Review: The Devil's Due by Jenna Black

Released: November 25, 2008
Publisher: Dell
Rated: Adult
Series: Morgan Kingsley, Book 3
Buy Amazon | Book Depository

Possession was never this much fun

Trust me or die…That’s the choice Morgan Kingsley, exorcist, is given by the gorgeous rogue demon who’s gotten inside her. The truth is, Morgan has dozens of reasons not to trust anyone, from the violence that torched her house and killed her father to a love life that’s left her questioning her relationship with her erstwhile boyfriend, Brian. But Lugh, a king among demons, won’t take no for an answer. He’s prying into her body, her mind, even her sex life. And he’s just pulled Morgan into a power struggle that could have devastating consequences for both the human and demon worlds.

But Morgan still has a job to do: investigating the highly bizarre possession of the son of a wealthy Philadelphia couple. That hunt leads Morgan into a realm of sexual depravity, then a terrifying kidnapping.… Now a woman who makes her living prying demons from their hosts finds her day job colliding with the night: a darkness that is attracting demons of the damnedest sort, including the one who’s about to demand his ultimate due.…  

What I thought:

I'm liking this series more and more. The story is great and starting to get very interesting. The counsel members was very interesting. I'm excited to see where this goes in the next book.

I have to be honest. I'm glad Brian's still around. The relationship is still shaky, but I'm still hoping for the best. I had a good laugh with the little phone call with Lugh and Brian. That should be interesting in other books!

It was good to know I wasn't the only one starting to get fed up with Morgan and her resistance to do what it takes to survive. Lugh is starting to demand more of her and doing what he must to insure the survival of them both. While I'm frustrated with Morgan at times, I still love the character. I'm hoping for some character growth in the next book though. I'm waiting for her to finally let it click that things aren't always going to have a convenient solution.

Still a very exciting series. The story is building and building and I'm excited to get my hands on the next book.

I still have to read the last book in this series. The series is a little uneven at times but I still like it.
I think we're the only two people who like Brian though. Everyone I know hates him...lol

Really? I do like him. I have a hard time trying to see her with Lugh if he can't have his own body.

I loved Black's Guardians of the Night and have been looking forward to this series.
