Ever since exorcist Morgan Kingsley found out that she was possessed and hosting demon king Lugh, her life has been on a slippery slope of suck. Not only is she getting her pants sued off her by a family whose son’s court ordered exorcism went awry, which many do, she’s being suspended by the Exorcism Board, her insurance still hasn’t cut her a check for her burnt up house and it looks like she’s being set up for murder. Poor girl can’t catch a break.
But the posse is back, to help out. Bad boy Adam, is using his brains and muscles to get the job done and keep Morgan, and therefore Lugh safe. And, too nice trying too hard to prove he’s tough enough boyfriend Brian, is still around and still a nuisance. Morgan herself is a little too needy in this one, she’s second guessing herself, and Brian, and really everyone around her. Trust is still the ultimate issue, and Morgan still lets her emotions rule her, which leads her to act overly impulsive and regretful.
Well paced and with a nice blend of continuity and ingenuity, it’s plenty tense, and the plotting remains consistent. However the overall struggle between Lugh and Dougal seems to have been put on the backburner as Morgan’s problems take the stage.
