Succubus Shadows - Richelle Mead Review

Succubus Shadows (Georgina Kincaid, Book 5)Succubus Shadows  Georgina Kincaid Book 5) by Richelle Mead
 Published by  Kensington Books
 304 Pages
 ISBN: 0758232004

Blurb: Georgina Kincaid has formidable powers. 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. Georgina's roommate, Roman, is cluttering her apartment with sexual tension. Then there's Simone, the new succubus in town, who's intent on corrupting Seth.

But the real danger lies in the mysterious force that's visiting her thoughts, trying to draw her into a dark, otherworldly realm. Sooner or later, Georgina knows she'll be too weak to resist. And when that happens, she'll discover who she can trust, who she can't--and that Hell is far from the worst place to spend eternity. . .

My Thoughts: There is really not enough I can say about this book or this series for that matter. I stumbled across this series when I first found the urban fantasy genre and it has been one of my favorites since the begining. There is something about Gerorgina that I just adore, I'm not sure what exactly it is that attracts me to her but I find her to be a very "real" character. I find myself laughing with her, greiveing with her, and being 10 shades of confused with her.   I really enjoyed the plot in this book and have so many theories running through my head as to what is up with Georgies contract and how Seth fits into all of it.  I hate to say it but I am still on the fence as far as my feelings for Seth go, at first I was a huge Seth fan but as this series has continued I have had less than glowing emotions for him.  I also have a growing soft spot for Roman I think we got to see a side of him that was only touched on in the first book.  This was one of those books that got in the way of my every day life I just couldn't seem to bring myself to put it down, and I am anxiously awaiting the next book in this series. All in all I would give this book 5 stars and suggest this seires to anyone interested in the Urban Fantasy genre.
