Jacie was no stranger to being different. From her body developing early to simply knowing every dirty emotion her peers ever had towards themselves and others, she could have been the queen bee.
But Jacie's mother had a dirty little secret, and now Jacie is paying the price for it. Trapped in an unending sleep for three years, it takes a chance encounter between her step-brother and his girlfriend to bring her back to the waking world. Jacie has no choice but to watch as Gavin takes his girlfriend hard and without protection, but even he has his secrets...
... and now Jacie knows.
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on November 17, 2015
Jacie tells of her life, the problems that she has and cannot understand very well. Then her life changes dramatically and she is lost in a coma to her family. Until one day her step-brother and his girlfriend visit her… and then Jacie discovers what she can do… and sees the world through awakened eyes.
Jacie’s powers, her abilities, are very Succubus-like in a lot of ways and in the telling of her past, it’s clear that she knows that something isn’t right about her, but cannot understand what it is. Apparently her mother brought this “curse” to her, but Jacie’s mother is long passed and so she needs to deal with things herself. Telling that story at the beginning of the work does make a connection and it is a very good read as she tells of the things she can sense and knows about others.
Even when Jacie is in a coma, she tells of being there, what it is like, and how it felt, all of which I thought set up some really interesting possibilities. When her step-brother and his girlfriend enter the picture, then Jacie’s powers come into the fore and that leads to the hot flash of the work. The thing is that as a whole the erotica really isn’t all that interesting compared to everything else that Jacie spoke of before, and afterwards. There is purpose to the erotica, which is a device to get Jacie out of her coma… but otherwise I didn’t feel a lot of heat.
The work is short, really much too short by far and leaves many questions about Jacie, her family and more specifically, her mother. There is a lot of mystery to explore about Jacie and that should be interesting to watch unfold as the series continues. It is well written, there wasn’t really anything that took me out of the story by any means. I just felt like the erotica was a bit of an afterthought and that bothered me.
Two and a half out of five pitchforks.
The work has a lot of promise at the beginning, but then moves into a hot flash that really isn’t all that hot as a whole. However, the hints about Jacie, what she is, and what she can do offers the possibility that this series could become something more than it seems… We’ll see if that happens
