The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale
This novel follows the haunting of a couple in their home. The being that is haunting them is described as a Succubus, and does have the aspects of the classic Succubus about it. And in the same classical manner, the Succubus is only drawn to the husband of the story.
He is taunted by the Succubus, and over time his relationship with his wife suffers. Finally he comes to a resolution that he hopes will leave the Succubus behind in their home as they continue their lives.
The writing is okay, save for a few points in the work where the author seemed to stumble over his thoughts for a time. And in other places the confusing of words happens. This is not a typical Succubus story, the Succubus is never quite seen physically, but it acts emotionally and mentally on the couple.
He describes the work as being his true life experiences. I wonder if that means that it actually happened or is it odd moments strung together into a story? A good read, but it is a shame that this is the only work by this author that I can find.
