A Review of Desired by the Demons by Amber Delray

Desired by the Demons by Amber Delray

Desired by the Demons by Amber Delray

Sometimes there are stories that offer characters that seem to be more than what they appear to be. By that I mean there are hints about them, who they are, what they want, but the story doesn’t quite go into that much. The characters don’t develop much because the point f the work tends towards getting to the erotic moments as quickly as possible.

It’s a little more bothersome when the story begins with two characters who work well together and then one of them leaves before really anything of consequence happens. When that happens part of the story leaves with them and, as a whole, investing time into a character to have them just walk out of the story seems wrong.

The work is about:

Two Dominant Demons…

Ann is willing to sell her soul for the ultimate sensual satisfaction.

But when the Gates of Hell open wide to grant her wish, she gets more than she ever dreamed possible.

Beware of what you wish for … some sins can never be forgiven.

Ann is not exactly enjoying her birthday. Her best friend comes over and they have a little bit more than a good time. Deciding to use a Ouija board as a joke, they summon a demon who then brings a friend along to share the fun. When Ann’s girlfriend leaves, Ann is left with two Incubi looking for a good time… and she’s it.

Generally in stories like this, there is a focus on getting to the erotica as quickly as possible, rushing through that, and then ending the work with really no substance to it as a whole. That doesn’t happen in this work as there is a good deal of time spent with Ann and her girlfriend talking about their lives and loves, their past, and the relationship they have with each other. It’s actually a really good bit of character development for both of them and I though that worked well.

However, Ann’s girlfriend leaves moments before the erotica begins when she gets cold feet after the Incubi arrive on the scene. It’s disappointing because for all of the time the author spent in telling the story of Ann and her girlfriend, it felt like she could have just as well not been there, or just left a gift for Ann and the same result would have happened. It’s a bit of a problem because the two of them together are, overall, more interesting than Ann is alone. While the point of the story is for Ann to have her moment with the two Incubi, and I understand that, the author took away the opportunity to tell a larger story, possibly with a different ending, and that would have been a better story overall I think.

The two incubi, Damien and Victor, are, as a whole, not “evil” or stereotypical which I appreciated. In works with a similar theme, the writers usually fall into that meme far too often and it was refreshing to see that not happen. There’s no question that the two Incubi are summoned for the sake of pleasure and they are more than willing to do so. When Ann is the only one left, she is left to their mercy in a lot of ways.

The erotica is, as I noted, a hot flash, but there’s a feeling of that being rushed at times, or perhaps a few paragraphs here and there were removed. The heat comes and goes, as does Ann, and that was slightly disappointing. If Ann’s girlfriend had been there as well, I think that could have added some needed heat, possibly a bit of mind control or at least showing more of the differences between the two Incubi and also what Ann and her girlfriend enjoy as they have quite different tastes and needs.

The writing is good, the story starts out well before it slips into the erotica, and the humour in the beginning I did like quite a lot. It told of the personality that Ann and her girlfriend had and I thought that worked well. Damien and Victor as well are different in their own ways which again made the work better overall. Nonetheless there’s a gap in the story created when Ann’s girlfriend leaves and that’s a shame for all of the building up that happened from the beginning.

I’m giving this work three out of five pitchforks.

Some quirky humour, a neatly told story, and as a whole a quick hot flash with just enough story behind it to give it substance. A few points where the story could have been made to be more than the erotica that drives it forwards, and sadly missed out on.

A cute Succubus speedpaint YouTube

Another Succubus speed painting YouTube today on the Tale… I really like this character a lot, possibly giving me a story idea or two, but we’ll see what happens with that thought…


And if you cannot see the video here on the Tale, please try this link:

And, just in case the video vanishes, here’s an image of the Succubus herself too…

Succubus by Michele Van Frey

I just think she’s lovely, has a certain look that I like, and overall she isn’t “stereotypical”  like some works of Succubi are…

She might be hiding some of her Succubus nature, but there are hints of that as well and sometimes a hint is all that is needed…

A Review of The Incubus Club series by Cora Blanchett

The Incubus Club 1 by Cora Blanchett

The Incubus Club 1 by Cora Blanchett

A review today of the series The Incubus Club by Cora Blanchett, a series that I thought had an interesting premise, good characters, and a hot story. But, unfortunately, the series came to an abrupt end after the second work in the series leaving a really good series unfinished and wanting.

Sometimes the attraction for another leads to doing things that you never expected. To take a chance, to discover that a myth is real. But then what happens when the myth and the reality meet head on? What do you do then?

The work is about:

When her co-worker catches Liv pining over their boss, Liv admits to being in a bit of a dry spell. It was hard for her to find men—and when she did, none of them seemed to measure up. Were her standards too high? Was her infatuation with her boss in the way? Whatever the case, Liv was at a loss for love.

Her co-worker proposes a daring, seemingly-absurd solution: why not summon a sex demon?

Liv is infatuated with her boss, but can’t do anything about it. Given the option to summon an Incubus to help her deal with things, Live does so. The Incubus takes the form of her boss, she has a night of amazing sex and then discovers that not only are Incubi real, but Succubi are as well. And there’s another secret she didn’t expect that changes her world.

As the beginning to a series, this work sets up a really good premise with a group of characters that fit together well, have their own personalities, needs and wants. It isn’t a simple hot flash, there’s a good deal of world building, of setting up the rules, and making things work together well. Liv, the main character, is very strong in her personality and as she tells the story of what happens around her, it seems real, well explained, and no detail is left out.

These are all good things because it sets up a solid story to which the erotica when it comes into the work, plays off of. The erotica isn’t a short hot flash either, there is build up, passions, moments that Liv and the Incubus she summons pass through. There’s a bit of D/s relationship that pops up very slightly, but it doesn’t overwhelm the feel of what happens to Liv and I liked that a lot.

The incubus himself isn’t named in this work, that comes in the second, but he isn’t stereotypically evil or nasty by any means. It’s made clear that both Succubi and Incubi live from the sexual energy of those they are with and in that comes a hotter story because it is the passions that move the story along towards an ending that works really well. We don’t see his true form either, he only appears as a “perfect” version of Liv’s boss, but it’s clear from the little descriptive hints that there is more to him.

The erotica doesn’t overpower the story, really it merges nicely into the narrative. The mix of story and heat in the latter half of the work I thought worked really well. It wasn’t simply a moment of sex and then the scene was over. There was development in the story, in the characters and as well the way things unfolded felt right for the setting and Liv herself.

The only thing that bothered me was that it was a bit short, there were some points at which further story could have been told or the Incubus could have explained things to Liv a bit more. There was a couple of points where I felt like there was a missing chapter between two moments, or at least a few pages, and that tripped me up a bit. But otherwise, this was an amazingly good story to set up a new series.

I’m giving this work four out of five pitchforks.

A really well told story, some lovely heat and a concept that really has a story to tell.

The Incubus Club 2 by Cora Blanchett

The Incubus Club 2 by Cora Blanchett

In the second book, Liv finds out that her boss has secrets too which only serves to complicate things even more.

If there are Incubi, there have to be Succubi as well. What happens when you find out that the one you want has a Succubus… and she looks like you? How do you react? Who do you turn to? What happens when you realize that you can see now what you didn’t before?

And what happens next?

The work is about:

Olivia has just discovered that her boss, and long-time crush, has been summoning a succubus—a succubus that looks just like her. What does this mean? Does he have a crush on her, too? Has he been going behind her back, with this succubus, without Olivia’s knowledge?

When Olivia decides to take a stress day, things get steamy when she summons her own demon for answers.

Liv goes back to her office and finds out that she can see the Incubus that her co-worker had summoned. She also finds out that her boss has a Succubus that looks exactly like her. Not being able to handle things, Liv goes home to her Incubus and tries to cope. But coping takes many different forms.

In this work we find out that Liv’s Incubus is named Caelum, her co-worker’s Incubus is named Jorge as well. But we don’t find out the name of the Succubus that her boss summoned that looks like her. Liv also finds out that she can now see the Incubi and Succubi around her, they can see her as well and then things get more complicated.

The main thing about this book is that the theme is consequences. Liv’s summoning of Caelum has a cost to her, the summoning of a Succubus by her boss has another one. The same is true of her co-worker. In all of this going around and summoning sex demons, the things that each of them want is taken away because of their actions.

Because Liv summoned Caelum, she’s not able to deal with her boss. Because her boss summoned a Succubus, he’s unable to make amends with Liv. It’s clear that they want each other, and badly, but there is something between them that neither can really get past because in each case, they are being interfered with.

There is a lot of self-recrimination that both of the main characters need to deal with, but they really don’t. In Liv’s case she runs off, pouts for a while, then goes back to Caelum. Even when her boss appears and wants to talk to her about it, she pushes him away, has sex with Caelum, gives him a name, and then… the story ends.

It’s a bit disappointing because the start of this work really sets up something unique and interesting but doesn’t try to find a solution to the problems. The path is towards another hot session of sex of Liv, but with the twist of Liv wanting to see Caelum’s real form. That in itself I liked because he wasn’t stereotypically evil in appearance, though there are hints of something else about him however.

Really nothing is said about the Succubus in this work, other than she looks like Liv, but sexier. Otherwise her name isn’t told and it’s only a fleeting glimpse of her. I really wanted to know more about her when she appeared, and I would have been happy with a cut scene between the Succubus and Liv’s boss that explains why he summoned her, gave her name, made her more than just appearing for the shock value.

The erotica is just as hot as in the first work, the story itself is every bit as good, but the story doesn’t really resolve anything and that’s the real problem here as there never was a part three to the series. The work ended on a cliffhanger for all of the characters, everything in a mess, and the future uncertain.

I wish there would have been a part three to tie things up or continue the story, but it didn’t happens and that’s more the shame. The series started out amazingly, seemed to have a lot of promise and then… stopped.

I’ll give this work four of out five pitchforks.

I still hope for a continuation, really the series needs this for all of the promise and perhaps, someday that will happen. I can hope for that at least…

A Review of Siren’s Heat by Lillian Oliver

Siren's Heat by Lillian Oliver

Siren’s Heat by Lillian Oliver

When a character’s background is created for a story, no matter how short the story may be, if there is mention of an event, it should be explored. It isn’t enough to say that someone was “hurt” or something similar. That lessens the impact of the event, leaving it open to interpretation.

It is more so when the character’s life is changed, a fear is created, and then, when the story forces them to confront that fear, they cannot explain it or are not allowed to. Really that is a problem because in telling that story what happens in the here and now makes much more sense than it does otherwise.

The work is about:

Laura left a dark past behind her to become a doctor, but when a handsome stranger is brought to her hospital, she is in danger of being sucked back in. He makes her feel things she never has before, and she soon can’t help but want him in her heat, healing him the way only she can.

Laura hides a tragic event in her past from all around her. She is a siren, one that found herself hurt in unimaginable ways by an incubus. Turning to the world of humans to hide herself, never knowing pleasure, she is confronted by a dying incubus in her hospital and now there’s no where for her to run.

The work is a hot flash with very little background about Laura and even less so about Liam, the incubus of the work. While Liam is somewhat of an enigma, Laura’s story is told to an extent, but really only in passing. What’s troubling about that is Liam doesn’t really seem to care all that much for the most part, driving towards a singular goal. Even when Laura, in a way, explains a small fraction of her fear, that seems to be glossed over for the erotica that follows.

The problem with this is that the fear in Laura is a telling one, it’s clear that what she has encountered is a nightmare to her. But why that is, how it happened, isn’t explained. It is more than a “bad experience” and that is clearly told in her words. Liam does offer some sympathy, but that’s following his use of his powers to overcome her fears and reluctance.

Liam dominates the work, controlling what happens. While in doing so he opens Laura’s eyes to the fact that not all incubi are bad, there’s just something that feels wrong about the entire exchange and how everything unfolds. Laura does by the end of the work, have a different view of herself and Liam, which makes sense and works for the most part. The final lines of the work adding a little bit of needed humour as well.

There are points in the work were the story reads oddly, the dialog seeming wrong somehow. There are some inconsistencies in the story, right from the first page as well. An announcement in the hospital says one time and then the message is repeated with a longer period of time. There are some points where character names do not have capitals. But the single thing that I found the most troubling was hinting at Laura’s past, giving an idea of what she fears, not saying what, and then just sort of brushing that aside without much thought.

Considering the erotica, which is really quite hot, makes a connection between the characters, and offers a glimpse of what their world outside of humanity is like, there’s not all that much story past the opening. It would have been nice to know “why” when most of what comes out of the story is “how”. A better balance of background, story and erotica i think would have done this work a world of good overall

Three out of five pitchforks.

The work needs another editing pass, there are quite a number of errors that should have been corrected. Not exploring Laura’s fears took much away from her character as well. A loss of oneself to another is a difficult thing, but more so when it is the thing you fear the most. No amount of erotica can overcome that fear when it isn’t explained and then overcome.

Succubi Image of the Week 411

It’s not often that I find an image of Succubi where there’s something about the image that just says… family. Two Succubi Sisters together? That could go really in any direction, a lot them them probably well over the top. But what if the image was simply… right.

Cath n Troi by Cathrie-Crash

Cath n Troi by Cathrie-Crash

This work is called Cath n Troi and is by an artist on DeviantArt called Cathrie-Crash. You can find the original page on DeviantArt where I found this work here and this artist’s page can be found on DeviantArt here.

These are the Dremoras Sisters, Cath and Troi, and beyond that I really don’t know all that much about them. I do, however, know that I love this art very much. They look like Sisters, there’s a undertone of connection between the two and I’m not referring to the outfits they are wearing. It’s the look they share, the glance in their eyes, the little smile on their lips. It’s that connection, the feeling that they are a family, are Sisters… It simply looks right and it’s amazing.

Their outfits are not over the top sexy, but as well, they “fit” them. Again, it’s just the look that works here more than anything else. The colours work for each of them individually, but also the contrast between them does as well. I think the sleevettes are cute, and the pattern and colour nicely frame both of them.

Cute tails, horns that really work with their body shapes, and I think their hair styles and how they are posed together is amazing too…

I love seeing art like this because it tells a story. And it’s a story that I love to see.

A crown with horns does not make Succubi appear

Devil Princess HornsOne of the things that bothers me is why costume horns have to be ugly. There are so few that look good, both in form but also in size. Obviously they have to either be on some kind of headband, or have a clip to attach them into one’s hair.

I prefer, as a whole, to have them as a hairband because I can work that into my hair better and the horns don’t look lopsided. But then I came across this set of horns, which are called the Devil Princess Horns.

They do look cheap, and they are. they sell for $7 US. The image here is a bit deceptive as she model is wearing a wig with the horns to cover up a lot of the flaws I think. But it doesn’t cover up all of them and it cannot overcome the cheapness of the horns themselves.

I have better, I have seen better, I have been gifted, by a dear friend, better than this…

And I will be sharing those.

One out of five pitchforks.

It isn’t at all a princess. It’s hardly Devilish as well if you need a wig to make them look better…

The SuccuWiki’s Eighth Anniversary

Today, December 1st, 2015, marks the eighth anniversary of the SuccuWiki. I really just wanted to note that this was happening today more than anything else.

Because of some changes in the MediaWiki software, I have to take an educated guess about how many times the SuccuWiki has been accessed now and I think it is something like 20 million views, more or less.

As well, there are almost 3,700 articles available and I’m rather pleased about that.

Thank you to all that have been part of my making this possible…
