A Review of Eastern Jam by Gwen Alexander

Eastern Jam by Gwen Alexander

Short stories really shouldn’t have short summaries. That, at least to me, does nothing to offer any sort of an idea to a reader what the story is about, if they want to read it, and what awaits within the pages. It’s a shame when an author doesn’t make some effort in their summary as …

A Review of Holy Hell: A Mistress Victoria Fantasy by Vivian S. Vice

Holy Hell: A Mistress Victoria Fantasy by Vivian S. Vice

There are some stories involving succubi that appear quite often. One of the most common have a corrupting the innocent theme and a transformational theme usually comes along in the story as well. This can mean the story has some lovely heat in it, that there is a bit of succubus mind control and seduction …

A Review of Supernatural by Juliette Lubach

Supernatural by Juliette Lubach

Not all stories that have a succubus appearing in them make that character out to be something more than ‘just a succubus’. Sometimes she is evil, really over the top so, and sometimes that turns out to be interesting. Sometimes not so much so when it’s hard to get past some of the things she …

A Review of Vetusis: A Short Paranormal Mystery by Shelby Blake

Vetusis: A Short Paranormal Mystery by Shelby Blake

Not all stories with succubi or incubi need to be erotic at their core. Occasionally the better story is one that lurks just underneath, the hint that something isn’t right, that the characters need to work out what’s wrong and deal with it. It’s more interesting when the truth is discovered and one isn’t quite …

A Review of Manhattan Sucks by Dou7g and Amanda Lash

You can find my review of the first work in the series here, in which the wonderful wit brought me a smile as this author always does. The ensemble cast of characters are wonderful together, but there are stories …

A Review of Lair of The Succubus by Sheba Griffins

Lair of The Succubus by Sheba Griffins

A review today of the first work in a series called Lucifer and Lilith by Sheba Griffins which has an interesting premise as a whole, but gives me pause. The thing about using such characters is that there is a certain viewpoint that readers have of them. Being so, trying to tell a story with them …

A Review of Bad Dreams by Brantwijn Serrah

Bad Dreams by Brantwijn Serrah

There aren’t very many stories which use the idea of sleep paralysis as the basis for driving a story forwards. That’s surprising really as it does link into the myth of incubi as a whole. Possibly the largest problem in doing so is that managing to make the story not be too clinical and have some …
