It's been a few months since Neil transformed himself into an Incubus, a demon of lust and sex. The newly transformed demon and his succubus girlfriend, Bianca, have been keeping warm with their new routine. Sex for breakfast and sex for dinner, and again for dessert!
However, coping with their permanent change has taken a toll on their bodies. They still have to disguise themselves in front of their friends. As the month wears on, they determine it's time to come out of their demonic closet. While there are mixed reactions, one friend has a recommendation: Celebrate Valentine's Day without sex!
Taking the challenge to heart, Neil and Bianca set out to get each other a thoughtful gift that couldn't possibly be used for something naughty. Though with their new demonic instincts, what will they find, and how will they twist it?
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on February 12, 2017
It’s Valentine’s Day and it’s time for Neil and Bianca to come clean with their friends and reveal the truth. They hope for the best, as much as they can, but being an incubus and a succubus can cause problems. Sex is wonderful, but then it can’t be everything can it?
The story is more of a reflection upon what’s happened to Neil and Bianca with a little bit of angst from their friends and the attempt at trying to come up with a Valentine’s Day that isn’t all about sex. It sounds like a good outline, and at times there are some points where it well could be. However there are problems.
The story rushes from one moment to the next, really never pausing long for anything to develop or some expansion on the characters, both major and minor. There’s one scene of conflict that offers something, and it could have been a real change overall, but it vanishes as quickly as it started, leaving really nothing but some questions that were never answered.
At the same time, there’s more focus on Neil and Bianca being entwined with each other and having sex in every way possible. The scenes tend towards making them both caricatures of themselves, bordering on being almost stereotypical sex crazed beings. There is some intimacy, but it doesn’t last long before the pair are immersed in what can really only be described as porn movie level erotica.
The work is very short as well, which doesn’t allow for the hints of side-plots to go anywhere at all. The intimacy which appeared in the prior works between Neil and Bianca is but a flash here, seeming to say that their personalities have been deeply changed by becoming what they are now. It’s a bit telling that even in what seems to e a normal conversation, the pair can’t help but have wild sex together.
The work needs to slow down, to tell the story before going off and plunging into the erotica. That alone would have made this a much better read on its own. More so, the story sort of falls to a stop at the end, not really seeming to have a point, or purpose when the tale is done. There’s something lacking in the telling, the characters and the work overall. That, I think, comes to just not having Bianca and Neil be who they are and not the beings of sex they’ve become.
Three out of five pitchforks.
The work goes by in a rush, there are so many plots left dangling and that disappointed me the most. It’s a shame, honestly, because there’s story here to be told, but it gets lost in just having Neil and Bianca having sex almost constantly. That’s not interesting overall and what could have been interesting turns out to be fleeting and lost well before the story closes.
