I was so anxious about this book. I was so worried that she would try to cram too much in or leave something out..... but as with Seth Mortensen, it may take a year to write it, but it is worth every minute. If you are a GK fan you will not be disappointed in this book. RM stays true to each of her characters from beginning to end. Though I feel that she made Gerogina a bit more daft at times. True fans knew what was going to happen, but I personally did not think about the reactions to the revelation. Though there are not a lot of surprises as far as plot line there were many times that I was still guessing at how each character would play into the overall picture. I see another series forming from this one. I don't think this will be the last we see from the Seattle Crew, but I am very satisfied with Georgina and Seth's closing. I think this is the best series by RM. I have read other series by her and when I first started reading the Succubus series I had to go back and double check who the writer was. This series was written so profoundly different than any of her other series. It was smart, witty, mature and with just the right dose of sexual play and romance. The characters were all well developed along with each of their emotions and personalities. The reader for this series really made it too. You can tell she totally got Georgie. For me this was not just another typical Paranormal Romance. As with Katie and O'Neal, savor every page, or in this case, spoken word as it is rich and entertaining. Great Story, sorry to see it end, but what a great ending. Thanks Richelle for Sharing Georgie and the Seattle gang with us. It has been a pleasure.
I've been a big fan of this series and eagerly awaited this release. As always, I enjoyed the characters and the narration is excellent. There were no surprises in this final book, though. The problem is that she set up the probable ending so well in her previous book that this book feels like a long-drawn out final chapter. If you're already a fan of this series, it's a pleasant listen but has less zing than the previous books. If you haven't been following, I recommend starting at the beginning.
I assume this is the finale to the Georgia Kincaid series, since there is a definite ending. This is hard to write without giving some spoilers. I really enjoyed the plot of this entire succubus storyline and this installment finally wraps up many loose ends. We find out about the contracts with hell; we find out about Eric's death; we have many answers revealed about the Mortenson family. I kind of saw how some of this was heading throughout the series, but there were a few twists I didn't see coming. There are also some questions left kind of hanging. I have really enjoyed this series more than I ever thought I would. Who ever thought anyone could actually like a succubus and see the good in her or any of the characters that Georgina has been hanging around with? Richelle Mead really humanizes these "lesser immortals" and makes you root for them. It makes me want to believe that they all can get "saved" from hell. I hope there are more books that will tell us about some of the other characters Georgina hung around with. The Narrator for this series was great, too. This was very worth the credit spent.
This was a very nicely written ending to the entire series.
If you have enjoyed the others you will find this one just as good.
Elisabeth Rodgers does a perfect job at reading this (as she does with the others).
I loved this whole series and waited so long for this last one. I reread the whole series again before beginning this last book. I didn't want to miss anything. This story is about love, temptation, redemption, and hope. I had suspisions about how this would turn out and was susprised by a few of the details. I was worried that the book would not live up to all the anticipation I had waiting nearly a year for this last book. This last book didn't disappoint. Richelle did a great job. Elizabeth's narration when I first started the series was a little odd to me. I thought to myself "who talks like that," but it was the perfect voice of a succubus. Her only break was as Letha as a young girl and Georgina's melt down with Carter at the end of the last book (Succubus Shadows). I finished this series satisfied with everthing about it.
I really loved this series and think the last installment was one of my favorites. I have to admit though, I am sad to see it end. As I read through the book, I could recall scenes from the previous books and how it all tied it with the last installment. It was laid out amazingly well and I find myself wanting to go back through the previous books to check out previous scenes. When that happens, I know it's a great series. (and that is rare).
I don't want to give too much away, but I think this is well worth the credit and worth the wait.
As always, Elizabeth Rogers does an excellent job of narrating the book and I will be certain to check out more of her work.
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!
It took me a long time to listen to this book because I knew it was the last of the series. I have loved this story and all the characters from the beginning and the ending did not disappoint. The narration was beautiful and I felt as all the characters were her friends as well as mine she put so much emotion into the story telling. I will miss Georgina and the gang but the good news I can start over from the very beginning now.
I was surprised, given the titles of this series, that I really enjoyed these books. The stories were very good, the characters were interesting and I was really caught up in how this would play out. The narrator did an excellent job portraying the characters and was a definite plus for these stories. I definitely recommend this series to those who enjoy the supernatural genre!
Reviewing Romance & Urban Fantasy
Richelle Mead did a great job of sprinkling clues throughout the Georgina Kincaid series and with Succubus Revealed we get the big pay off.
Through the whole series we’ve seen Georgina’s long life through flashbacks. While these have been fun and entertaining they set up the grand finale to Georgina’s HEA. She’s been a succubus doomed to repeat the same mistakes over and over. At some point she has to learn from her mistakes and make different choices.
In Succubus Revealed we see Georgina out of the bookstore and working as an elf at the mall with drunken Santa included. She is missing her friends at the bookstore and not sure what she’s going to do as far as a new job. That is until she gets an unexpected transfer order from hell. She’s Las Vegas bound, a succubus’s wet dream. But how will she and Seth keep their relationship going? Seth can’t leave Seattle just yet and Georgina can’t say no to the move.
Georgina goes the Vegas to meet with her new boss and get the lay of the land. Everything in Vegas could not be more perfect from her best incubus friend to getting a dancing job as a showgirl. It’s all too perfect (if it’s too good to be true…). Which throws up all kinds of red flags but in true Georgina fashion she doesn’t see them. But thanks to her roommate, Roman, he’s on the case.
I think that Mead gave Georgina a great HEA and did a wonderful job of closing up the loose ends of the series in the finale. If you’re looking for a PNR/UF series with snark, mystery, romance and some smoking sex then you need to give Georgina Kincaid a try.
Elisabeth Rodgers did an outstanding job on the narration throughout the whole series. I will check out more of her narration work.
