Marie offers to sneak Arsa, the hapless seduction demon, out for her first night on the town and Arsa couldn’t be happier. This is her chance to impress Marie, maybe even seal the deal!
Of course, not all crushes are reciprocated. But no need to worry, Arsa--sometimes when god closes a door he opens a window!
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on June 14, 2015
Arsa finally manages to pass her test, but the prize she hoped for wasn’t there. Still, Marie takes things into her own hands and in doing so Arsa discovers that the human world is a confusing place. Even more so, some of the people that he knows from ‘work’ turn out to be something entirely different in the night outside of the office.
This work in the series is, as a whole, focused on story, on Arsa, on Marie and her friends and what all of their truths are. This adds a lot to the series, and to be honest, Grace could be left out of the series from this point onwards considering all of the questions that were created in this part of the series. One thing that I found interesting was when Arsa noted that her kind isn’t quite like the succubi in her reality, which is completely true. Arsa seems to care more about those around her, is more passionate, more interested in them first and, as such, that makes her a better character to focus the series upon.
Seeing Arsa deal with humanity, with the world, was at times both quite funny and sad as well. There is a lot of innocence in her, which I hope continues throughout. Reading her thoughts as she tried to make sense of things put a different perspective on how she reacted to others, how she saw herself, and even when her need was overwhelming, it made a real difference to the story.
There is a question about Arsa however that does put some other moments earlier in the series into question. A comment about her past, who she is, was quite unexpected and I think there is another part of her story, that of Grace, and of the situation that Arsa is in, to be told. In doing so, it puts events into a new light, might explain a lot of what happened, or didn’t, to Arsa, if not the why. Untangling that will be interesting to see unfold.
There is a short bit hot flash in the beginning, really a ‘stroke’ story, but in the latter third of the work, the story is focused around a wonderfully hot lesson that Arsa is taught. The latter story is just amazing and in being so reminded me of how the author can just make things ‘click’ at times.
Well written, though I caught two minor word errors in the work, but they didn’t take any of the heat or the story away. A group of characters, minor perhaps, but they allowed for Arsa to grow as she needed to and explore herself and those around her. All good things and really a positive addition to the series.
I’ll give this work four out of five pitchforks.
I think this, the third work, is my favourite of the series so far and gives me a lot of hope for what is to come.
A huge question hinted at, which I really do look forward to seeing explained. Arsa’s relationships seem to be getting more complicated and in that I think will be the story of the next work in the series when it appears.
It’s good to see the series finding its footing and turning into what I hoped it could be…
