It seems completely unfair that a she-demon whose purpose is seduction can't get hot and heavy with the one mortal who knows and accepts her for what she is.

28/12 - Really Georgina, drugs?! I am so disappointed in you. *sighs and shakes her head in disgust* Besides my annoyance with her behaviour I'm surprised that alcohol or drugs would affect her anyway. She's immortal, which I would take to mean that she doesn't need to eat or drink, or breathe and that drugs (and other stimulants) would do nothing to her body. I don't really understand why Mead wrote that scene in. Nope, still just stupid. To be continued...

SPOILERS FROM NOW ON!

28/12 - Hands up who thinks the mysterious 'Goth supernatural being' guy is some kind of evil muse? That would be me! He feeds them (them being Doug and Casey) some kind of creative juices, which gets them all hyper (the by-product of this being a period of super-creativity) and then when they've generated huge amounts of energy he sucks it all out of them, leaving them so low they become depressed and possibly suicidal (no actual evidence of that, yet, just going on the things Doug's saying).

I'm also getting weird 'I might be a supernatural being in disguise' vibes from Dana and the feeling that Bastien hasn't told Georgina the whole truth about his mission to bring down Dana the homophobic, racist radio talk show host. I mean, it doesn't make any sense to me why Bastien would go to so much trouble over one small-town, small-time nasty person. Isn't he simply a male counter-part for Georgina? If so, why doesn't he simply go after random women with good souls as Georgina is doing, mostly, within the male population? Now that I think about it Dana doesn't even seem like a good target to start with. Considering her true personality I wouldn't think she'd have nearly as much good energy as some of her less hypocritical and hate-filled neighbours, like Jodi for instance. She'd have lots more energy for Bastien to take, making her a much more logical target (especially after all the resistance he's come up against from her). To be continued...

Later - Eureka! A light bulb just hit me! She's (Dana) a lesbian! That's why nothing Bastien does is working, and that's why she was so weirdly solicitous of Georgina, but at the same time looked at her with disgust. She hates herself for how she feels and hates Georgina for 'making' her feel that way. Now her behaviour makes more sense, and I no longer think it likely that there's anything supernatural about her. Strangely enough I was just wondering whether Incubi and Succubi target gay people for their energy. There's been no discussion on the topic, so far. But then, saying that, if Dana is a lesbian what's to stop Bastien from turning into Tabitha instead of Mitch and getting to Dana in that way? Georgina said it used up a lot more energy to switch genders than it does to simply change clothes or hair colour, but wouldn't it be worth it for this supposed big score Bastien thinks Dana is? To be continued...

Later - So, most of my guesses at where the plot was going were wrong. No one found the evil crystals in Georgina's bag, the Goth guy was not a muse, and Dana definitely wasn't supernatural in anyway. I did pick Dana's lesbianism, though, and like Georgina I was kind of sorry that she had to be brought down via her choice of sexual partner. Even though she was clearly a not nice person who needed to be stopped from spouting any further hate, I wish Bastien could have come up with a way to bring her down that didn't involve using her lesbianism against her, making it a shameful thing to admit to. That experience isn't going to make her any less hate-filled, it just means she won't have a platform to yell about it from. That last scene between Georgina and Seth was hot enough to make me want to fan myself at the breakfast table while I waited for my toast to pop. I don't consider this series to be romance, it's supernatural/fantasy that has sex scenes in it, but that last scene was almost enough to make me change my mind. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

i love richelle in general, but it seems she woes me in every single book she's written from the vampire academy series to the age of the x to the blood lines, dark swan and her georgina kinkaid series

I must say my respect for Mead has risen. I was halfway expecting her to end this book in the obvious, clichéd, way and I’m so glad she—and Georgina—had more sense than that.
