A lovely Succubus Poster Art…

Last night I was looking on Zazzle.com for Succubish things… Lots of Succubus things there, mostly very kitschy in all aspects, save for one thing that caught my eye…

This is the work of an artist named Tammy Pryce and is called Dark Mistress.

I love the overall composition of this work and her wings and tail are lovely, but regrettably she has not horns, which in my thoughts would make her look more complete as a succubus…

The other thing that does tug at me somewhat is that she holds a sword and not a pitchfork which would be more fitting for the overall image I think somehow. I also wonder about her boots, they seem a bit… off? I look at her clothing and they just don’t seem to match her boots… Perhaps long laced heels would have been a better choice or change her clothing into something that is a bit less raw and more sexually powerful?

A lovely work, which you can find at Zazzle.com here for purchase as a poster.


EDIT: I received an email from Tammy’s husband with a link to her website. I’ve added that to my link page, and you can see her lovely art here:


So many wonderful images of fairies and elves and you really should visit!

Nahemah Movie… What ever happened to you?

This is a question that came to me while I was looking through my lists of Succubus related videos on YouTube.

This is probably one of the bigger mysteries for me at least…

And in case the embedding doesn’t work:


This is, or was, a teaser for a movie called Nahemah that was supposed to be released sometime in 2007 or so. At least the trailer/teaser is dated from that time…

It is supposed to be the work of Matt Riley and a company called MDR Productions, starring Samantha Reyes in the teaser and I assume the movie itself…

Here’s the thing…

There is nothing about this movie anywhere on the web that I can find. It’s like this was a half formed idea that was abandoned after the trailer was made for something else…

Would be nice to know if this was supposed to be about Succubi, and what the film was about if it isn’t…

Anyone with a clue about this, please comment and let me know?

Dream Demon Review

I finally finished reading a novel this week that has a connection to Succubi, and so this is going to be a sort of mini-review of it…

The work in question is called Dream Demon and was written by Keith Gouveia. It was released in 2003 and is 120 pages in length.

The story revolves around the tale of a trio of high school boys that summon a Succubus and what happens to them as a result of managing to do this.

I’ll be blunt here… I didn’t enjoy this at all…

I know that this book was written for the horror market and, of course, since the characters in the book are rather young, there is little of the “typical” succubus acts in this book.

The Succubus, who’s name is Catrina, is cunning and so very evil as you would expect her to be, but there is so much missing in her being I think.

But that pales in comparison to the actions of the bullies in this novel, and more so, the responses to their actions that the adults in this work respond with. The book started out dark and just became progressively darker ending with an event that, for me, was totally unneeded and unwarranted.

While the major characters in this novel are fleshed out, I felt as if the minor characters were paper cut-outs or worse at times. Their thoughts, actions, and more importantly, words spoken seemed dull and lifeless which bothered me to no end.

Generally, I love books about Succubi, and I have no problem staying engaged in the work until I finish it… Usually reading it again to pick up things I might have missed…

This book was a struggle for me and to be honest, I can’t see myself reading it again. That comes back to the overwhelming sense of despair, darkness and loss that seeps into almost every page of this work.

That to me, is a shame…

Catrina is an interesting Succubus, I will admit, but at times she is so stereotypical in her actions that, to me. she seems to be a caricature of a succubus.

This brings me back to something that I hold in me when I read Succubi stories. If you don’t have a sexy seductive succubus and just have something evil and dangerous, you do not have a Succubus. You have a creature of evil that cannot, in my eyes, be a Succubus and shouldn’t be called one.

I’m going to give this novel five pitchforks out of ten.

Can’t recommend it for those that love Succubi to be seductive, can if you are looking for horror and darkness though…

You can find this novel at most book retailers, and there is a link to this novel’s page on Amazon.com in the book cover image in this article above.

Succubi Image of the Week 111

This week’s Succubi is the gift of a reader of the Tale and a fan of Succubi. He gave permission for me to display this work for this week’s Succubi and I thank him so very very much for allowing me to do so…

This work of art, and it truly is that and more, was created by the artist rafCut on Deviantart. You can find his site there with this link.

And the original page showing this work is here.

This work was commissioned by Merman1234 on Deviant art and the story behind this work is described as being:

The succubus has married the king of
this realm, and on their wedding night
she reveals her true self to him.
Now she is the queen of the realm!

I am, quite literally, floored by the quality of this work. The shimmer of light on the latex-like clothing she wears is just perfect. Her tail, horns and wings are so finely detailed making them perfectly matched for her body. I love her hair, the textures in it as amazing too… If I didn’t know better I would think that this was a posed painting that rafCut worked from, but as I understand it, the only thing he had as a reference was a single photo.

This artist does take commissions, obviously, and you can find that information at his commissions page here.

There is also a blog, written by this artist which you can find here showcasing his works.

Again, many many thanks to Merman1234 (I know their real name, but won’t share that)…

*huggles and love*

Succubi don’t play in this Playground…

And now… Yes… Once again it’s time to look at a Succubus costume and just cringe… A lot.

This is… Well it’s a train wreck isn’t it?

This costume consists of a one-pice dress and a pair of armlets and that’s the extent of it all. The boots, which don’t help this at all, do not come with this costume.

That’s right. No horns. You get to pay for those if you you want them, but why would you? I mean, it’s only a Succubus costume isn’t it? Not like having a pair of horns, or, for that matter, a tail would be of any use would it?

It bothers me the way this costume looks so unfinished. All of the threads and fabric hanging around all over it just makes me twitch and not in a good way…

They call this the Devil’s Playground, I’d me more comfortable calling it the Devil’s Trainwreck to be honest.

You can find this costume on the internet for around $45 USD. What is bothersome about that price is that there are a lot of other costumes available in which you get horns and occasionally, a tail, for the same amount of money.

So really, this isn’t a good thing to buy all the way around…

I’m giving this a half pitchfork out of five.

If it included the horns and a tail, I’d give it one pitchfork, but that would be me being generous…

Still looking…

Temptations XXXXVI – The Grotto – Part XIV

Pushing the limits a bit is the Succubi Queen… But is it enough or needed to be or just a mistake?


Temptations XXXXVI

By TeraS and Darkside

My name… It seemed fairly irrelevent now… I could feel her stroking my stomach, a wierd sensation on top of everything I was wearing. I returned to her questions.

“I… will be Shade. I will require you as an anchor in this world.”

My first instinct when she shivered was to hold her, but then I realized that it wasn’t from the cold. I felt her rubbing against me, but before I could react, I felt our power starting to merge…

I felt my own power grow, and grow more stable. There was a tickle on my leg, but before I could react, I heard her question.


Tera smiled as her hands moved up his body. Up over his chest, along his shoulders… Her smile became sultry and she licked her lips slowly. Then her fingers found their way to his cheeks. She cupped them and then drew his towards her lips. Her scent was stronger still. The light playing off her so wet red lips. The power contained within her playing across her eyes as she looked into his. She whispered to him, her voice full of promise and passion, “Shade you are… The one between the light and the dark… The in-between and the question…”

She smiled in an amused and yet understanding way as she said, “You are so very much like me Shade… Caught in the middle with no one to take you home…”

Her lips brushed against his for a moment, the taste of cherries left behind on them for his tongue to savor. Then she pressed herself tightly against him, her tail wrapping around their waists holding them together tightly. Her lips sought his out in need and then she kissed him so deeply that for a moment they were almost as one in that moment…

Her kiss came with a flood of the taste of cherries, and my head swam. Instinctively, I wrapped my arm around her and pulled her in and responded to the kiss. In that moment, I thought I could feel her… soul? Warm, kind, and wrapped in lust. I found myself wondering what she would do next.

For a time there was nothing else but the kiss for them….

Her needs and passions entwined with his so gently. He could feel her body against him. Her breasts pushing against his chest. The heat from her body warming him and adding to his grounding. The pleasure and promise of her whispering into his ears of all of the pleasures he could ask of her and she would grant them…

For she was his anchor…

The kiss finally broke and she licked her tongue across them and smiled. Her forehead touched his and she asked in a soft voice, “How may I please you Shade… Ask of it and it is yours….”

Then she tilted her head back and looked into his eyes without fear or worry of that which he desired of her….

My head swam, and I was lost in the kiss for a while. I pulled back a little and looked in her eyes.

“So where do we take it from here, eh”

Tera smiled at his question and answered, “That should depend on you I think Shade…. Ask of something and I will provide… Make a wish and I will make it come true… All is possible if you need it to be so…”

Then she slipped her hands over his shoulders to twine them  together behind his neck. She nibbled her lips as she said, “Enjoy the moment for the moment Shade… Soon the threat that I face will be and then we won’t have this moment for a while again….”


Oddly the thought that comes to me is make it so…

But that’s another story isn’t it?

Storm Clouds

Chapter 10

By TeraS

Tom leaned against a tree watching Brent playing with his children next to a small fountain. He had a puzzled expression on his face at what the fountain was supposed to mean. After all, you wouldn’t expect an angel motif in a place that didn’t seem to have a lot of angel looking beings in it.

Camilla came around from behind the fountain carrying a small box in her hands. When she came close to Tom, she asked him if he had eaten anything. When he didn’t answer, she simply put a wrapped sandwich in his hands and with a nod of her head directed him to have a seat at a picnic table nearby.

After getting settled, Tom watched as she began to pick at a salad. He unwrapped the sandwich as he asked, “Something bothering you?”

She paused and then began, “What bothers me Thomas is that I have lost a Sister. I suffer for that. But that’s nothing compared to Brent and his children.”

Tom picked out a slice of tomato, “How bad is it for Brent?”

She poked the fork into the salad with some force, “If he didn’t have the children I am sure that he would…. be no more.”

Tom considered that as he took a bite, “He’s still here. So are the kids. And you. He doesn’t strike me as the type to put a bullet to his head and end it all. Sorry Camilla, I’m not going to dwell on that.”

“Heartless aren’t you?”

Tom reached into a pocket of his jacket and tossed a small notebook between them, “Haven’t the time. Brent gave me a list of people that had something against him. I can look into the people. You game to grill the ones that aren’t?”

She turned the notebook around and opened the cover. After a moment she whistled, “I would not have guessed at any of these.”

Tom wiped his lips with a napkin, “How bad are the names you recognize? The ones I do are lousy, but I can take most of them from the list. I’m looking for a killer and most of them are playboys, playtoys and thrill seekers. They don’t qualify.”

Another bite, “Three of them I’ll have to grill.”

She considered him, “At least your list is a short one. From this side I can see ten times that of creatures and things that would have loved to be the one that did this…”

Tom shook his head, “Not love Camilla. Need.”

She started back at the beginning of the list again, her fingers tracing down the names. Then she said, “Two that we can get to. One that I would not touch with a ten foot pole and an army of hellhounds behind me.”

Arching an eyebrow he asked, “That bad?”

She shrugged, “Worse. We’ll need help to see that one.”

Tom considered his sandwich, “You know something? I am more inclined to believe that the one that did this is on your turf than mine.”

Raising her fork she explained, “It can be that someone, as you say, on our turf started this, but you don’t understand how things work in your world. You see Thomas, while some creatures like us can exist there and interact with your people, there are so many more that need an anchor, something or someone to believe in them and give them purchase in your world. Without that they can’t do anything physically.”

Confused, Tom just nodded for her to continue.

“Magic is thin in your world now. Creatures that once thrived in your world now can’t be there. Oh they can look in, try to whisper thoughts and ideas into people’s minds and see what happens, but without someone that believes, like a wizard, mage or witch… They can’t actually do anything there.”

“Then how do you all manage to be there?”

She smiled, “Sex is a powerful thing. Love more so. If you are intimately connected with both of those… Crossing over isn’t a hard thing to do.”

He nodded slowly, “Base desires and overwhelming needs are the gateway to the soul or something?”

“Or something.”

They were quiet for a time until Tom asked, “I need to get back. Get on and see those names. Can you check your list and…”

She shook her head, “No. You are stuck with me for the moment Thomas. You can do your investigating there and then we’ll both see what happens.”

He frowned, “You are telling me that I am going to have to go with you to see what you are afraid of seeing?”

“Afraid doesn’t mean that I will not go there. But here’s the thing. You are a detective. You know how to ask questions and moreover see more than I do. I think that you asking the questions of them will get us further than I can alone. Besides which, you have one power over them that I don’t.”

Tom looked shocked, “Power? I got nothing.”

A small shake of her head, “You have free will. You have the ability to choose. Most of the creatures we will have to see do not have that luxury. They are connected to other beings in ways that make them what they are. You however, you don’t have that flaw.”

He sighed, “No I have the flaw that I have to do the right thing.”

She munched on her salad, “It’s not a flaw. It’s a gift.”
