Format: Paperback
I'm not going to go into the synopsis of this book, as the first reviewer has done this brilliantly, and amazon are getting better and better at providing enough info about books to entice buyers, but what an absolutely excellent way in which to end this series.

I kind of didn't think that there would be a HEA to this series, IM with demons and humans co-existing under not exactly ideal rules, and with Morgan's issues with trust, I thought we'd be losing certain characters and that there would be winners on only one side, so I LOVED how the author concluded things. Even the mostly digruntled Andy (Morgan's brother and fellow demon host) came out of his apathy and fought for the right reasons, and I was so surprised at Raphael coming through for his brother, and the revelations that his son, Saul, hating him did in fact cause him pain, as well as how much Morgan finally opened up - to both Lugh and Brian. Morgan and Brian, that's a couple I did not think was going to last after she continued keeping things from him and trying to end things with him to keep him safe, and whilst it's not all cut and dried for them, I was so pleased to see that they were already part way into their HEA. As for Adam, we saw a totally different side to him, one that endeared him to me, and due to the changes in him, we saw changes in Dominic. I LOVED what Adam did for him to allow him to fulfil his dream, and the tender moments they had (no explosive S&M sex as in the prev novels though, mores the pity!).

There were several twists that I could not see coming, but boy, did they work out perfectly, and I was totally happy with how the series ended. Sorry that it had to end - there's nowhere for it to go now, unless the author creates tales about Lugh openly ruling his kingdom from afar, with humans being more savvy and mistrusting of demons, but not sorry at how she did it.

Format: Paperback
I've read most of the Morgan Kingsley series (I think I missed the book before this one) and have enjoyed them. 'The Devil's Playground' seemed to be a step up from the overall impression of the others, with more characterisation, an interesting plot and none of the S&M which spoiled the first book for me.

Morgan is still hosting the King of Demons, Lugh, whilst the Demon Council try to work out how to defeat Dougal, Lugh's brother and pretender to the throne. These supernatural political manoeuvres are interspersed with human stories such as Morgan's relationship with Brian, Adam and Dom and Dom's new restaurant business, Demon Raphael and his former host Andy, and more.

When reading this series you can never tell where the story is going to go and that makes it a far more enjoyable ride. With this book I felt that Morgan was beginning to become a more rounded person and, for this reader at least, more appealing. Lugh is also developing more of a shape and his interactions with Morgan are interesting.

Those who liked the previous books in the series will obviously enjoy this one, and I think there are enough explanations in this book for those new to the series to be able to follow what's going on. This is a good series that I enjoy reading and I hope that there are more books to come.

By Sarah (Feeling Fictional) TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 21 Dec. 2010
Format: Paperback
Please be aware that this is the 5th & final book in the Morgan Kingsley series so although my review won't contain spoilers for The Devil's Playground it may contain spoilers for previous books. If you're new to the series its one I'd recommend reading in order starting with book 1 The Devil Inside.

Things have been going far too well for Morgan and the other members of Lugh's council over the last couple of months - they should have known it was too good to be true. When Shae (the owner of The Seven Deadlies nightclub) approaches Morgan to warn her about an unusual increase in demons crossing over into the human world the council immediately suspect Dougal is up to something. Dougal has been trying to take over Lugh's throne but why does he feel the need to increase demon presence on earth? They need to find out what he is up to and try to figure out a way to stop him before he can do any more damage.

I have to say that this series has been one that I've had mixed feelings about from the start, it's always felt like a series I should love but there has always been something that kept it from becoming a favorite. Morgan has always been quite an annoying character but I was pleased to see that the changes in her that started in Speak of the Devil have continued in The Devil's Playground. She still isn't perfect but she has come a long way from the first book and I'm liking her a lot more now than I ever did before.

I still love Lugh and was pleased with the amount of time we got to spend with him in this book although I have to confess I'd have liked to have seen things develop further with him & Morgan. I've been routing for him since near the beginning of the series!

I've thoroughly enjoyed this series. Each book has been well written and has contained the just the right amount of action, emotion and suspense with a kick-ass feminine lead. I do have to say this book didn't quite live up to the high standards by other Morgan Kingsley books but I still feel disloyal to such a wonderful author going as low as four stars in my rating. But I feel it would be disrespectful to those genuine five stars to rate any higher. I've actually found myself quite torn on my feelings over this book because judging by the finales for other series' I've enjoyed I expected a gut wrenching finish. This book just didn't hit the spot for me and I feel a little deflated.

That being said Jenna Black is a top author and I would highly recommend this series to all fans of the supernatural. Well worth the price.
