The Devil's Playground (Morgan Kingsley, Book 5)

The Devil's Playground - Jenna Black It is probably not a great idea to read the last book in a series never having read any of the previous books but although this book wasn’t exactly standalone I didn’t seem to be missing a lot.
The story was pretty average fare with super powers (demons in this case) duking it out with a possible side effect being ‘the end of the world as we know it’ or rather ‘as they know it’ because this is an alternate reality in which Humans are regularly, and for the most willingly, possessed by Demons.
The main protagonist was whiny, self-involved and generally unsympathetic.She was so constantly moaning about how horrible Demons were it made me wonder why she spent most of her time hanging out with them. Her boyfriend was irritating and little pathetic and Lugh, supposedly King of the Demons spent most of his time snuggled at the back of Morgan’s mind admiring her boyfriend’s butt rather than displaying any true leadership qualities.
And although she kept telling me dreadful and cruel these Demons were in the actual story their behaviour was more or less acceptable. To make the concept even less believable I found Raphael, supposedly the most warped and vicious Demon of all, to be the most appealing.

I will not be reading the other books in this series.
