A Review of The Devil Risen by Ellen Wilson

The Devil Risen by Ellen Wilson

Character development can make or break a story, especially when there’s a seeing unending number of them appearing. It’s interesting when those characters are based on myths and legends, but shifted to meet the author’s story idea.

A Review of The Ten by Randal Schaffer

The Ten by Randal Schaffer

Corruption is, generally, something that appears often in stories about succubi. It’s seen to be part of their nature and as such it can’t be ignored. But at the same time, the corruption needs seduction to make things work and that can be a telling thing within the story itself. A review then of a …
