SUCCUBUS ON TOP: Fiction, Young Adult, Supernatural

AUTHOR: Richelle Mead


Georgina Kincaid's job sucks. Literally.
Love hurts, and no one knows it better than Georgina Kincaid. If she so much as kisses her new boyfriend, she’ll drain his life force. Georgina is a succubus—a demon who draws her power from other men’s pleasure. Admittedly, the shape-shifting and immortality perks are terrific, and yes, Georgina did choose to join the ranks of hell centuries ago. But it seems completely unfair that a she-demon whose purpose is seduction can’t get hot and heavy with the one mortal who knows and accepts her for who she is.

It’s not just her personal life that’s in chaos. Doug, Georgina’s co-worker at a local bookstore, has been exhibiting bizarre behavior, and Georgina suspects that something far more demonic than double espressos is at work. She could use help finding out, but Bastien, an irresistibly charming incubus and her best immortal friend, is preoccupied in the suburbs with corrupting an ultra-conservative talk radio star — and giving Georgina some highly distracting come-hither vibes. Georgina is going to have to work solo on this one—and fast because soon, Doug’s life won’t be the only one on the line…

EXCERPT:


Demons are scary.
No matter what religion or walk of life you come from, this remains pretty constant. Oh sure, they have their absurd moments — especially in the circles I run with — but all in all, people have good reason to fear and avoid Hell’s diabolical servants. They’re cruel and merciless, delight in pain and suffering, and torture souls in their free time. They lie. They steal. They cheat on their taxes.
Yet, in spite of all that, I couldn’t help but think I was about to witness the most terrifying demonic act yet.
An awards ceremony. For me.

MSM Speaks: Ah! So I secretly love YAs. (Thou shall not judge, thou shall not be judged!) Especially when they are action packed - and I mean the kick-boxing and killing the hell out of someone, and not the kind that you thought instantly, you naughty you! Our lovely succubus Georgina (aka Georgie as Jerome calls her) is back in this second installment with more mysteries to solve along with the Holier Than Thou angle.
Yes! I had to put her up! Image Source: seattletimes.com
So, we know now that Georgie and Seth (the shy, nerdy, über famous mortal writer) are sort of dating, minus the whole physical thing which is a massive achievement for a succubus (Irony?), when Bastien who is the Oldest and the bestest friend Georgie has, arrives with a case to solve. Oh, and Bastien, is an Incubus! The said case is to attract Dana, a hypocritical socialite woman and check her in for eternal damnation. So Georgie plays Tabitha, who is Bastien's (Mitch) sister. As if the whole thing wasn't enough, Emerald Bookstore's manager Doug has been acting up weird off late. With super speed and a Rocking rock band, he is reaching heights which aren't possible to touch without an immortal interference. The plot proceeds with Georgina trying to help Bastien and discover a side to herself she has long forgotten - in her quest of loving a mortal. There may be perks of dating a writer, but the downside isn't very appealing, what with lack of attention and fragility. With Paige, her store manager, out for pregnancy and Warren on a world tour, Georgina has her plate overflowing. And there's that thing of corrupting mortal men.

Lines in relationships blur as Georgina eventually escapes into reality which is weirder than her supernatural life. When the mystery about Doug's behavior starts to get convoluted and a lot more people start getting affected, Georgina has to take a stand. Surprisingly, Carter - the not so angelic angel allows Georgie to look deeper into the matter. Emotions and Good Judgement collide and our lady might find herself a midst this new Godly storm brewing. Will she survive it or give up, to save a million lives?

Richelle has referred to Indian mythology as well as other sources which make her impeccable as a writer. In Succubus on Top, she tries to balance the emotional and practical feelings of a daemon, which is not easy while trying to maintain a literary finesse. MSM Recommends!

My Rating: 4/5 *Sassiest YA with boredom breakers!*

  6. I dont need to buy this, do i? Absolutely not. Because you do an exemplary job of letting us know what to expect in the book in your own original way.

    Ofcourse, hardcore YA fans do NEED to buy it. And they will, i suppose, after reading your review.
