An account of an encounter with a Succubus, and what was quick to follow.
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on May 7. 2021
The discovery of a book with ancient secrets brings a lost soul to find what they have been missing. A moment of wonder in a sea of darkness that will forever leave its mark upon him.
The main character is never given a name, nor does the succubus receive one. As such it’s a bit of a flow of thoughts sort of story, the result of which becomes a bit scattered at times. Overall that’s not a major issue as the writer constructs a world around the story and a means to an end that makes sense. There’s purpose as things unfold, the events prior to the encounter with the succubus tell a lot about him.
Similarly the appearance of the succubus is delightful, how she is described, her movements and purpose all tell something about her. While the words spoken are few, they have meaning and provide a glimpse that I found endearing. The succubus isn’t stereotypical, which added to my enjoyment as well. The erotic moments are veiled, not being pressed to be something vulgar, which in the tone and telling of the story would have taken a lot away .
Perhaps the one thing that is missing comes to the resolution. There is a melancholy through the work, but the ending tips over the edge and there’s a heartfelt need that isn’t resolved.
Four of out of five pitchforks.
Though the text reads a bit oddly, it does suit the story and main character well. The ending is a bit melancholy, I’d have liked more interaction and story beyond the ending because there’s a lot of threads left dangling.
But it is a delightfully intriguing work that offers something about Succubi that’s a bit different which delighted me.
