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.
And if that wasn’t bad enough, she’s started having dreams shadowy, dangerous but alluring dreams, dreams that don’t want to let go. These dreams are created by the Oneroi, demons in the service of Nyx, a creature from Hell who’s bent on revenge. These are dreams that can trap their chosen victim and drain their powers through nightmares. This mysterious force that’s visiting her thoughts, is trying to draw her into a dark, otherworldly realm. Sooner or later, Georgina knows she’ll be too weak to resist. And Georgina is powerless as she watches those in the real world try to find her, she comes to understand that her freedom her fate lies in the hands of the only one who can find her soul, who just happens to be the man who s about to marry someone else. She’ll discover who she can trust, who she can’t—and that Hell is far from the worst place to spend eternity…
Okay I will say it at the start: I adore this series and I pre-ordered Succubus Shadows as soon as I could. I was so not disappointed. Succubus Shadows is a great addition to this series and it was a fun and emotional read for me.
I think I fell in love with Seth the moment Georgina did in book 1 and like her I just can’t give him up. The book starts where we last left our favorite succubus and everything is the same: She still knows how to get into trouble. She’s a real master in that. It’s hard to review this book because I don’t want to give you any spoilers if you haven’t the previous ones so I will just talk about my impressions now.
This book made me feel like a really bad person from time to time. It’s hard not to feel bad if you understand a succubus and her decisions in life. Ms. Mead is really good in making you feel for her heroines even if they do something bad. Succubus Shadows also made me cry because of the unfairness of life in general. My heart really hurt while reading this book. It was so wonderful written that it touched my heart from the start. I knew it would make me cry but I just couldn’t stop. Do you know that feeling when you know something will hurt you but you want it nonetheless? That what I feel like while reading a book in this series. The whole setting is a mess and the only thing I really want is a HEA for Georgina. I want it with all my heart and I so hope she get’s it in the next book.
This book is a must read in this genre like all the Georgina Kincaid series. Recommended to all who love Paranormal Romance.
I give this book 5 out of 5 bookies.
