Succubus In The City

It’s out! Yay! 

Succubus in the City 

There was one review elsewhere on the web that sort of is… Poor? 

“When you’re a single, hard-working woman in New York City, it’s hard enough to find a good man,” this from the PR material. “When you’re a succubus, you’ve got a completely different problem altogether!” We can only imagine. Succubus in the City (Del Rey) by Nina Harper, a third generation Manhattanite, is meant to be the first book in a new series. The premise is silly, but the writing is sharp, and the story is engaging even if it is absurd. Think Carrie Bradshaw (without some of the intellectualizing) meets Elvira (with lower still morality) and you’re kinda close.Unlike a lot of what protagonist Lily consumes, Succubus in the City is empty calories, meant to amuse rather than enlighten. Sometimes that’s enough.

   At least in the end it was given something of a compliment as back handed as it was…
