In ‘The Devil you know’, the series first sequel kicks off with problems, exploding in all directions - personal, physical, emotional, it’s probably there. Hosts of issues for our Urban Fantasy host, Morgan, who is still housing the amusing and powerful demon Lugh.
She is again in trouble as one of the King’s enemies is trying to hunt down and destroy whomever the demon is possessing. And remember, possessing is using in the loosest term possible as it’s different for this series than what we usually think of when we heard the word possession.

There’s a lot going on from many sides – breaking off with Brian (drumroll or eyeroll?), Adam and Dominic still having fun embarrassing her (…), Raphael’s return (uh oh), her brother Adam’s recovery and the aftermath (meh), and Morgan finding her mind has a blank spot in it that even Lugh can’t penetrate to find what’s hidden beneath (du du dum.)

Just as good as the first, I’m still in love with this different twist of a series. A pity it’s not higher in rating and popularity, but I suppose different tastes is what makes the book world spin around.
Again with reading glee I’m delighted with an intense villain, high stakes, lots of dark themes, sexy wickedness from several of the key players, humor, and never quite knowing what’s going to happen next.

I’ll admit Morgan isn’t the best character in the world – she’s actually one of my least favorites, so it’s funny it’s told through her POV. She really is too moody and uptight. Still her world is fun to be in, especially because of the charming Lugh dreams, the darkly teasing Adam, and the unusual battles and crisis she must face.

It sometimes borders on Paranormal Romance over Urban Fantasy because of the emphasis on Brian and their relationship woes (this admittedly grows thin), but cools down unrealistic love interest types. Some are turned off by the bits of BDSM and alternative lifestyle stuff, but it affects me in pleasing, twistedly good ways instead.

Jenna Black obviously had fun writing this world. It’s unique structures, the obstacles are tough and wars fierce. Oodles of mental gymnastics and emotional ambushes accompany all the excitement to make me fall in love with the series even more than the first did.

Highly recommended for Urban fantasy buffs.

Morgan learns more about her family history. Makes up with her brother Andy as well as Brian. She's learning how to live a little better with Lugh. Wonder what's up next? ( )

Morgan is back and trying to figure out what happened in her past while trying to avoid being murdered (and thereby kill Lugh who has taken up residence within her) by the evil demons trying to take over the throne. I wish I had more story regarding her life as an exorcist. The story moved along fairly well and didn't drag too much, but when I looked back at it, not a lot actually happened. Yes, she may have discovered what happened to her when she was young and she avoided being murdered and she even grew a little by allowing Brian to be a part of her life even with the dangers involved - and I enjoyed reading the book. BUT, not a lot actually happened. I will read the next one, maybe there's more forward movement in the story. ( )

I feel that this was just as good as the first book. Kept me interested the whole time I was reading. Morgan is still possessed and her life still sucks. I love the characters and the way they interact with one another. I'll definitely be getting the third book. ( )

Not as great as the first book but I still loved the characters. In this second book in the series Morgan is still possessed by the demon king, Lugh and she has decided to break up with Brian because she feels she is a danger to him. She is still the kick ass heroine that I have come to love but she is a little (and I do mean a little) bit better about thinking before she acts.

With the help of Adam, Dominic and her brother Andrew (who is no longer possessed by Rapheal) she must unravel the mystery of who her biological dad is (and what REALLY happened in the hospital when she was a child). Enter in the new threat to Morgan/Lugh's life a psychotic demon, Der Jager, who has been let loose by Lugh's brother, Dougal. Der Jager's job is to figure out where Lugh is because as far as they know Lugh has switched hosts. Once again Morgan must fight for her life (and Lugh's) otherwise a full scale demon war will happen. Morgan's interaction with Adam is slowly beginning to change her views on demons. She has learned so much that now nothing is black and white anymore.

I gave it 3 stars because it didn't come close to how interesting the first book was. I do hope that the third book is much more interesting! ( )
