Book Reivew- Succubus Dreams

I finished reading Succubus Dreams by Richelle Mead last night.

From the back cover:

Some days, a girl just can't catch a break...especially when the girl in question is Georgina Kincaid, a shape-shifting succubus who gets her energy from seducing men. First there's her relationship with gorgeous bestselling writer Seth Mortensen, which is unsatisfying on a number of levels. It's not just that they can't have sex in case Georgina inadvertantly kills him (generally a turn-off for most guys). Lately, even spending time together is a challenge. Seth's obsessed with finishing his latest novel, and Georgina's under demonic orders to mentor the new (and surprisingly inept) succubus on the block.

Then there are the dreams. Someone, or something, is preying on Georgina at night, draining her energy, and supplying eerie visions of her future. Georgina seeks answers from Dante, a dream interpreter with ties to the underworld, but his flirtatious charm only leaves her more confused--especially as the situation with Seth reaches crisis point. Now Georgina faces a double challenge--rein in her out-of-control love life, and go toe-to-toe with an enemy capable of wreaking serious havoc among mankind. Otherwise, Georgina, and the entire mortal world, may never sleep easy again...

Ok..maybe its because I stayed up til 2am to finish the book and was really tired, but I did not like the ending to this book. Don't get me wrong, it definitely works and is a surprise and makes for a good story. But it made me sad. Richelle Mead is so good at writing that I could completely feel the pain that Georgina was going through. Going to bed last night, I just felt melancholy...I could totally relate to how she was feeling. I am hoping what made me so sad about this book will change in the next book, Succubus Heat, and I can't wait to get my hands on it...I'm hooked!

I gave this book a rating of 4/5.
