Caitlin never expected to find out that demons were real, let alone that she’s actually one of them. Learning that she is a succubus would have been the biggest shock of her life, if not for the suit-clad men who just forced her into their car at gunpoint.
Who are these people? How are they connected to the guy who just threatened her best friend?
And why is gorgeous, sexy Amar waiting at their destination?
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on December 18, 2015
Caitlin is drawn deeper into a world she never knew and in being so, that world sees her truths as being lies. There are threats waiting, but as well there is some hope, if only the ones that might be offering that hope manage to overcome themselves and accept, even if only in the smallest of ways, that there is such a thing as a Succubus that isn’t what they expect her to be.
Following on immediately after the cliffhanger in the previous work, Caitlin’s life becomes more and more complicated as she starts to learn about things that she never knew and never expected. It is a bit rote in the telling as, in the first work, there are so many characters that she encounters that expect her to understand everything and when she doesn’t they cannot see that. There is one single character that seems to, but as a whole that isn’t exactly something that seems to be real.
That said, even with Caitlin’s eyes being opened to her being a succubus, the path towards understanding runs through characters that just seem to have an air of suspicion and disbelief that is contagious. The lack of honestly, of trust, that simmers through the supernatural beings that she encounters, becomes a bit overused and while it makes sense in the setting, I think when that part of the story is muted for other plots that makes for a better story to read.
At one point Amar takes Caitlin to see Bianca, the first succubus other than Caitlin that is quite obviously one. Bianca is, overall, quite unlikable, really her personality is grating from the moment she appears and it reflects that simmering distrust that invades so many characters in this work. There’s a point when Caitlin needs a friend, one that understands, and it doesn’t come in this work.
Still, the relationship between Caitlin, Amar and to an extent, Bianca, is interesting in how it is very much like how water and oil don’t mix together. That thread I think will be something amazing going forwards and I think, somehow, that Caitlin being there will change things for the better.
The characters and writing are as good as the prior work in the series, the work ends on a cliffhanger, which is, to be honest, something I expected to see well before it unfolded. I liked that some of Caitlin’s past was told in her family, as unlikeable as most of them were. But as for pushing the story forwards, it really didn’t as a whole. It took a few strides, made a few points, but then came to a halt.
I feel like the series has promise and I want to see that. But things are getting too wrapped up in the moments and not telling the arcs. Perhaps moving onto why Caitlin is different and telling that story in the next work in the series would be a nice thing to see. The cliffhanger I think can wait a bit for the sake of Caitlin getting some understanding, a reality check at least. It has been offered, but not played through and I think that should come next.
Three and a half out of five pitchforks.
Another cliffhanger, more questions, and more confusion. At some point it would be nice for Caitlin’s truths to be accepted and for her story to move from trying to understand everything around her to the story of who Caitlin is and what her past means.
