Succubus on Top by Richelle Mead

I love paranormal fiction and this was one of the best ones that I’ve read. Yes, it has a lot of romance in it and I’ve always said that I prefer my reads to be paranormal with a little romance rather than romance with a little bit of paranormal, but it works in this novel. Plus this was more half and half anyway.

Georgina Kincaid is a succubus with moral ethics. She’s supposed to be one of the bad guys, but in reality, she does more good then harm. In this sequel, we get to see her relationship with Seth develop and also get to sneak a peek into her past when a long time friend comes to town for a visit. Along with her friend from the past, comes trouble. Trouble seems to follow Georgina wherever she goes. She has to find a way to keep her friend from being sent to the outskirts and to help her co-workers battle a drug that makes them think they are gods.

I really enjoyed this chapter in the series. We get to learn about the realm of gods and different religions and how they all play into Richelle Mead’s world. She plays with the idea that gods, demons, spirits and all things supernatural from different religions and cultures exist, but only if they are still believed in. The more you believe in one deity, the more power that deity will gain.

    This book sounds interesting! the only problem is that it is a sequel and I haven’t read the first one… And I probably won’t cause I am not that much of a reader, but if they make a movie out of it then I will soooo go see it! 😛

    This review was very informative and didn’t really give out any spoilers so in my critic rating scale you get a 8.5! Congratulation and keep up the good work!
