URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Succubus Shadows - Richelle Mead


Georgina Kincaid has formidable powers. Immortality, seduction, shape-shifting into any human form she desires, walking in heels that would cripple mere mortals child s play to a succubus like her.

Helping to plan her ex-boyfriend s wedding is a different story. Georgina isn t sure which is worse that he s marrying another woman or that she s having to run around trying on bridesmaid dresses. Still, there are distractions. Thanks to her roommate, her apartment s crackling with sexual tension plus there s Simone, the new succubus in town who seems intent on corrupting Georgina s soon-to-be-wed ex.

But the real danger lies in the mysterious force that s taken to visiting Georgina s thoughts. It s trying to draw her into a dark, frightening, otherworldly realm and there s going to come a point when she won t be able to resist. And when that happens, she s going to discover who she can trust, who she can t and that there are far worse places than Hell in which to spend eternity...


As a long time fan of Richelle, you always wonder what she’ll do with Georgina considering the tempest twisting romantic intentions between everyone’s favourite succubus and successful author. Some magical twists are brought to the fore in this offering with some magical revisits to Georgina’s past, as event’s are twisted by those behind this titles power play. Beautifully plotted with prose that just keep you hooked and romantic intentions that really do bring this modern Romeo and Juliet to the readers imagination. I really can’t wait for the next offering.
