"Succubus Blues" (Georgina Kincaid Series), By Richelle Mead

The title of this book got the best of me with this book. I’ve seen TV shows of Succubi and I’ve read books about Incubi, but I never really knew what they were. I knew they lived off of the lifeforce of humans and that sex was described as being over the top with one. However, this book gave me a whole different perspective. I really thought this book would have had more erotic-ness to it, just by the nature of a succubus. However, it hardly touched on sex at all…It alluded to her needing sex, but there wasn’t any graphic sex in this book.

With that said, the book really was pretty good. Georgina Kincaid is a Succubus, but she doesn’t like living off of good wholesome people. So, instead she hunts low-lifes or those deserving of bad things. She really can’t complain too much though. There are worse jobs in hell and the perks of being a succubus are kind of cool. We are introduced to all different types of immortals in this story. We have vampires, demons, imps, a succubus, angels, and more. Many are Georgina’s close friends.

I love the fact that she can shape shift into anything or into anyone that she wants to and she can get men to do anything she wants. Although Georgina works for a demon, she’s really not evil. She is a caring person who sold her soul to the devil and was made a succubus. So she still has much of her humanity. She falls in love but can’t have the relationship she wants because she literally sucks the life out of the guys she’s dated.

Throughout the story, we begin to see immortals dying. Yep, some immortals can die. Actually, they are killed by a mysterious person. Georgina just can’t keep from digging in and looking for whomever or whatever it is that is killing these immortals. Of course, at a certain point the story becomes predictable and you can blatantly see who the killer is, but it was still worth the read. I give it 3.5 stars and hope the next book, “Succubus on Top” (“Succubus Nights” in UK). I did enjoy the plot enough to keep reading and by the end of the book, I wanted to see what the next book brought to the series.
