2008: Succubus Georgiana has surprisingly high morals for a creature working for hell. She is very likable and sassy. In addition the story takes place in a bookstore. Bookstore and library novels get a plus in my opinion anyhow. I will read the next volumes but I don't need to rush out and buy them at once. I am still debating with my self, if this book will be a keeper or not.

My status update while re-reading (2016/01/11): "I just read my review from 2008. Frankly, I am stunned. I am plunging with such a happy apprehension into the first re-read of what I consider a favorite series of mine. How strange that I had that rather indifferent stance when I finished the first volume back then."

My verdict after finishing that first re-read (2016/01/17): What a beautiful ending! Somehow knowing what will happen enhanced my enjoyment of the introductory installment. I am adding the missing star, even though a few points remain unsatisfactory (i.e. How can an "employee" of a hellish darkside, who has been firmly established into a hierarchy of corrupting souls and turning people into sinners in a kind of Judaic/Christian sense for a few thousand years, be completely ignorant as the basic underlying mythology for his or her existence is concerned? Why does someone who has been around for a long, long time and understands old Greek, Latin and other forgotten languages need a modern translation of biblical texts to make sense of old-fashioned English phrases ...)
