The fourth and final book in The Demon Trappers series was a bittersweet read. On one hand I was happy with how the series ended, but on the other I was sad to leave the characters and world behind.
Foretold is split into two halves. The first half is focused on Beck's past, we finally get a look into his harsh upbringing and learn what exactly it is that's been holding him back. I've been a fan of Beck since book 1, because despite all the hardships he faced as a child he's managed to accomplish things in his life and become a good man. A man that loves Taylor Swift, has a pet rabbit, and always puts Riley before himself. I was thrilled to be a part of his journey, uncovering his layers and getting to know him better.
The action really starts to kick-off in the second half of the book which is focused on the brewing battle between Sartael and Lucifer.
Riley has always been a likeable protagonist, but at times her thoughts and actions have been incredibly frustrating. However, there was great development in her character in Forgiven and now in the final book she's become the type of character I always hoped she would be; smart, strong, and thoughtful.
I've been rooting for Beck and Riley since book 1, because the tension and chemistry between those two is insane. Their relationship has been rocky from the start so it was great to see them finally coming to terms with and accepting their feelings for each other.
After the events that took place in Forbidden I disliked like Ori, but by the end of Forgiven my feelings for him had unexpectedly changed. I really felt for him in Foretold, and after he's righteous actions towards the end I found myself rooting for him, hoping he would get a good ending. And he did. A bittersweet one, but satisfying nonetheless. Which just goes to show what a great writer the author really is, she has done a brilliant job of creating layered characters that have continued to grow throughout the series.
I have never felt so attached to a series before, Oliver has continued to impress book after book and I look forward to her future titles.
"I had a Chris Hemsworth poster too" she said, smiling in recognition. "He made a totally hot Norse God."
Beck mumbled in agreement.
