Review: Succubus Blues

Succubus Blues
Succubus Blues by Richelle Mead
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really liked this book! I picked it up because of the Vaginal Fantasy book club and read it within two days. I loved the easy, glib, humorous writing style. Georgina is a fascinating character – a demon succubus who rebels (as much as she feels she can) against her. I enjoyed the relationships between the other characters in the book, especially the interesting friendship between angel Carter and demon Jerome. I recently read Tad Williams’ Dirty Streets of Heaven for Sword and Laser and couldn’t help but think about that when the book referenced the great cosmic battle and struggle between good and evil. I think this was an interesting beginning exploration of the roles of lesser demons/immortals and I look forward to discovering more about the world struggle. I loved the way the story unfolded with bits of lore (Georgina’s own past lore and that of the epic struggle). I will definitely be reading more of Georgina (I am also finally likely to read Storm Born by Mead which has been on my kindle forever).

Meghan is an environmental scientist by trade but an artist at heart. She loves all things geeky/nerdy and is frequently found with less geeky friends rolling their eyes at her. She often spouts all kinds of pop culture trivia and nonsense stemming from her avid love of movies, music, art, and books. If not curled up with a book (she reads at least one a week) or comic, she can be found painting with something on a screen to distract her. She wishes she was as cool as Veronica Mars or as Kate Daniels. Besides blogging about comics here you can also find her exploring around twitter, instagram, tumblr, pinterest, goodreads, and trying to keep up appearances on her own blog.
