Overview

Georgina Kincaid has been a bad, bad succubus. . .

. . .which should be a good thing. But lately, thanks to her foul mood over breaking up with bestselling writer Seth Mortensen, she's been so wicked that Seattle's über-demon Jerome, decides to "outsource" Georgina to a rival--and have her spy for him in the process.

Being exiled to the frozen north--okay, Vancouver--and leaving Seth in the cozy clutches of his new girlfriend is unpleasant enough. Then Jerome is kidnapped, and all immortals under his control mysteriously lose their powers. One bright spot: with her life-sucking ability gone, there's nothing to keep Georgina from getting down and dirty with Seth--nothing apart from his girlfriend that is. Now, as the supernatural population starts turning on itself, a newly mortal Georgina must rescue her boss and figure out who's been playing them--or all hell will break loose. . .

    LOVE the Characters!

    Richelle Mead certainly knows how to capture my attention... and keep it! I rarely read series consecutively, but haven't been able to put these books down since I started! This urban fantasy combines enough great storyline, great characters, and wit to have you coming back for more! If you liked this series, you will probably also like the authors Keri Arthur, Kim Harrison, Patricia Briggs, Laurell K. Hamilton, and Charlaine Harris.

    I'm so Upset!

    *SOME SPOILERS*

    I have to wait almost 10 months for the next installment in this series. And another 2 months for the next installment in Vampire Academy (another great series by Mead that's worth looking into).

    This series, I really didn't expect to fall in love with it so easily (and so quickly!). When I read the first book (Succubus Blues), something felt off for me. I got the next book after finishing the first one in a matter of hours (Succubus on Top), unsure whether I was buying it because I didn't have anything else to do, or because subconsciously I was addicted. Well, it turned out to be a little bit of the first and a lot of the latter.

    I'm in love with the character Seth. He's actually a lot like me, while Georgina is a lot like who'd I'd like to be. Outgoing, talkative, charming and everything. While Seth is quiet, thoughtful and smart. I also love how each character is so important, even the ones you just meet and see mentioned here and there (Georgina's friends for example), they aren't as flat as you'd think they should be. They're all interesting, they all have personalities that stand out. Peter is a vampire and he loves to cook and decorate, and chastises Georgina for not having a Christmas tree. Cody is a vampire, but lesser to Peter, and he's cute, caring, and shy. Hugh, it's so hard to describe him, but he's an imp, and he's added so much to this book. Carter, he's mysterious, vague in descriptions and answering questions like all of the angles, yet there's something different about him. Lastly, Jerome--I really want to know more about him.

    The guys Mead introduces into Georgina's dynamic love life; Roman and Dante, and also all those flings, even I found them interesting. Roman and Dante significantly more than the flings, of course. It was nice how Dante doted on Georgina, but I prefer Roman. Dante was dark, which I found alluring, but he was too power hungry. Roman is just wanting a place to call home where he doesn't always have to live in fear. In the end, he finds it with Georgina, even after the many threats he made to end her life.

    Mead has so many different characters in this novel. There are so many levels of thought going on here. There are so many different perspectives, although it talks in the first person narrative, Georgina is so much more dynamic than a lot of main characters I've read about in other books.

    I actually hate Maddie. Well, hate's a strong word, but I really just want her to get out of the way for Seth and Georgina. I'm glad that the proposal Seth made wasn't as genuine as the proposal he could have made to Georgina. He gave her a diamond engagement ring, while he mentioned to Georgina that wedding's are extraordinary, and that he'd most likely go with rubies (if I'm remembering correctly).

    I also love how the stray cat appeared at the end. The cat that was in her dreams that Nyx used to distract her from the energy drain.

    The way Mead uses things that happened from her last book to help guide and influence what happens in her next book is extraordinary.

    She seems predictable at first, but she really isn't. She puts so much effort into it, that it never really turns out exactly like you would expect. I mean, from reading the back covers, I easily found out that Georgina and Seth were going to break up, or that Jerome was going to disappear, or that Georgina and Seth were going to have an affair against someone's back. But there was so much more to it.

    The Great Seattle Heist!

    **WARNING CONTAINS SPOILERS** Who would have enough gull to kidnap/summon Seattle's most powerful demon? Jerome has outsourced Georgie's services to his rival archdemon, Cedric, in Vancouver, Canada, with hopes that she will do some snooping for him. It seems that a local group of Satanist, called the Army of Darkness, is making Cedric's Afterlife hell. While Georgie's investigating, Jerome gets summoned and trapped. With Jerome out of the way hell's finest opportunists have lined up to replace him; demons in his sector lose their abilities and go into stasis, making them as vulnerable as humans. The vampires actually get to prance in the sun without turning into crispy tarts and Georgie and Seth make love with no soul sucking repercussions. However, Seth is still with Maddie through all of this; this indulgence with Georgie can potentially affect the purity of his soul. Meanwhile, Georgie and Dante are still an item. Dante seems to bring out the worst in Georgie and he's a sleazy and despicable distraction. To be honest, I have never liked Maddie; there is no way someone can be that jovial. Women's intuition is a powerful mechanism. There is no way that Maddie is as blind as she appears to be. I think that with her putting all her efforts into helping Georgie find a new place, is her way of securing her territory. This book was an emotional rollercoaster and I can't wait for the next book in the series Succubus Shadows in 2010. I highly recommend this book and the rest of the series.

    Richelle Mead is an excellant writer. She has a sense of what her readers want and that's more, more, more...

    Georgina is always finding herself in the worst of spots... She's a great character that never seems to disappoint. I loved everything about this book. I was unable to but it down until I was on the last page and even then I flipped back through the pages.
    I think Succubus Heat is my favorite of the Georgina Kincade series and I hate that I have to wait until March'2010 to read Succubus Shadows. (That is if the release month is accurate)

    GREAT SERIES

    Great book, definitely start with the Kincaid Series #1 or it will not make sense. My only issue is that BN does now sell all of the series so I had to skip two books thus far. And it really isn't good when you are into a series and have to try and play catch up. The book itself is good it is hard not to have to have a feeling of love and sadness about Georgina, you know she is good at heart I hope she finds a way out somehow think she would take it if she could. BUT PEASE CAN ANYONE LET ME KNOW WHY SOME OF THE BOOKS AE UNAVAILABLE???

    If you like twists and turns and SCI-FI/Supernatural then you will like this series it contains it all. Not gory nor a love story just a story about a girl who is trying to do what's best in a world that makes it nearly impossible

    Great SF Read

    I enjoyed the book as it flowed cleanly and builds to the end, it kept my interest and kept the plot lines tight so it was like reading a book with great characters verses reading multiple plot lines that never came together. Excellent just sit down and enjoy. -- I now look for this author and would buy what she writes, as I know I will entertained.

    this book was great!!!!!!!

    In "Succubus Dreams", it ended with the big heartbreaking split between Georgina and Seth. with "Succubus Heat" Georgina as lost her succubus power... leaving the two main charecters into a complicated love triangle. richelle's writing kept me glued all the way to the last page. and left one hell of a cliff hanger for the next book. a charecter we have not seen in a couple of the books comes back (although, i wont say who) makes the whole thing morew complicated and keeps the reader on their toes. the series is amazing and i'm sad for Georgina's story to end. can't wait for Book #6

    I really love this series

    Let me just say, Seth is really an amazing character. He's one of the most realistic, full-of-flaws-but-unbearably-lovable guys I've ever read about and they are undeniably in love with each other. I hope Georgina and Seth find a way - beyond reason - to be together. Maddie is bound to find out what happened at some point and honestly, I can't wait for the fireworks. I tried to like her, but she's seems a bit selfish to me.
    Roman is ok. But he's very much like so many other men in books. I really want the shy guy to come out on top this time. HORRAY FOR THE SHY GUYS!

    OMG!! So Good

    This is the first time in months I jumped while reading a book. This last Kincaid novel was the best in my opinion. Im just upset I read it so early and have to wait till April to read the new novel (BUMMER). I Love the way she gives us a preview on the fifth book ,which also makes me even more impatient because the preview was so good. Don't pass this book up it is most definatly a most read. And don't read any spoilers it ruins the suprises in the books.(in my opinion)

    Meh...

    The quality of Richelle Mead's work seems to be slipping a bit, however the writing style itself was still very readable.

    The characters, though... If you ever liked Seth or Georgina, you're likely to be saying goodbye to that. Mead sets up a character you're supposed to dislike, makes him likable, but then, completely out of left field... Well, you'll see.

    The characters who are supposed to be sympathetic have quickly become less so. This is not one of my favorite books, but if you have some spare time with nothing to read at all, this would not be a horrifying option.

    Succubus Heat INDEED

    Georgina Kincaid: what a delightfully unique heroine. Richelle has won me over completely with this series, and I always look forward to the next one. Heat did not disappoint, the characters continue to be realistic, the bad guys bad, the good ones good, and enough twists to keep me turning the pages. She's layered good and evil in a way that just makes every book worth reading, and I am a firm Mead fan because of it. Only thing I'd like more of: what was in the first book..... Satan as a female is just richly wonderful and twisted.
