    Bound by Shadow

    I strongly suggest you read the previous books (Devil Inside, The Devil You Know and The Devil's Due) in order before reading this installment. In the cruel world that Jenna Black has built, humans can legally register and volunteer to host demons. Some great upsides for humans, when possessed they become nearly indestructible, and are able to achieve and contribute many great things to humanity. However, some downsides to human possession are they cease control of decision making and motor functions, are usually aware and helpless to control what is happening around them and are basically reduced to ride as passengers in their own body. Morgan Kingsley is the strongest exorcist in her profession but since she's been possessed by Lugh, the King of the Demons involuntarily, her career has taken a nose dive. Unfortunately for Morgan, things are about to get a lot worse than her poor diet of Ramen noodles. She has a stalker who has been very good at making her life hell. This stalker is responsible for Morgan being personally sued for a exorcism gone wrong, has evilly vandalized her car, perversely sends her presents of severed body parts and successfully sets out to take everything she loves away from her, including Brian. While I enjoyed this installment immensely, I had to deduct a star. Morgan Kingsley exhibits qualities that I hate in a heroine and after all this time has not grown much personally. She is still a tad bit whiny, over abundantly sassy with tendencies of being too-stupid-to-live and the worse of her atrocities, her mind is as thick and as impenetrable to common sense as a solid brick wall. She often overreacts and blows her gasket, still misses the obvious and is way too stubborn. Despite these vastly annoying qualities, this was still a fabulous installment. The premise alone of demons being from another realm existing solely as incorporeal entities of energy is fascinating. The story was fast paced, exciting, interesting and creative. I highly recommend this book and series to dark urban fantasy readers and look forward to the next installment The Devil's Playground due out 2/23/2010.

    Finally!

    First, I'll say I've really enjoyed this series. The tension between Morgan and Lugh is great. The tension between Morgan and Adam is great. The tension between everyone and Raphael is great. I like Brian's loyalty to Morgan and his own principles. But, that has also been a problem for me. Brian's constant willingness to take whatever Morgan dishes out purposefully or not, has made him one dimensional and a well, frankly a doormat. Finally, finally, finally he gets a clue! Finally, finally, finally Morgan succumbs to the stress and chaos of her life. The tough nothing gets in ever shell finally dissolves and she acts...human. Finally she sets her annoying pride aside. But, like I said I really enjoy the series. I wish Morgan's pride could have taken a back seat earlier in the series. Looking forward to reading the next and I think final book!

    Excellent Book..if you like demons

    This is the next book in a series about the same character and how she gets into and out of trouble with demons possessing humans. To enjoy it, you have to take a step or two back from reality, but it is an excellent book for just fun, lazy day reading. It will be difficult to "get into" and understand what all is happening if you have not read the books that come before. It can be a "stand alone", but will be much more enjoyable if you've read the ones before.
    I can hardly wait for the next installment.
