"I really like the characters in this book"

Demons are feared by some but worshipped by others. Morgan Kingsley is one of the people who goes face to face with them, and as an exorcist she knows how to fight them better than anyone. However she is also a woman with a secret. She is actually possessed herself and nobody can tell. She didn't ask to have the demon put inside of her but Lugh is there and even though he can't take full control of her Morgan is still stuck doing what he needs her to do.

Morgan is the main player in the demon war that is starting but right now she is busy with her family. It seems that she was experimented on when she was a teenager and there are more secrets that she needs to uncover about her past. Will she find out who used her and what they did to her? Or will The Jäger, a rogue sociopath hunter, find her first and kill her and Lugh? Whatever happens, Morgan knows in her heart that she isn't going to like some of the truths she hears.

The Devil You Know is the second book in the Morgan Kinsley series. The Devil Inside really took my breathe away so I couldn't wait for this sequel to be released. After finishing this one though I have to say that I did enjoy it but I also have to say that it wasn't better than the first book. It is a great second book and was a great read but I felt it had a few things missing that the first book had. For instance, this part didn't have as much heat in it and also Morgan doesn't work as an exorcist very much except for a passing reference now and again.

That aside I really like the characters in this book and the storyline is well thought out and is obviously taking the reader somewhere deeper. It is however a little overrun with male characters and Morgan being the only female in the mix. All in all this book was informative and I am sure it has paved the way for more action and demons in The Devil's Due, which will be out later this year.

He's a stranger. He's a lover. He's everything in between.

The beautiful. The bad. The Possessed.

Some people worship them. Some people fear them. And some people—like Morgan Kingsley—go up against them toe-to-toe, flesh-to-flesh, and power against power. An exorcist by trade, Morgan is one of the few humans with an aura stronger than her possessor, even though her demon can tease her body senseless. She's also a woman who has just discovered a shocking truth: Everything she once believed about her past, her identity, may have been a lie…

With a family secret exploding around her and with a full-scale demon war igniting, Morgan is a key player in an unsettled world. Then a rogue, sociopathic demon enters her life with a bang. His name is The Hunter. And since she is the prey, Morgan has only one choice: to hunt The Hunter down—no matter what heartbreaking truths she uncovers on the way…
