So, I'd really like to apologize for my lack of reviews this past week. It seems that I keep getting wrapped up in these excellent series and I just keep putting off my reviews. Again I'm sorry, but at least some good book reading comes out of it *grins*.

My most recent series was the wonderful Georgina Kincaid Series by Richelle Mead. The basic story line is about a succubus who doesn't really want to be a succubus. Now if any of you are wondering what a succubus is, this happens to be my favorite part of this tale....its a paranormal female (the male version is an incubus) who gets it's life energy by stealing that of human's. But, it's how they steal it that I love. They steal it through sex.

Okay, so I might be a demented soul, but still it's kind of funny to me in a totally jacked up sort of way.

Our main character Georgina Kincaid lives in Seattle and is surrounded with all sorts of other immortals including a couple vampires, an imp, an angel and a demon. Now, she also happens to have some high affection for humans which I guess isn't the norm for immortals. But Georgina isn't normal for a succubus.

Longing surged up within me. I wanted it. Oh God, I wanted it. I didn't want to hear Jerome chastise me for my "all lowlifes, all the time" seduction policy. I wanted to come home and tell someone about my day. I wanted to go out dancing on the weekends. I wanted to take vacations together. I wanted someone to hold me when I was upset, when the ups and downs of the world pushed me too far.
I wanted someone to love. (Georgina)

Now, I don't want to give too much about this series away, but I would say besides Georgina, who is like this strong, smart, sexy woman/immortal/sex goddess, my favorite characters are going to be Seth and Carter.

Now Seth is a mortal and happens to also be an author. Carter is an angel and although I didn't like him that much in the first book, I really ended up loving him in all the rest.

But, Seth, he is just such an amazing character if you think about it for awhile. I mean, his character is so wonderfully developed and he is so flawed that you can't help but love him for it. I mean, he just brings this reality to the books that makes the reader feel like they are really there experiencing everything with the characters. And Seth, I just love him. He seems super shmexy and at the same time smart and shy and kind. I love that about him.

"Well, that depends, I suppose. I heard someone once say that men dance the same way they have sex. So, if you want everyone here to think you're the kind of guy who just sits around and—"(Georgina)

He stood up. 'Let's dance." (Seth)

"I hope I redeemed myself with the whole dancing-sex comparison.” (Seth)

“I suppose there were a couple of notable similarities,” I observed, holding a straight face.

“A couple? What about attention to detail, heavy exertion, lots of sweat, and single-minded determinedness to get the job done and done well?”

“Mostly I was thinking you just don’t talk during sex.” Mean perhaps, but I couldn’t resist.

“Well, my mouth has better things to do.”

I swallowed, my own mouth dry. “Are we still talking about dancing?"

Heehee! Gotta love the man!

Anyway though, these books are just....FANTASTIC! I loved them and I just couldn't get enough of them. Mead has such a way with her characters and her story line. I just love the way it flows and how she makes me feel glorious things about her characters. I love how she can describe a scene perfectly without too many words and still get me to know exactly what I'm seeing. Anyone who hasn't read this series should give it a try, because with arch demons who look like John Cusack, hilarious games of Pictionary involving an angel, a metrosexual vampire and a story that crosses over centuries you will love it as much as I did!
"Wait,” he said. “That’s not a word.” (Seth)

I looked down to where, in a moment of desperation, I’d played zixic on a triple-word-score space.

“Uh, sure it is.”

“What’s it mean?”

“It’s sort of like…quixotic, but with more…”

“Bullshit?”

I laughed out loud. I’d never heard him swear before.

“More zeal. Hence the z.”

“Uh-huh. Use it in a sentence.”

“Um…’You are a zixic writer.’“

“I don’t believe this.”

“That you’re zixic?”

“That you’re trying to cheat at Scrabble.” He leaned back against my couch, shaking his head. “I mean, I was ready to accept the whole evil thing, but this is kind of extreme."

The last book in this series Succubus Revealed will be released September 2011 so add it to your calendars!

  3. @Michelle - I know what you mean. It was such an awesome series and I've grown to love Georgina and Seth and of course Carter. I will be sad to see it end, but I am very curious how she is going to close it out. I mean, of course, I know some stuff that is going to happen, but I'm hoping she isn't going to make it too obvious.

    @Lu - Richelle Mead is such a fabulous author! I loved Vampire Academy and I have plans to read her newer series as soon as I can find the first book. :D

I always love comments, and I read every single one!

Also, this is now designated an award free zone. Although I love awards and I love everyone for thinking of me, I just don't have the time to honor them like they need to be honored. Thank you though for your consideration!
