Jacie’s life has become a whirlwind of passionate encounters in the most thrilling of places, but she hasn’t quite recovered fully since her waking. When an illicit encounter leaves her thrilled yet unfulfilled, she returns to her sanctuary, only to find that not all is as it should be.
When the young man of the house, her most trusted companion, decides that he’ll work out his anger on the newly promiscuous succubus, Jacie is introduced to the darker side of her new life – where even those she’s loved forever will take all that she offers to others – whether she likes it or not!
... and now Jacie knows.
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on November 17, 2015
Jacie has been going around town since she awoke, trying to scratch an itch that she can’t manage to fulfill. She has a night of sex, a rough moment in an alleyway, and then she comes home to what her stepbrother has become in the aftermath of her awakening.
In the second work, it still isn’t clear that Jacie is a succubus. She has no idea really why she is running around and having sex with every man she comes into contact with. Really the reason for why she does isn’t clear, isn’t explored, and save for the little mention in the book blurb, there isn’t any sign of Jacie actually being a succubus.
There are two erotic scenes which are interspersed with Jacie’s thoughts about what is happening to her, what she’s feeling as she is being used, and for the most part, abused. For me the scenes didn’t have much heat in the them mainly because I didn’t find that I cared all that much about Jacie, her stepbrother, or the man that Jacie has sex with at the beginning of the story. The scenes were, as a whole, not what I like to read and really the themes explored between Jacie and her stepbrother held nothing for me.
Beyond this, there is a story, which is nibbled at, but doesn’t really go anywhere. There’s a hint that the stranger that Jacie meets before she goes home is important to the story, but that indication is fleeting at best. The larger story is what happened to Jacie’s stepbrother and as the core of this story, it’s really a tragic thing. From the first work to this one there’s been a huge change in his personality and more. It is a sharp contrast between who he is now, and who he was. It’s explored, in a round about way, but really might have been delved into further. Things come to a head, things happen, and then his story peters out suddenly.
In spite of this, some important things are said which tend to drive the story forwards, to try to place the underpinning of Jacie being a Succubus, but, again, you have to be looking for them in order to see them. Otherwise the story really seems to be about a woman that needs sex, badly, and gets that anyway she can.
The writing itself is good, the characters have personality, but really didn’t develop all that much in this work. The balance was towards Jacie’s sexual encounters over story as a whole and that’s a shame as there needs to be more story. With any luck in the next work Jacie will be revealed, or told, or sees, what she is. It also would be nice to know more about her past, especially her mother, which I think needs to be told as well. I realize that sex sells, but story does more and there is a story here that’s trying to get out from under the erotica and I hope is does.
Two and a half out of five pitchforks.
This work was more sex than story, but there is a story lurking underneath. Like the first work, that’s the problem. Tell the story, explain why things are happening as they are, and then what comes next will make more sense. At this point it’s not quite managing that.
