Witness the fall of an angel and follow her into the depths of hell as she learns the true nature of the universe. When she meets the Queen of Lust, her world is turned upside down as all of her beliefs are challenged and her boundaries pushed. The first of the Angels and Demons saga, this story reveals some of the nature of the universe and much of the depravity in the court of the Succubus Queen.
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on December 6, 2016
An angel makes a choice and finds herself barred from Heaven. Alone and without direction, Lilith comes to claim her and lead her on a new path. Not all paths are easy, the truth hurts. In the end, a choice has to be made, regardless of the circumstances.
Overall, the plot is well thought out, Ketara as a character is unique and tells a very strong story. The world is rich in characters, their stories vast and different. The problem is, however, the pain and suffering along the way and the lack of light that deepens as the work goes on.
Ketara suffers many different ways in this work, some of which are very nasty and brutal in how they effect her. I don’t particularly like reading about suffering and similar themes, so when this happened to Ketara, I found myself skimming those parts of the story.
As things progress, Lilith brings with her a lot of questions, a lot of things to think about. She’s the most interesting character of all, mainly for the cloak of mystery she carries with her. The other characters have their purposes, some of which drive the story well. But again, the focus on ‘teaching through pain’ bothered me.
There is a scattering of erotica, a mildly hot flash and one that really wasn’t so much so. The story overcomes this, Ketara developing as she must in the story. Much of the world around Ketara is never really explored, leaving many questions behind to think about.
Possibly the largest one is Lilith herself, but as well just as large a question is Ketara. Both aren’t quite who they were at the beginning and where that takes them would be good to follow up on. I feel like there was a lot of story left out for everything that happened to Ketara herself to divert the story. It would be nice to know more about that.
Three out of five pitchforks.
It’s an interesting beginning to the series which seems to suggest a path for Ketara and the reader to follow. But rather than continue to tell that story, the next work in the series moves away from telling of the world to a particular moment.
