Review: The Devil You Know by Jenna Black

Released: July 29, 2008
Publisher: Dell
Rated: Adult
Series:  Morgan Kinsley, Book 2
Buy The Devil You Know

The beautiful. The bad. The possessed.

Some people worship them. Some people fear them. And some people—like Morgan Kingsley—go up against them toe-to-toe, flesh to flesh, and power against power. An exorcist by trade, Morgan is one of the few humans with an aura stronger than her 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 past, her identity, may have been a lie.

With a family secret exploding around her and a full-scale demon war igniting, Morgan is a key player 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 prey, Morgan has only one choice: to hunt The Hunter down—no matter what heartbreaking truths she uncovers along the way….

What I thought:

This was a good follow up to the first. Things aren't getting any easier for Morgan. Lugh is still stuck in her body. After finishing the first book, I had time to think things over. I was starting to wonder just how this series would play out. How far it could possibly go. I'm liking the direction of it, to be honest. This stands out from most of the other recent books I have read.

What I still love about this series, is that Morgan is strong. She's somehow able to control her body but able to let Lugh in when needed. I'm excited to learn all about this mysterious girl who is able to resist possession. And that is what this book was centered on. I thought the story line was well written and thought out. I was very happy with the many things we learn about Morgan. Very intriguing.

I'm still wondering where things go. I can't imagine it would be easy to write about an attraction when said attraction is stuck in your head. I am interested to see how that plays out. I'm liking the series very well so far. Jenna has yet to let me down!!

I loved Dark Descendant by Jenna Black, but this series doesn't have the same draw for me.

I liked this series so far, but not as much as Dark Descendant.

I'm blaming it on jet lag from the honeymoon. I posted book 2 before book 1. Whoops! I'll fix that. Later.
