Review: Succubus Shadows (Georgina Kincaid #5) by Richelle Mead

Succubus Shadows by Richelle Mead

Goodreads summary:
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.

You can purchase the books from: The Book Depository.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

My thoughts and ramblings... There are spoilers in my review so be aware!

Yet another incredible book given to us by Richelle Mead. I am amazed at how much power is in it, how much love, how much pain, longing for an impossible dream. In this book we truly meet Georgina Kincaid, we see her past, all the nightmares she's lived trough.

However I have to agree with some of the comments below that it wasn't as energetic as the previous books. Most of the time Georgie was locked up and that's what led to the memories but she's always the one to take action and that was missing here.

I also didn't like the whole getting-back-together-with-Seth thing. I don't like him as much as I'm supposed to, him being the main hero and all... He lost his charm somewhere along the way. I think the dream men shouldn't have been him.

I truly enjoyed the parts with Jerome and Carter and the gang but I think that Seth was so out of place in the saving-Georgie part.

This second contract got my attention so I will be reading the next and final book to the series.

I give 4 stars just because the book was not on the same level as the last 4 books from the series...
