The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on March 27, 2016
An incubus stalks his prey as a detective tries to solve the murders that are rampant. But the truth takes her in an unexpected direction. Sometimes knowing the truth isn’t enough, not for the one responsible or for the one looking for justice.
The work is less about the incubus than it is about what happens to Mynah as the story unfolds. There’s so much more focus on all of the women that are involved in the story than the incubus himself and that’s a little disappointing.
There is but one short series of paragraphs when his true form is seen, a scattering of his past is told and then the story moves back into his finding pray, having sex with them, which has very little heat in it, and then their passing on. While from time to time his thoughts are heard, and they are somewhat remorseful, that just doesn’t ring true much of the time. It’s confusing as well, not really having focus, and being so there’s really not a lot to hold me into the story.
The work overall is morbid, sad, and depressing for all of the characters. There’s nothing of joy or being positive to be found. It’s just a slow downward spiral for Mynah and others, the incubus just appearing from time to time to add a bit to the story before vanishing again.
The story is confusing because it seems like there’s something going on around Mynah, but that’s not really focused on and when the ending arrives, that too doesn’t make a lot of sense overall. There’s a gap between the start of the work and where it ends that bothers me. It’s like there is a lot of missing information that was either left out or edited away.
The incubus himself seems to be quite stereotypical as well, what happens with him happens often, his appearance, his true one, at least as much as we are told of, seems to be stereotypical as well. He just wasn’t interesting as a character, being rather two-dimensional overall. Much the same can be said about a lot of the other characters as well, they fitting into a lot of roles that are familiar.
My overall problem was that I didn’t find my way into the story, I didn’t really care about any of the characters. There was no heat in the sex scenes, they really can’t be called erotica in all honesty. It’s just a work with no heart, no passion and nothing that I enjoyed. It’s a shame because the plot summary I thought offered something and it could have worked well. But it didn’t.
Two out of five pitchforks.
I just couldn’t get into the story, I didn’t care about what was happening all that much. There wasn’t a lot of time spent with the incubus himself, so he’s less of a character as a result. The ending didn’t connect well and the flow of the story felt much too scattered. I hoped for something more because of the plot summary, but in the end the plot summary was promising something not to be found really here.
