The first time I killed a man was not entirely intentional. I hadn’t meant to do it - it just sort of happened. But when my college friend Samantha confided in me about her snake of a teacher, Professor Donovan and his lecherous ultimatum, I knew I had to help.
Help myself anyways. After all, there’s nothing tastier or more invigorating then taming a bad man like the sexy professor was, and I was hungry for a challenge. Little did I know, I was about to get in over my head.
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on February 16, 2016
Tessa has been at university for some time and living with a innocent that knows nothing of what Tessa is. Finding out that someone did something to her friend, Tessa decides to take her own kind of revenge. In the aftermath Tessa will never be the same and the door will open to a world she never knew existed.
The work really doesn’t focus all that much on the ensnarement Tessa performs overall. It’s more about this part of her life, who she lives with, and what she has been doing to make ends meet. Discovering that she can wrap men around her finger turns her that little bit further into a stereotypical femme fatale, but with a succubus twist to her.
It is in this work’s telling of the past that her cold attitude really comes through and the change from who she was to who she is comes out. One interesting point about Tessa’s powers is that when she feeds on others, she gains their abilities. Not their memories it seems, but she has their talents, for example in painting, and it adds a little difference that was interesting.
The time spent with her roommate, at least outside of Tessa’s thoughts is cute and works, but the background commentary reinforces that Tessa isn’t who she was anymore. This comes out fully when the plot turns to her seeking revenge for her roommate and how that unfolds.
The erotica is lukewarm, really a rush begins to the end of the work as it happens, and there’s little heat. There is a point to the erotica, and it sets up a mystery, but soon after the work comes to a close, ending on a cliffhanger, which is the problem.
There is a tease of the next work in the series, but it was never released and further, soon after these works were published they were removed. As such, the work doesn’t answer any questions, leaves only the thought of what might be and nothing more.
Two and a half out of five pitchforks.
I think the third work might have explained a lot of the hints that cropped up in the two works that were released. But as that work didn’t appear, it leaves a pair of books with nothing really settled and not a question answered.
Tessa needed to be more attractive in her mind, even if her physical form was. Being that she had a black heart within herself, that leaves very little to be attracted to. Making her more interesting, telling more story over the rush to the erotica would have been nice.
But as the series seems abandoned, we’ll never know.
