In Georgina Kincaid, succubus and she-demon, #1 New York Timesbestselling author Richelle Mead has created one of her most enticing characters. But with a shot at love, and maybe even redemption, is the ultimate seductress finally going soft? Like hell she is. . .

Georgina Kincaid has had an eternity to figure out the opposite sex, but sometimes they still surprise her. Take Seth Mortensen. The man has risked his soul to become Georgina's boyfriend. Still, with Lucifer for a boss, Georgina can't just hang up her killer heels and settle down to domestic bliss. In fact, she's being forced to transfer operations. . .to Las Vegas.

The City of Sin is a dream gig for a succubus, but Georgina's allies are suspicious. Why are the powers-that-be so eager to get her away from Seattle and from Seth? Georgina is one of Hell's most valuable assets, but if there's any way out of the succubus business she plans to take it, no matter how much roadkill she leaves behind. She just hopes the casualties won't include the one man she's risking everything for. . .

Richelle Mead did a great job of sprinkling clues throughout the Georgina Kincaid series and with Succubus Revealed we get the big pay off.

Through the whole series we’ve seen Georgina’s long life through flashbacks. While these have been fun and entertaining they set up the grand finale to Georgina’s HEA. She’s been a succubus doomed to repeat the same mistakes over and over. At some point she has to learn from her mistakes and make different choices.

In Succubus Revealed we see Georgina out of the bookstore and working as an elf at the mall with drunken Santa included. She is missing her friends at the bookstore and not sure what she’s going to do as far as a new job. That is until she gets an unexpected transfer order from hell. She’s Las Vegas bound, a succubus’s wet dream. But how will she and Seth keep their relationship going? Seth can’t leave Seattle just yet and Georgina can’t say no to the move.

Georgina goes the Vegas to meet with her new boss and get the lay of the land. Everything in Vegas could not be more perfect from her best incubus friend to getting a dancing job as a showgirl. It’s all too perfect (if it’s too good to be true…). Which throws up all kinds of red flags but in true Georgina fashion she doesn’t see them. But thanks to her roommate, Roman, he’s on the case.

I think that Mead gave Georgina a great HEA and did a wonderful job of closing up the loose ends of the series in the finale. If you’re looking for a PNR/UF series with snark, mystery, romance and some smoking sex then you need to give Georgina Kincaid a try.

Elisabeth Rodgers did an outstanding job on the narration throughout the whole series. I will check out more of her narration work.

I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two chilled cats in the Deep South.

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.

While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).

      No withdrawals. I’m glad it ended when it did. I think if there had been more books I would have gotten bored with the series.
