definitely worth the shipping cost!
Sarah
It is always hard to say goodbye to a series, particularly if it's one of your favourites. I have been crazy about Jana Oliver's Demon Trappers series ever since I read the first book and with each instalment I have come to love the characters and the world she has created more and more. So I was both excited and terrified to pick up the last book Foretold. Excited to spend more time with Riley and my favourite YA hottie Beck but terrified that I wouldn't like the way things ended and that the b...more
Celeste
Awesome or nothing.

The last 3 words of the book.

The last 3 words of the series.

And in the end... it was awesome.


I don't know what I was thinking the ending was going to be like for this series, all I knew was that I was really excited to find out. And I have to say, I think the way Jana Oliver ended it was spot-on awesome.

Everyone's been wondering about Beck's past and it played a major role in the plot development of this story. His interactions with his mother, the memories of this childho...more

Ahhhhhhhhhhh! Having a bit of a mixed emotion going on here...
The sat book what actual is going on?! I'm going to have to make this book last so that I don't finish it too quickly!
I honestly can't wait to see how this works out now that Riley and Beck are finally and I say FINALLY together!

I adore this cover! I love love love the colours. I like it because this isn't just about actual hell demons it's about Becks inner demons and his past so I like how the colour scheme has changed as the stor...more

A fantastic final book in the series. And even if it all fell into place a little too easy in the end, that's the way I like it. I'm all for the HEA :)
Renu
The fourth and final book in The Demon Trappers series was a bittersweet read. On one hand I was happy with how the series ended, but on the other I was sad to leave the characters and world behind.

Foretold is split into two halves. The first half is focused on Beck's past, we finally get a look into his harsh upbringing and learn what exactly it is that's been holding him back. I've been a fan of Beck since book 1, because despite all the hardships he faced as a child he's managed to accomplish...more
Isamlq
What an awesome ending! Likely my favorite in the whole series and that’s not just because we get to know more about Beck (though admittedly, that does factor in a whole lot). My loving this boils down to all of them having changed from MC’s like Riley and Beck, down to the supporting cast that includes a pair of exes.

Riley has transformed from whiney moany little girl to this young woman who faces stuff head on. Peter showed more to the whole boy best friend angle instead of going down the ave...more

HMMMMMMMMMmmmmm. Tough one to review, some things I liked and loved some things I didn't.

I enjoyed exploring Becks past, but for some reason he didn't feel the same to me in this book. Don't get me wrong, I love my "backwood's boy", I just didn't connect with him like I have in the other books. He didn't have as much of his attitude in this book. (IMO)

Ori actually ended up being my biggest surprise. I was heart broken for him. I would love to see a spin off of him finding the light he so desper...more

The series...is over!! *sniffs* I want to go to university and study to be a demon trapper, then go to the South, get an accent and marry Denver Beck :D

After stopping a war between two different factions of hell, Riley Blackthorne is back to trapping demons like normal. She still has her problems though - she has to find a new home when she gets a notice of eviction, she's trying to figure out why Beck is pushing her away after passionately kissing her and her ex-boyfriend/fallen angel, Ori, still owns her soul.
Beck has problems of his own - a dying mother who hates him and a reporter ex whose threatening to expose his sordid past. Bec...more

MY REVIEW
Aaaah Once again I love the cover. the determined look in Riley's eyes is so plain to see. Riley is prepared to kick butt whoever's and whatever's! The scene also depicts the swamp where some of the action in this book is based. The cover is great as it matches my other paperbacks. It's a rarity for me to hold onto books after i have read them, but, this is one set of books that will be remaining, in pride of place on my bookshelves for the far foreseeable future.
Now to the book, wow I...more
Jetches  (My Not So Vacant Shelf)
Oh I do love Beck. And I do love Riley. I’ve been waiting a long time for this novel. Not only is it the final in the series, but It’s also all about Riley and Beck, and the first half of the novel is all about Beck’s troubled past. Frig I loved reading about Beck. Throughout all the three previous books I wanted to know everything about this lovely Backwoods boy and especially after the last one and how it ended. But, thankfully I am happy that Riley is not the kind of girl who takes no for an...more

Please be aware that this is the fourth and final book in the series and the review may therefore contain spoilers for the previous books.

You are probably aware that I adore this series. From the very first book I was hooked Forsaken, Forbidden and Forgiven have all added to my love of Riley and Beck. This book concentrates on the relationship between Riley and Beck. The revelations and unfolding of the whole plot bring a wonderful completeness to the plot.

Beck’s past is revealed, uncovering the...more

2 stars, unfortunately, which is disappointing since I actually liked the other books. They weren’t perfect or amazingly gripping but they were . . . entertaining. I enjoyed reading them. This one, though, not so much.

First of all, while I appreciate that a Scottish character was put in, I want to make something clear. We don’t talk like that !!! Sure, we may occasionaly toss around words like "aye" or "ya ken" but NOT IN EVERY FRIKIN' SENTENCE. The way Stewart speaks is stereotypical and untru...more
Natalie
That was one hell of a book-quite literally.
This is the fourth and final book of the series and boy did it go out with a bang. As usual was exciting and action packed but also had very touching moments. We find all out about beck which I loved and riley has grown up a lot from the first books. This was one hell of a page turner I finished this within two days couldn't recommend this series enough.
Just go and check it out!!!!

***WARNING: IF YOU HAVE NOT READ ALL OF THE OTHER BOOKS IN THE DEMON TRAPPERS SERIES, THERE WILL BE SPOILERS IN THIS REVIEW. CONSIDER YOURSELF WARNED.


In the United States, Foretold by Jana Oliver comes out in December. However, in the UK, it came out August 2nd. Instead of waiting for the US release date, I decided to order the book all the way from England. That is how much I love The Demon Trappers series. And the last book did not disappoint...more

Before I start writing my review, I have to tell that I’m very sad that this is the last book in the Demon Trappers series. I love all the books and I believe that the ending was perfect!

The book is scattered unofficially in two parts. The first part is mostly about Beck and we learn more about him and his past. I have to admit that I was feeling sorry for him too many times but I was glad to see that everything worked out. Beck is one of my favorite characters because Jana Oliver has made excel...more

I felt the series has just started only to realize that it is the final book. Foretold is an amazing way to end an equally amazing series. And just like the other last books I read before, it’s another bittersweet moment for me. I wanted to cry when I turned the page and saw the acknowledgement page; it took me a while before it finally sinks in. It ended. This truly is the last book. Riley and Beck’s journey has now ended. Is it wrong if I wish there’s more? I’m greedy like that. ;)

I should've known I wouldn't be able to put the book down until I finished. Gosh. All the emotions. Review to come..

[Update]

If there was anything I had to say about this series as a whole, it’d have to be just how riveting and consistent each book has been. The last and final book of the series, Foretold, was no different. Except… there was something that truly stood out in this instalment – something different that made me appreciate the characters of Riley and Beck and the others I’ve felt so...more

I feel like my stomachs dropped and have a serious case of the end-of-series-blues. God i can;t believe it's over!!

I remember when i bought the first book forsaken. I was in WH Smiths i'd already chosen a bunch of books to buy when forsaken caught my eye. I flipped it open and read the blurb then the first past and thought i gotta have this! I seriously remember standing in the shop already gettin' a few side ways glances cos i'd been in there like a hour and after reading the first freakin' pa...more

The Demon Trappers has got to be one of the best young adult paranormal series out there and the word 'sad' isn't enough to describe how I felt when I was done with Foretold.

Before I go on with my review, you guys should know that I'm going to be biased because as I said, according to me, this series is seriously one of the best out there! The book started off a little slow, with the early chapters focusing mainly on Beck and his past, but watching his relationship with Riley grow totally made...more

“He slid his hand onto Riley's bare abdomen. "I got to thinkin' that a few years down the line, when yer older, what if that was our baby and I could feel it right here under my hand. Feel the life we'd created."
Riley's eyes moistened. "Girl or boy?"
"Doesn't matter. If it's a girl, we can name her after my gran. Her name was Emily Rose."
"Hmm...I like that. Maybe the boy could be Paul Arthur, like my dad."
"Yeah, that works. But that's all the way down the line, isn't it?" It might never come to pass.”
