Morgan Kingsley is back in Jenna Black’s latest release “Speak of the Devil”. This series is one of the most original paranormals I’ve read. Black’s demons are different from any other you’ll read about and their interactions with humans will leave you wondering the next time you run into that certain someone at work (or maybe that’s just me).
Exorcist extraordinairre Morgan Kingsley is back. This time Morgan is having either the worst run of bad luck…or someone is out to destroy her life. First she’s suspended by the Board of Exorcists, next she’s being sued for pretty much every penny she’ll EVER earn, then doctored photos delivered to her significant other cause a harsh break, her car is pretty much destroyed, and now she’s being framed for murder! Just who in the hell did she piss off so badly?
Morgan is a heroine that’s sometimes hard to like. She’s bad-tempered, untrusting, argumentative, and pretty much a total witch…most of the time. But then she exposes a tiny piece of her soul and the irritation seems to melt away. Morgan’s also got a plethora of hot hunks in her life. From Lugh the Demon King to Brian her hot lawyer boyfriend; not to mention Adam, Dominic, Saul, and Raphael. Poor Morgan (yes, that was definitely in a catty voice).
With each of Jenna Black’s new books in this series, I get caught up immediately in Morgan’s life. With all the reading I do, sometimes it’s hard for me to keep differing series straight, but this one is singular enough that I’ve never had that problem. The romance/sex in this series at times rides a fine line between romance and erotica, but never seems to actually tiptoe over. Do I want to be Morgan Kingsley? Heck NO. Do I want to read more about her life? Absolutely!
