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. . .

Astonishing Well-Written Smexy2

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’ve got to say that Succubus Shadows is my least favorite in the Georgina Kincaid series. WHY? Because there is still too much back and forth with Georgina and Seth. Seth needs to man up and be with Georgina and cut Maddie loose or stay away from Georgina. I’ve never really been a 100% on board with Seth as the main love interest and now that Roman is back I find myself rooting for him. Don’t get me wrong I still enjoyed Succubus Shadows and can’t wait to listen to the last book in the series, Succubus Revealed but a part of me just want’s the series over so that Georgina can get a HEA (and she better!). Much like other books in the series […]

  If you’ll remember in the review about Succubus Blues I mention there being two love interests. We get to see more of the second guy, Seth. He is Georgina’s favorite author that she meant while working in the book store. But the problem is he is human and a good guy. I know that doesn’t sound like a problem but when you’re a succubus like Georgina Kincaid and you try to stay away from the good guys so that you don’t suck their life force then dating is a problem. In Succubus on Top, Georgina is dealing mostly with her relationship with Seth and trying to figure out how to make it work. She meets his family and sad by what she will never have. But […]

 I really enjoyed Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy series and wanted to give her adult writing a try. So during different audio sales I’ve finally purchased the whole series and after having them in my library for a while; I thought it was time to finally start the series. I’m really glad I did! I wasn’t sure what to expect going in and I was pleasantly surprised by the humor. I was picturing a darker listen. Georgina is the first succubus character I’ve read. I was picturing her being a lot like Bo on Lost Girl but that’s not the case. Yeah, she feeds from the energy she takes during sex but she can also shapeshift which is pretty cool. There’s a funny scene at the being […]
