SUCCUBUS ON TOP: Fiction, Young Adult, Supernatural
AUTHOR: Richelle Mead
SUMMARY (From the Richelle Mead Website):
Georgina Kincaid's job sucks. Literally.
Love hurts, and no one knows it better than Georgina Kincaid. If she so much as kisses her new boyfriend, she’ll drain his life force. Georgina is a succubus—a demon who draws her power from other men’s pleasure. Admittedly, the shape-shifting and immortality perks are terrific, and yes, Georgina did choose to join the ranks of hell centuries ago. But it seems completely unfair that a she-demon whose purpose is seduction can’t get hot and heavy with the one mortal who knows and accepts her for who she is.
It’s not just her personal life that’s in chaos. Doug, Georgina’s co-worker at a local bookstore, has been exhibiting bizarre behavior, and Georgina suspects that something far more demonic than double espressos is at work. She could use help finding out, but Bastien, an irresistibly charming incubus and her best immortal friend, is preoccupied in the suburbs with corrupting an ultra-conservative talk radio star — and giving Georgina some highly distracting come-hither vibes. Georgina is going to have to work solo on this one—and fast because soon, Doug’s life won’t be the only one on the line…
Demons are scary.
No matter what religion or walk of life you come from, this remains pretty constant. Oh sure, they have their absurd moments — especially in the circles I run with — but all in all, people have good reason to fear and avoid Hell’s diabolical servants. They’re cruel and merciless, delight in pain and suffering, and torture souls in their free time. They lie. They steal. They cheat on their taxes.
Yet, in spite of all that, I couldn’t help but think I was about to witness the most terrifying demonic act yet.
An awards ceremony. For me.
This Certifies that:
LETHA (alias Georgina Kincaid), Succubus in the Archdiocese of Seattle, Washington, United States of America, North America, Earth has hereby Excellently Exceeded and Surpassed Requisite Succubus Quotas in this Most Recent Quarter, demonstrating outstanding performance in seduction, damnation, and corruption of human souls.
MSM Speaks: Ah! So I secretly love YAs. (Thou shall not judge, thou shall not be judged!) Especially when they are action packed - and I mean the kick-boxing and killing the hell out of someone, and not the kind that you thought instantly, you naughty you! Our lovely succubus Georgina (aka Georgie as Jerome calls her) is back in this second installment with more mysteries to solve along with the Holier Than Thou angle.

Richelle has referred to Indian mythology as well as other sources which make her impeccable as a writer. In Succubus on Top, she tries to balance the emotional and practical feelings of a daemon, which is not easy while trying to maintain a literary finesse. MSM Recommends!
My Rating: 4/5 *Sassiest YA with boredom breakers!*
