I very much enjoyed the first two books in Jenna Black's "Morgan Kingsley" series, and The Devil's Due continues in just as enjoyable a manner. Although the overall story of Morgan's life doesn't particularly move on (she's in the same overall position, with regard to Lugh, when we finish the book as when we start it), some of the side characters' lives change significantly - and perhaps more enjoyably, we learn more about these other characters.

Black excels at keeping the reader's interest, somehow making the paranormal aspects of these stories feel very real and - well, 'normal' - for the characters. In The Devil's Due, Morgan continues her role of keeping her demon Lugh safe from his brother Dougal, trying to learn to live with him, working out her relationship with her boyfriend, Brian (a rather dull and unappealing character), and dealing with her ambivalent feelings toward Adam Smith. Morgan is also hired to look into the demon possession of a man known to be utterly against demons, and the more she looks into events, the less adds up. Might the possession of Tommy have more significance than just a straight illegal demon possession?

There's mention again here of the BDSM club but far less graphic description than in the previous books, which perhaps makes this a more comfortable read. Morgan's own brash nature is also toned down a little as she learns to consider others as well as herself. She's still a very appealing character who seems to bumble her way through very complex situations, trying to do the best with the hand she's been dealt. Those who enjoyed the previous books will certainly like this one.
