Summary from Goodreads:

In FORETOLD, the fourth Demon Trappers novel by Jana Oliver, Riley faces the final battle for humanity and Beck's heart—and Hell is the least of her problems 

Now that Riley’s managed to (just barely) fend off Armageddon, everything’s changed. Well . . . most things. After their passionate kiss before the big battle in the cemetery, Beck is back to treating her like a little girl, as if nothing ever happened. While she’d love to just tell him off and move on, Riley vowed to take care of Beck the way he’s taken care of her since her father’s death—but she’s about to get a whole lot more than she bargained for. When she’s commissioned to go with Beck to his hometown and help him care for his dying mother, they stumble too close to a dark and murderous secret, one that Beck fears will drive Riley away from him forever. As chaos breaks loose, Riley may be Beck's only hope for redemption . . . and survival. 

Meanwhile, up in Atlanta, it’s quickly becoming clear that Heaven may have won a battle, but the war is far from over. Riley and Beck face a stormy future, as Lucifer's ex-right-hand-man, Sartael, proves himself to be more resilient than anyone thought. He has Atlanta in his grip and is about to begin a brutal war with the prince of Hell. As the seconds tick down toward a final confrontation, it's up to Riley and the man she loves to finally defeat their old enemy, or lose everything they've fought for.

I was so excited when I got this book. Sadly I ended being let down. The 3 star rating is VERY generous.

The book is actually two different stories crudely glued together with Elmers's.

The first part is my favorite. It does not fit at all into the series but it was the most interesting. We finally get to see more about Beck's past when he goes back to his hometown. It's exiting. I read through this part super fast. It didn't lag and answered questions I had about Beck. First part of book gets 3 stars.

The latter half of the book is super boring. Me while reading most of this part:

It's a rehash of the third book. It took me forever to get through this part. None of it was interesting and I almost gave up. There was a big epic battle at the end that sucked. Riley is a damsel in distress in the battle to make Beck look better. And it was so boring. I was 100% done with everyone at this point. I was done with Riley and Beck. They suddenly have NO chemistry! Stewart was annoying me. Lucifer and Satrael and Ori were disappointing. Uhg. I am so glad it's over. There was other pointless subplots in the book but I don't have the energy to remember them or write about them.

Plus plus also and what the hell was the point in Ori taking Riley's abusive ex to hell? That should have been left out. It had no fucking point. We don't see him again.
