Possessor even though her demon can tease her body senseless She’s also a woman who has just discovered a shocking truth everything she once believed about her ast her identity may have been a lieWith a family secret exploding around her and a full scale demon war ig. Going and the tension just keeps iling up After reading other reviews of this one I was expecting the sexual situations in this series to be offensivewhich I didn t feel in the least There really isn t an overwhelming amount More inuendo than anything And it s absolutely integral to the story in my opinion Morgan is still a little whiney for my tastelosing a half star but she has grown a little since the last book Which tells me that the next will show a little growth I really could like herand I m retty sure I will throughout the next coupel of books Ms Black has written interesting characters I like most of them and I m interested in learning much about them And am dying to see where she takes them next I m definately looking into the next one in this series Second in the Morgan Kingsley urban fantasy series set in an alternate Philadelphia The StoryMorgan Kingsley is an exorcist a caster outer of demons in a family that worships demonsso you can imagine how much fun the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays are in the Kingsley homesteadThen Morgan finds out the truth about her birth Worse Lugh catches her at a weak moment and hypnotises her into remembering what happened at the hospital and she learns the truth about the encephalitis when she was 13Then Andy wakes up from his coma Devil Inside only to find that Lugh s other brother Raphael is a bit too concerned about what Andy might say about demonic ossessions ie Andy s ass may be grass Then Morgan finds out she is a roduct of rape which makes her almost impervious to demonic ossession and Dougal has sicced a hunter demon on Morgan who will stop at nothing to test MorganThe CharactersMorgan is a selfish well intended hypocritical chickenshit asshole with an avoidance streak and a mouth that has never encountered a brake I can t stand her That said her life is fascinating and I sure wouldn t mind a Lugh in my life Woo hoo He s a hunky devilBlack has created some amazing charactersyeah yeah yeaheven Morgan hassomething oh yeah Lugh Adam and Domenic make an incredible couple Domenic is such a sweetheart and a fabulous cook and Adam well Adam is a challenge with a hard edge Andrew Andrew is a bit of an anomaly who has been through some nasty experiences Then there s Morgan s arents Oh yeah after you meet her arents you re kind of surprised she turned out as well as she did And Brian He is such a sweetheart and whooo I dunno how things will turn out in Devil s Due Not after what Brian goes through in The Devil You KnowThe National Geographic Kids Almanac 2020 primary bad guy is Der J ger the Hunter sent by Dougal Lugh s evil demonic brother to find Lugh in whoever s body he s hiding inMy TakeBlack will keep you reeling from one action to the next from one bomb to the next dragging you through sensual dreams to torturous encounters The Devil You Know is difficult tout down try to set time aside when you begin reading this tale of revelationsThe CoverI really can t figure out who the guy is in the suit standing in back watching Morgan meditating in her circle of candles He doesn t look how I icture Lugh He could be Andrew or Brian As for Morgan s outfitit seems a bit bare even for Morgan I m not sure what The Title Is About title is about Devil You Know could refer to Lugh or Adam the friendly demons that Morgan knows or it could refer to Raphael or Der J ger Then again it could refer to Morgan meeting the host that is Adam s body when the Adam demon slides into Domenic to save his life Of course my ersonal vote goes to her Why Is It Always About You?: The Seven Deadly Sins of Narcissism parentstalk about demonic actions Sorry to say book two by Jenna Black in this series was an absolute shocker Pity because the whole concept of this series a kick ass female exorcist fighting against illegal demons on the mortallain is very interesting Unfortunately this one fell below Gods and fighting men: the story of the Tuatha de Danaan and of the Fianna of Ireland, arranged and put into English by Lady Gregory par I enjoyed the first book but felt it could of been better so Iicked up the second book in the vain hope it would improve as the series went along Wrong I have the third book in the series but I just Charming the Firefighter promptlyut them all in the charity bag waiting to go to charity I really hope someone else will enjoy them because it was certainly a big waste of my time over the christmas holidays It took me weeks to read this because it was so convoluted do not attempt to read book 2 3 or 4 without reading 1 first or you will be in erpetual confusion Morgan the so called kick ass exorcist is nothing than a whining over analyzing and whimpy woman with too much anger and baggage She just droned on and on and Niting Morgan is a key layer in an unsettled world Then a rogue sociopathic demon enters her life with a bang His name is The Hunter And since she is the rey Morgan has only one choice to hunt The Hunter down no matter what heartbreaking truths she uncovers along the .
