Book Review: Succubus Dreams by Richelle Mead

Succubus Dreams by Richelle Mead
  • Paperback: 304 pages
  • Publisher: Kensington; First Edition Thus edition (October 1, 2008)
Amazon Description:

Some days, a girl just can't catch a break. . .

. . .especially when the girl in question is Georgina Kincaid, a shape-shifting succubus who gets her energy from seducing men. First there's her relationship with gorgeous bestselling writer Seth Mortensen, which is unsatisfying on a number of levels. It's not just that they can't have sex in case Georgina inadvertently kills him (generally a turn-off for most guys). Lately, even spending time together is a challenge. Seth's obsessed with finishing his latest novel, and Georgina's under demonic orders to mentor the new (and surprisingly inept) succubus on the block.

Then there are the dreams. Someone, or something, is preying on Georgina at night, draining her energy, and supplying eerie visions of her future. Georgina seeks answers from Dante, a dream interpreter with ties to the underworld, but his flirtatious charm only leaves her more confused--especially as the situation with Seth reaches crisis point. Now Georgina faces a double challenge--rein in her out-of-control love life, and go toe-to-toe with an enemy capable of wreaking serious havoc among mankind. Otherwise, Georgina, and the entire mortal world, may never sleep easy again. . .

This is the third book in Richelle Mead's Georgina Kincaid series. I have enjoyed every book so far, but I would have to say this has probably been my favorite. Emotions run high in the story and I found myself on the verge of tears multiple times. Georgina is a character that I have come to know well and care about...I feel a real connection, so when she goes through terrible things I truly sympathize with her character and wish things would go right for her. She definitely needs a break. It is kind of funny that the author is writing about this person who basically works for hell, but the readers root for her.

In Succubus Dreams, Georgina keeps having these vivid dreams that leave her drained. She has no idea what is going on but she decides to investigate. Of course this isn't the only messed up thing going on in her life because with her, when it rains it pours. Her life just seems to be unraveling. Just a warning to readers, you should have Succubus Heat (Book #4) already when you go to read this book because the second you finish you are going to want to continue on immediately.
