We Say Goodbye to Georgina Kincaid
In Georgina Kincaid, succubus and she-demon, #1 New York Times bestselling author Richelle Mead has created one of her most enticing characters. But with a shot at love, and maybe even redemption, is the ultimate seductress finally going soft? Like hell she is. . .
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 operations. . .to 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. . .
Related Post, Richelle Mead Series News, includes a sneak peek look at the first chapter of Succubus Revealed.
Shaman-for-hire Eugenie Markham is the best at banishing entities trespassing in the mortal realm. But as the Thorn Land’s queen, she’s fast running out of ways to end the brutal war devastating her kingdom. Her only hope: the Iron Crown, a legendary object even the most powerful gentry fear…
Who Eugenie can trust is the hardest part. Fairy king Dorian has his own agenda for aiding her search. And Kiyo, her shape-shifter ex-boyfriend, has every reason to betray her along the way. To control the Crown’s ever-consuming powers, Eugenie will have to confront an unimaginable temptation–one that will put her soul and the fate of two worlds in mortal peril…
“Curiouser and curiouser!” ~ Alice
“Twinkle, twinkle, little bat! How I wonder what you’re at.” ~ Mad Hatter
We pick up where Thorn Queen left off. Dorian and Eugenie are united in their fight against the Rowan Queen. Eugenie sets out on a quest to find the Iron Crown in an attempt to end the war. That’s where the story starts to get … odd. I was happily surprised to find I was actually beginning to like Genie’s sister, Jasmine. Dorian remains my favorite character throughout this series. He is who he is and you know what to expect from him. Genie on the other hand was all over the place in this installment. She was frustrated with her “unwanted powers”, but equally paraded it about shouting how powerful she is as the Thorn Queen. There was also a lot of back and forth between the two worlds. While I enjoy a pop-in to check on the roomie, business, etc, this one had me wishing she’d stick to the fae realm.
“What is the use of a book, without pictures or conversations” ~ Alice
“That’s just it. If you don’t think, then you shouldn’t talk.” ~ The Hare
Honestly, I am not quite sure how to rate it. Since I’m undecided on 2.5 or 3 demons, I’ll round up to 3 since I haven’t fully given up hope for Eugenie.
“Take care of the sense, and the sounds will take care of themselves” ~ The Dutchess
“We are all mad here.” ~ The Cheshire Cat
So, this book receives the Cheshire Cat award for characters who evoke such strong reactions from fans – whether good or bad.

No summary available at Goodreads or Author’s Website, but I did find this chapter 1 sneak peek.
Interesting cover. Much different from the previous three which were a lot darker.
#1 New York Times bestselling author Richelle Mead returns to the Otherworld, a mystic land inextricably linked to our own–and balanced precariously on one woman’s desperate courage…

The spell-driven source of the blight isn’t the only challenge to Eugenie’s instincts. Fairy king Dorian is sacrificing everything to help, but Eugenie can’t trust the synergy drawing them back together. The uneasy truce between her and her shape shifter ex-lover Kiyo is endangered by secrets he can’t–or won’t–reveal.
