A Review of Succubus Games by Lila Shaw

Succubus Games by Lila Shaw

Many of the works that Lila Shaw has written have run both hot and cold for me over time. Some of the Succubi she creates are really quite wonderful and I enjoy reading their stories. For the most part that’s what I look forward to when I open one of her works and it is …

A Review of The Queen by Christina Barr

The Queen by Christina Barr

One’s character is, truly, the single most important thing in all honesty that you need to defend. It says who you are, what you believe in, and, more importantly, it speaks to your own wishes, dreams and hopes. There are, always, forces that try to bend you from that. To tear apart that which you …

Demon's Salvation by Layla Cole

I am going to review a series of short works by the author Layla Cole today. It is a collection called the Incubus Chronicles by this author and I thought that it had some interesting aspects within it. They are short works, which really is the only thing about them that is somewhat a shame, …

A Review of Bound to Hell by Carl East

Bound to Hell by Carl East

Having an adventure, no matter how interesting, no matter how action packed. cannot make up for that. It is their voice that matters. They have to have personality. They have to be …

A Review of The Succubus Series by Vanna B

The Succubus: Sins of the Flesh by Vanna B.

One of the things that bothers me more than anything else when someone writes a story about Succubi is that they appear as being, for lack of a better description, beautiful monsters. They are written as creatures with no soul, no real caring within them. They are simply existing in the story as a means …
