A Review of Succubus – The Hunger by Alice May Ball

Succubus – The Hunger by Alice May Ball

I find the most interesting stories about Succubi are those that show them on the prowl and seeking those to claim as theirs… Call it my own Domme nature coming into play if you will. I like to see Succubi seduce the ones they focus on. I like to see them be erotic and powerful in their own right.

The story is better when the Succubus can give the one that calls to her, or is called by her, their own fantasy… Where things go from there matters as much as the erotica does. Some authors do understand that…

The work tells about:

Dark haired with a penetrating gaze in his deep, dark brown eyes, Morgan is a fine, hot-blooded male. His keen intellect and burning passions, though, have done nothing to prepared him for the unholy lust of a surprise night visitor. How far will her inhuman passions push him? Can he endure what she will propose?

A Succubus, who is never named, goes hunting and finds Morgan in a club. She knows that he sees her, tail and all, and is intrigued by him. So few can see Succubi around them, know them and, more importantly, be attracted by them. She then visits Morgan later in the evening and choices are made by both of them.

The Succubus is, very much, a tempting seductive being who knows what she wants and who she wants. From the first moment she is in control of the situation, takes Morgan and firmly controls what happens in the story. Having a tail is, for me, just the icing on the cake of her personality and it is nice to see that tail mentioned and used in some interesting ways.

Morgan’s character is a submissive one, but that has to be drawn out and directed by the Succubus and she does so in a way that tells of her ability to seduce him. She does not hurt him or make him do something that he doesn’t want to do. She knows his wants and desires and plays upon them towards an end.

When the moment comes at the end of the work where she asks of Morgan a question and what his acceptance of that question means, it reveals Morgan’s need and her own desires as well. That I thought was well done and the work ends on a fitting note. But it ends a bit too soon I thought. I really would have liked to have seen a part two of this story as the path was there to continue onwards.

Very hot writing with two well told characters. A few minor spelling mistakes to be found in the story. But, as always, the story is short and ends at a question which is left unanswered and I would have liked to know where it would have gone from there.

Four out of five pitchforks.

Seductive, tempting, and deliciously erotic. A lovely description of a Succubus on the hunt and finding one to be claimed… but leaves the reader just when the story turns the corner.

    First, my obligatory comment: this is the problem with stories that are so short. Nothing wrong with writing them, but selling them is questionable.

    This is especially true when the story is not finished. Unless the “part two” is nearby and in the wings (and we are approaching a year on this one).

    Such a fabulous story–according to Your Majesty–it’s a shame she stopped just short of the goal line.

    Hmm, I may pick this up simply from your review on it. Thanks for the great write up 🙂

    I think this story may have been written to “test the waters” so to speak. Hopefully your glowing review will give the author enough confidence to work on future stories!

    My friend John Dylena told me about your review, thank you so much for it.

    The story is one that fascinated me, and I wrote it to try and discover whether I could do it, and whether anyone would like it. I very much enjoyed the story and I have been hoping that it would find an audience to share, and the impetus for further tales.

    I’m so very glad to read your insightful observations, and the comments, too.

    Maybe there can yet be a sequel…

    Thanks again, and all the best,
