“When it comes to jobs in hell, being a succubus seems pretty glamorous. A girl can be anything she wants, the wardrobe is killer, and mortal men will do anything just for a touch. Granted, they often pay with their souls, but why get technical?

But Seattle succubus Georgina Kincaid’s life is far less exotic. At least there’s her day job at a local bookstore–free books;all the white chocolate mochas she can drink;and easy access to bestselling, sexy writer, Seth Mortensen, aka He Whom She Would Give Anything to Touch but Can’t.

But dreaming about Seth will have to wait. Something wicked is at work in Seattle’s demon underground. And for once, all of her hot charms and drop-dead one-liners won’t help because Georgina’s about to discover there are some creatures out there that both heaven and hell want to deny. . .” Goodreads


As this is a Richelle Mead novel, and I adore the Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series, my expectations for this novel were pretty high… just to be disappointedly confused. Prior to reading this novel, I had never heard of a succubus before (most likely because, based on this  book, it’s a bit risque for a YA novel). Learning about that supernatural character the way the demonish characters interact was intriguing, how they fit into everyday life with mortals was odd. Georgina is a very strong female character who is generally full of witty remarks that remind me of Rose Hathaway from VA. As I love happy endings, this novel left me disappointed (take that as you may).  I will still carry on with the series, but I don’t know if I’ll settle on whether I like it or not.
