Kula is the seventeen-year-old of Wild West outlaw Nat Baker. But when her father is accused of a crime he didn't commit, he sends Kula to San Francisco to find a secret box that will guarantee his freedom. In a city where Kula knows no one, she is not sure who to trust: Philippa Everts, the lady who she is living with; David Wong, the kind and well-mannered boy she meets; or handsome and devilish Will Henderson, whose family might know something about this mysterious box. But what Kula doesn't know is that all these people are inextricably tied to her family, and ultimately her future.

Unfortunately, I did not enjoy Forgiven. Aside from the setting in San Francisco and the mystery surrounding a box, I don't know if I would have continued to read Forgiven. My biggest problem with the novel was that it was boring. Though Kula is supposed to be on the search for a box, I felt like nothing really happens. The character that was supposed to be a villain didn't really feel like one. There were two love interests, David and Will. I didn't care for either as neither's character was fleshed out and developed enough. And then when David started to declare his undying love for Kula, after only a few encounters with the girl, I liked him even less. The box, and the mystery that is a part of it, was a bit anti-climatic, but I kept reading in hopes that there would be something interesting about it. I did enjoy reading about the city of San Francisco and naturally, the earthquake of 1906 plays a big part in the end. I love history so that was a redeeming point but overall, I did not like Forgiven.

Riley Blackthorne is in more trouble than she has ever been in. Caught between her bargain with Heaven and her deal with Lucifer, the Vatican Demon Hunters are watching her closely. She's doing the best she can to keep up with all of her responsibilities, such as paying the bills and keeping her house tidy, but it's kind of hard to keep up when she is busy visiting her father's reanimated body and trying to keep the streets of Atlanta free of demons. Her dad's apprentice, Beck, isn't helping either. He's too busy whining about the mistakes she's made and refusing to trust her again. Then suddenly, unexplainable trouble shows up and it's all on Riley's shoulders to stop it.

Jana Oliver impressed me once again with the third book of this amazing series. I was so excited when I got it that I started reading and just couldn't put it down. The action in it is breathtaking and somehow she also puts love and mystery in the mix. This book was wonderful and I would definitely recommend it to young adults. The story is so creative and very well put together. I loved it.

The language can be a little harsh for some readers.
