Succubus Heat (Georgina Kincaid Series #4)

Succubus Heat  - Richelle Mead If you are Canadian, you will most likely enjoy some of the cultural references in this book. We Canadians are very proud of some of our institutions: Hockey Night in Canada, our politeness, and Tim Horton’s. What is Tim Horton’s? It’s a place to go and get your double double early in the morning on the way to take your kids to hockey practice. What’s a double double? A coffee with 2 creams and 2 sugars. No venti lattes there. And they do make yummy Timbits. That’s donut holes to the rest of the world. So what does Tim Horton’s have to do with Richelle Mead’s Succubus Heat? That’s where The Army of Darkness, a group of Canadian Satanists (yes, Canadian Satanists) went to plot their next nefarious move. I’m sorry, I was having way too much fun giggling during these parts. Wait a minute, I was being Canadian, apologizing. This is another great book in the series. I really like the company that Georgina keeps – well most of the time. I love the interaction of the lesser immortals, the demons, the vampires, the angels, and the human world. In this book Georgina’s gets assigned to helping Cedric, Jerome’s counterpart in Vancouver, keep track of The Army of Darkness and keep them from embarrassing the real demon presence in the city. Of course nothing is what it seems and Georgina is thrown into a turf war, with some time off her succubus duties. The cast of characters makes this book enjoyable. Carter, the angel is one of my favorites although his non-involvement policy was beginning to wear thin in this book. I loved how the vampires relished their new found freedom. Cedric, the Vancouver demon was especially funny. His idea of causing chaos was playing with Wikipedia entries on the internet. Seth – well, I haven’t decided if I like him or not yet.I enjoyed this book immensely. I felt a closer connection to Georgina’s character. Her break from her succubus duties turned her into a sleuth. It also allowed her a taste of humanity. A taste of a future that was foretold by Nyx. I am running to the library now to pick up the next book in the series.
