My Review:

The Plot:

First let me state that I received an Advance Reader Copy, (ARC), but this in no way influences my review. I always leave an honest review. Also note that this is my first time reading this author, and I hope it won't be my last.

Holy shiznet!!! This story is gr8. You'd think that a story about succubi would be all sex, but not this one. The storyline is of another take on succubi, demons, Archangels, Lilith, & djinn. I usually don't read many stories about Angels especially from or with the

Jezebeth is a succubus out for a feeding when she is attacked by a demon and saved by a handsome human. She must work with him to survive and make it home to Lilith. Along the way, the two begin to develop a connection.

I was surprised by how much I loved this story. Although the main story is about Jezabeth we get a meet an amazing cast of characters. I found myself rooting for so many characters and when the book was over wanting to see where this story goes.

I liked the side plots more than the main plot. I enjoyed Lillian and Uriel's relationship but had trouble getting interested and invested in Jezebel and Noah's story. It was hard for me to finish this book which is why I only gave it 2 stars.

2 stars this book was not for me.... don't get me wrong I like my books raunchy, this was a bit too raunchy for me. The main characters were flat and had no real chemestrey. I loved the character Lillith though. Truly a interesting demon/woman. But not enough to continue the series ..

2/5 - Im confused...

This book reads like it was the first book the author ever wrote and then rushed to publish without editing. The publication date listed on NetGalley is 5/10/10 but on Amazon and Goodreads is listed as 18/12/18 AND under a different author name. Whats going on? Besides some questionable dates and names this book is hard to read.

I like the idea of the story. I even like some of the characters BUT the grammar and redundancy sucks any enjoyment from the read. Third person

Cassie Ryan knows how to write sexy characters! Seducing the Succubus is the 1st in her 4 (?!) book series called the Sisters of Darkness. I was blown away by her facile story telling and ecstatic that there will be more!! This is a fast-paced and sensual read that was exciting from start to finish.

In this story Jezebeth is a succubus that feeds off the sexual energy of others. Hundreds of years ago she and her

I really loved this book. I almost didn't buy it because of the fact that I tried her first book in the Seduction Series and hated it. Which was sad because I did like her 2 books in her Maiden Series. She has totally changed my mind now. I couldn't put this book down and kept thinking about how I wanted the next one right now. I hope now that she's feeling better she will be able to write the last two books in the series. If you like a good paranormal read and are into all creatures of the ...more

This was actually a great first book. I loved the character and the plot of the book. I'm not going to go into great detial but, its a fight for the end of the world between Demons and Angels. They demons have to work though the 4 Succubus sisters to make the end come and the angels are not supposed to interfere. Each sister will have a companion who is supposed to help her get home to Lilith the queen of all Succubi.

I thought is was a really good book. The story line kept me hooked, there were other interesting characters in it besides the main ones, and there were some really steamy scene's if your into that sort of thing. I would suggest it.

This was a maybe book for me. I finally got around to checking this one out. After 55 pages I ended giving this one up. I didn't care for Noah's disdain for succubi in general and hated how cruel Lillith was. In the end this one just wasn't for me.

"seksi tanrı biz zevk alalım diye yarattı" o kadar çok geçti ki rahatsız etti sanki kendileri kötü bişey yaptıklarını düşünüyorlar ve bahane arıyorlar gibi hani bildiğimiz için melekleri insan meleklerin işi gücü yok bunlarla mı uğrasıyorlar diye düşünüyor
Wasn't really that great - plot didn't really flow and it had an odd ending. His profession as a horror writer - really? How would that lead him to know so much about Lilith?

Miss Ryan NEVER fails to make me enjoy her books! I didn't know this was a trilogy until I picked it up. THANKFULLY I also picked up the second in the series. Now I just gotta find the third!!
