Emilys Gift (Succubus Book 1)
View all 4 comments. Shelves: urban-fantasy , Succubus Revealed is both satisfying and excruciatingly, mind-numbingly predictable. Nothing much except Georgina's personal woes propels this series' finale. The book starts on a fairly ridiculous note - Georgina for some unknown reason works as a Santa helper at a mall.

Continues in the same ridiculous way when she and her gang of friends are forced by Jerome to participate in a bowling tournament with another demon's crew. Things start picking up when Georgina is suddenly transferred to a new locatio Succubus Revealed is both satisfying and excruciatingly, mind-numbingly predictable. Things start picking up when Georgina is suddenly transferred to a new location - Las Vegas.
Only then does our succubus start questioning why the Hell is so involved in her business. And then spends entirely too much time on unveiling the transparent mystery surrounding her contract If you have read previous 5 books in the series, you know exactly how it all will end.
No surprises, no new revelations. An exciting reading experience? The book is not entirely a waste though. It is a one long series' epilogue, a farewell to the characters of sorts.
Melancholy and bitter sweet, with a few touching moments. All in all, this series is not a bad one if you are willing to overlook the fact that the main characters are morally rotten and never truly atone for their indiscretions , but a couple books too long. Richelle Mead 's mistake here is that she stretched her story way too thin, especially in the last two novels that are almost void of mystery and consist mainly of relationship melodrama. Your overwhelming sense of melodrama and despair.

May 10, Emily May rated it it was amazing Shelves: paranormal-uf , It's okay, no spoilers : This was a wonderfully, beautifully, perfect end to this series. It had everything that I've come to love from the Succubus series: a mystery, witty dialogue, my favourite characters and sex, of course. Things drew to a brilliant close that was dramatically fitting for a series of books that have kept me so thoroughly hooked throughout.
Something huge is discovered that would be insane when told by some authors but is cataclysmically awesome when handled by Richelle Mead. Don't you just love it when you arrive at the final installment in a series and there's this great big pulling together of all events and happenings of the previous books? When everything ties together and it becomes apparent that small matters all counted towards the bigger picture and the author knew how it would all come together and explode into an extraordinary climax from the very start.
Like, if you read my updates you will see where I mentioned the lengthy dreams in book 5. I thought it was a case of the author finding something to fill the time because her series was running out of juice - oh, apparently not. Lots of mysteries get solved and questions get answered, all remarkably told in Richelle Mead 's quirky and addictive style. And if you felt that you were losing faith in some of the characters you'd previously loved at the end of the last book, then don't worry, Succubus Revealed restored all my old feelings for Georgie, Seth and their quirky mortal and immortal friends.
Personally, I felt that this book could not have been better, it's my favourite of an extremely enjoyable series. And the conclusion is both happy and sad I will miss these novels very much.

Nov 14, Shannon rated it really liked it Shelves: vampires , color-blue , demons , paranormal-romance , angels , owned , , bought My four-star rating is more for the series in general, so take that as you will.
Succubus Revealed is mostly a two-star book that contains a couple of heart-wrenching four-star scenes with five-star characters whom I've grown to love. I did have some problems with this book, and one of my biggest ones was all of the side trips that were seemingly tied to one another, but were knotted together so haphazardly. Some things got resolved, others didn't.
Some side stories made sense and seemed meaningful, while ot My four-star rating is more for the series in general, so take that as you will. Some side stories made sense and seemed meaningful, while others were throw-aways. Can someone explain to me why they all went bowling?
You know how it's all going to end, but still There are a couple of shockers in the end that I think even the most attentive will be surprised by. Georgina was probably the most likable in this book out of the whole series, and the supporting characters were all fantastic - more so than usual. He is such a great character. I want him to have a spin-off, I really do.

I'm content with this one and its ending, although I know some people won't be. I always liked Georgina, I never hated Roman or Seth, and I enjoyed watching the story unfold even though I knew where she was taking things. I'm sad to see the series come to an end, but it's satisfying that she gave it a conclusive ending instead of stringing us along for umpteen books, some would say the previous book was practically filler and unnecessary, but I digress I have a hard time abandoning a series regardless of how I feel, but I think if you even remotely enjoyed the previous books and the characters, you owe it to yourself to see how Georgina's story ends.
I can't say you'll be happy with the outcome when all is said and done, but you will be glad it's over. View all 22 comments.

There are two things that Richelle Mead does amazingly every time. The first is that she is able to end a series perfectly. Whether it be ending an epic Young Adult series or an Urban Fantasy one, Mead knows exactly how to satisfy her readers after bringing them on a rollercoaster ride. The book starts out fun and light- There are two things that Richelle Mead does amazingly every time. The book starts out fun and light-hearted, hitting the high notes with lots of jokes and silliness. But there is that usual angst that comes with Georgina.
As they say in the book, Georgie can be a little melodramatic. But the woman has a reason to be!

Right when her world seems to be perfect, she gets a notice of transfer from Hell. Wondering that the hell brought this on, Georgie recruits her friend, Roman aka The Nephilim to help her figure this out. This answer and more is revealed in this book. How appropriate that Mead called it Succubus Revealed.

Which leads me to the second thing that Richelle Mead does extremely well - and that is plotting. It all matches up and I love seeing an author who takes pride in making sure there is continuity in her work. For once, I can truly say that I figured this one out. I had my theories going into this book and I think Mead went the right way with this ending. Not only is the ending what every Georgina Kincaid fan wants for our Succubus girl, but it was very touching as well. This passage really proves this point: I tightened my arms around him and drew him toward the bed. And that was the moment I knew what it was like to have my soul back.
