Sandra's first night in Paris serves more productive than she thought it would be. While in a Vampire Club, she runs into a beautiful bartender named Milly who's also a fairy. It's at that very moment that she discovers her true origin... Sandra's a Succubus.
However, Sandra quickly learns that Vampires don't get along with Succubi and she's not welcome there. Caught in Sandra's crossfire, Katrina is banished from the one place she's worked years to gain acceptance too.
Katrina shouldn't fret though; there's more in this for her if she helps Sandra. There's a problem though... Sandra's getting hungry and discretion is rule number one for her kind in this town but; Sandra doesn't know how to properly feed. Can Katrina get Sandra in the right company before Sandra's cravings get the best of her?
The following review was originally published on Tera's Blog, A Succubi's Tale on February 15, 2015
Overall the situation that Sandra finds herself in I found to be interesting. There are hints of things about her past that are troubling. They also remind me of a certain Canadian television series with a Succubus in it. Setting that aside, I rather liked the contrast between the vampire society and that of the Succubi and, if only guessed at, Incubi.
It is the contrast between the brutal and the seductive. More interestingly is that the two sides, apparently, do not interact, if at all. I would have liked to know more about that divide, why it was and what it meant. Then comes the question of Sandra, her abilities and what that means for her. The question of Sandra’s mother, why she did what she did, why her father did the things he did and so on There are so many plot threads in this work set out in these two short works, but really none of them are settled or placed on a path.
The writing is very good, the actions, thoughts and dialogue all match the individual characters. But the clearest voice is Katrina’s I think, her reactions to what happens around her and so on. Sandra seems to be quite lost from the first moment she appears, and that takes a little bit away from her. As she gains her bearings in this world, and it is tenuous here, she does settle more and her own voice is much stronger for that.
By the end of these works, there is a cliffhanger that appears, which would be interesting to see as it would be the first time we see Sandra feed, not that she has much of a choice really for everything that has happened to her.
As well, there is a very mysterious fairy that can tell if someone is telling the truth and she reminds me of another being that was a dear friend of a certain magic user and her Succubus…
I’m giving these works three and a half out of five pitchforks.
There is a lot to like about the setting, the world of the Succubi and Katrina and Sandra themselves. I just wish that the lead up would have resolved into a payoff. There is so much promise here and… it just stops before that happens…
