A Review of Hungry Touch by Shona Husk

Hungry Touch by Shona Husk

Occasionally incubi appear in science fiction, and for me the thing I look for is, how that works, exactly, with who they are and what they can be. Beyond that, comes the question of their society, how that functions, and, hopefully, that the conflict is one with purpose, not something that is a flash in …

A Review of Incubus by Kat Cotton

A review today of a short prequel work to a series which, according to the author, will be appearing sometime in June of 2017. There’s a lot to like about the main character, there’s some really good storytelling as well. There’s just one little problem and while that doesn’t break the story completely, what happens …

A Review of The Sensual Chair by J.S. Hubbs

The thing about succubi, and incubi for that matter, is that they can take on many different forms. After all, shapeshifting is part of their appeal in many ways.

Having something happen without a reason bothers me. I’d like to know what dove a character to do what they …

A Review of Rocked by the Demon Futa by Jocelyn Saragona

Rocked by the Demon Futa by Jocelyn Saragona

I’ve reviewed quire a number of succubus stories by Jocelyn Saragona and my one singular issue with most of them has been that are too short. There’s not enough character development, not enough plot and far too much time spent on erotic scenes that lack real heat. This review then is of a work by this …

A Review of Balance Point by Katherine Rhodes

Balance Point by Katherine Rhodes

A short time ago I reviewed one of the books in The Complex series here on the Tale and you can find that review here. That work focused on incubi and had some mentions of there being succubi, though they didn’t appear. A review then today of another work in the series where the main character …
