I've read most of the Morgan Kingsley series (I think I missed the book before this one) and have enjoyed them. The Devil's Playground seems
to be a step up from the overall impression of the others, with stronger characterization, an interesting plot, and none of the S&M which spoiled the first book for me.
Morgan is still hosting the King of Demons, Lugh, while the Demon Council try to work out how to defeat Dougal, Lugh's brother and pretender to the throne. These supernatural political maneuvers are interspersed with human stories, such as Morgan's relationship with Brian, Adam and Dom and Dom's new restaurant business, Demon Raphael and his former host Andy, and more.
When reading this series, you can never tell where the story is going to go.
That makes it a far more enjoyable ride. With this book, Morgan begins to become a more rounded person and
- for this reader, at least - more appealing. Lugh is also developing more of a shape, and his interactions with Morgan are interesting.
Those who liked the previous books in the series will obviously enjoy this one, and there are enough explanations in this book for those new to the series to be able to follow what's going on. This is a good series that I enjoy reading; I hope that there are more books to come.
