Publisher's Summary

Succubus (n.) An alluring, shape-shifting demon who seduces and pleasures mortal men. Pathetic (adj.) A succubus with great shoes and no social life. See: Georgina Kincaid.

When it comes to jobs in hell, being a succubus seems pretty glamorous. A girl can be anything she wants, the wardrobe is killer, and mortal men will do anything just for a touch. Granted, they often pay with their souls, but why get technical?

But Seattle succubus Georgina Kincaid's life is far less exotic. Her boss is a middle-management demon with a thing for John Cusack movies. Her immortal best friends haven't stopped teasing her about the time she shape-shifted into the Demon Goddess get-up, complete with whip and wings. And she can't have a decent date without sucking away part of the guy's life.

At least there's her day job at a local bookstore--free books; all the white chocolate mochas she can drink; and easy access to best-selling, sexy writer Seth Mortensen, aka "He Whom She Would Give Anything to Touch but Can't".

But dreaming about Seth will have to wait. Something wicked is at work in Seattle's demon underground. And for once, all of her hot charms and drop-dead one-liners won't help because Georgina's about to discover there are some creatures out there that both heaven and hell want to deny.

What the Critics Say

"At the start of a planned series, Mead cooks up an appetizing debut that blends romantic suspense with a fresh twist on the paranormal, accented with eroticism." (Booklist)

"Elisabeth Rodgers’s understated narration displays subtle skill. Her low, even voice traces Georgina’s snarky musings and wistful regrets without melodrama. Rodgers’s vocal choices also support Mead’s secondary characters. Angels mesmerize as they try to convince Georgina to repent. Demonic pals and mortal co-workers emerge with unique voices and endearing concern for the likable Georgina. Mead’s quirky story—the forces of good and evil even gather for Friday night happy hour—is well matched by Rodgers’s intuitive depiction of Georgina’s complexities." (AudioFile)

    Story
    "Good overall feel, but kind of tedious"

    Maybe it's just me, but the book took a while to pick up. The story in itself is very interesting and there is a plethora of characters and supernatural occurrences, but it was a bit exasperating. It may be that the author was gaining her footing, because the second half of the book was interesting. I will say that I loved the main character's spunk and sense of humor. I also enjoyed her platonic love/hate/snark with her favorite author.

    I'm on the fence. I may listen to the second installment when it goes on sale.

    Story
    "Demons in Seattle"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend this book to a friend because I actually enjoyed hearing about Georgina's struggles with what she is despite how long she's been alive. She's a character that makes you want to know more which is why I started the second book right after finishing the first.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Georgina because she was interesting and I liked her 'voice.'


    What does Elisabeth Rodgers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She really made it easy to listen to the story and I enjoyed the way she brought Georgina to life. I couldn't imagine hearing her voice now and not hearing Georgina.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I actually would have liked to but I only listen while at work so there were times when I hoped no one bothered me in my office so I could keep listening.


    Any additional comments?

    If sex bothers you, don't listen to this because the main character is a succubus after all.

    Story
    "A fun diversion from Vampire/Werewolf/Zombies"
    Where does Succubus Blues rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The entire Georgina Kincaid series is up there with some of my faves in the fantasy genre. The stories are engrossing and well written. I totally lose myself in each book when they come out.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Georgina Kincaid, the story's heroine, is a nice change from the run-of-the mill vampire/shifter/werewolf/witch/zombie tales out there now. As a succubus from ancient Greece times, she has seen a lot but is not jaded by humanity. If anything, Georgina has become quite enamored with us. A very empathetic character, Georgina Kincaid, is very well imagined by Richelle Mead. Love this entire series. Cannot wait for the next book to come out!


    Which character – as performed by Elisabeth Rodgers – was your favorite?

    All of them. Elisabeth Rodgers is a perfect reader for this series. Her sultry, silky, and steamy voice makes the Succubus' tale all the more believable.


    Any additional comments?

    Read them all!!!

    I don't have any plans to read any more of this series. But, if they go on sale for half the price of a credit, I might.

    "waste of time, no action, no plot"

    I have listened to 3 hours now and there is still no action, no plot and no character development just me me me drivel from a self absorbed whiney unrealistic protagonist that seriously needs to get a life - no pun intended. Audible has done it again, screwed me out of a credit by deliberately marketing what is basically a romance novel as something it is not.

    "Sexy Action Adventure"
    If you could sum up Succubus Blues in three words, what would they be?

    Sexy Action Adventure


    What did you like best about this story?

    I am no literary critic so If I dont use the appropriate words and phrases please forgive me. the heroine/protagonist is not the most powerful individual in the story. More a reluctant heroine, and yet she shows remarkable resolve and resourcefulness. She is also surrounded by an interesting group of friends. The sort of life I hadn't imagined for a "damned soul" I love the, new to me, genre of "Urban Fantasy". Sort of Scifi with out the space or future with the recognizable of a "real" city on this planet. There is not a ton of learning curve to be dragged through getting up to speed with all sorts of difficult to read names and paragraph after paragraph of other worldly descriptions of other worlds or technologies.I like sarcastic dark humor... this book is loaded with it.Any book with a Succubus as a protagonist you know there is going to be some sexy bits... who would guess... I like that too.I liked the story and liked the way it was told and very well read.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Chapter 3 there is a scene where Georgina meets Seth. Very funny... oh crap funny.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The small scene toward the end with Carter and Georgina in her car.


    Any additional comments?

    The reader/narrator Elisabeth Rogers was excellently selected for her voice. The pairing of Richelle Meads story and Elisabeth Rogers reading is brilliant. This is my first full audio book and I am Sooooo hooked. I have to adopt some restraint in my listening. I burned through the whole series in days It was soo good.

    Story
    "Addictive and Entertaining"
    Would you listen to Succubus Blues again? Why?

    Yes, so that I can focus on the clues I missed during my first listen. It was such a good experience I listened to each part in one evening and had to force myself to stop when the first part was over.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Georgina the Succubus, as a woman who loves books (and audiobooks), I could relate to her and some of her predicaments. ;)


    What about Elisabeth Rodgers’s performance did you like?

    She can pull you in with her voice and her crisp annanciation of "s" sounds is oddly fitting for the characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Just because you are supposed to, doesn't mean you have to! (And the cliche) Don't judge a Book by its cover!


    Any additional comments?

    I'd recommend it to my mother!

    "Definately surprised me!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Succubus Blues to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version, but I can't imagine it being better than the audio version. Elisabeth Rodger's performance was excellent. I could easily visualize the characters almost as if I was watching a movie.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Georgina aka Leetha was my favorite character. She is a dark heroine. You love her even though she is doing bad, because she has a conscience and she cares about people. Georgina wants to be good but is victim of circumstance.


    Have you listened to any of Elisabeth Rodgers’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first Elisabeth Rodger's performance, but I was thoroughly impressed. Once I finished the book , I immediately checked to see what else she'd done and was happy to find more.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was very moved when the Georgina realized that she needed and wanted to protect Seth. She risked her life and shape shifted to animals to fight Roman and his sister, and she was hurt doing so.

    "Not sure about this series."

    It's not a bad book but I looked at the other books in the series and I was unhappy with the author's choice of love interest. I could be wrong but it just seemed to safe and boring. The story was actually pretty good. It's written well and even has some funny parts.

    "I had the Blues after reading"
    What did you like best about Succubus Blues? What did you like least?

    The story was okay, but really tired of the main characters whining about how great she is and what a burden that greatness is


    Would you be willing to try another book from Richelle Mead? Why or why not?

    I usually love this author, but I did not like this series or this character


    Which scene was your favorite?

    none were really my favorite, but I guess the birthday party....


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No, probably not
