Quickie Review: Retro Demonology

Retro Demonology by Jana Oliver

Retro Demonology was released today as a free download from It is a prequel short story about Riley Blackthorne’s first solo trapping experience. The download also includes a sneak peek at The Demon Trapper’s Daughter which will be released in February.

Even in 2018 people in Atlanta are still into retro, and Riley’s first assignment is to catch her demon in the home of a couple who dig the ’60s. Riley is the daughter of Master Trapper Paul Blackthorne, but trapping demons never seems to go quite so easily for her as it does for her father. But, for a first assignment things go pretty smoothly, that is until she heads home.

This was another entertaining short story offered today by St. Martin’s Griffin. Retro Demonology is the perfect introduction to author Jana Oliver’s writing style and to Riley Blackthorne, apprentice Demon Trapper. Although I’ve already read The Demon Trapper’s Daughter, this short story will be just as enjoyable for those who have not yet had the chance.

If you haven’t already done so, The Demon Trapper’s Daughter is a definite add to any “to be read” list.
