Dad always told me that I had ‘hunter’s blood’, that I was special.
Knowing that, however, didn't exactly stop teenage Rainelle Erickson from courting the dark side, whether for information about her missing mom or striking a forbidden friendship with her charming demonic high school teacher.
Innocent and sensual, read all about young Rae’s heartbreaking discovery and steamy sexual awakening… before she met her Lord Andrei.
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on September 9, 2016
The story of Rae’s life when she was just trying to get her legs underneath her and try to understand why things were and more. The past is haunting, the present more so when it is a memory you can’t recall.
The work is an interesting lead into the first work of the series and it sets up who Rae is, what her past consists of, and what that might mean to her future. There’s a feeling of tragedy, loss, and confusing in Rae and being so there’s a real connection with her character. It’s less about Rae being entangled with an incubus and more about Rae just trying to learn, understand, and somehow find herself.
It is a short work and there are some details glossed over, but in spite of being so the story is well told, the characters are strong in their presence and I thought overall it worked really well. Still, I wish it was longer, at least twice what it is. I would have liked more about Rae, about her mother, if only from Rae’s perspective, and most of all, a bit more about the incubus she finds herself with.
Bren, the incubus of the work, is almost instantly likeable. He’s not stereotypical, he cares about others, about the things he has done, and he has a conscious. That might not be true of other incubi, or succubi for that matter, but in his case I liked this. However, why he acts the way he does, what the guilt is, why he suffers so much isn’t explained and I wish it had been. Moreover, Bren is as much a presence as Rae and while some of that is explained, I really wanted to know more about their relationship than the smattering that was given.
A promising work, interesting characters and a story arc that is revealing and well told. It’s just too short.
Three and a half out of five pitchforks.
So much promise from this work and I expected that the first work in the series would live up to that. However it takes but one thing to completely take that away. Being far too careless. But that’s for my next review.
