Armed with new knowledge about the sexy demons who pursue her, Adeline Pond decides to stop running and confront them with an offer of her own. But will her carefully laid plans get her into more trouble than she bargained for, or will Adie finally get back on her feet and back to planning her bakery?
Join Adie on her (mis)adventures towards achieving a quasi-normal life among humans.
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on August 8, 2017
The art of the deal might not be Adie’s strong point, but being persuasive is. Still, the demons are being a pain, even if sometimes Adie might just want to have them all for dessert. But there’s baking to be done and boundaries to be laid down. The question however is, who’s going to break them and who’s going to be paying?
The work follows on immediately after the events of the prior work and things aren’t going any better for Adie. But she’s headstrong, her tail’s ticked off and most of all, those three demons aren’t going to get the better of her. I really liked seeing how she made her deal, how the others reacted and then, most of all, how Adie made herself part of their world, showing them that she’s not going to be a push over, or forgotten for that matter.
It’s the little victories that I loved most of all, the moments when flashes of Adie’s personality overcome the stifling personalities of the demons and where they live. I think it’s going to be so delightful when Adie puts her stamp on things and the demons discover just how much of a mistake they made in getting involved with Adie. They might have been better off giving her what she wanted in the first place, all things considered, and when push comes to shove in this work, the victory she gains in standing up to them was just perfect.
Lovingly written as all of the prior works, it’s still clear the author is having all kinds of fun with Adie and what’s happening to her. Again there’s little erotica in this part of the series, but there really need not be as it’s about gaining more insight on the main characters, all four of them.
A delicious read, Adie just continues to make me smile. I still have the hope that the next part of the series has the three demons be less confrontational and more revealing in what they want from Adie and why. That mystery remains and it needs to be part of the story, not lurking on the edges.
Four out of five pitchforks.
The series holds onto its strengths, the plot is developing and Adie herself seems to be coming more and more into focus. There’s problems ahead, without question, and much of that comes from the three pains in the tail she’s having to deal with. I’m hoping that friction will turn soon as its been going on almost constantly. Getting past what seems to be mistrust to the reasons why Adie’s so important matters. But more so, it matters that she gets to do some baking again.
