Morgan Kingsley is an exorcist who is possessed by the king of demons, Lugh. In her head lies (and lays) the only hope for humanity.
She knew demons weren’t to be trusted and learning they want to create human vegetables to live in solidifies her hatred. She abhors them and wants them gone. Unfortunately, that can’t happen until Lugh’s brother is stopped.
Morgan is being stalked for her demon knowledge and doesn’t stand a chance against the psycho demon stalking her without Lugh’s help. For the demon hunting her is gleefully determined to torture the location of the exiled king out of her.
With family issues tearing her apart and lust filled thoughts are haunting her dreams, Morgan does what she does best. Tazer anyone stupid enough to get in her way.
Morgan is stubborn, mean and a hot mess. She suffered physically in The Devil Inside, now she must face the emotional battle: a battle against her ex-boyfriend, brother and parents. Each will have dire repercussions and the backlash alone might kill her, if the lust doesn’t burn her up first.
One of the hardest parts of this book is remembering that Lugh is not corporeal. He is in her mind with no real body. I kept finding myself wanting them to hook up and then I’d realize that it would only happen in her subconscious. It wouldn’t be life altering. It would be a simple sexual release and nothing more. Because how do you have a relationship with a demon?
As in the previous book, there is a sexual scene involving MM. It’s interesting to see it play out in the book, but it also made me uncomfortable. Not uncomfortable enough to put down the book though.
One of the great things about this series is how easy it is to read. It’s a one day, entertaining book that allows the reader to flip pages, but doesn’t leave the reader hollow. It’s sizzling and snarky. It’ll make you mad at the heroine before making you feel bad for her. I guess that’s all you can really ask from a book.
A break from reality. A vacation in a world you would never live in, but would like a peak at. Something that can interest you and make you care enough to react emotionally, either in anger or joy.
Ms. Black does a great job filling in the back-story without irritating the reader; this is imperative for the reader to understand The Devil you Know. For the best understanding and appreciation, read book one The Devil Inside.
