Sheep Book Review: Succubus Revealed by Richelle Mead

Succubus Revealed, by author Richelle Mead, is the sixth and final story in her Georgina Kincad series. The end has finally arrived and after all the back and forth between Seth and Georgina how will it end? I was thankful for what I got but would have liked just a little bit more....

Georgina Kincaid has had an eternity to figure out the opposite sex, but sometimes they still surprise her. Take Seth Mortensen. The man has risked his soul to become Georgina's boyfriend. Still, with Lucifer for a boss, Georgina can't just hang up her killer heels and settle down to domestic bliss. In fact, she's being forced to transfer Las Vegas.The City of Sin is a dream gig for a succubus, but Georgina's allies are suspicious. Why are the powers-that-be so eager to get her away from Seattle - and from Seth? Georgina is one of Hell's most valuable assets, but if there's any way out of the succubus business she plans to take it - no matter how much roadkill she leaves behind. She just hopes the casualties won’t include the one man she’s risking everything for...

After a few years dipping into the world of this book series I have become completely invested in this story arc. Each character, both good and bad, made their way into my heart. I wanted to tear into this book like a mad woman, but had to slow down and take each page one at a time. Book six takes us deeper into the mysterious contract Georgina entered centuries ago, and while hints have been made in previous books about the validity of said contact, until now we didn't know the specific details. Finally, Succubus Revealed gives the whole story for expectant readers...

Georgina and Seth's relationship has been off and on so far, and as Hell heats things up this dynamic couple may just crumble under the pressure. Again. The one and only thing that's bugged me throughout this whole series was the fact that after Georgina cheated on her husband centuries ago, she does the most selfish thing possible and not woman up to her mistake. Instead she takes the chicken way out and sells her soul to Hell in exchanged for everyone in her human life having no memory of her. I get that she was a kid and all that back when she did this, but for Georgina having lived for many decades and not matured at all was irritating. When push came to shove this gal would just take off and leave everything behind, again and again.

Now Georgina's FORCED to face the music and it's pretty nice to finally read that after all these years she's grown up enough to do it. *Semi-Spoiler alert* BUT Seth makes a bad call at the end when he takes off to an event rather then stick around after another life-changing event goes down. Not sure if I truly believed his character would act that way but it's what the writer went for. *End of semi-spoiler alert* My man-cake Carter's character has been one of my favorites this entire saga, I love that guy. Even grunged out and smashed from an all-nighter I'd still follow his Angel butt anywhere! So much happens between Roman and Jerome that I didn't see coming, it's emotional in parts and well worth the wait.

These books are wonderfully written and full of snarky snappy remarks from a bunch of immortals that make you laugh. It's a bittersweet ending, though, and while I loved reading the final chapter it broke my heart a little too. I'll hold high hopes for a spin off series and more Carter!

Getting 4 'I love boxed wine' Sheep


  1. Carter is the best thing in the whole series. I haven't read this book yet as I want to hold on to my fantasy of Georgina dumping that annoying Seth and running off with Carter.

    1. LOL I feel the same way!!! Carter is amazing and she should totally be with him. :) I hope we get a spin off with Carter! xo

  2. I haven't read this series but it sounds good. Ever since watching that new show Lost Girl about a succubus, I've been wanting to read a book about one too.

    1. It's a good series for sure, you grow attached to these characters and all the drama that ensues. Hope you get a chance to start it soon. :)
