Succubus Heat is another smashing success in bestselling author, Richelle Mead’s Georgina Kincaid series focusing on a collection of paranormal creatures including—but definitely not limited to—demons, angels, imps, and succubi. There are also the traditional mixings of humans with rare skills like the more witchy dark magicians.
The use of demons and other more dark character favorites, with the ironic twist of making them
quite likeable, brings to mind the work of author Stacia Kane.
Succubus gifts haven't been enough to squelch the
pall of heartbreak that Georgina has been suffering under for months. Try as she might to feign indifference, the Big Demon on the block
is tired of her attitude. If only she could just make it all go away. Well, wish granted—Georgina
is on loan to a rival Demon whose territory covers most of Canada. Talk about raw end of the stick.
Powers of persuasion, attraction, and allure form the core of Georgina’s succubus talents, but she'll need to
draw on cleverness, powers of deduction, and courage to get this new job done. Deception is the name of the game, but the key players are riding quiet at the back of the bus. If she can't find out who is behind the deeds of the satanic cult in Canada, repercussions will trail down to home in Seattle.
Running back and forth between Seattle and Canada, Georgina can deduce much about the supposed satanic cult issues, but when all the members of her Demon’s staff become completely powerless, the real game is finally uncovered. Time is of the essence and the big, bad, evil world just got
a lot scarier. What can a powerless little succubus possibly do against a player of this caliber?
Succubus Heat doesn't fail to deliver on creativity and humor. The character development is quick and thorough,
getting the storyline moving on to the jucier qualities of the plot. Though the whodunit aspect is fairly easy to see through, several little twists and turns
keep the reader guessing to the end. Mead has done a marvelous bit of succubus
work herself—drawing in readers and leaving them asking for more.
