Forgiven by Jana Oliver

From Goodreads: Riley Blackthorne. Kicking hell’s ass one demon at a time...

Riley has made a bargain with Heaven, and now they've come to collect.

Lucifer's finest are ruling the streets and it seems that Armageddon might be even closer than Riley imagined. But with her soul and her heart in play it's all she can do to keep herself alive, let alone save the world. Riley's not afraid of kicking some major demon butt, but when it comes to a battle between Heaven and Hell, she might need a little help...

Honestly, this series just keeps getting better and better.   I loved it!

As I have said in previous reviews the world building and mythology is absolutely brilliant - so much planning must have gone into it! It's really exciting - so many different things are going on and not all of them turn out the way I expected them to! You've got to love it when an author can completely surprise you.

I felt sorry for Riley in this one. She really doesn't know which way to go - who she should trust, what the best decision is.    And of course, what is happening with her dad must be utterly heartbreaking. I love how her relationship with Beck develops in this one - it definitely holds promise for the ending I want in Foretold!

There are some really great action scenes in this one too. I love the way Jana Oliver is talented at both these and the more 'quiet' scenes. She is also really great at pacing these stories - once you pick them up you really can't put them down!

Of course, I can't review this without saying how much I love Beck...   I am, however, a bit concerned over his secret and what it will be. I'm really looking forward to Foretold to find out and see how this all ends. I have the feeling it's going to be epic!
