A small town girl moves to the city to escape her mundane life in the country. She is convinced that she was born to make others happy and would never actually achieve happiness herself. It isn't until she meets a power hungry incubus that for some reason cannot feed on her chi that she realizes her bad experiences with love may have nothing to do luck and more to do with destiny.
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on February 5, 2017
Sage has left her small town life and started a new one in the big city. A new job found, she starts putting her life together, but finds that there’s something happening around her. Her new boss, Knox, isn’t exactly human, he’s an incubus, and he’s very interested in her. Sage has no idea why, but when the truth comes out, it leaves only questions behind.
These two works combined tell an interesting story that doesn’t depend on erotica or sexuality to drive the plot onwards. What does is the mystery of Sage’s past, who Knox is, and what exactly is going on around them both. There are quite a number of subplots and mysteries to untangle, which makes this quite good. But while the page count is over seventy pages, in fact each part is only twenty or so pages.
As a result, while much time is spent setting up the story, telling of Sage and introducing Knox and other characters, there isn’t much in the way of actually telling much about either Sage or Knox. Even when something is said, for example that Knox is an incubus, it’s skimmed over and barely registers overall. In the same way Sage’s reactions seem odd, almost matter of fact at times and that doesn’t quite feel right either.
Eventually Sage’s real secret, the one she doesn’t know, comes out, but that’s a fleeing moment that hasn’t time to go anywhere or do anything before the story comes to a screeching halt. There’s a real need for the story to continue, but at the time of this review that hadn’t happened.
There are some minor editing issues with the work, which do not take much away from the story. The lack of direction at times is a problem as is the extremely long building up to something happening in the work. Almost the entire first part is setting things up, but not getting very far or introducing Knox to the work. It takes the second work to have that happen, but again that seems to be without direction or focus. Combining the two works into a single volume would be a start, expanding on the story another and continuing the series onwards to what comes next would be the best thing by far. There’s something good here, it needs to have the chance to happen.
Three out of five pitchforks.
It’s a shame the author didn’t continue with this series as the first works had quite a lot going for them. There’s a good deal of mystery about Sage and her father, not to mention Knox himself. A lot of things unspoken, a lot of threads left to be gathered up and brought together. There is story here, it isn’t erotica, at least not as yet, that seems to be coming at some point from the story so far. If that ever happens that is.
