The Devil's Due by Jenna Black

"Things aren't going very well for exorcist Morgan Kingsley. She's been betrayed by her boyfriend of her dreams, her brother has been repossessed, and she's unable to escape from the hunky demon who shares her body. All Morgan wants is to curl up and avoid reality for a while. But she can't. A woman named Claudia Brewster seeks her services. During the brief time that Claudia has been on a cruise, her son, Tommy, has changed from an invective-spewing member of an anti-demon society to a happy little demon host. Claudia smells a rat - as does Morgan - but all the paperwork looks legal. That is, until Morgan begins digging up the secrets of Tommy's past and finds herself deep in another deadly conspiracy..."

This is the third book in the Morgan Kingsley book and it's a series that's growing on me more with each book. The plot of this book sees a lot more of Morgan doing her normal day job, something we haven't seen that much of to this point. But it doesn't take long for her 'regular' job to get mixed up in the problems of her hosting demon king Lugh and his brother (back in the demon realm) wanting him dead.

There was a lot going on in this book and it wasn't that easy to keep track of it all at times, and what linked in to what, but it all came clearer by the end. There were some good twists and the personal things going on between Morgan and her team were handled well and gave really good insight to their characters and why they do some of the things they do, adding to the story. Not a series that is a top favourite, but it's got good characters and a well thought out plot. A series well worth reading.

Rating: 8/10
