The beautiful. The bad. The possessed.

Some people worship them. Some people fear them. And some people—like Morgan Kingsley—go up against them toe-to-toe, flesh to flesh, and power against power. An exorcist by trade, Morgan is one of the few humans with an aura stronger than her possessor, even though her demon can tease her body senseless. She’s also a woman who has just

Whew! I'm almost at a loss for words. "The Devil You Know" is book 2 in Jenna Black's Morgan Kinsley, exorcist, series. Absolutely fabulous! BUT, you can't read book two without reading book 1, "The Devil Inside", or you will be way behind the powercurve. Also I should warn you that this book is very dark...I would classify it as Urban fantasy with heavy sexual overtones rather than paranormal romance. Indeed, Dell is marketing this series under Spectra, their Fantasy line.

Wow..I have to say, I really like the direction this series is taking. 4.5 stars. This one was really dark, just like the first. I have a feeling that the next installment in this series will be darker yet. The action just keeps going and the tension just keeps piling up!

After reading other reviews of this one I was expecting the "sexual situations" in this series to be offensive..which I didn't feel in the least. There really isn't an overwhelming amount. More inuendo than anything. And it's a

You know, this series could really be something. The concept is cool. It's just that the writing is mediocre at best. Jenna black is a teller. Not a show-er.
In the two books that I have read, there has been no character growth, and the heroine is a nasty bitch. Now, I'm all for bitchiness when it's necessary, but Morgan is over the top, in your face, trying to be so tough by being telling us how bitchy she is, that it makes me bang my head against the wall and want to put the book down and just

Second in the Morgan Kingsley urban fantasy series set in an alternate Philadelphia.

The Story
Morgan Kingsley is an exorcist, a caster-outer of demons in a family that worships demons…so you can imagine how much fun the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays are in the Kingsley homestead.

Then Morgan finds out the truth about her birth. Worse, Lugh catches her at a weak moment and hypnotises her into remembering what happened at the hospital and she learns the truth about the "encephalitis" when she

There are a lot of paranormal authors out there in literary land who have delved into the demon plain. In the demon realm we do have a few heavy hitters: Lilith Saintcrow (one of my favs), Kim Harrison (of course), Keri Author, Rachel Cain, naughty Emma Holly (smoldering) and a spattering of more, but Jenna Black clearly has a distinctiveness of her own.

It's refreshing! I love championing the veritable bad boy/and or girl, and Black's Morgan Kingsley series is a virtual horn of plenty. It's got

The beautiful. The bad. The possessed.

Some people worship them. Some people fear them. And some people - like Morgan Kingsley - go up against them toe-to-toe, flesh to flesh, and power against power. An exorcist by trade, Morgan is one of the few humans with an aura stronger than her possessor, even though her demon can tease her body senseless. She's also a woman who has just discovered a shocking truth: everything she once believed about her past,

Sorry to say book two by Jenna Black in this series was an absolute shocker! Pity, because the whole concept of this series a kick ass female exorcist fighting against illegal demons on the mortal plain is very interesting. Unfortunately this one fell below par. I enjoyed the first book but felt it could of been better so I picked up the second book in the vain hope it would improve as the series went along. Wrong. I have the third book in the series but I just promptly put them all in the chari ...more

This was a good follow up to the first. Things aren't getting any easier for Morgan. Lugh is still stuck in her body. After finishing the first book, I had time to think things over. I was starting to wonder just how this series would play out. How far it could possibly go. I'm liking the direction of it, to be honest. This stands out from most of the other recent books I have read.

What I still love about this series, is that Morgan is strong. She's somehow able to control her body but able to l

Jenna Black is your typical writer. Which means she's an "experience junkie." She got her BA in physical anthropology and French from Duke University.

Once upon a time, she dreamed she would be the next Jane Goodall, camping in the bush making fabulous discoveries about primate behavior. Then, during her senior year at Duke, she did some actual research in the field and made this shocking discovery
