The Devil's Due (Morgan Kingsley #3)
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, B ...more
As usual, Morgan's mouth needs an off button but several times she forced herself to s ...more
I get that she's supposed to be really tough and emotionally f*d up and really really scared of losing control but at this point I sort of ...more
I am giving this five stars, not because it's any better than the first two, but because it was just as good and this series has been so consistently entertaining and fun to read, I feel like it's earned it's way to 5 star status. I'll continue to give these books 5 stars unless they start to slip and disappoint.
Only two problems with this book: 1. Not enough Adam and Dom (though it would take a lot of Adam and Dom for me to think there ...more
Oddly, I found this book in the romance section instead of SFF where I found the first two, but this book had a lot less romance than the others. I'm starting to like Brian more, but there's still something about him and his relationship with Morgan that's bothering me. I think it might be t ...more
Ein Punkt, der mich bei dieser Reihe immer mehr zu stören beginnt ist Morgans Unfähigkeit sich gegenüber den Männern zu behaupten. In den letzten Büchern fand ich diesen Aspekt recht interessant und hoffte eigentlich auf eine Weiterentwicklung, doch diese blieb bis jetzt aus. Sie wird zwar als starke Persönlichkeit dargestellt, aber von den Männern vielmehr nach Lust und Laune benutzt. Man hat den Eindruck Morgan wird zu einer Spielfigur gemacht, eigene Entscheidungen t ...more
I think I have a love hate relationship with these books. I like the world a lot, very unique and the ending is always action packed. It's just that Morgan can drive me batty at times. She tries to come across tough as nails but really she can just be a raging idiot at times. I think if she had a little more snark and there was a smidgen of humor in these books it would make all of the difference in the world. Still I'll read the next book though. I am curious how it all plays out.
The plot was OK.
For an Exorcist, she really doesn't exorcise very much in the series. Altho in this book, she did more than in the first two.
I still wish she'd stop telling me she is such a badass, mean, cold bitch.
Also, Brian, grow a pair.
Black's exorcist series has been my guilty pleasure read for a quite a while. The Devil's Due is another solid entry into a world where demon's are among us and some humans willingly allow themselves to be possessed. It's hard to beat the crazy fabulous ending from the previous book, The Devil You Know, but Black comes close to it.
The constant battle of Morgan—our loud mouthed exorcist—and Lugh—the yummy demon king--has been the highlight of reading this series. This time around Lugh a ...more

The story: Morgan is approached by a distraught mother to investigate whether her son was coerced into becoming a demon host. Meanwhile, Lugh is planning on assembling ...more
Im Gegensatz zu den beiden ersten Bänden ist dieser hier in Rot statt einem Blauton gehalten, sieht toll aus. passt nur nicht ganz zu den anderen xD aber da die beiden Folgebände erst recht nicht dazu passen ist das auch egal. Das Cover zeigt Morgan, die hier einen diabolischen Gesichtsausdruck hat, für mich das bisher Bester Cover der Reihe
Ein weiterer Band, neue Probleme mit denen sich unsere Exorzistin Morgan herumschlagen muss.
Und über allem schwebt immer noch das P ...more

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 h ...more

Zu diesem Buch gibt es nur eine kurze Meinungsäußerung von mir, da es der 3. Teil einer Reihe ist und ich mit fast jedem Wort was ich zum Inhalt sagen würde, alles aus den Vorgängerbänden verraten würde. Diese Reihe ist allerdings so genial, dass ich niemanden, der die Reihe noch nicht kennt, den Genuss versauen möchte. Diese Reihe ist eine einzigartige und extrem gut geschriebene Urbanfantasy-Reihe. Es ist eine Schande, dass der Knaur Verlag nach 3 Bänden das Überse ...more
De très bonne facture, ce tome se place parfaitement dans la lignée des précédents avec une intrigue propre à chaque tome le tout se plaçant dans un schéma bien plus vaste : La sauvegarde de Lugh et la restitution de son trône au royaume des démons.
Cette fois, Morgane se retrouve impliquée dans un cas étrange où une personne supposée ardente opposante aux droits des démons change subitement de bord et en quelques jours devi ...more
