A Review of Infernal Desires by Prudence Sinclaire

Infernal Desires by Prudence Sinclaire

Infernal Desires by Prudence Sinclaire

There are some works I review which, sadly, no longer can be found. It’s more the shame when the story is actually quite interesting, is written well, and tells a story that is different in its own way. This particular work is from several years in the past, but like all works about the Succubi and the Incubi, it too deserves its moment of recognition.

There comes a time when a young succubus has ‘the talk’ with her mother. She learns about what she is, what she can do, and about what it’s like to taste a soul. But even after having the talk, that doesn’t mean that she’s going to be able to control herself, her powers or that of those around her…

The work tells the story of:

Victoria had never been so embarrassed as the night she almost ate her boyfriend’s soul. After a quick talk with her mother, Vicki learns she’s a succubus who’s just come into her powers. As Vicki struggles to control her newfound abilities, will she remain true to her human intentions or will she give in to her demonic lust?

Vicki finds herself having a problem. She has a boyfriend, but almost took his soul. Her mother has explained that she’s a succubus, and Vicki is one as well. The problem comes in that Vicki can’t control her powers and there are a lot of people wanting a piece of her. Life’s hard when you are a succubus after all.

This is really a cute and fun work that has a slightly different take on being a Succubus that I did rather like. The work focuses on Vicki, what she experiences, and all that comes with her succubus powers coming into being. There’s a touch of mind control here and there, some nicely hot scenes of erotica as well. But what’s more interesting is Vicki’s reaction to everything that she experiences and, most of all, the talk she has with her mother.

We never see Vicki’s mother, though we learn she is a nurse, has a very open idea about sexuality. Oh, and she is a succubus as well. There is a little bit of “evil” in one of her comments, but that’s pushed aside by Vicki’s humanity that comes through in spite of what her emerging powers make happen. Really there’s very little said or told about Vicki’s mother and that’s a bit of a shame as I would have liked to know more about her, Vicki’s father and so on. It’s a bit of an open mystery, only teased at, and it would have been nice for that to develop further.

While there is story and plot, to an extent, the majority of the work focuses on Vicki encountering, and then suffering her way through some sexual situations which then eventually climax in her having a threesome with her boyfriend and a roommate. While she does get pushed to the edge, in more than one way, she doesn’t turn ‘evil’ but rather she’s more of a sex dream in a way. I liked that, and hearing her thoughts as things developed, how her new needs as a succubus became more and more pronounced was very hot. I thought the description of seeing a soul was quite unique, and more so what Vicki’s reaction was when she finally had but a taste of one.

The work closes with Vicki wondering what she can do with her powers next in the aftermath of being “charged up” but the work closed on that point, not going any further and leaving the rest to the reader’s imagination. As such, the work is very short and that’s a shame.

There’s several good ideas here, some interesting characters, and Vicki herself being the most interesting of all. The work clearly leads towards another book, but that never came to be. The work was removed from Amazon, the story lost, and it shouldn’t have been. There’s promise here, and it should have unfolded.

Three and a half out of five pitchforks.

A cute and fun little piece of succubus erotica. A little mind control, a little fun, and a story that sadly never continued onwards. It’s a shame because Vicki is really quite likeable, and to see what happens in the after, as she becomes more sure of herself and her powers, would have been very interesting to see.

A Review of World’s Shyest Succubus 1: Awakening by Taylor Knobb

World's Shyest Succubus 1: Awakening by Taylor Knobb

World’s Shyest Succubus 1: Awakening by Taylor Knobb

A review of the first work in a new series called Philos University by Taylor Knobb for which I find myself rather amused, bemused and taken by the main character and her innocence.

The theme of an innocent, or if you will, pure soul being transformed into a succubus isn’t uncommon. What is uncommon is keeping that soul true to themselves in spite of all that happens to them. It’s not an easy thing to do when the obvious route would be to make them sex crazed after all.

The world around you can be draped in shadows. A mystery simply because of how you were brought up into it. When temptation strikes, one can find themselves covered by it. The larger question then becomes how one learns their new world, and what they do with that knowledge.

  • Title: World’s Shyest Succubus 1: Awakening
  • Author: Taylor Knobb
  • Length: 17 Pages
  • ASIN: B01DJLFQ64
  • Publishing Date: March 27, 2016
  • This work at Amazon.com

It tells the story of:

Adina is a quiet, shy, and above all good girl. So one night when she’s heading home from a church service and is caught in what seems to be a blast of magical power that starts to change her, she doesn’t know what to do. The changes start immediately, with a new sort of hunger that threatens to turn her world on its head. She needs something that she’s never needed before, something that makes her turn hungry, lustful eyes upon her roommate Kelly…and something that might help Kelly turn those same desires on Adina!

Adina is, if nothing else, a good innocent girl. She’s shy and really doesn’t know much about the world outside of her cloistered community. Encountering something that she should have known better than to get involved with, Adina discovers her body is changing and her needs are becoming more… physical. Something’s happening and when her roommate comes a little too close, Adina discovers things she’s never experienced before.

The main focus in Adina trying to deal with a very slow transformation into what seems to be a succubus. The majority of the changes in this work are physical, not quite over the top, but certainly starting her on the path to becoming a succubus nonetheless. Mixed into that is a tentative creeping of a turning of her viewpoint from innocence about just about everything to a singular focus upon sex and sexuality, much of which is her own discoveries about the things that “bad girl” must like in her mind.

Adina is, to a point at the beginning, almost too close to a stereotypical good girl and there were points at which I winced at how clueless she was. In the context of her character it made sense, but even so the slightly overwrought moments of discovery made me wonder if she’d ever seen her own body all things considered. When her mental landscape begins to shift, and it is very nice in how subtle that is at first, it brought about quite a lot of character development. Adina doesn’t go from innocent to sex craving mindless being as has happens so often before. There’s still that innocence in her, a good soul that sees she’s doing something “wrong” and needs to make up for that.

It’s this focus in the story that grounds it and makes it more than an excuse for Adina to crawl into bed with her roommate. There are two scenes that focus on erotica, one is some self-pleasuring which was lovely and hot, the other is Adina and her roommate loosing themselves in Adina’s powers which has some succubus mind control mixed in with some heated erotica that was lovely and I liked both quite a lot.

The work is short, there’s a skimming over about how Adina it transformed, which I hope will get better explained, and there is a need for perhaps a bit less of Adina being singularly thinking about sex and her reactions over it, which happens almost every page in the latter part of the work.

The story is well told, I like Adina very much and because I do, there’s a worry about this series that I hope the author can avoid. I really wouldn’t like for Adina to be lose within the succubus when she fully appears. More so, I really don’t want her to turn stereotypical, and if she has hooves I will not be thrilled at all. The story has a purpose, a voice in Adina, that has to remain throughout otherwise this is just a means for writing her into constant sex scenes without meaning. That would be the real shame of all.

There are a few odd word choices for actions that Adina takes here and there which are a bit confusing, but that well may be just a choice the author made. Otherwise Adina is a captivating character, the story has purpose, plot and direction. The erotica is not over the top and when the little first hints of Adina becoming a succubus peek out, there’s a delicious duality in her inner thoughts, what she does, and how that all unfolds and the aftermath that Adina has to deal with.

A cute story about an innocent beginning to figure out that something isn’t quite right, but having no idea as to why. Really a unique take on this particular them which I enjoyed. However it is short, really needs to be fleshed out more and perhaps more time needs to be spent in Adina facing her changes a bit more rationally rather than being just completely out of touch with what is going on.

Four out of five pitchforks.

There’s quite a number of mysteries here to unravel, many of which I think will be interesting. There is however a danger of the work turning Adina into something she isn’t, a caricature of her innocent self. I really don’t want to see her lose who she is for the sake of an ongoing series in which she just goes from sex scene to sex scene and nothing more. I feel like that isn’t likely, but it is a trap that is far too easy to fall into. The next work in the series is titled “Playing Doctor” and that concerns me. I dearly hope I am wrong for the promise I see in Adina herself.

Drawing a cute anime Succubus YouTube

I found, for me, one of the more interesting from the perspective of an artist creating their artwork, YouTubes sometime ago. I like this video mainly because the process of creating is where the soul of art comes from…

And in case the video can’t be seen on the Tale, please try this link:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X2k1xgBHGR0

While the video is a little bit small, here is the completed art in case YouTube makes it vanish as happens from time to time…

Succubus Sketch by Aria Rayes

Succubus Sketch by Aria Rayes

The most important thing really about anime Succubi is that they are cute, have a little bit of sexy innocence, and, of course, that expression that seems to say they have no idea why the boys around them are having nose bleeds.

I do love this character very much, the cuteness is the best part and in being so cute that gives her a lot of personality. Lovely expression, I like the pose, and while her tail is a bit different, it does work for her quite well I think.

I wonder what her name could be…

A Review of Idle Hands by Alana Church

Idle Hands by Alana Church

Idle Hands by Alana Church

A review today of the first work in a new series called The Succubus by Alana Church, a series that I think has quite a lot of promise, story and more. It’s a very difficult thing to start a series, to set up the who, what and where which eventually, as the series progresses, gets to the why.

To do so needs a group of characters who are the focus. They tell the story through who they are, what they desire, and how each of their lives come into contact with one another. Sometimes all that takes is a strong willed woman, her long forgotten desires, and a succubus in need. When that combination works well, all else comes into play.

The work tells the story of:

Althea was an immortal succubus, dedicated to a life of sexual pleasure. She lived her life on her own terms, caring little for others. However, one fateful day she was torn out of her own body by a deranged mortal. Forced to take shelter in the nearest woman, how will she regain her power and her body?

Rachel Wainwright was a successful attorney, but one with a troubled home life. Separated from her husband, fighting with her children, her life was cold and sterile. When her long-forgotten sexuality returns to her, how will it affect her, and those around her?

Althea now shares Rachel’s body and her mind. To return to her own form, she must take power from Rachel’s pleasure. And to do that, she must find work for her Idle Hands.

Althea is having a really bad day. It’s not enough that a mere mortal has harmed her, it’s not just that she had to take up residence in a mortal woman to survive. No, the real problem is that she can’t get out of the mess she’s in without the mortal’s help. It’s going to be a long road, filled with peril, strife, loss and more. Neither of them will be the same, and in the end, perhaps both will learn something about themselves that they didn’t expect before.

The work is interesting in many aspects, not the least of which is how Rachel, the main character of the series, sees her world at the beginning, how that changes over time through Althea’s presence, and what that drives the story towards by the end. There’s a thoughtful, gradual change in Rachel, not just physically, but mentally and emotionally. How Althea does so, the way Rachel’s thoughts move from being a bit cold and focused, to being something more seductive, passionate, and emotional, made a real difference.

Althea’s path through the story is somewhat “behind the scenes” but there’s a good, logical reason for that, it makes complete sense, and there’s nothing strange or off putting about it. There has been thought given to what could Althea do, how could she influence Rachel, and what comes with her doing so. This core plot has a grounding in this first work, it lays out a path through which the series can follow, and in doing so allows for some erotic moments that work quite well as Rachel succumbs to Althea’s needs.

The erotic undertones don’t overcome the story, which I liked very much. There is a bit of self-pleasure, which was delicious, there’s a seduction scene that was very hot, very well written and I enjoyed. While there are but a few erotic moments to focus on, Althea’s influence on Rachel, those little whispers of ideas, thoughts and suggestions that pop in and out of the story are hot and teasing in what they promise. That is quite a talent to have as a writer and it is done here exceptionally well. The double entendres are amusing, the moments of scattered sexual thoughts made me smile. They are little punctuations in the story that make it more alive, more passionate, and more seductive.

The writing is lovely, there’s nothing that takes the story away, leaves it without direction or purpose. The erotica mixes well, not being silly or over the top. Each character, from Althea and Rachel through Rachel’s family, have their own personalities, thoughts, needs and goals. There’s a story for each of them and I feel that seeing how Althea’s presence touches each will make things more complicated, but also for a more fully realized story overall.

As the work progressed, there were quite a few moments when I had questions, thoughts and pondered over things that one character or another did. Rachel’s office scene with another character made me wonder about something and what that might mean going forwards. Rachel’s son and daughter have quite a few issues to work though, many with their parents, and I look forward to seeing what happens there. Most of all, the singular question of what Althea’s overall plan is, what happens to Rachel along the way is the largest question of all.

I would have liked to have seen a bit more told about Althea herself, though really that couldn’t happen, all things considered, because of her situation. There’s just something about her that I can’t quite put my finger on. She’s not stereotypical, I’m hoping that she remains so, and I think the author has a goal for her that is every bit as important as what happens to Rachel. The other thing that I would have liked to see more of would be a little more time spent before Rachel seduced another character. I felt like there is something missing just before that point that would explain what happened.

I highly recommend this work for the characters, the depth of the plot, the time taken to tell each of the main characters’ stories. This opening work doesn’t focus mainly on the erotica, the erotica is used to push the story forwards intelligently, which I really quite enjoyed. I have high hopes and expectations overall and I believe this series will be one of my continuing favourites to follow throughout.

Four and a half out of five pitchforks.

Althea has a “home”, it’s in need of a bit of tender loving care that only a succubus can give. I think that’s the most captivating part here and I look forward to what comes next…

A Review of Turned in to a Girl! by B.J. Sackrider

Turned in to a Girl! by B.J. Sackrider

Turned in to a Girl! by B.J. Sackrider

I believe that every book should be given a chance. Sometimes I can be pleasantly surprised, sometimes I wind up shaking my head and, rarely, I read something and wonder if there is anyway to get back the time I wasted in reading.

Today is, of course, April Fool’s and I have the feeling that this work is very apt. There should be something in a book called a story. There should be something in a work called character. Most of all, if there is supposed to be a Succubus in the work, there had best be one.

Otherwise… Why list it as having one in the first place?

  • Title:Turned in to a Girl!
  • Author: B.J. Sackrider
  • Length: 36 Pages
  • ASIN: B00WPVSIO2
  • Publishing Date: April 25, 2015
  • This work at Amazon.com

It is the story of:

When Max finally decides to explore the woods behind his new house, he meets a mysterious woman with magical powers… Gender Swapping Powers. But the woman has a darker side…

What will Max do when he starts to grow breasts and the bulge in his pants disappears? Will his new horny body be able to resist the woman’s evil temptations? Or will he give in to her devilish ways…

I really can’t give a reasonable summary of this story because, as a whole, the story is scattered, wildly uneven, and even when it comes to the erotica, there’s nothing there that creates any heat at all.

The story goes off in all sorts of directions, many of which make no sense at all. There’s nothing in the characters to like nothing in the story to hold onto, and most of all… if there is a Succubus in this work, and there is supposed to be, she’s hardly a succubus by any means.

The only thing I will say with regards to the “succubus” in this work is that… well… There is the barest hint that she is once. The problem is that with how scattered the story is, how hard it is to read, it’s difficult to get anything out of the work save for a great deal of confusion.

It’s been a while, but…

Zero pitchforks out of five.

If the work has a Succubus, she’s hard to find. If the work has a story, that’s even harder. Poor writing does that and there isn’t anything of note that can help.

Succubi Image of the Week 428

Two images this week of Morrigan Aensland as the Succubi of the Week… One is a bit more… exposed to say the least. But the thing about these images is that, in a lot of ways, they are about the most striking and powerful images of Morrigan that I have seen in some time…

It is, after all, important to give Morrigan her due…

Both of these amazing, powerful works of Morrigan art are by an artist on DeviantArt called Yuureikun. The first can be found here and the slightly revealing second one can be found here. The artist’s DeviantArt page can be found here with, I’ll add, the most incredible talent for bringing characters to life…

The only way I can describe this art is that it simply… looks right. Really there’s no other way to explain things, at least in my eyes. There’s the right look of sexy in her eyes, the right expression of her character, her form and body shape “fit”.

The expression of Morrigan’s power is strongly in this art, but not overwhelming as a whole. She isn’t over endowed too much to overemphasis her cleavage. The sheen of her bodystocking brings out her beauty and the pose is captivating, but at the same time there’s a hint of action in that too.

By far one of my favourite Morrigan artworks of all time.

It’s not a simple thing to make Morrigan statuesque, but this artist has done that in a way that is beautiful and true to who Morrigan is…

A Minion perhaps, a Succubus costume not

Sexy Satanic Minion CostumeSometimes there are costumes that do, thankfully, not try to say that they are trying to be Succubi. That’s actually a good thing as my own expectations are lowered, sometimes to a level that even amazes me. Still, even if they manage to have something that might be not too tacky in them, they still manage to find a way to reach new levels of tackiness nonetheless…

This is called the Sexy Satanic Minion Costume and it comes with a red sequin halter top, metallic red booty shorts, red sequin chaps with attached belt buckle, a red sequin devil horn hood and the pitchfork that I hate to no end. Shoes are not included of course.

It sells for as much as $150 US on the sites I have found this on, but it has appeared on special for as little as $95 US.

My first problem is what this costs obviously as some of the costumes that I have reviewed in the past that are as much as this one have gotten much higher ratings that this one will.

While I like the overall shiny, I can’t say that I like the chaps, or the hood. Neither of them do anything for me, I think they are both kind of trashy and, as such, being that they are the majority of the look, that just disappoints me. And I am not even going to start ranting over the pitchfork, which I think needs to be sent to the deepest levels of hell to burn in eternity… But I digress.

However, setting aside that pitchfork, and looking at this as not being a Succubus costume, but more of a “Succubus-wannabe” sort of thing, I would take the hood and the top, find a skirt to match, some thigh-high boots, and then, really, I think there’s something there to play with.

But otherwise, as this is, I can’t say that there’s much there.

Two out of five pitchforks.

Needs some imagination to make this work and it’s a shame that the designer didn’t do that in the first place more than they did…
