Image of The Devil You Know (Morgan Kingsley, Exorcist, Book 2)

Talent on the rise Black is back with the next installment of her forced odd couple Morgan Kingsley series. Viewing events through the heroine's eyes keeps the focus on cryptic events as they are revealed. These demons are a sexy and ruthless bunch, yet Black makes them somewhat sympathetic.

Having come to an uneasy truce with Lugh, the king of the demons, who now resides within her mind, exorcist Morgan Kingsley has other concerns. While Morgan has gotten her formerly demon-possessed brother Andy back, her estrangement from her parents continues. A revelation about Morgan's parentage and a walled-off area in her mind indicate that something traumatic happened when she was a child. Unlocking those memories could shatter everything Morgan believes about herself. Then Lugh and Morgan also learn of a usurper to the crown who has sent a psychotic and deadly hunter to the mortal plain to hunt down and destroy Lugh.
