I made a deal with the devil, but now his daughter is the only prize I want. Her body broadcasts sin. Her curves scream seduction. When I hold her in my arms, the rest of the world disappears. I can’t get her out of my head—the devil’s runaway daughter, the succubus who haunts my fantasies. Yet spending a single night in Elle’s bed promises almost-certain death. But if anyone can survive this beauty’s kisses, I can. I’ve dispatched countless demons to Hades, and my contract is paid in full. Still, hunting demons is a gamble, and a good gambler knows when to walk away. Elle is a risky bet if there ever was one. Too bad she’s also everything I want. I’ve always been a reckless man, and I’m determined to make the devil’s daughter mine—even if it costs me my immortal soul.
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on May 28, 2021
Finn made a deal for which he’s looking for a payout. But there’s one more thing to do and that’s to get what he really wants. Her name is Elle, she’s one of the devil’s daughters, and she doesn’t want to play the game to lose.
The work reads very much as a heist movie mixed with some D/s themes and a bit of mystery mixed in. Finn is interesting, holding much of his true intents close and not really letting anyone, especially Elle, into what he really wants until there’s no other choice. It does make for some confusion along the way and that’s mostly in Finn’s internal monologuing, something that both main characters do continuously. At times that’s a bit long winded and occasionally it can be a bit over the top, but getting through both of them trying to figure themselves out leads to some really inspired moments.
Elle is described as a succubus, but she really doesn’t show herself to be one, save for reflecting on her past, or the notes that Finn makes about her. Elle is a mystery as a whole, her past is skimmed over, and that was a bit disappointing. I’d have liked to know more about her, especially why she made the choices she did. Beyond that, her personality gets muted under the story which is focused on Finn for the most part.
The erotica has lovely heat, Finn and Elle are made for each other and when their truths come out, and the reality of both of their situations appears, it’s a satisfying means to take the story towards something better than I expected at the beginning.
This is a delightfully fun story, the characters are fleshed out and their emotions are told well. I’d have liked more background to Elle’s sisters as well, there’s a lot of story there to be told. Elle herself is overall still a mystery when the story climaxes and, again, learning more about her and her past would have been nice.
Perhaps the most promising thing is where the story ends, there’s a multitude of threads that can be picked up and brought to the fore. As this work is billed as the first in a series, it does bring the question if all of Elle’s sisters are succubi or not, and if the following works will focus on them more. It will be interesting to see where things go.
Four out of five pitchforks.
Well written, interesting characters and things transpire that are both unexpected and delightful. A good opening to the series and I look forward to where the author takes the series from here.
