Morgan is back, and she’s still possessed. In the aftermath of her house burning down, and her father’s death the last thing Morgan wants to do is trust, but that’s exactly what she has to do if she wants to survive. The demon king, Lugh, who’s in residence has already invaded her body, mind and dreams is now prying into her sex life, and as he pulls her further in a power struggle that could be devastating to both humans and demons alike there is no escaping.
Finally Lugh gets a bigger chunk of the action. He’s always been talked about a lot, but for a King, he hasn’t been very present. Getting some page time definitely picks up the stories pace, and allows readers to get to know Lugh, not just everyone else’s opinions of him. Morgan still the driving character, but Lugh is finally really coming into his own, now if he could just push Brian out of the story.
He seems to be the one character that doesn’t fit, whose problems don’t further the overall plot, but instead hinder it. Again some great writing with Adam and Morgan, he’s a little rough around the edges, but he’s the go to guy. Plus he keeps Morgan on her toes, and keeps her snark on the right level.
The plot is much tighter in this one than the last, it doesn’t stray much. And the arcs seem to be tying together quite nicely. It was a quick read, and the series continues to build upon the previous. New readers could jump in at this point, but there is plenty that they’d have missed.
