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)

Pluscarden Abbey

Scotland


If someone had told Denver Beck that a poor boy from South Georgia would spend a full week hanging with Benedictine monks at an abbey in northern Scotland, he’d have told them they were drunk or stoned. Or both. Nevertheless, he had done just that at Pluscarden Abbey. Now that he was at the end of his studies as a grand master initiate, this l...

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.”

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

I own Demon Trappers # 0.5 and #1 - I can't wait to read them. Should I start with #0.5 first or #1?"


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.
