Amy's not sure what's happening to her. She hungers for sex constantly, and the first guy she sleeps with ends up dead! She eventually learns what's going on: she's a succubus, and needs to "feed" by having sex! Every time she feeds, though, she gets stronger, hotter, and hungrier. She gets a job working as a nurse at a hospital, and starts sleeping with the coma patients to feed her desires. This first book follows her discovery of her powers, what they mean, and a couple of sexy encounters with buff guys (some of whom don't quite know what's going on...).
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on April 5, 2016
Amy tells the story of her life from her first awakening as a succubus, through her high school life and then into learning to be a nurse. Along the way she learns what she is capable of, how much it scares her, and what happens when she loses control. Something unexpected happens and then her life gets more complicated, and for a succubus, that’s never a good thing.
One of the things that gave me pause was how the story was told from Amy’s perspective. She refers to herself often as a succubus, then explains, almost casually, that she read about it on the internet, but that doesn’t explain how she learned her powers. Learning by mistake would be a real problem and that doesn’t seem to be what happens, but it isn’t explained.
As Amy’s story is told from her perspective, that makes for both some very hot and very odd moments overall. Her perspective when she is feeding, what she sees in the minds of the others, how she shapes their thoughts and desires, altering their reality is really very well done. It was a nice touch that her powers, as they grow, make her wings appear and shift her eyes to black.
There isn’t really a complete succubus transformation, though the more Amy feeds, the more her overall looks change and when she doesn’t, she returns to her normal looks. That then brings in an interesting subplot through her high school years, but also in how her “other self” as she refers to it, pushes Amy to take more and more. However, there is such a thing as her conscience saying no, save for a very much Lost Girl-ish encounter at the beginning of the work, and otherwise a few “bad” men being taken in a rather ugly way at one point.
Still, that does show Amy still has some humanity in her. At least until she starts her nursing career and then discovers a new way to feed. This is the part of the work that I thought was really very unique and something I had never really considered. Amy feeds on coma patients to survive. That becomes a doubled-edged sword eventually, but in spite that, the author’s solution was perfect in many ways.
Not the least of which is that Amy’s powers allow her to slip into the dreams of the patients, which then leads to some very hot succubus mind control and reality shifting within the dreams themselves. That is written very well and held my attention quite well.
The overall plot is a bit scattered, not really finding a footing until the last third of the work which then drives Amy to an encounter which then leads into the second work in the series. There’s no focus to things overall, Amy going from feed to feed, taking from one after another, sometimes having a very uncaring attitude, sometimes not. She’s a scattered character, without focus for much of the story.
While she talks about learning about her powers, there’s really nothing told of her doing so. Over each feeding, she is better and better at it, but seems to be on her own trying to find her way. The second work in the series seems to suggest this isn’t true however, so that is confusing.
Amy’s character is written strongly, but she seems to be missing some bits and pieces of her personality that really didn’t come out in the story. The time spent in telling about her past, what she has been through, her mistakes and so on, is well done and kept me in the story throughout. Even when things turned confusing, even a bit odd, that wasn’t enough to really pull me out of the story.
It is short however, and considering all of the moments in Amy’s life that were skimmed over, I found myself wishing the author had split this work into three parts and written at least as much as this one for each of them. There needs to be more world building here than there is, considering this is a series. There’s a lot going on here, there’s a lot of promise, but rushing through the details means that things are missed and they are here which speaks towards the next work in the series where the author needed them badly.
Three and a half out of five pitchforks.
Well written, the succubus erotica was very hot, the dreamscapes and mind control worked very well. There are some missing points along the way, some aspects of Amy’s learning about her powers, how they work that weren’t explored and if felt like something was left out of the story to be revealed later. A very good opening to the series, it offered a lot to think about along with the erotica and I liked that. I just wish there was more to read than there is.
