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 . . . "Mead cooks up an appetizing debut that blends romantic suspense with a fresh twist on the paranormal."--Booklist "The mix of supernatural mystery, romance and reluctant succubus is great fun."--Locus "An engaging read."--Jim Butcher, New York Times bestselling authorshow more

Our customer reviews

First of all, the book isn't what it may seem from first impression; it is not a novel full of extremely erotic sex scenes (even though there's 2 good ones). Succubus blues is Richelle Mead's debut novel and let me tell you it is one fine debut! I read this book a few months ago, so I had to chance to read the first 3 books back-to-back and I had a very hard time to put them down. Georgina has been "reborn" in ancient Greece and after centuries of seducing mortals and sucking their life energy she's kind of blaze. Working as an assistant manager in a book store and navigate through eternity dreaming of love, romance and kids. None of which is possible due to her deal with hell. Mead built a world where hell is an administrative business, and Georgina is at the bottom of the food chain. Her 2 vampires buddies, an imp and her are the mains demons under Jerome (arch-demon with Johhn Cusack fantasies) control, who is more then friendly with a local angel, Carter. Trouble starts when some immortals are found heavily beaten up or simply dead and heaven and hell rallies their fire power to eliminate the menace. As mentioned before the novel isn't really action based (the end is one hell of an ending tho!), you cruise along with Georgina's trouble in her love life, or should I say lack of, you really come to love Mead's characters and feel for them. Kinkaid is one snappy little bitch when she wants to and what could be a very depressing situation turns out to be funny thanks to her sense of more
