Say something about yourself!
The narrator is very good I feel like she gave a voice to all the different characters.
The battle at the end.
Georgina of course
I prefer urban/para romance right now for the fantasy aspect, but I listen to other genres as well.
Yes! I have both. I liked listening to it because the narrator gives the different voices to the characters better than my imagination did. I guess my brain was having an off day. Seriously though, the book is very good in audio format.
The originality of the storyline. This book is DEFINATELY not a YA book. Its all adult, but not overly erotic. It has sexy scenes, but it isn't over the top. The story is about their day to day lives more than their jobs. (Yes, being a succubus is a j.o.b.) Its a really well crafted concept with original characters you become attached to.
I really loved the narration. As I stated above I also have the print version, but I liked being able to listen to her portray the different characters.
Wow, they really can turn anything into a job.
I really enjoyed these books. There are 6 books total and they are all worth the read. The series is finished, so you don't have to wait for the next one to come the way I did. It blows my mind that Richelle Mead can go from Vampire Academy to Succubus to Storm Born and now Age of X. She is very talented and I think if you like any of her other books you will enjoy this one as well. If you haven't read any of her books before, give this one a shot. Its smart, at times witty and genuinely unique in the urban/fantasy genre.
I had some trepidations about this series, and was unsure if I was going to like it. I really like urban fantasy, and had found myself at an impasse for new series to get in to. However, I was pleasantly pleased with the story line and the plots that followed throughout the series. The first book is interesting and depicts a modern day Seattle filled with creatures from both heaven and hell fighting for human souls. The main character is in fact a succubus, but wrestles with her nature and her need for long term companionship. Throughout the book, she finds herself with several otherworld obstacles and real life ones. She continues to attempt to live a normal life while being anything but ordinary. The series continues to improve.
Series I Love:
Kim Harrison- The Hallows
J.R. Ward- The Blackdagger Brotherhood
Charlene Harris- Sookie Stackhouse Series
George R. R. Martin- Game of Thrones
Suzanne Collins- The Hunger Games
The hodgepodge of cast encompasses most 'supernatural' creatures. Vampires, Imps, Arch Demons, Angels, and etc. The book doesn't hold back on details while remaining classy. There is a good deal of sex (what would you expect from a Succubus) but, the author does a great job of not getting into a smutty porno description.
Georgina. Lived over 1000 years and very well rounded. I like her daily routines and her life never seems to be boring.
I really like the no holds bar on the descriptions of everything in the book.
Elisabeth Rodgers is an excellent narrator but she tends to draw out the last word she says of a sentence. At first, this seems annoying but you get used to it quickly and is less subtle.
An interesting story line, but I found the dialogue quite juvenile and difficult to follow, especially considering the story line. A minor immortal with millenium of existence would hardly behave like a valley girl, but this one does. A teen or young adult may find this series quite good, but it isn't for the more mature reader.
I thought Ms Read did a fine job with ere narration and character depiction.
SPOILERS! I reviewed all the books of the series because I like a HEA and it seems to have one in book 6 this author draws you in and I enjoyed the book immensely !
I <3 audiobooks!
The narrator did a fantastic job with the characters voices and overall reading. Very enjoyable.
All of them were, I couldn't stop and finished the whole series within a week.
The whole series is fantastic. Lots of twists and turns and quite emotional, especially in the last few books in the series. My new favorite author :)
Yes. Georgina's character is witty and has a lot of depth. I have read all the books in this series and book 6 is every bit as good as book 1
I have read plenty of books about vampires, werewolves, and other creatures, but the theme of how a succubus has to work within "the system" is an interesting twist that keeps developing in the series. Also curious about the relationship between the angel Carter and Georgina's group of hells friends.
Rodgers narration style is an excellent match to the Georgina character and is the main reason I have the entire series of audible books.
Georgina's interactions and conversations with the other characters is often witty and funny.
This character was allllll over the place with her feelings. Every time she spent time with a guy she was sure he was the one. She is not a very sympathetic character, but she is not hateful either. It just seems like she makes the same slutty mistakes. She is a succubus. I get that. However, all her whining about a real relationship and love and children is just silly when her head turns any way the wind blows. Entertaining enough, but I don't need to read anymore in this series.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
sexy, funny and romantic
this is my first listen to this genre so i have little to compare it to...but i really enjoyed it and i have read book 2 already and loved it as well.
i haven't heard a narrator i haven't liked except for one(Rush-awful) and even if i don't like a narrator at the start i generally grow to like them. i am new to audible and 2 narrators have impressed me to the point i remember their name...
i plan to read the entire series, i think there are 6 and i am already saddened that there is an end to georgina!
