Forgiven by Jana Oliver will be released in the U.S. on March 27, 2012 in paperback and eBook formats.
Published by St. Martin’s Griffin, the print edition is 368 pages.
I can’t believe it’s less than a month until release date for Forgiven. I had a chance to read the second book in the series, Soul Thief, just a bit early and so it’s felt like forever since I’ve last heard from Riley Blackthorne. And it’s been all the more torturous because of just how things ended.
While the week of March 27th may be fairly quiet for new releases in YA, there was absolutely no way I wouldn’t pick Forgiven as my book to watch this week. And not just because The Demon Trapper’s Daughter was the very first printed ARC I ever read.
This series is unbelievably awesome. The demon’s are demonic. Riley is seriously kick-a**, Den Beck is one maddeningly frustrating but absolutely swoon-worthy man and then there’s Ori…. Well, you just have to read Soul Thief (also called Forbidden) to know what I mean about Ori.
I have been hiding from the Goodreads description until now. I did not want to be even more tormented by reading the description. I was afraid I might be…. I wasn’t wrong to be afraid.
Things do take an even darker turn. Riley is in an even worse predicament than she was in the last time. Things do not look good for her and Den Beck. And I don’t even want to think about what Ori is up to.
On top of all of that, apparently things are getting worse in Atlanta…. I will say no more except to tell those who haven’t yet started this series to avoid peeking at the Goodreads description as it is just a bit spoiler-y for the first two books.
Oh, and there is a fourth and final book coming out this year called Foretold. Now that title definitely has an ominous ring to it. I am not sure whether I’m more thrilled that there is a book four or more devastated that the series will be ending so soon.
This series is action-packed and exciting. The characters have an edge. The demons are absolutely disgusting. There is plenty of sarcasm to keep you grinning. And with a heroine like Riley, these books are impossible to put down. So, yeah. Forgiven is most definitely the Book to Watch this week.
