TBR Meltdown: W*n All 3 Jana Oliver Demon Trapper Books

For the rest of May, on one or two days a week, I'll be "culling the herd," so lots of giveaways forthcoming! I'm drowning in books!

First, a brief commercial interruption (don't you hate those?). If you're in the mood for a sexy vampire romance with a heavy urban fantasy theme, check out Susannah Sandlin's interview today over at author Sharon Buchbinder's blog HERE. Susannah is giving away a copy of REDEMPTION, the first book in her paranormal romance trilogy that comes out June 12. Think starving vampires, pandemic, ghost towns, the rural South, family grudges...Check it out!

Now...today, I'm pulling out all three titles from Jana Oliver's great Demon Trappers series: The Demon Trapper's Daughter; Soul Thief; and the newest one, Forgiven. I really like this series. First, it's set in a futuristic version of Atlanta, and since I live about a hundred miles from ATL that's fun for me to imagine. It's YA, but it's not "sighing over the hot new boy in school" YA or "new girl in school all the guys are hot for but she has a big secret" YA. Riley Blackthorne, the only daughter of a legendary demon hunter, is a great character, author Jana Oliver spins a great story, and this reads as well for adults as for teens.

If you missed it a few weeks back, Jana was here for a Q&A. You can check it out HERE.

So...want to win all three books in the Demon Trapper's series? Just leave a comment here, and for an extra entry, leave a comment over at Sharon Buchbinder's blog--HA--surprised you! A third entry for a Tweet or Retweet of the contest.

Susannah will choose a winner of her book, Redemption, and I'll combine comments here and at the other blog to choose a winner for the Jana Oliver three-book set. Now...go forth and comment!


  1. I've only read the first book in Jana Oliver's series but it's really good! Would love to win all three of them. And I agree with you, one of the things I loved about Riley is that she's not the swoony type!

    I've not read much YA. Quite amused with your comments on the genre (very apt!) & what the series is not.
