Lisbette, a specialist in expensive role-play has met her match in Malcolm. When this mysterious stranger and his companion, Persephone, quite literally take her to the banks of Hell, and they make Lisbette expose her darkest desires that reveal the truth about her past? Or is Hell really more like Heaven?
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on February 1, 2015
Overall the story is interesting at the beginning. Lisbette talks about herself, that she makes her living in adult role playing and then tells about a client wanting to meet her at a bar. For the most part nothing seems odd until she goes into a back room with him and then things become very odd. She is bound, somewhat tortured, and then told that she is a Succubus. She does not believe it, but eventually has not choice but to do so and then face her future.
The problem I have is that the idea of Succubi in this work is mixed with that of vampires and then also takes a turn mixing them up in an odd way. Then you have some BDSM scenes that are more brutal than anything else. Lisbette not being able to accept anything happening makes it more confusing still.
There isn’t really so much erotic heat as it is a lot of base instincts and actions that end in just more seeming confusion. A number of spelling mistakes and word errors also make it hard to get involved with the work as well. But in the end I just found it very hard to enjoy the story for all of the fractured moments that happen in it.
I’m giving this work two out of five pitchforks.
Far too much blood and similar moments in this work for my liking. I still do not see why Succubi are seen as vampires and they have to deal with blood. Beyond that some editing would have been helpful… and another part of the story to explain all of the question left unanswered…
