Succubus Dreams
A Georgina Kincaid Novel

by Richelle Mead

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…

  • Chaos

  • M/F
  • Masturbation
  • Exhibitionism

  • I'm struggling with what to say... I am still kinda stunned at the conclusion of this book (which I finished yesterday).

  • In general, I see a pattern emerging here. It is even directly addressed by Carter at one point in the book, Georgina seems to attract higher powers. And not all good—for sure.

  • I kinda really hated this story, in a good way of course. The previous two in the series are not extremely light hearted, but this one addresses much darker issues.

  • Relationships take on a serious tone. Love based on relationships where the lover's can't possibly relate. Is it enough?

  • Life lessons are easily pulled from the drama that unfolds.

  • Georgina seems to flicker at the end... will the small light of goodness go out of her?

  • If you are following along in the series, this story twists the fates of multiple main characters and introduces new players. Players with potential.

  • I was left with a few questions at the end... but that simply drew me into the next book, Succubus Heat!

  • Give yourself over to the emotion of this series and experience the torture of eternity.
