Review: Succubus Revealed by Richelle Mead (Georgina Kincaid #6)

Publisher - Bantam Books
Publication Date - 15th September 2011
Paperback - 304 pages
Genre - Urban Fantasy

Source - Received from publisher for review

Rating - 4 out of 5: I really liked it.

Book Info - Georgina Kincaid has had an eternity to figure out the opposite sex, but sometimes they still surprise her. Take Seth Mortensen. The man has risked his soul to become Georgina's boyfriend. Still, with Lucifer for a boss, Georgina can't just hang up her killer heels and settle down to domestic bliss. In fact, she's being forced to transfer operations... to Las Vegas.

The City of Sin is a dream gig for a succubus, but Georgina's allies are suspicious. Why are the powers-that-be so eager to get her away from Seattle - and from Seth? Georgina is one of Hell's most valuable assets, but if there's any way out of the succubus business she plans to take it - no matter how much roadkill she leaves behind. She just hopes the casualties won't include the one man she's risking everything for...

My Thoughts - I can't believe that this series has ended! But saying that, I am so happy with the way that it did end that I will admit to shedding a few tears. I guessed how it was all going to end in one of the earlier books but I just wasn't sure how the author was going to make it happen and that was what made me so eager to read this book - to find out what tricks Ms. Mead had up her sleeve! And I wasn't disappointed in the slightest.

The supporting characters were, once again, amazing. The two that really stood out for me though were Carter and Roman. I have always had a bit of a soft spot for Carter but in Succubus Revealed he does so much to help Georgina and Seth (and even Seth's family) that I fell in love with him all over again! What I would really like is a spin-off series about Carter so that we can learn a bit more about him. He's just a bit too mysterious! And as for Roman, I can't really say what made me like him so much as it is right at the end and it would be a great big spoiler - but for those of you who've read this book, you know what I'm talking about!

At the beginning of Succubus Revealed, Georgina becomes her usual over-dramatic self when she learns she is being transferred to Las Vegas. She starts worrying about how her relationship is ever going to last and Jerome came up with a perfect quote that I thought sums up Georgina brilliantly:

"Take him with you. Or date long distance. I honestly don't give a ****, so long as you stop your whining. How can you not see solutions here? You've apparently decided that you being immortal isn't a deterrent to your great love... but a two-hour plane ride is?"

This is so true. Georgina gets so wrapped up in all the little details of the drama of things that she can't see solutions. But she does change a lot during the course of Succubus Revealed and she does some things that I would never have imagined she would do at the beginning of the series. Although I have found her to be slightly irritating at times I'm going to miss Georgina.

Summary - A perfect ending to a very good series. If you have not started this series now then you need to do so very, very soon!
