I am Princess Naamah, a sex demon who is the only one that can change into either female or male form, the eldest child of Lilith and Lucifer. After thousands of years of seducing mortal men and women, I’ve fallen in love with a human soul, one whom I’ve encountered thru the centuries over and over. To be together, I must become human and my human lover has found a way, but to make the transformation complete, I must have a soul. Not just any soul, but the soul of my mother, Lilith, the first human female. To be with the one I love, I will risk everything, even certain death…
The following review was originally published by Tera in 2010.
This novel is about the first of the Succubi, Naamah. She meets a human named Eli and finds herself falling into love with him. The novel follows her growing relationship with Eli, the problems that creates for her, and for him as well. Eli is reincarnated over and over, Naamah always finding him given time. Eventually she is given a chance to be human by Eli, but in doing so she faces both Heaven and Hell in a battle she never expected to be involved in.
While the author's writing is good, the characters well defined and the events play out as they must, I found that at times the story seemed rushed. It was as if the author wanted to get from event to event as quickly as possible. Any encounter between Naamah and Eli, with the exception of the first one, is too short. It would have been nice to see more about their relationship developing, more of the lives that Eli experienced, and the trials that Naamah faced.
Perhaps the author's next novel will have more of this in it...
Three out of five pitchforks.
There is promise and I'd like to see more of it.
