I just love this series! I was luke warm about it before listening to the first book and now I cannot stop listening! The Seth/Georgina storyline is really interesting. You won't be disappointed.
I have tried a number of book series and this one, by far, is my favorite. Anytime I can't wait for my next credit and I am forced to pay for the next book, I know I'm hooked.
Elisabeth Rodgers is a terrific voice of Georgina. I love how the plot is so well done along with the wonderful sex scenes. Sometimes lesser authors use the sex scenes as substitutes for writing or plot, but here, those scenes are integral to the character and to the plot. Really well written.
I am SO sad about Seth. I can only hope that he comes back in later books. Please!
I like Jack Reacher style characters regardless of setting. Put them in outer space, in modern America, in a military setting, on an alien planet... no worries. Book has non moralistic vigilante-justice? Sign me up! (oh, I read urban fantasy, soft and hard sci-fi, trashy vampire and zombie novels too)
Odd, but I think this book number 3 in the series was even better than both the previous ones.
I've never understood her attraction to Seth anyway (yeah, being a quiet shy writer is all well and good but if you never want to go out, skip out of or forget about half the dates you do have, don't party together, don't admit that you're in a relationship to the outside world, and don't have sex, what kind of basis do you have for a relationship?) I know they repeat over and over how much in love they are with each other and yet... they spend more nights apart than together, and neither actually "knows" the other. Doesn't say much for the kind of love they supposedly have for each other.
And the rationale for the breakup is a bit on the lame side... "let me hurt you now when your love is new and strong and fresh so I won't hurt you down the road..." Yeah... if this was a valid argument, nobody should ever get together 'cause it's most likely that one of you will have to mourn the other. I guess we're supposed to ignore the fact that painful things always get better with time and what is overwhelming now will just be a blink of the eye later.
That being said, I liked how their relationship played out, and am glad the story ended like it did. And I really liked the non-Seth plot here - and how Georgina's past was further developed. I even like the fact that she met Dante who seems to be a much more interesting person than Seth could ever be. And more suited to her too - not just because they could have sex - but because they actually have something in common.
Oh, and I think this installment was more sexually graphic than the earlier ones too.
OK aside from Georgina whining and her breaking up with Seth, I found the whole succubus internship thing, Nix and Angels issues interesting. I just don't understand her "being bad," though, I mean it seems as if she is mostely doing good. Is that the reason why Carter is always watching over her? Is she actually an agent of good without knowing it?
Hmm I've already bought the 4th and 5th books, I hope the books continue to be entertaining!
This was a surprisingly good book. Great character development and interesting story line. Good enough to want me to read the series...
It was easy to listen to and fun.
This was my first experience with Ms. Rogers and it was good.
It made me want to cry for Georgina. She can't seem to catch a break.
Reading is a must-have ESCAPE...
With the exception of the relationship with Bastion's character in "...On Top", I consumed this edition in the series at lightening speed. It was enjoyable enough to keep me preoccupied while doing some landscaping. Unfortunately, the ending left the reader a bit hollow. I was shocked the book was already finished and even more surprised with how Mead opted to end it. Then again, I rushed to purchase the next installment... "Heat."
The ending SUCKS. Maybe realistic, but still depressing. Georgina finally decides she's going to let Seth make his own choice... and have sex with him... then, OMG... he breaks it off and gets involved with her friend? It's really hard NOT to feel sorry for Georgina. After many promises, Seth breaks her heart (or the Succubi' equivalent). Though Carter is beginning to grow on me.
There is something so compelling about Richelle Mead's writing. There is depth in her characters, humor in her dialog, and surprises around the corners.
I can't wait to read the next one.
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!
The storyline was good as well as the continued story of Georgina and Seth. Most characters are continued throughout the story and also a few new ones. I am anxious to continue on with the series and hope things look up for Georgina!
This is a book that stands on its own.....a modern day succubus trying to live a normal life.
The development of the relationship between Georgina and Seth, it's pretty significant in this book....I look forward to discovering what happens but I don't want the series to end. I love Georgina.
There are several humerous events throughout the story and I did tear up in the end. I feel so bad for Georgina.
