I really enjoyed this last segment of the Succubus series by Richelle Mead. Yes, it was a bumpy road because like one listener I became frustrated with the main character, Georgina's constant melodrama and bad decisions. But then I had to remember, it was her bad decisions that made the story. I love the ending. It's more than just a happy ending it brings out questions about the soul and the mistakes and or choices that we all make as far as love and friendships. No, I'm not calling this book a spiritual awakening saga, but I am calling it an excellent, dramatic urban fantasy. The narrator truly kicked b..t! She was very good at portraying all the characters.
This was a wonderful ending to the series. Rarely do I read a series that is wrapped up so perfectly. I suppose it was predictable but a predictability that I was looking forward to see unfolding.
This has been a highly enjoyable series and this book brings it to it's end. Probably would have been a biogger hit with a different title. If you like Jim Butcher, you will enjoy Ms. Mead's series.
Social sci-fi, vampires, and modern detective thrillers, oh my!
If you've read the rest of the series then by all means, please read this book but don't start here. There was closure and even tears but for the whole book I was waiting for Georgina to catch up with the plot. All she could think about was her relationship instead of the big picture of her life.
A very good conclusion to the series! I finished the whole series in f cord time! Excellent writer and good narration.
I am a 57 year old book addict. I started out reading Daniel Steele and Sidney Shelton novels 30 years ago. Since then I have added literally hundreds of authors. I take the time to write reviews on books that sweep me away. So if I have really loved that particular book. There have been a couple over the years I reviewed because I truly hated them too.
I read the first book eagerly. I read the second book eagerly. The third and fourth books I fast forwarded through parts. I totally skipped the fifth book. I read the sixth book with reservations, but I'm glad I got it. Ms Mead did end the series very well.
I would recommend this series to those who read a book a month, or a book a year, but a "read the entire series in rapid succession reader " I would advise to space this series out.
The narrator did a great job. She made every character come to life. I look forward to other books she narrates.
I have never enjoyed a series as much, it hit every emotion in the spectrum I didn't sleep for 3 days while I listened to them all
After reading the series and finally getting Audible app, I decided to listen to my favorite succubus story and was not bored and loved it even more. Elisabeth Rogers did a fantastic job narrating the series and this last one was the best out of all of them. Carter's intervention broke my heart, Seth's pain, and Georgina's bravery all came across with perfection. I am so happy I got this series, while bee listening to them again & again.
