Let the games begin…
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 foot 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. . . .
Why did you get this book? Two reasons. One, it’s urban fantasy, so I’m predisposed to buy it. And two, I saw a positive review of it somewhere
Did you enjoy the book? I did. I thought the premise was interesting and I’m curious to see where the author takes the series.
Was the author new to you and would you read something by this author again? She was new to me. She’s got a series with Tor that I’ve not read (I think it’s more paranormal romance). Or maybe I did read the first book in that series. Hm. I think I did and didn’t love it. But I enjoyed this one enough that I’m going to be looking for the sequel this summer because, like I said, I’m really curious to see where the author takes this series. It has great potential.
Are you keeping it or passing it on? I’ve already released it into the book wilderness and shared it with someone else.
Why did you wait so long to read it? Thinking on it, I’m pretty sure I did read the author’s debut release and wasn’t crazy about it, so when this one released, the premise really caught me but I was unsure of giving the author another try. I’m glad I did!
Anything else? I actually read this book while I was in Arizona at a conference. I had many more substantial thoughts about it then, but it’s been two weeks and I’ve forgotten. I knew I should have written this right then. Next month, I’ll write my “review” when it’s still fresh in my head.
Not related to this book, but to the TBR challenge. I really need to read something next month that isn’t urban fantasy 😛
