A Review of The Succubus Journals by Monique Reyer

The Succubus Journals by Monique Reyer

  Recently a short series called The Succubus Journals was completed and as such I am going to review that series today on the Tale. The thing about this series is that there is a story, it is actually an interesting one, but the problem comes in that the story isn’t told for the sake …

A Review of By The Horns by Alys Lovell

By The Horns by Alys Lovell

While it is true that Succubi are creatures of seduction, eroticism, lust and desire, that is not all that they are. While some of the succubi are mainly concerned with the doing, there are some that also care about being more than they are expected to be. Stories like that, for me, are really quite …

A Review of the Evil Sorceress In Training series by C.V. Walter

Evil Sorceress In Training: In The Tower by C.V. Walter

Amazon’s keyword search has a lot of problems really. It’s not hard to ‘game’ the system, to make a book appear in a keyword search for the most vague reasons possible. In the case of this series, a succubus appears in one book, for one short scene and then never appears again, nor is mentioned, …

A Review of Nice Guy by Mike Leon

Nice Guy by Mike Leon

Succubi are not always the central characters of a work. Sometimes they are passing characters, a shadow in the background, even a thought and not much more. It is somewhat troubling when they are an afterthought, a means for theme in a story to continue, and the core of a character’s life to be brought …

A Review of Succubus Duel by Amanda Knight

Succubus Duel by Amanda Knight

I understand why, sometimes, authors like to put a twist in a story. If that twist explains why things happened in the story, then that’s perfectly reasonable. Where I have a problem is when the twist is told in less than a paragraph, comes out of left field, and is not explained at all. In …
