Rory Anderson loves to take advantage of women. When he crushes the heart of his newest conquest, a sweet sorority virgin named Delia Sanderson, he feels like the big man on campus - until he wakes up as a girl! Worse yet, he's in the arms of an incubus summoned by the witches he's spurned. Can he atone for his sins without submitting to the infernal beast? Or will he give in to his new desires?
The following review was originally published on Tera's Blog, A Succubi's Tale on May 20, 2014
Rory is, to be quite blunt, about the worst example of a human being that one could possibly encounter. As a whole, from the first instant he appears, it is quite clear that there is not one redeeming quality about him. Self-absorbed, cruel, and most of all, has an opinion about women that really needs an attitude adjustment. Not that his friends aren’t all that much better really. After causing Delia, his latest victim, to try to kill herself, and then care at all about it, things happen. Delia’s friends are witches, they summon an Incubus, and Rory finds himself transformed and seeing what he has done to others from their side.
The Incubus, Ashonoch is described as a monster, which he is in many ways. Overall he is somewhat stereotypical in form and his personality is very dominant in character. There isn’t really a lot of character development with the Incubus as his purpose is, after all, to teach Rory a lesson. His actions, mental, physical, and sexual towards Rory are as brutal if not more so, than what Rory did to others.
Ashonoch is the catalyst for Rory’s punishment and it is an odd mix of dreams and realities that meld together which brings about Rory’s gender transformation. After this comes the punishment which is every bit as painful emotionally, physically and otherwise.
There is a certain amount of justice that happens through this, and the aftermath is telling as well. But in all of this, more than anything, it is remarkable how long it takes for Rory to understand, finally, just what he did and what the women around him face everyday. It isn’t a happy story, not by any means, but really it isn’t meant to be. It is a story about karma coming to bite someone in the rear at last.
It is a violent work, there really isn’t any other way to explain this. Still, it is meant to be considering who Rory is, what he did, and more. Well written, a touch of mind control mixed with the gender change worked well and it is a good beginning to the series. But how dislikable Rory is bothered me a lot as I read.
I’ll give this work three out of five pitchforks.
