Book review: Succubus Dreams - Richelle Mead

sd This is the third book in Richelle Mead's Georgina Kincaid series about a succubus and her posse of immortal friends and colleagues. In Succubus Dreams, Georgina has to contend with a new succubus in town and not only does she have to mentor this particularly useless new recruit, she also has to figure out why the angel mafia is in town and who or what is sucking her succubus energy out of her body during her dreams.
Mead continues her character development in this book and manages to escape the trap of falling into comfortable and familiar stories and patterns in this third installment. I really enjoyed this book and as usual, my favourite characters were the jaded and sardonic angels and we were treated to a whole gang of them this time! What is the collective noun for a gang of angels anyway?
I wouldn't say this is my favourite book in the series so far. That might be because I didn't like the ending but that fact makes me respect Mead for delivering an ending that people aren't necessarily going to like. Also, I think it is that I specifically liked the Nephilim mythology in the first novel and so that will always be my favourite in the series.
This was a competent third novel in the series and it makes me look forward to the next instalment in the series. In the mentime, I've started reading Mead's young adult novel Vampire Academy. It is okay so far but I am not yet finding it as engaging as the Georgina Kincaid series.

For keeping me delighted after the third book, I give this one four stars. It loses a star because the ending was sad but that also paves the way for a higher rating of the next book.
