The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on December 15, 2015
Elizabeth believes that her encounter with Abel was all a dream. He couldn’t be real, there was no proof and so she sets out to dream about him again. This night however, things do not go quite as she expected, and in the end Elizabeth has to fight for her life, her sense of self, and to find out just what reality really is for her.
The second work in the series is something of a mix between an action-adventure, a lesbian love scene, if forced to be so, and, again, Abel being dominant over Elizabeth. As in the first work, there is a lot of build up and world building that I did like before the story dropped into one sex scene that really wasn’t all that much so and another that also didn’t have the heat that was in the first work.
There was a disconnect I felt in the story, that things were rushed quite a lot in this work and I think that hurt things overall. There could have been one single fight scene, there were several, and that might have been too much. There’s clearly some mind control being used by Abel in this work, but it comes across as rather heavy-handed and I didn’t find that to be interesting or reflective on Abel’s character, at least what has been told about him to this point in the story.
At the end of the work, Elizabeth discovers something left behind by Abel to convince her that he is real, and all she experienced was real too. But there’s one thing not mentioned which should have made things clear. Elizabeth injures herself in several ways in the fights and she should have felt some of the effects in some way. At least in that happening there would be more impact than the thing she finds. It’s a bit odd and that bothered me at the end of this work.
Setting that aside, the action-adventure part of the work is well done and I liked that part of it, but the erotica just didn’t connect with me, there was something missing and because of that I just found myself turning the pages to get to the end of the work and see what happened there. At that point Abel reveals to Elizabeth that the next time she summons him, it will be the last, but gives her an option to think about. Thinking it a dream at first she doesn’t take that seriously. Finding that all was real leaves her a lot to think about.
I’ll give this work two and a half out of five pitchforks.
While there was a good deal of explanation, of understanding, the erotica just fell apart and that hurt the work. It felt like there was a shift in the characters, especially Abel and I’m not sure that needed to happen here.
