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.
I really should have had more faith.

Georgina is definitely my kind of gal. She's a sassy little minx and I guess that's needed, you know, since she has to work for hell and all. But even with her job having ups and downs, she still handles everything quite well with quick wit and quirky habits. I find it utterly adorable when it comes to her love of books and her logic while reading them. I also loved that she teaches and loves to dance. Her past is so sad and haunting and I was completely absorbed in her memories during that time. I sympathize with the fact that she can't really ever have a real romantic connection again, but through it all, she still remains...Georgina.

The men in her life? And I do mean all of them. Hugh, Doug, Jerome, Carter, Peter, Cody, Roman and last (but far from) least, Seth, are all wonderfully amazing and the funnest bunch of guys I ever meet in a book. Loved them all.

As for the love triangle, I feel bad for G, since I even had a hard time picking between the too.
Roman hung on my arm pretty much through out the whole book. I instantly liked him right from the start. Building shelves, bowling, salsa dancing, he has a very attractive confidence and easy nature about him that I just adored.

Then there's Seth, ah sweet unsociable, shy shy shyy, Seth. Better with written words then actually speaking them, it took me a bit to warm up to the guy to be honest but in the end? That kiss and the chapter that followed it? That was breathtakingly beautiful.
Thetis...how priceless and perfect is that?!?
Seth baby, all the way!

The mystery surrounding the book, in true Mead fashion, was utterly brilliant. Did.not.see.that.coming. At All. Loved the twist and turns we found in this book, which makes it that more addicting and incredible.
All in all I adored and loved Succubus Blues, it has everything you'll ever want in a paranormal UF. Outstanding characters, sexy steamy scenes, unpredictable plot that keeps you on your toes and writing that keeps us thrilled and entertained right till the very last page.
I could go on and on but I can't since I have the next book at the ready.
So all I'm gonna say is read this, all of you, everyone single one of you, read.this.now.

Morgan F I think I'm the only one who hasn't read this.

~Tina~ Arlene hasn't yet. I think Kim's last review sold her on it though. You should read it, you'll probably like it:)

Sidenote; I didn't read any of your reviews Kim, but DAME I want to. I'll be good.

message 14: by Morgan (new)

Morgan F I'll probably read it eventually, but most likely not anytime soon.
