Book: Succubus Revealed, Richelle Mead
Series: Georgina Kincaid #6
Release Date: August 30th, 2011
Rating: 3 stars
I really wish Seth Mortensen was a character I liked. One who was witty, protective, strong, and described as handsome. Seth is not this character. He is a passive, dorky-t-shirt-wearing, shy character whom I wasn’t attracted to at all. So you can understand why when Georgina would spend paragraphs and paragraphs going on about how amazing and awesome Seth is that I would doze off. I was team-Roman the entire series.
This book and series in general, is a 3 star at best. This one had a very flimsy plot, one Mead had to try to draw out to fit into a 300-page book so we also get a load of meaningless subplots that made no sense, like the bowling competition, and of course it gave Mead plenty of space to let Georgina go on about Seth; whether she was gushing about how much she loved him or how sad she was when they were apart because they weren’t together. *gagging sound*
I’m not going to bash this series completely. I did enjoy some characters (Carter, Roman, Jerome) and the way Mead tied up the series was satisfying, albeit predictable.
While in the first few books Mead made the plot a little mysterious (yet I still guessed it on book #1), there is absolutely no mystery in this book. You knew exactly what was going to happen; all you had to do was wait for it to actually begin. While you were waiting you got plenty of monologues of Seth-gushing from Georgina, and very repetitive arguments between the two of them concerning their sex life as well as repetitive arguments between Jerome and Georgina about how dramatic Georgina is about everything.
All in all, a mediocre series. If you want to read a book that acknowledges Mead’s talent, read the Vampire Academy series. The story is more mysterious and interesting; the characters are better described and are not as whiney. That’s why they’re making a movie of that series instead of this one.
