Succubus Blues by:Richelle Mead

Publication Date: August 2010

Overview: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. . .

My thoughts: I have been a fan of Richelle's since I first found Vampire Academy at Target all those years ago. I saw this book at the library and decided to pick it up and give it a try as well. I loved it. I don't recommend this series for younger teens due to the sex and stuff but really you should pick it up and try it as well.
Anyway, Georgina's steals souls...usually of perverts...she works for good not evil. Which really these days is hard to come by. She was once is love and married and made mistakes and lost her husband and chose to become what she is. Now she helps get rid of the evil in the world.
Someone is out to get her and her friends.....she doesn't realize who until it is almost ot late. Unluckily for her it is someone she has been dating. But lucky for her it isn't the one she really wants.
My rating: 5 stars

  1. I have yet to read anything by her but I'm going to have to fix that really soon.

    Thanks for the great review, glad to see this series is just as big of a hit as her VA series for teens.
