Georgina Kincaid is tired of being a succubus. She wants to settle down, fall in love and have a family, and her crush on thriller writer Seth Mortensen is doing nothing to change her mind – quite the opposite. But that’ll have to wait until she can shut down whoever’s murdering demons and angels alike in Seattle.
I’d gone in expecting a succubus-in-love story with a chick-lit voice. Not really my thing. But once Georgina got serious and the plot developed, I was surprised, and mightily impressed. The stuff about angels is so fascinating, the drawcard of the novel, but no one alerted me beforehand about this factor. Had I known of its presence, it probably would’ve moved up my reading order.
Social commentary brings books alive for me, makes them feel more real, and I definitely like characters more when I agree with their opinions…
“This country is so in love with itself,” he complained, sipping sake. “It’s like one big mirror. It just sits all day and looks at itself. When it can be bothered to look away, it’s only to tell others ‘do this’ or ‘be just like me.’ Our military and economic policies bully people outside our borders, and inside, conservative groups bully other citizens. I hate it.”
Good thing I already have Books 2, 3 and 4 in the series waiting on my shelf 🙂
