Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Being a succubus sounds pretty glamorous. Shape-shifting, killer wardrobe, what's not to like? But Georgina Kincaid's life gets complicated when an unknown entity "helpfully" begins killing her immortal adversaries.

Synopsis:

Succubus (n.) An alluring, shape-shifting demon who seduces and pleasures mortal men. Pathetic (adj.) A succubus with great shoes and no social life. See: Georgina Kincaid. When it comes to jobs in hell, being a succubus seems pretty glamorous. A girl can be anything she wants, the wardrobe is killer, and mortal men will do anything just for a touch. Granted, they often pay with their souls, but why get technical? But Seattle succubus Georgina Kincaid's life is far less exotic. Her boss is a middle-management demon with a thing for John Cusack movies. Her immortal best friends haven't stopped teasing her about the time she shape-shifted into the Demon Goddess getup complete with whip and wings. And she can't have a decent date without sucking away part of the guy's life. At least there's her day job at a local bookstore-free books; all the white chocolate mochas she can drink; and easy access to bestselling, sexy writer, Seth Mortensen, aka He Whom She Would Give Anything to Touch but Can't. But dreaming about Seth will have to wait. Something wicked is at work in Seattle's demon underground. And for once, all of her hot charms and drop-dead one-liners won't help because Georgina's about to discover there are some creatures out there that both heaven and hell want to deny.

Oh Georgina, you are one of my new favorite heroines. You are full of complexity, hidden secrets and bring with you a world that makes my brain go all happy and mushy.

Hmm? Oh, hello there. Don't mind me; I was just visiting with the incredibly attractive and hilarious Georgina Kincaid, unenthusiastic succubus.

First introduced in SUCCUBUS BLUES, the first in the Georgina Kincaid series by Richelle Mead, Georgina has to overcome some crazy initial hurdles. She's a succubus, although like many of us, she hates her job. Daylighting as a bookstore manager, it's this work that really gets her passionate. Working with people on her non glowing days and drinking as much coffee as she can get her hands on while being surrounded by books makes her one happy girl.

Unfortunately, succubi aren't known for being great bookworms.

When someone starts killing the other immortals in Georgina's life, her whole world goes chaotic. Trying to investigate the murders while navigating a precarious love life surrounding two interested men, Georgina has to make tough choices. These choices, however, could mean the difference between life and death for her and those she loves.

I absolutely loved this book. I found Ms. Mead's writing to be fantastic and completely hilarious at times. In fact, I would probably have to use both hands to count the number of times I laughed out loud while reading this story.

I received some pretty interesting looks, too.

Georgina is a completely loveable character and not in that, cute and cuddly teddy bear sort of way. She is the kind of woman I would love to catch a late night chick flick with. She is spunky, intelligent, and kind. She preys on the dirtbags of society, unwilling to steal the life force from good guys. This is partially the reason why she doesn't date and hasn't had a good relationship in a while. When she's thrust in the middle of two guys she's has interest in, it's anybody's guess what's going to happen next.

I highly recommend this to any fans of Urban Fantasy. Georgina is a fabulous character, the world is fantastic and beautifully developed and the plot is great nd had me hopping on the edge of my seat. Even the side characters increased my curiosity and got my adrenaline pumping. One of the best aspects of the book was that Georgina's background was slowly woven in through the story. At the end of the book some of our questions are answered while more are formed. Ms. Mead is a master of developing a robust story line with fantastic series potential.

Georgia Kincaid is another strong female character in another paranormal fantasy book, and yet... she's different. Being a succubus living among humans isn't easy, but Georgia tries her best. She even has a "normal" job in a bookstore.
Richele Mead creates a pretty original version of otherworldly beings living within our world. It's kind of nice to have a protaganist who doesn't always take the moral high ground and occaisionally hangs with demons and angels.
An enjoyable read that will leave you wanting more.
