Angelica is intent on finding this year's victim to gain her power and live another year as a gorgeous 25-year-old. But this year she is having a hard time finding the right man - until Joseph shows up.
Rude and overly confident, he fits the bill. But will he leave the room alive once the succubus is done with him?
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on October 21, 2016
Angelica is on her annual hunt to find someone to give her the thing she needs. But she is particular about whom she takes and Joseph ticks all of the boxes in the worst way possible. A sip turns into something more when he awakens her dark side and what comes next is more than Joseph expected things to be.
The work is told from Angelica’s perspective and it’s a rather odd one overall. She’s very clinical in her thinking, there’s little or no passion, no emotion. She simply is looking for a victim to draw into her power and then take a portion of their live to continue her own. Angelica seems to be not quite a stereotypical succubus in that she has certain rules that she feeds by and i have to admit that those rules I thought offered an interesting view into who she is.
The problem is that all of the hints, the thoughts about her past, the moments of decision, really aren’t explored very much. While the work is said to be 45 pages in length, there is a bonus story, which means Angelica’s story is slightly over 25 pages. Thus the work is more of a hot flash with some introduction, some set up for the erotica, and then the majority of the work is Angelica having her way with Joseph before his personality grates against Angelica’s own and then the work takes a turn for the darker.
There’s some succubus mind control and manipulation which was quite good, but beyond that the actual erotica didn’t have much heat in it for me. I didn’t like Angelica nor Joseph from the beginning of the work and that makes it very difficult to care about either of them, or see the heat simmering as the story is told. There’s a distinct lack of emotional connection overall and it’s the single flaw in this work.
Being privy to Angelica’s thoughts, it’s odd to see her thinking about things outside of what she is doing with Joseph. It seems very much like she’s done this so many times that she is acting by rote, almost bored. Even when Angelica is pleasuring herself and Joseph, there’s not any emotional heat in her words. It takes Joseph being very unkind for Angelica to find her emotions, to push herself into a different state of being in the moment.
At that point, the story became hotter, but at the same time, what Angelica’s attentions do to Joseph are odd. There’s a kind of reality disconnect around Joseph, which is odd, and when the story comes to a close, the ending left me wanting for how dispassionate Angelica returned to being and her last thoughts about what had happened.
I just found Angelica simply dislikable from the first to the last, the heat in the work wasn’t what I had expected it to be either. There’s some real difficulty to finding heat when both main characters simply do not make a connection with the reader. I wish the author hadn’t taken the story in the direction they did, being rather a stereotypical direction for Angelica as a succubus to take.
Three out of five pitchforks.
I found myself thinking of a better story, actually two of them. What would Angelica’s reaction be to taking from someone good, which she avoids, or more interestingly, what if she took from someone that thought they were “evil” but weren’t? What happens then? That’s the story that I wonder about for who Angelica seems to be. This story had its moments, but didn’t find its footing in my eyes.
