    The Devil's Due by Jenna Black

    I'm obviously a series junkie. Jenna Black's latest book in her Morgan Kingsley Exorcist series was another book I just could not put down. Morgan is an exorcist (duh) living in a contemporary world where demons are real and people can volunteer to become a demon host. Morgan is called in when demons don't play nicely with humans and commit crimes or seize control of a host without permission. She's one of the most successful and strongest exorcists working in the U.S. today. In the first book, "The Devil Inside", Morgan finds out that she's been unwillingly possessed herself! Moral and ethical mayhem ensues and these books do have quite a bit of violence too. They also feature some pretty hot sex (both homo and hetero, BDSM, etc) yet still have a definite urban fantasy feel to them. Since I like romance, fantasy, and urban fantasy; these books hit on all three for me. Anyway in the second book "The Devil You Know", Morgan again faces some thorny moral and ethical issues with a side dish of family problems to boot! She also became a bit more than friends with the King of the Demons who she is now an unwilling and uneasy host for. Enough of the backstory.<BR/><BR/>In "The Devil's Due", Morgan has to make one of the hardest decisions of her life...she must choose between friend and family and become complicit in not just allowing, but helping, a demon to inhabit a human. As if that's not bad enough, throw in an illegal possession by a demon, the kidnapping of two human girls, and her own demon, Lugh the King of Demons, is swapping seduction hints with her lover while still trying to seduce Morgan himself!! <BR/><BR/>I think one of the reasons I enjoy Jenna Black's stories about Morgan so much is that, compared to her, my life is a piece of cake! Each book has a realistic (for that world) ethical and moral dilemma that Morgan must face; and when I read about her decisions and the reasons she has for those decisions, it makes her even more real to me. So if this sounds like something you might like, I can't say more than that I eagerly await each new glimpse Black provides into Morgan's screwed up life.

    Demons!

    This book was a great read for those who are tired of vampires and werewolves. I loved the book for that fact alone. While I love my vampire novels, it's nice to take a break for a while and this was the series to do it. If you like Anita Blake....you'll love this one as well!

    Third Books a Charm

    I really enjoyed this book. Morgan is an exorcist who has unwillingly been possessed with the king of the demons (Lugh). He is in grave danger in the demon realm, and needs to stay hidden. If he is found, humanity and his thrown are at risk. Morgan has reluctantly agreed to keep hosting and protecting him and hidding his existence. Morgan is approached by a mother (Claudia) who wants her to perform an illegal exorcism on her son (Tommy). She believes Tommy, who was so anti-demon for most of his life, has now changed his mind and has agreed to be legally possessed. Morgan agrees that Tommy¿s sudden and bizarre shift in belief is suspicious. She starts investigating to find any evidence of Tommy being illegally possessed before he agreed to be legally possessed. Morgan and her associates; which consist of her brother (Andrew) who is also reluctantly possessed by the Demon King¿s brother (Raphael), the Director of Special Forces (Adam) and his live-in lover (Dominic); set out to find the truth. My only complaint is; at times Morgan gets extremely dense and bratty. I would like to see more personal growth and maturity for her character.
