A Review of On Becoming a Succubus by Lillian C. Sisk

On Becoming a Succubus by Lillian C. Sisk

Stories about succubi or incubi set in historical times face several problems, not the least of which is how women were treated at that time and having to overcome that aspect of the storytelling. It sometimes overcomes the main part of the story and in doing so can leave a lot to be desired. That …

A Review of Fourth World: Erotic Tales of Monsters, Myths and Magic by Lisabet Sarai

Fourth World: Erotic Tales of Monsters, Myths and Magic by Lisabet Sarai

The most common stories about monsters and similar beings resolve themselves to telling a story in which there is more horror than love, more pain than life, and more darkness without having a sense of the light that should be.

A review of the second work in The Naughty Succubus series by Becca Lusk today on the Tale. I reviewed the first work a short time ago and found that the mystery surrounding the characters interested me, but the author needed to edit things a bit more than they had done so. As an aside, …

A Review of Ethereal Like Me by Tressa Messenger

Ethereal Like Me by Tressa Messenger

The creation of a book series can be complicated in many ways. One of these is creating the past of the main character, the world they live in. More than that, trying to insert into their lives who they know, what they mean, adds another layer of complexity to things. At some point the world, …
