Trust me or die…That’s the choice Morgan Kingsley, exorcist, is given by the gorgeous rogue demon who’s gotten inside her.

Now that Morgan Kingsley's life is back to being stable, she is investigating a possession. Typically this wouldn't be a big deal. The possessed guy, Tommy, is registered and possessed legally. Only, his parents have legitimate reasons to believe that he would never, ever agree to host a demon. Morgan finds that there is more to this investigation than she could have ever imagined.

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
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
So, I’m continuing my reread of Jenna Black’s Morgan Kingsley series. I still really enjoy this series.
In The Devil’s Due, Morgan is approached by a well-to-do woman who asks Morgan to exorcise her son. This woman is sure her son didn’t agree to be possessed. He was a member of God’s Wrath, which is a demon hate group. They believe in killing the human hosts, along with the demons. Problem is, if Morgan exorcises him, she can be charged with murder ...more
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
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
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.
As Morgan digs deeper and realizes that the boy, a member of God's Wraith (the demon hate group), was actually a part of something else all together, and now, it's getting more personal. With thugs coming to beat her and warn her off a ...more

The individual story for this book is a case of young man who goes from being a part of one of the most virulent anti-demon hate groups to a legal demon host within a span of two weeks. His mother is convinced that he was coerced in some manner.
Not much else to say about th ...more
If you like paranormal stories with strong heroines, and which ones aren’t, then you will enjoy this series. The author does a good job of recapping but really, this series needs to be read in order. I forgot what happened in the previous books except for a general idea, but I understood what was going on in the relationship is well enough without having to re-read the beginning of the series. The one thing about this series that bothers me, is the heroine, Morgan, is so stubborn she is ...more
