Tabby Boone, owner and head witch of Abby Normal Witchery, needs to replace some stolen supplies before she can cast fortunes for her next customer. With her usual supplier out of town, she finds herself ransacking a grave in the middle of the night.
Only, she isn’t alone. She chances upon a new mausoleum and decides to double her bounty for the night. Instead of finding the skeleton she expects, she enters to see an opulent suite that rivals any in Vegas. And a tall, dark, and broodingly sexy incubus demon.
Incubi will turn their victims into mindless zombies, and Tabby can’t let the world suffer that fate. Offering her curves for the fight for humanity, can she top and tame the demon before he makes her his own?
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on May 6, 2016
Tabby goes looking for things she needs to work her spells. Finding what she needs, she feels like someone is watching her. Going one step too far means she has attracted the attention of an incubus, and now Tabby finds that she’s got a hard problem to deal with.
The work is, for the most part, a hot flash of erotica with a good deal of story leading up to it. There is a fair amount of time spent telling Tabby’s story, explaining her world, and why she’s in search of the things she is. A scattering of humour here and there was nice and overall the tone of the story was playfully fun.
The incubus, who is never named, is interesting in that while his tone, needs and focus are somewhat stereotypical, his actual form isn’t. He is something more than a sprit, something less than what one expects an incubus to be. His powers of shifting reality are unique and how Tabby is ensnared by him works really well I thought.
The erotica is a slow thing to develop, taking a lot of time for the incubus to seduce Tabby, draw her into his gasp and that worked well. When the actual battle for who overcomes who turns that corner from seduction into something close to the incubus dominating Tabby, the erotica becomes a little less. Tabby’s experiences, her reactions, her coming closer and closer to the edge is very hot, but the incubus slips away from being seductive to demanding and that took something away.
The ending is somewhat abrupt and part of that comes from the illusion created being torn away in an instant and revealing what actually was happening. At that moment the heat was taken away from the story. But then the work comes to a close in the next few lines and as such the impact is lessened, if slightly so.
The ending has a little bit of a promise in it for Tabby, one that would be interesting to see unfold. Perhaps the incubus will come to her again through another means and that might tell more about the incubus than he is simply a being that wants sex above all else.
Good heat, the characters have life, needs, and passion. I would have liked the incubus to be more than a sex fiend, perhaps the idea of him creating “sex zombies” could have been explored somehow. There’s a good story at the core of this work, I wish some of the open ended questions had been answered. Perhaps the next work in the series will allow for more character development and storytelling to match the erotica.
Three and a half out of five pitchforks.
A cute hot flash with just enough story to hold things together. It’s a shame that the author went a little too far in the last page and shattered the illusion they created, and not giving the incubus a name seems a shame as well. Tabby is interesting, the incubus as well and the series begins well. Hopefully the series can build upon this going forwards to develop the characters further rather than just be series of snapshot erotica.
