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).
