A Review of Lillian Possessed: The Embrace and The Exorcism by A.C. Lords

Lillian Possessed: The Exorcism by A.C. Lords

Recently I reviewed the first work in the Lillian Possessed series by A.C. Lords. You can find that review here on the Tale. At the time of that review I wondered where the story would go, if it would manage to not turn stereotypical, and if it would end well. The series seems to have …

A Review of The Devil’s Sin by Carlton Lamberth

The Devil's Sin by Carlton Lamberth

I dislike stereotypical characters, particularly when it comes to succubi. I don’t quite understand why it is that, as a whole, so many authors see the word succubus and immediately write a character that is over the top in her sexuality, but as well in her “evil”. Even if the character must be evil, nasty …

A Review of In Judgment of Della by Glen and Vivian Gilbert

In Judgment of Della by Glen and Vivian Gilbert

There are some stories in which you must, always, be paying attention in order to try and define what is happening in the story, the characters and the world around them.

A Review of Urge of the Demoness by Alana Sanford

Urge of the Demoness by Alana Sanford

Succubi can be many things. They can be evil, indifferent, or mischievous among other things. To have them simply “do” without having a reason can be a problem. It isn’t enough to have a succubus character just so something for the sake of doing so. There needs to be a reason, some kind of meaning. …

A Review of The Haunted Cottage by Robin Macavity

The Haunted Cottage by Robin Macavity

There are some works which, just in their language, how things are presented, and the characters themselves, which can bring about some confusion. Perhaps not so much in the story itself, but trying to place the time when it is set. Expecting a story set in the past, because of the characters themselves, and then …
