Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Something ominous is tracking reluctant succubus Georgina Kincaid through her effervescent fifth urban fantasy adventure (after 2009's Succubus Heat). An elusive entity that Georgina can't name or fight invades her thoughts and nearly persuades her to kill herself. Georgina's boss, archdemon Jerome, and her angel friend Carter can't even detect the phenomenon, much less figure out how to stop it. Georgina's ex-boyfriend, Seth, is about to marry her friend Maddie, and what with pining after Seth, trying to protect him from another succubus, and being one of Maddie's bridesmaids, Georgia finds that suicide is starting to sound very tempting. Mead's lighthearted romp is plenty of fun on the surface; Georgina's struggles with the gray areas between good and evil provide a powerful undercurrent. (Apr.)

That's what I said when this book ended: "What?! Nooooo, don't stop there!" I love this series and I love Richelle Mead - no one does heart-wrenching angst as well as she does. However, in spite of the fact that I read this book in one day because I couldn't put it down, I do have several criticisms.

I thought this book was going to be the one to finally reveal all, to confirm what we've suspected since book two with regard to who Seth is to Georgina - what they are to each other, really - and what really happened with this whole contract with Hell business. So, I was really disappointed when it didn't happen. I think that's why I went through it so fast... I was rushing to get to the big climax, only to be left unsatisfied.

The plot was really weak. The only real purpose of this book in terms of moving the story forward seems to be to fill in a little more of Georgina's back story (aka provide us with even more evidence of what I think we already know, right?)and *SPOILER ALERT* have a reason for Seth to get shaken out of his misguided engagement to Maddie so he and Georgina can get back together and finally figure things out. I'd also like to say that I'm beginning to feel some annoyance with the on again off again back and forth rehashing of reasons this relationship can't work but must work... we need resolution now, please.

So,what we have here is a transition book to make sure we are fully prepared for the next/final book - rumor has it there will only be one more and I think that's how it should be... well, actually I think this book and the next one should have been combined somehow, but I'm not going to complain about having a little more time with Georgina and the gang.

In spite of the flaws, I still really liked this book.

Georgina doesn't seem to get a break. After dealing with numerous life threatening events--in not even a year--our favorite succubus has a new problem: planning a marriage. But this isn't just any marriage, mind you. This is a marriage that she secretly wishes would not transpire.

It doesn't end there, though. She's now being stalked by a mysterious "siren's song." This strange presence only seems to approach her when she's at her lowest, and provides a sense of escape from her depression with promises of warmth and support. Yet, even with this aura attempting to lure her through some sort of dimensional gate, Georgina's wary. For good reason.

Initially, I thought that Richelle was losing her touch because the start to Succubus Shadows was too slow for my tastes. It seemed as if it was the same issues we saw Georgina struggling with in the last book--Seth proposing to another woman coupled with her inability to cope--were being overdone. But once you get past the slow start, the new direction taken is redeemed in my eyes.

Powerful doesn't give this book justice. Georgina's struggles (emotional and moral) are not only believable but also moving. I even found myself empathizing with the the poor immortal suffering from depression. If you had to deal with all the paranormal issues she dealt with, and witness the person you were madly in love with parading around with their new significant other, I'm pretty sure you'd be feeling pretty bummed out too. I know I'd be ready to demand a vacation.

With that said, I may be the only one, but I'm not a huge fan of Seth anymore. I don't want to see Georgina's life keep going "in circles"--which is something readers are shown through a series of dreams from Georgie's past.

As an ongoing series these books must be read in order and book 5 continues where the previous left off.

Georgina is bombarded several new woes in her life. On top of having to learn to live without Seth, she now somehow gotten herself named a bridesmaid at his wedding, as well as dealing with a visiting Succubus who has made it her mission to conquer Seth, and a very odd relationship growing with Roman, oh and did I mention an unknown force that is out to kidnap her from this world?

Whenever Georgina finds herself in the throes of depression(which is often) an odd force or entity appears in her dreams like a siren's song to rescue her from it all. Or is it to kidnap her from it all? This unknown entity forces Georgina to relive painful memories from both her mortal life and her immortal one in order to feed off her energy. But are all the memories they show her true?

As a reader you find yourself just as confused as the character while she is reliving these past memories and just as tortured. I found the book to be both exciting and heartbreaking. I loved that this book covers a lot of how Georgina became who she is today by reliving many memories from her very long life. I've always wanted to know so much more about her past and this book delivers exactly that. You get to see how Georgina became the uncharacteristically compassionate minion of hell that she is now.

As with every book in this series, the end of Succubus Heat drove me absolutely bonkers (in a good way). It’s nearly impossible to NOT read the next book in the series. Each book is plot-driven, fast-paced and unputdownable. This book is no exception. Succubus Shadows is full of unexpected twists from beginning to end, setting the series up for the final book!

In the last book, Georgie loses her humanity for a short time, which gave her the ability (if the situation would arise) to sleep with whomever she wanted without any energy loss. Finally, Georgie and Seth were able to be together intimately, but actions came with a price. Seth is now hell-bound.

Succubus Shadows begins with a party. Georgie is in her new condo by the beach. With Maddie’s help, Georgie found the perfect house near the perfect location. Was anyone thinking, “A condo? But dream Georgie and dream daughter were in an house, not a condo. I do not approve of this move.”? No? Okay, just me. But Georgie is not living alone. She has a new roommate, her old friend Roman.

Roman played a HUGE role in this book. After dealing with even more devastating news at the end of Succubus Heat, Georgie needs someone to be there for her. Roman was her person.

Like I said, I’d rather see you leave and start a new life. Every time I see you now, it’s like…it’s like watching you die over and over.”
I stood up wanting to sleep. “Yeah,” I said softly. “That’s kind of what it feels like.” I hesitated. “Thanks for listening. And understanding.”
“Anytime,” he said.

I know that several people would have been 100% okay with a Roman and Georgie hook-up. I am not one of those people.
