Abby is back! And this time, she's brought her boyfriend, Felix. She's excited to take him to Lala's potion shop and share in a series of exciting transformations.
Felix is a little reserved. The scrawny nerd has enjoyed the fruits of dating Abby in her new plant girl body and when he meets the succubus shop owner personally, he has a few requests. Both would turn him into a creature twice his size; a buff, beefy minotaur, or a strong, scaled dragon.
Lala is more than happy to help the couple explore their new kinks but this time, there's a different price. She'll be extracting a few materials from Felix and using Abby as a guinea pig to test some new potions and artifacts. The first will turn her into a slime girl, transparent, morphable, and blueberry-flavored. The next will change her body into a dullahan, her head separate from her body!
The nerdy couple are being offered a unique opportunity. Would they dare refuse a succubus' deal?
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on Janaury 20, 2017
Abby returns to Lala’s shop with her boyfriend in the hopes of sharing with him the delights she’s found in her own transformation. Things do come with a price and Lala is open to some ideas, but the couple in love will have to allow Lala to get a little something in return. That isn’t decision isn’t a hard one, but for Felix, something else is going to be very hard when all is said and done.
Much like the other works in this series, this isn’t so much a story about a succubus than it is about a series of transformations being tried out. Lala, the succubus of the story, remains a mystery as before. There’s nothing told about her past, what drives her and her character. There are hints and vague ideas, but nothing really concrete to base one’s thoughts upon. I will note that Lala makes one comment about succubi in general which puts things in a way that made me smile however. It also gave, for the first time, an explanation about how the transformations are chosen and how they work.
Abby isn’t all that different from her first appearance and Felix is delightfully nerdy and shy at the beginning. As things unfold the heat between the pair builds, the erotica that comes after the transformations has some good heat, but it felt somewhat rushed in this work, being a bit set aside for the transformations themselves, which there are a lot. The transformation scenes are well written, there are some really funny moments in the telling as well and they are the core of the story overall. That tends to push some needed character development aside sadly.
The ending of the work is rather abrupt and, at least for me, again it was disappointing. There isn’t so much the story moving onwards as it was the story going back to tease two characters about things before coming to a halt. There are some threads to explore going forwards, assuming there will be more stories to be told, and I really hope there are for Lala just feels like she’s a character that’s underused.
Written well, the characters have voice and I did adore them. But like the rest of the series, the story lacks direction for quite a long time and when it finds its way, it has taken too long. The ending left me wanting and I wish it didn’t. Abby and Felix had fun, but at the end of things, nothing really changed all that much from where they started. Lala remains an enigma to be explored and that she wasn’t is another shame for me at least.
Three out of five pitchforks.
The formula is about the same, Lala’s past isn’t explored, the series of transformations seem like they were meant to be their own stories, but didn’t get anywhere and rather than lose them, they were added to this story. There’s a bit more heat, a little smidge of character development, but when the story closes, it didn’t feel like Abby, Felix or Lala were much further ahead than they were..
Sometimes it isn’t enough to have a taste, sometimes the better story is to have it all and see what happens. Perhaps that might be a story to tell about Lala some other time. Hopefully the author will return to Lala, her world, and tell a story about her. Because that mystery is interesting and needs to be told.
