Succubus Shadows (Georgina Kincaid, Book 5) - Richelle Mead

Georgina Kincaid has formidable powers. Immortality, seduction, shape-shifting into any human form she desires, walking in heels that would cripple mere mortals—all child’s play to a succubus like her.

Helping to plan her ex-boyfriend’s wedding is a different story. Georgina isn’t sure which is worse—that Seth is marrying another woman, or that Georgina has to run all over Seattle trying on bridesmaid dresses. Still, there are distractions. Georgina’s roommate, Roman, is cluttering her apartment with sexual tension. Then there’s Simone, the new succubus in town, who’s intent on corrupting Seth.

But the real danger lies in the mysterious force that’s visiting her thoughts, trying to draw her into a dark, otherworldly realm. Sooner or later, Georgina knows she’ll be too weak to resist. And when that happens, she’ll discover who she can trust, who she can’t—and that Hell is far from the worst place to spend eternity…

How could someone not TOTALLY do back flips over this book??? I hate to say this but this review will probably be all squealing like a school girl! lol So needless to say if you havent read this book yet STOP NOW! lol Surely there will be ***SPOILERS***

Ok we open up pretty much in the same place we left off at...Seth still engaged to Maddie, Georgina is living with Roman and still questioning if he still wants to kill her and all of us feeling HIGH AND DRY! ;p

It seems like Georgie is always at the pit of evil...bad things are always after her and in the book she doesnt get a break! Something Something evil is trying to capture her...something related to her past! Once again her and her friends gather together to try and figure out the mystery. When Georgie gets taken over one too many times her luck runs out and she gets captured! Now its up to her friends to figure out where exactly she is! ~ The cool thing about this aspect of the book was during her being captured. You relive her past...not quite knowing if it is real or fake. The dreams she had were heart wrenching at see stuff you wanted to happen and stuff you fear will happen! Either way it got your emotions rolling!



OMG OMG OMG...ok ok Im calm now...*sigh...FINALLY! Finally Georgia gives the heck in! Ok so Seth ends up breaking it off with Maddie (THANK YOU JESUS) and him and Georgie get together. Its hard for Georgie to make the decision to take from his soul and have sex with him but overall she realizes that they love each other and its the only way they can ever be happy together! At first when Seth and Georgie get together she realizes that Seth has changed and in my head I was thinking (as she walked away for another time) you know what...GOOD b/c he isnt the innocent guy we all loved BUT from her walking away he "wakes up" and does and about face!

In the mean while Roman has totally fallen for Georgie again and I have to say that I wanted them to be together. I love Seth...REALLY love Seth but there is something about the way the Roman looks at her and cares for her *sigh...see I was TOTALLY on the fence with these boys! Ok sad part...when Georgie decides to get BACK together AGAIN with Seth she going to walk out the door and who comes through...Roman! Let me tell you when he looked at her and realized she was going for Seth I ABOUT DIED! I was happy for her and Seth but sad for her and Roman! lol Cant we just have a Roman/Seth sandwich? lol

Oh one last thing that has to be sad...WOW on Maddie finding out about Seth and Georgie! I mean YIPES! But then again I was totally glad b/c I actually feel like I can breathe while reading the book now! lol Its like things are getting cleared up! BUT thats sad in itself b/c that means things are coming to an end. I actually think that the next book is the last :*( Ok I dont wanna event think of that right now!

Ok food for thought...what do yall think about the whole...problems with her contract thingy. Im thinking/hoping that they find a problem and shes able to get out of it and be a human again!!! EPP! Wouldnt that be awesome?

Ok so thats my ranting review! lol I loved this stinking book and further more I love Richelle Mead! =)

I give this book a total of...

Did I hear some spanking going on?! Let me in... ;)

Totally love your gushing review. It is seriously how I felt when I finished this book too. Actually I had to take a day or two to digest it before I could post my review.

As for the contract... there has got to be something going on with the soul mate thing and Seth!

*Supposition Time* Maybe he has a contract that he took out in a previous life that says he will be with his soul mate in every reincarnation and that is in conflict with Georgina's contract to have no one ever remember her!

Sweet Vernal Zephyr~
Hey SWEET THANG! Lol Spank away! lol Chantal is a feisty woman and is being naughty telling Mandi not to read the second book...SHAME SHAME! lol

Omg...ok next book we are SO reviewing together b/c youve got something there! Ive often wondered if Seth was like her old husband reincarnat! he said her REAL name at one point (which I do believe when everything went down someone called her it so maybe her heard it but I dont think thats it) OMG what if thats it?!?!?!

*breathing pretty hard here! Lol

Like we would SO get the best of both worlds b/c she was so upset she did that to her husband and you can tell she really loved him AND we would get Seth...this is just too much!

Ok so whens that next book coming out? lol

I felt so bad for Roman. His timing really stinks. But this is the second time now Seth has usurped him in Georgie's affections...I think Roman is going to hold a grudge in the next book!!

May 11, 2010 at 9:08 PM
Chantal said...

I want to see Roman and Seth fight for her.

May 11, 2010 at 9:16 PM
Monroe Dawson said...

Well if its the last book idk if that will happen...lets just hope its not the last one!!! lol I love some ways I wanna see him and Georgie together but then there is Seth...*sigh

I wanna see Seth and Roman fight over ME! lol but no really that would be cool but we both know Seth wouldnt win that one! lol

There's definitely something going on with the contract and her friend knew it, I think. Loved this book and it kind of made me a little less mad at Seth.

And I don't know why but I do love me some Carter!!!

May 14, 2010 at 6:23 PM
Monroe Dawson said...

A part of me wants Carter to fall and just be with Georgie! lol thats whats so great/frustrating about these books. You want all those men JUST AS MUCH as she does! lol I loved this book to pieces and yes I feel the same way!! I felt like Seth made up for a lot in this book! =) Cant wait for the nest one!!!

This series just does not disapoint. It is so much fun to read though I think I need to take a page from Georgie's book and stop reading the whole book in one night I need to read 5 pages a day. I just can't help myself once I get started. Does anyone know when book 6 is due to release?

May 17, 2010 at 5:54 PM
Monroe Dawson said...

Her site just says who knows. I'm just hoping its not the last bc in her FAQ's its says this series will only be 6 books! :'( Georgie would be a hard book to only read a few pages at a time. I just can't seem to get enough!

Thanks for stopping bye sweetie!
