Georgina Kincaid, Book 6
Synopsis: Georgina Kincaid has had an eternity to figure out the opposite sex, but sometimes they still surprise her. Take Seth Mortensen. The man has risked his soul to become Georgina’s boyfriend. Still, with Lucifer for a boss, Georgina can’t just hang up her killer heels and settle down to domestic bliss. In fact, she’s being forced to transfer operations. . .to Las Vegas.
The City of Sin is a dream gig for a succubus, but Georgina’s allies are suspicious. Why are the powers-that-be so eager to get her away from Seattle and from Seth? Georgina is one of Hell’s most valuable assets, but if there’s any way out of the succubus business she plans to take it, no matter how much roadkill she leaves behind. She just hopes the casualties won’t include the one man she’s risking everything for. . .
Review: And here is the final book in the Richelle Mead series! I was really curious to see the finality of the history and to understand everything. It’s true that we began to glimpse the truth over the novels and I’m glad to see that I had understood at least a part of the truth. I confess, that I did not understand EVERYTHING, otherwise it would have been too simple but in any case a small part. I did not expect to have so many revelations and as much details but I loved this last novel, perhaps even more than some before. It allows us to understand all the little things that have been initiated and the depth of the characters.
Georgina finally spins the perfect love with Seth and her life is happier, but of course everything would be simpler if it could go on like this. So when our succubus receives an unexpected letter, she did not realize that her life would change that way. Indeed, our beloved heroine receives orders to leave Seattle for Las Vegas for a new assignment. A job that mysteriously coincides with the death of Erik or the strange name given by Seth. But whereas Roman is convinced that there is something fishy, it is more difficult for our heroine to understand or see what happens. And the ramifications of this impromptu requests are much deeper than we might have initially thought. I liked how the author managed to make us discover the truth about the characters and the history of each.
I had much trouble when I realized that our succubus would fail to love Roman, especially after all he had done for her. And I admit that this is still the case as it is a character that I particularly enjoy. But this conclusion also allows us to understand better the choices of Georgina. And even if this is not what I would have chosen for her, I approve what is happening and then Seth became a little friendlier. Besides, the two characters have evolved a lot and I was glad to see the determination of this man who is still actually quite erased from the story. However, I was more surprised to see the lack of fighting spirit of our heroine at the beginning of the novel. But of course, it changes fast enough and I loved the way the events are realized.
So it was a very good volume and I’m glad to say that the end was very well found although I would have liked to know more about Roman, because I still have many questions about him.
I FINALLY have book 1, so…soon, just as I have finished these other books
I really must get caught up on these. I’d be greedy. Can I have Seth AND Roman? lol
I love Richelle Mead, but I haven’t yet tried this series! Maybe I need to do that:) Sounds like we have a bit of a love triangle over the course of the series with Seth and Roman in play as romantic interests, but love triangles never seem to bother me as much in UF as they do in YA. Not sure why! Glad this wa a solid series end for you:)
I did love Roman too, but wasn’t surprised. Wonderful review 🙂
Mhmmmmmmmmm. I am curious……
This was my first Mead series and I absolutely loved it! I think I read them all in like a week or something LOL! So happy you are reading them!
I’ve been dying to give another one of her books a try. I read Mead for the first time last year, with one of her YA novels and it just didn’t work for me. This time I’ll probably pick up one of her adult novels. So you would recommend this series? 😀
No not this one particulary, maybe her sci-fi one
This is a series that I haven’t started. I’ve seen it around for many years, but alas, just couldn’t fit it into my reading schedule. So many books and authors to try. Not a bad problem to have. I’m really glad this wrapped up mostly well for you, even if you didn’t learn everything about Roman that you would’ve liked.
Glad this ended well for you. I’ve done my best to avoid these books because I don’t know if I could like Georgina’s job, to be honest. Lol. The whole sleeping around thing does not bode well with me.
Glad to see you enjoyed the final book! I need to read book one 😛
I’ve only read one book in the series and it was somewhere in the middle. What? Me read out of order? 🙂 I did enjoy it and I so need to start this series from the beginning. Now that I know you enjoyed the last book, I really need to tackle these.
I’ve only read Succubus Blues, but I do plan to continue this series. I already have the next book, I just need the others. Great review!
This cover really doesn’t match the previous books in the series, lol. I read the first book in the series and I liked the author thing, but I never felt like picking the rest up 🙁
It’s been so long since I’ve been here! Any ways I started this series years ago and I have to say I was addicted but I don’t think I continued after book 2 or 3 as it was such a long time ago. But you’ve reminded me to continue them again. Great review.
Sometimes our fav characters choices are hard to take.
