Hot damn I keep finding myself some amazing authors lately. If you have previously enjoyed authors that I’ve mentioned here before (Hamilton, Harrison and Davidson) then you will also enjoy Richelle Mead. That’s right, I’ve devoured three novels in around 2 days (I’m going by actual reading time) because they were just so damn hot I couldn’t quit until I was done and now I’m aching for the next book due to a tease at the end of book 3. You’ll want to start this trip into fantasy with Succubus Blues to learn all about what’s going on in Seattle with Georgina and her friends.
Georgina Kincaid is your lovely thirty-something book store employee who seems to have it all. Great friends who enjoy hanging out with her, getting drunk and having fun, with her lovely sarcastic wit that sometimes pushes people over the edge and sometimes gets the fun started. You’ll find that trouble finds her instead her finding it most of the time. She has a lovely little quirk that I may have to adapt to stop devouring novels the way I have been - she only reads 5 pages a day of the author she obsesses over. FIVE pages a day! I love the reason she gives which is basically because it’s just SO good that she’d read it all at once and then have to wait forever for the next novel to come out. I can completely relate to this issue as I’m waiting for several series to continue right now.
You’ll envy Georgina because of the simple fact that she has the power to look perfect, every time, anytime, no matter what. She can simply shapeshift into any type of body, any clothing, whenever she wants as long as she has the power to do so. She gets that power by seducing men (or on occasion women) which also keeps her alive. Georgina can eat and drink, and sort of has to or she gets lightheaded. She has demons, imps, vampires and even human friends. There are only 3 or 4 humans who know what she really is. The true kicker? One ofher best friends is an angel. That’s right, you’ll love Carter but he’ll annoy you with his “mysterious clues” as to the things he’s trying to teach Georgina. I think I have a hint on that but I refuse to share.
It’s hard for an immortal being to have a love life, especially with a human, but she tries it anyway and it’s a wild ride. The relationship is an absolute rollercoaster of emotional torment and lust that, if fulfilled, would take time off his life. With everything that’s going on around her, between mortal concerns and immortal happenings, Georgina’s life is a ton of fun, heartache and sometimes fraught with danger. This series is definitely worth starting and following. Enjoy!
