The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on June 14, 2015
Arsa has quite a few problems, most of them revolving around Grace, the one that summoned her and now holds her. Failing test after test, Arsa finds herself in Grace’s office where she is made to answer some questions, both comfortable and uncomfortable, for them both.
I found this work to be far better than the first in the series, mainly for the focus on who Arsa is, what she is going through, and the people around her. There was a good deal of world building, of explaining how things work and for me that really made the difference.
There are two hot flashes in the work, one quite short, but really promising in that within the moments came a lot which filled in the blanks about Arsa herself. The second, quite a bit longer, was focused on Arsa and Grace and it revealed things about both characters that wasn’t really clear in the first work.
This, more than anything, reflects how well this author can create characters with story, emotion, drive and, in many ways, mysteries around them to see unfold. Over the course of this work, some real progress was made on Arsa’s character development, what her powers are, how they are being controlled. In Grace’s case, there are still a lot of questions about her, but she becomes a much more likeable, strong, and central character to the story. The connection between the two, what the truth is they share, and where things go from this point forwards is what I expected in the first part of the series. Seeing it here brought me a good deal of pleasure and that matters.
I thought the writing was better, the tone clearer, the characters better developed. In every way this was well written, had some lovely BDSM heat in it and it wasn’t something that I felt played out in a foolish or silly way.
Four of out five pitchforks.
Sometimes the thing that makes the difference is having characters connect. Here they did finally and it was wonderful to see.
