Welcome to the hottest erotic encounter of your life. Too bad you won't live long enough to enjoy it.
As a succubus, my lust can only be satisfied with two things: blood and sex. However, few men are dark enough for my tastes. I don't like easy kills. I like a challenge. I like to hunt.
Tonight, I'm lucky. I've found a predator as warped as I am...who also just happens to also be carrying information that could tip the scales in a brewing celestial war.
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on February 14, 2016
The review I wrote several years ago about this work remains the same as a whole. The story is set in a world caught in the middle of the war between Heaven and Hell. The main character of this story, Dena Bat Mahlat, is a succubus. She has a demonic form and a more human one and is, in a lot of ways, stereotypically violent, arrogant, evil, and all of the other things that succubi, at least the classical ones, are seen to be. She kills those that she is with, in the most violent manner possible, and attached to that is a need to control men around her and debase them… All of which makes her as a character someone that I honestly don’t like, don’t care for, and wouldn’t be sorry never to see again.
Setting aside my dislike of her, the story is written well save for a few points where I wondered what the point was to bring victim after victim for Dena. There is, at the last page, some sort of explanation for what has happened, but it doesn’t really pay off all of the rest of the work in how short it is. The story seems not to be well fleshed out and is pushed into the background against all of the violence that Dena creates. There is a story there that isn’t touched on and I would have liked to be able to see the connections that have to be there, but aren’t explained.
Two pitchforks out of five.
There is a succubus, but a succubus should be more than a monster and violent.
