Benzi and her succubus Mistress, Atalya, have settled in Seattle, hoping to turn their luxurious apartment building into an upscale brothel and a recruiting ground for potential demons. But as they discover their first new allies, Atalya's unique condition suddenly locks her into an intense cycle of mindless pleasure. With her Mistress sidelined, Benzi is forced to push forward on their mission in completely uncharted waters. Inexperienced and still struggling with her dark past life, Benzi finds herself in places she never wanted to be...or never could have imagined.
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on February 7, 2016
Benzi has to deal with a series of problems on her own when her Mistress is unavailable. It’s not the easiest of things to do, but there are rewards, things to learn, and, sometimes, the rewards are not only the ones physically, but the ones that matter most within oneself.
If the first work in the series didn’t quite be all that it could be, the second most certainly is. While Atalya is only fleetingly in this work, she has an impact, but as well, she gives Benzi something very special. Her trust. It is a hard time for Benzi, many difficult things happen to her, but the thing is that, in being that she must think, act, and more on her own, the strength of her character comes through clearly and it is amazing.
There is a little side comment about a certain television series with a succubus hero, at one point, which makes Benzi’s name even more amusing that it was before. But the thing is, she is very much like her better known namesake in a lot of ways. There’s more to her, and that comes out in this story and I liked that a lot.
There is also the appearance of another succubus named Iris in this work, and her story, that of her soulmate and what happens to them both registered very strongly for me. It tells that there’s more to think about in this series than the erotica, the more sexual moments, even the points at which there is a lot of dominance and submission going on. There’s a theme of love and affection, for one, but also there is a theme of redemption for all and I really liked the tone of that. Not all see that, or have it, but it is there, in all its forms and I adored that. There is a touch of erotica, but it is far less than the first work and I think that made the work better overall. There is humour, some of which made me laugh out loud, there is compassion, love and lust, but it doesn’t overpower the story.
Lots of cute and fun moments, the method that comes about to get two angels and a succubus out on the town for a bit was simply inspired and I give the author full points for the idea, but you’ll have to read this work to find out what that is.
The writing is better, there is less talking to the reader and that made the story flow better and kept me within the work more fully. The dialog is better, the story is tighten and the work has a point and a goal which it accomplishes quite well.
I’ll give this work four and a half out of five pitchforks.
I really liked the second work more because it was a story, a good story and it held me throughout. Overall the series showed a lot of promise and I was hoping for there to be more. But that hasn’t happened as of this review and that’s a shame.
I like succubi that aren’t the usual and if they happen to be intelligent enough to see better things, including love and affection, then I am all for that.
