Today I have a mini Question and Answer session with the 2 main characters from Jana Oliver’s fab books from the Demon Trappers series, Riley and Beck. I adore these books with a scary amount of passion and the last in the series Foretold is out now! eeeeeeep!
Stand by as Riley Blackthorne prepares to kick some serious demon butt for the last time in this thrilling, dramatic and sexy conclusion to THE DEMON TRAPPERS series. Riley’s always known that Denver Beck had a chequered history, but she’s not prepared for what it actually means to be in love with a guy with this many dark secrets. Now that he’s finally admitted to himself that he’s in love with her too, there’s no more hiding the truth about his past. And as it turns out, fending off a demon apocalypse is nothing compared to what’s to come. . .
Sisterspooky: Do you ever wish you weren’t a Demon Trapper?
Riley: About a thousand times a day, I think. Well, maybe not that much but there are times when I really wish I could do something else that didn’t involve getting bruised, bitten, peed on or cursed at.
S: What’s an average demon trapping day like for you?
R: It’s never the same. One day I might be hunting a Grade Three demon with Beck or one of the other trappers, the next I’m on my own trying to catch a Klepto-Fiend. Every day is different and I think that’s good. If not, the job would be boring.
S: What do you think are key items to have for any trapper?
R: An endless supply of secondhand clothes. Really, I’m not kidding. I have trashed out so many jackets and pairs of blue jeans in the last few months.
S: Any advice to other hopeful female demon trappers out there?
R: I think I would say, “You want to do this, why?” I know, that’s not fair since I’m a trapper and it’ll just sound like I’m trying to remain that one special snowflake or something. But really, who wants a dirty job like this? But if you do, you’d better have a good sense of humor because this job will get to you if you don’t. Oh, and if you think you can look hot trapping, you’re doing it wrong.
Sisterspooky: Is Demon Trapping a career move you’d recommend to other ex military like yourself?
Beck: Maybe. It’s a rough life, but those who’ve served know what that’s like. Ya can make a decent livin’ if ya work hard. It’s honorable work and often that’s the best ya can do.
S: What’s you favourite part of the Demon trapping life you lead?
B: The feelin’ that I’m doin’ some good in this world. I like most of the trappers I work with. They’re decent folks. We can joke with each other, but when the sh*t gets serious, I know they’re watchin’ my back.
S: Can you remove your shirt for me…..for research purposes of course
B: Ya know, that’s kinda forward, but ya did ask all polite like. Most girls don’t like all the scars, though, so ya’ve been warned. ::strips off shirt and then flexes muscles:: How’s that?
