“Exorcism isn’t a job, it’s a calling—and a curse. Just ask Morgan Kingsley, a woman who has a stronger aura than any demon. Or so she thought. Now, in a pair of black leather pants and a kick-ass tattoo, Morgan is heading back to Philadelphia after a nasty little exorcism—and her life is about to be turned upside down…by the demon that’s gotten inside her.
Not just any demon. Six feet five inches of dark, delicious temptation, this one is to die for—that is, if he doesn’t get Morgan killed first. Because while some humans vilify demons and others idolize them, Morgan’s demon is leading a war of succession no human has ever imagined. For a woman trying to live a life, and hold on to the almost-perfect man, being possessed by a gorgeous rebel demon will mean a wild ride of uninhibited thrills, shocking surprises, and pure, unadulterated terror…”

Who would have thought exorcism could be sexy? Well, not exorcism per say, but Morgan Kingsley, the best exorcist in the US can definitely hold her own when it comes to sex appeal. Jenna Black’s series gives us a new take on the exorcist/demon deal and I absolutely love it.
In Morgan’s world is all about who has the strongest aura and as long as you have one, you’ll be fine against demonic fiends. That’s the basic rule Morgan has been living with and one day after a routine exorcism goes array, Morgan finds out that things are not so simple.
There is a civil war crewing in hell and Lugh, the leader of the most “humanist” party has done the impossible and possessed Morgan. The thing is that her aura is so strong that he is not in charge, so he can only really communicate with her when she is asleep.
I just love this series, Jenna has taken a pretty cool and different direction with the Demon angle and it just simply works! A while back I did a Top 5 favorite book couples and Lugh and Morgan were on it. For two people that have never actually been close in person, it’s amazing how much chemistry them both have and you can’t help but wonder if they are ever going to have a chance to get together.
Besides that interesting relationship, on these 4 books we also follow Morgan and her human boyfriend and her struggle to keep him and avoid getting him too involved in demon politics. There are also a couple great secondary characters and my favorite are the M/M couple Adam and Dominic, they bring something extra to the series and you can’t help but root for them =)
Morgan is not an easy woman to love, she is stubborn and down right bitchy a lot of the times, but she is also loyal, strong and capable of learning from her mistakes and for those reason I think she is a great leading lady.
If you are an Urban Fantasy junkie like me, you need to check out this series!
