The Demon Trapper's Daughter: A Demon Trapper NovelRelease Date: February 1, 2011
Riley Blackthorne just needs a chance to prove herself – and that’s exactly what the demons are counting on… Seventeen-year-old Riley, the only daughter of legendary Demon Trapper, Paul Blackthorne, has always dreamed of following in her father's footsteps.  The good news is, with human society seriously disrupted by economic upheaval and Lucifer increasing the number of demons in all major cities, Atlanta’s local Trappers’ Guild needs all the help they can get – even from a girl. When she’s not keeping up with her homework or trying to manage her growing crush on fellow apprentice, Simon, Riley’s out saving distressed citizens from foul-mouthed little devils – Grade One Hellspawn only, of course, per the strict rules of the Guild. Life’s about as normal as can be for the average demon-trapping teen. But then a Grade Five Geo-Fiend crashes Riley’s routine assignment at a library, jeopardizing her life and her chosen livelihood.  And, as if that wasn’t bad enough, sudden tragedy strikes the Trappers’ Guild, spinning Riley down a more dangerous path than she ever could have imagined. As her whole world crashes down around her, who can Riley trust with her heart – and her life?

The Dark and Hollow Places (Forest of Hands and Teeth, Book 3)Release date: March 22, 2011

There are many things that Annah would like to forget: the look on her sister's face before Annah left her behind in the Forest of Hands and Teeth, her first glimpse of the Horde as they swarmed the Dark City, the sear of the barbed wire that would scar her for life. But most of all, Annah would like to forget the morning Elias left her for the Recruiters. Annah's world stopped that day, and she's been waiting for Elias to come home ever since. Somehow, without him, her life doesn't feel much different than the dead that roam the wasted city around her. Until she meets Catcher, and everything feels alive again. But Catcher has his own secrets. Dark, terrifying truths that link him to a past Annah has longed to forget, and to a future too deadly to consider. And now it's up to Annah: can she continue to live in a world covered in the blood of the living? Or is death the only escape from the Return's destruction?

Rot & Ruin. by Jonathan MaberryRelease Date: September 14, 2010
In the zombie-infested, post-apocalyptic America where Benny Imura lives, every teenager must find a job by the time they turn fifteen or get their rations cut in half. Benny doesn't want to apprentice as a zombie hunter with his boring older brother Tom, but he has no choice. He expects a tedious job whacking zoms for cash, but what he gets is a vocation that will teach him what it means to be human.


  1. I have the Demon Trapper's Daughter, but have yet to read it. Hopefully I will get to it sooner than later! I have sooo much to read right now :)

  2. I've had no time to read The Demon Trapper's Daughter but I'm sure I'll eventually get to it...

    I'm really hoping that The Dark and Hollow Places ends on a good note... I'm always so depressed for Carrie Ryan's characters. They deserve a bit of happiness in a zombie-infested world. :)

  3. I am looking forward to hopefully getting a copy of Demon Trapper's Daughter.

    And I hope Dark and Hollow Places ends with some kind of happiness... it is a little depressing, but I still love the storyline. :)


I read every comment and try to reply to them all. Thanks for visiting my little piece of the blogosphere.
