Book Review: Succubus Heat

Succubus Heat
by Richelle Mead
Publisher: Kensington
MSRP: $15.00
Available at: Amazon and Barnes and Noble

Succubus Heat is book four in the Georgina Kincade series. If you're a fan of Kim Harrison and Kresley Cole, I highly recommend this series. It's filled with demons, vampires, angels, imps, nephelim, and of course, succubi, running around Seattle and Canada trying to find some happiness here on Earth. The characters are well thought out, and this volume contains some very poignant moments. If you haven't read Succubus Blues, Succubus on Top and Succubus Dreams, I suggest that you stop reading here because the following contains some spoilers.

Georgina isn't your typical succubus. She's tried to be good and limit the amount of truly good men that she seduces, but lately things have not been going well. Since her break-up with famous author Seth Mortensen (yes, you do need to read Succubus Dreams), Georgina hasn't been coping well with her raging emotions. Seth is now seeing Maddie, her co-worker at Emerald City Books. Out of loneliness, Georgina has taken up with Dante, who all of her friends despise. To top it all off her demon boss, Jerome, is NOT happy with her bad attidude of late, and decides to 'lend' her to Cedric, a Canadian archdemon, to help him get rid of a Satanist cult that has been creating havoc in his city.

Of the four books in the series, I enjoyed this book the most. There are some very sad moments, and there are a lot of unresolved issues that I hope will be explored further in future volumes. After I finished reading this book, it left me wanting more. Unfortunately, the next book in this series isn't due out until April 2010. Booo!!! I'll definitely want to re-read the first four books again before I read the next book.
