The Devil Inside

Okay, just finished a novel by Jenne Black called "The Devil Inside."

If you're religious, you might not like this. If you have an open mind, it's a great read.

Morgan Kingsley is an exorcist. A sexy, leather wearing exorcist with an attitude. Her job is to get demons out of people who have been illegally possessed. If she does, she saves a human life. If she doesn't the law executes the human and demon by burning them alive.

She's the best at what she does. She's gets the toughest cases, ones that others won't touch. When she gets called to Topeka Kansas to exoricse a demon from an 11 year old child, Morgan bites off more than she can chew. Just as she's sure the demon is going to transfer to her, and she'll be the one burned alive, something strange happens. The demon retreats. It retreats and chooses destruction instead of possession of Morgan.

From that point on, things get a bit hairy. Morgan has to call in her best friend, another Exorcist, to read her aura and prove she's not possessed. Val declares her demon free, and soon Morgan is free from jail.

But something is wrong. Morgan starts sleep walking and begins to wonder if her friend was wrong. Why wouldn't the demon jump? Why did it retreat? Morgan finds a note in her own handwriting upon waking. "The demon didn't take you, because you're already possessed."

In a world where being possessed means you'll eventually end up a vegetable or worse yet, burned alive for harboring an illegal demon, Morgan's got trouble, big trouble.

Soon Morgan finds herself framed for murder and running for her life. To make matters worse, a radical group has kidnapped her boyfriend and they are sending her tapes of the torture they're inflicting on him... All because of "The devil Inside"

This story smokes. Plenty of heat. Plenty of sex. Not for the faint of heart.
