Succubus Blues (Georgina Kincaid Series #1)

Succubus Blues - Richelle Mead I liked Succubus Blues for a first book in the series. It's where the important and secondary characters were introduced, on what they are and what they do. I appreciate that the author took a sufficient time to get to know them. The pacing of the story was smooth and adept for understanding; though there was a mystery in the mix, it still had me guessing "who" was involved. I guess I had the same feeling when I read the first book in VA. The lightness and easiness of the plot was reasonable albeit the lack of some serious action. But I'm pretty sure it will improve in the following books in the series just like what happened to VA. I'm not trying to compare or liken both series since it's fairly obvious on how vast they seem to differ. Only that I am trying to point out RM's work in general. Georgina Kincaid is a kick-ass character. When the book opened with her shapeshifting to be a hot diva, I can't help but let my jealousy streak come out. Yes, I want to shapeshift like a VS model! And have my make-up fixed without lifting a hand. But what really got to me in her was her past, and her reason why she have to succumb in a succubus way. Her way of lamenting? I think when it happened to her at a young age, the palpable sadness was incredible. Presumably, everybody knew this so here goes: Seth Mortensen is the love interest for our lovely Georgina, but his character in this book was not much developed, yet he was known to his eloquent ways. How the author kept us wanting is great. Probably the reason why I've have not read the Georgina Kincaid series was because I like contemporary for my adult books; and I am not entirely into PNR, together with some unsettling feelings and slight apprehensions. It's just different when I'm reading YA over Adult so that's my story. I finally caved in because come on, this is Richelle Mead we're talking about. She's a class of her own. Everything under her name is a default-read to me. Also because a friend convinced me so.(Yes you, Stacia ;)) It was too much when she had me at the VA series, and since it wasn't enough, with Bloodlines as well. Seriously, who can resist her guys?! So if you haven't read any of her books then you're probably a honey badger :P "...very often the things we most desire come only after much patience and struggle. That is the human truth." xx
