Succubus Shadows book. I still loved Georgia, though there was no love lost for Seth.

For a moment, I had the strangest sense of déjà vu. When Seth and I were first getting to know each other, I’d crashed at his place after too much to drink. breakfast spread in his kitchen. A few moments later, reality sunk in. There was no desk or bulletin board of book notes, no teddy bear in a University of Chicago shirt. It was my own dresser that looked back at me, my own tangled pale blue sheets wrapped around my legs. With a sigh, I clambered out of bed and walked out to the kitchen, wondering what was going on.

Author: Richelle Mead. Publisher: KENSINGTON BOOKS, 2010. Immortality, seduction, shape-shifting into any human form she desires, walking in heels that would cripple mere mortals-all child’s play to a succubus like her. Helping to plan her ex-boyfriend’s wedding is a different story. Georgina isn’t sure which is worse-that Seth is marrying another woman, or that Georgina has to run all over Seattle trying on bridesmaid dresses. Still, there are distractions.

Probably a good point. Being in a conflict with a succubus kind of sucked

Probably a good point. Being in a conflict with a succubus kind of sucked. I could punch Hugh or the vampires, and even with immortal healing, they’d still sport a black eye for a few hours-longer if I was really good. But with a succubus? I could smack her around, and she’d shape-shift the damage. And as for verbal fighting?

This is the fifth installment of Richelle Mead's Succubus/Georgina Kincaid series. I still enjoyed this book, but at this point the sequels are showing their formula a little too clearly.

We have some new immortals show up in town. This time it's Simone, a succubus from out of town visiting Seattle on "vacation". Surprise, surprise, she almost immediately starts pursuing Seth, much to Georgina's irritation.

There are also more ups and downs with Georgina and Seth, namely that Seth is now engaged to their mutual friend Maddie and Maddie, still unaware of the Georgina/Seth history, is involving Georgina in all the wedding preparations.

And, of course, there's a new mysterious happening. Georgina keeps having these weird blackout spells where she's hearing/seeing some kind of siren song that keeps drawing her in and all her usual sources don't have much help for her. In a turn of events from previous books, this time it's Georgina who ultimately ends up in trouble and has to be saved by her friends.

I did enjoy this read, and as usual with this series, it was a very quick, popcorn like read. However, I do feel this is probably the weakest installment in the series, feeling a bit like a placeholder/set up for the following book.

To me, this book was a way to take up time and write about Georgina's past, instead of continuing the story.
That's how I looked at it anyways.
With that being said, you absolutely need to know all the the past. It's essential.
There's a bigger picture here and whisperings of a bigger plan in action. It involves Carter.
Out of the entire series, Carter has been my favorite character.
He's not featured much and very mysterious. Rarely shows his true feelings, but when he does, it's extraordinary.
In fact, I wish there was a series devoted to Carter. Something with all of the angels, but Carter as the MC.
Carter is overlooked so much in these books, but his motives are so unclear.
If there isn't a series featuring him and the angels, there should be.

Succubus Shadows is certainly the strangest of the series, but that didn’t make me love it any less! It picks up several months later with Georgina settled into her new condo, with her new roommate, and helping to plan Maddie’s wedding. Needless to say, she’s not too thrilled about that last one, but she puts on a happy face for her best friend. At least until something calls to her in her sleep and she suddenly vanishes. She’s trapped in the dream world with no hope of getting out, except maybe the man who owns her heart.

Succubus Shadows is weird. The dream world is an interesting place, although it’s quite terrible for Georgina. She’s forced to witness her past and present, but she can’t always tell what’s true and what isn’t. Of course, her past is easier to decipher, but what’s happening in her absence? Is anyone even looking for her? Are they talking about her behind her back? But we all know that Georgina is a fighter. She’s never going to lose hope that someone cares about her and will come looking. But then, there’s the aftermath.

The ending of Succubus Shadows still makes me antsy! Georgina is on the verge of a very big revelation. If you pay attention to the clues (which are much more noticeable upon this reread), you can easily figure it out. But that doesn’t change the fact that it’s big! It’s huge! It’s shocking! It makes my heart hurt just like the rest of this series has! And once Georgina knows for sure, there’s still the matter of what can she even do about it.

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. I was 200% in favor of Seth and Georgie and I don’t think my heart could see her be with someone else (outside of her succubus duties).

Roman also takes on the role of protector in this book, which only strengthens their relationship and trust. Georgie is yet again being attacked by some paranormal creature. This creature attacks Georgie when she is at her weakest, when she is sad, or sleeping. It lures her with melodious sweet songs and beckons her with promises. But when she awakens and comes to, she doesn’t remember getting from point A to point B and is, most of the time, in great danger.

“It was the same thing I’d felt earlier, an alluring, haunting pull that spoke to every part of me. Warm and bright and beautiful. It was everywhere and everything, and I longed to have more of it, to walk forward toward the light that shone with indescribable colors.”

Just when I was getting used to awkward Tawny, another succubus shows up named Simone. She was just downright boring and so very awkward, often times bringing up useless trivia in the middle of conversation.

Simone’s bland demeanor hadn’t lit up exactly, but she’d suddenly become 2 percent more interesting.

What’s more is that she kept hitting on Carter and SETH. Girrrrl, you are messing with two of the most important men in Georgie’s life. I wanted to reach through my Kindle and strangle her.

What I loved about this book was the fact that Mead kept the plot going even after Georgina had been taken out of the human world. She was no longer a part of her friends’ everyday lives and had essentially gone missing. After she succumbed to the Oneroi’s bait, she is placed in a state of constant dreaming. Nyx’s children take Georgie on a journey to her past, a painful place she’d rather not visit.

“They showed me every nightmare I could have, ever fear made flesh. Some things they showed me had already happened—and were almost as bad as the nightmares. I couldn’t tell what was reality anymore.”

My heart broke for her as life after life, you learn about all of her past lives. From the painter who Georgie seemingly betrays to Luc to took a bullet for her. All of these men Georgie loved and all of them Georgie lost. Can her life get any sadder?

Despite the odds stacked against her, Georgie did not give up on Seth. She did not move on in this book at all. And even though Seth was in a relationship with Maddie, his feelings for Georgie were unwavering. I still felt their love burning for one another.

If you haven’t read this series, you absolutely must. If you read and loved Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy series, then you should give this series a try.
