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.

Meet succubus Georgina Kincaid:


Georgina Kincaid is a succubus, an immortal ''creature'' that feeds on other people's vital energy in order to survive. Most of the time, she does that during sex. Except for that detail about her, Georgina is a charismatic and easy going woman that works in a library. She's in fact quite an interesting and entertaining character.

The story kicks when an immortal powerful vampire is mysteriously and unexpectedly killed after having an argument with our
This is how I feel about this book…

When I first started reading this I thought “Thank the good lord” because reviewers whom I follow and adore all rated it highly. Also, I’ve been reading far too many YA-Contemporary/YA-PRs lately and this seemed like it would provide me with a much needed break. I thought it would clear my intellectual pallet of the sugar it’s been fed these past two weeks. Don’t get me wrong, sugar can be a good thing. Sometimes it’s just the pick me up I need. But too much of

I really enjoyed this book and I enjoyed that it, in a number of areas, was brave enough to break away from the stereotype that the paranormal urban romance genre is famous for.

On one hand, I enjoyed the plot, story and characters. It was paced well, easy to read, enjoyable. The characters were fresh, original in some regards and likable.

The great "reveal" was painfully easy to guess and I had suspected it from the beginning, but I feel that the writing style and characters made up for this lack

This gif represents EXACTLY how I felt about this book... I was eager to start it, I found it a little tough to get into though, I struggled (with convincing myself to keep going) midway through, but at the end everything started happening really fast and suddenly I was finished it lol

I read this book on several glowing recommendations from trusted readers who compared it to the Fever and Night Huntress series (both of which are among my fav PNR/UFs so I was pretty excited to start it.

You know you don't like a book when you would rather fold laundry than pick it up again.

As I was struggling with this book yesterday, I was thinking, "Maybe I have some dishes to do or something? What chores can I do?" Not a good sign.

**Some mild spoilers ahead**

Most people love this book so feel free to ignore me. In all fairness, I had read some really good urban fantasy books right before this one so I was coming off a huge UF high when I picked this up. And it did not measure up. At all.

I read Succubus Blues first over 2 years ago and liked it A LOT. Since then Mead embarked on a money-making trip and managed to completely ruin Vampire Academy for me. The latest Succubus book was meh as well. (Her Dark Swan books are not even worth mentioning IMO.) I started questioning myself - were Mead's books ever good? Or I simply liked them because this series was one of my first encounters with fresh then genre of urban fantasy?

Good news, Succubus Blues is still great entertainm

WARNING! The following review is not supposed to make any sense. If, through an unholy miracle, it does make sense then you should consult a doctor at once. You might have an evil cotton candy monster living in your brain.

After a failed attempt with The Blood That Bonds, Anzu decides to go for something else in the Urban Fantasy genre. Since she is such a sadistic person she goes for Succubus Blues, another book she was sure she will hate. Deep inside she was still hoping to be proven wrong.

This is a book I added back when I first joined GRs. I had read it at a time when I was just getting into paranormal romance and urban fantasy. I had not read anything else by Richelle Mead. So this review is way after the fact, but I still remember it fairly well, so thought I'd write a brief review.

I won't recap it because you can get that info anywhere. It's basically a succubus who isn't evil (she's decaffeinated) and about her romantic life and her skirmishes with other demon types who are

I almost want to up-rate this to a 5.

So very different the second time around. The palpable silences, the knowing looks passed between Carter and Jerome, Carter's odd, quizzical looks at Georgie, Jerome's pregnant pauses... The book in itself was predictable the first time around, but once you've k

I am giving Succubus Blues a higher rating the second time after realizing that the first time I read the book, I had come down off a high from one of my favorites and was way too hard on this one. Even though I enjoyed SB the first time and did consider it to be about a 3 to 3.5, I enjoyed it much more the second time around after knowing the series and characters better (and was able to skim the world building trap of book 1). 4 plus st

Well, you're in luck.
Oodles of it in these books.

But aside from all the glorious filth, there is also much laughter to be had with this series.
Once again we are introduced to another of Richelle Meads' baddass heroines, Georgina. Who manages to rid the city of various demons, evils, etc. whilst maintaining an equally baddass sex life.

I ask you. What more do we need?

Georgina Kincaid, Succubus, is leading a lonely life having traded her mortality for eternal youth and beauty and let’s just not get into the reasons why. In order to survive she gets the life force out of humans that she’s having sex with, but being a Succubus with a conscience she only does the low lives, hating the idea of damning the souls of good men. She is unable of forming meaningful romantic relationships with men that she actually likes since even a kiss would suck a considerable amoun
Urban fantasy books are always difficult for me. Whenever I see a shelf of those in a store, I look at a few titles and hope something will look interesting. They seldomly do, because all these books are the same to me: Hot heroine with at least one guy on every finger. (I blame this on Anita Blake, who I liked, at first, but after a while I got so bored with her books and, I'm glad I did because, apparently, I stopped reading before the completely messed up books came.)

But back to the sassy her
The first book introducing readers to the world of Georgina Kincaid is just good old fashioned urban fantasy fun. The world building is not intense nor is it complicated. The mystery is easy to figure out and many of the characters act in a predictable way. But damn, this is the most fun I have had reading an urban fantasy book in a long time. The story is told from the point of view of Georgina and she is a succubus with a conscience (supposedly). She loves sex, loves male attention, but misses ...more

I liked this book a lot more than I imagined I would. I'm not really a hardcore urban fantasy fan, I much prefer series like this with the softer, chick-lit style writing complete with witty dialogue and hot immortal men. Georgina Kincaid is a very likeable heroine, not a pretentious do-gooder but nice enough that you care about what happens to her.

This first novel in the series is full of steamy sex, hilariously quotable writing and a supernatural mystery to form the background plot. What more

Absolutely loved this! I predicted the twist really early on, but that didn't hinder my experience in any way. Can't wait to read the sequel!

Oh man. I read this book in about 5 hours. I was expecting a vapid "hi, I have a lot of sex, watch me boink all these men" kind of story. At first, I honestly thought it would be, when Georgie started to talk about her designer shoes (note to authors: women don't care about designer shoes as much as you think. Stop mentioning them!), but I really got hooked when we, the readers, meet Seth. After that, I couldn't put this book down.

I don't really have a lot of criticism for this book. The cover i

Actual Rating: 3.5/5 stars

“We all have moments of weakness. It’s how we recover from them that really counts.”

Georgina did something terrible in her life that she made a deal with the devil to be a succubus in order for the people she wronged to forget about her. And they did. Their memories was totally wiped out.

I don't know what is a succubus though. So I went on Google to search what a succubus was and they are like immortal, evil creatures who seduces men in their sleep to absorve energi
Already a huge fan of Mead's Vampire Academy, I wasn't sure how I'd take her Urban Fantasy series since I've never been a huge fan of it really. Leave it to Richelle Mead to change all that and have this sensational masterpiece hit my favorites shelf!
I don't know how Mead does it, like the first VA book it was a slow go in the beginning and this one was the same way for me, but then out of know where your hooked to ever word, every character and it was impossible to put down.

This was the first book I ever read by Richelle Mead and I loved it instantly.
Succubus Blue is one fantastic book. It is full of witty characters who you will fall in love with, deliciously hot romance and plenty of twists and turns you never see coming.

I started the Elemental Assassins series not too long ago, but I’m still not enthusiastic about it three books in. So, I decided to try my luck with a different UF series. Turns out I already had Succubus Blues on my Kindle and in audio from a few years ago. Total fate! I decided to go with audio, which was a great decision. I hadn’t even made it 20% in before I knew this would be the next series I’ll indulge in. The bonus is the series is complete, so I have five more installments to enjoy at
Succubus Blues is about Georgina Kincaid, a very reluctant succubus. She was born human but traded her soul to a devil to pay for a mistake she made. Ever since she became a succubus she hasn't really liked it. She's good at the seducing and sucking their life energy part, but she doesn't enjoy it. She's been sticking to sucking life energy only from souls of bad or sinful people. She's managed to make a few friends along the way however, and she's currently posing as a human working at a local ...more

I liked it, okay? It reminded me of The Lightning Thief, except the narrator of Succubus Blues knows from the very beginning that she is not mortal. In fact, Georgina Kincaid works for the forces of evil, which is actually a pretty complicated premise in my opinion. We are expected to identify with her even though she has spent centuries seducing men in order to claim their souls for Satan. Because it is downplayed and she has been in a funk for a few decades, we do accept her for the most part, ...more

What a thril! I thought I couldn't love Richelle Mead any more but after starting her Adult novel, I can say my love has most definitely increased!

I'm not a big sucker for urban fantasy but Succubus Blues was exactly what I had been needing. We follow Georgina, a succubus who can alter her shape and, when she gets involved with someone, she takes a way a bit of their souls. Kincaid is not only a goddess, but also a glorious main character - she
I’m not an avid reader of urban fantasy, but I am a fan of Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy. So after coming across several rave reviews by my fellow avid readers here on GR, I decided to finally give the Georgina Kincaid Succubus series a try. Surprise... surprised... I enjoyed it much!

Overall, I came to really like Georgina Kincaid and her narrative was captivating and engaging. She’s sassy, unapologetically bold about her choices and an overall strong character. I wanted to know more about her

Georgina Kincaid is a succubus. Has been for, well, quite a long time. There are a few perks to giving up her mortality: immortality, of course, and the ability to shape shift her physical appearance and her clothes - always handy. Her boss, Jeremy, is an upper level demon who likes John Cusack movies so much he's opted to look like the actor too. Since she absorbs energy from any men she gets intimate with, she can't have an ordinary relationship with a human - ah yes, she may be a lower level ...more
Paranormal romance/urban fantasy thingy that I enjoyed in spite of some rather obvious flaws. Namely: the writing’s only okay (no first person narrator should ever say “as I noted earlier” unless they’re narrating an academic text), the identity of the villain is obvious pretty much from the moment he’s introduced, and the ending’s kind of an anti-climactic cop out. I was also kind of bummed that in a novel about angels and demons, no one seemed particularly good or evil; there’s a second-rate C ...more
