A Review of Fortuna by Julie Law

Relationships within stories matter, they help to drive the plot, give depth to the characters themselves. Not all relationships have love, some are very dark and troubled. In the same way, the past of a character can shape them, whether they know of that or not. It’s the telling of that past, how it links …

A Review of Incubus: A Jacoby Ash Creature Feature is by M. R. Stover

Incubus: A Jacoby Ash Creature Feature is by M. R. Stover

The one sort of story that I have the most issues with are those in which the summary offers something interesting and then the story doesn’t deliver on that. A work can be described in a way to make it very appealing, but then having the story be a handful of pages with scattered thoughts, …

A Review of To Feed A Succubus by De’Vaughn Brathwaite

To Feed A Succubus by De'Vaughn Brathwaite

The thing about hot flashes that involve Succubi is, of course, that they usually involved not a lot of plot, little in the way of character development for the sake of having the succubus do things to the other character or characters.

A Review of Oops An Incubus Got Me Pregnant! by Vanessa E. Silver

Oops An Incubus Got Me Pregnant! by Vanessa E. Silver

There are far too many works that are short, lack direction and are missing a lot of things. Poor dialogue is a problem, a story without purpose isn’t much of a story to be told. But most of all, leaving the characters with no soul, no life means there can be nothing good that comes …

A Review of Milked by the Incubus by Ruby Thurston

A few months ago I reviewed the prequel work in a new series called Demon Slave and you can find that review here on the Tale. There was, at least to me, a lot of depressive aspects to the story of the main character Zoe and that tended to make that work a difficult read for …
