Plot Summary

Ava Hunter has it good. She’s young, gorgeous and has a great job. Ava Hunter has problems. She’s possessed by a succubus. Her ex-boyfriend turns out to be a jealous magician who left her a parting gift of a demon of lust. The succubus is doing its damndest to ensure Ava’s eternal damnation by unlocking every forbidden desire. Demonic lust ripping away every inhibition, Ava is unable to stop her body from seeking what it craves, regardless of the cost. Worse still, the demonic curse ends in one year—with Ava’s death. She has a mere four seasons of life remaining to beat the curse and save her soul. It won’t be easy, as the succubus will do whatever it can to make sure she’s too busy having fun to fight for her salvation.

Ava may be going to Hell in a handbasket, but at least she’s enjoying the ride.


Book Review

The following review was originally published by Tera on her blog, A Succubi's Tale on June 23, 2017


Ava has been cursed and there doesn’t seem to be anything she can do about it. The curse can’t be escaped, there’s no where for her to run and the heat that burns within presses upon her to do things that never would have crossed her mind. But payback is a bitch and in this case, the payback comes in the form of a succubus and a promise.

The work tells the story of Ava trying to come to terms with being cursed by a succubus and how that drives her sexually. As such, there’s a lot of focus on what sexual situations she gets into, the need that burns within her. This tends to make up quite a lot of the work, but underpinning this is a story that’s interesting and allows for her character’s faults to be brought to the fore.

It isn’t the erotica that drew me into this work by far, it is however Ava trying to come to terms with what she’s done, why she’s been cursed and fighting against it as best she can. Ava isn’t when it comes to it, a very likeable character when her past is laid bare. When she’s pressed by the succubus into doing some very questionable things, that introspection turns rather dark and it offers something of a reason as to why things are. That doesn’t mean however that the reasons make much sense, given who cursed Ava, and what the aftermath was. It’s a terribly sad reason to why things are and Ava’s reaction to the reason felt thin and lacked the emotional impact I would have liked to see.

The erotica in this work, at several points, is more porn movie scene than much of a hot flash. Some of it is rather brutal, which didn’t interest me at all, other parts were forced or unwilling and that didn’t work for me either. Perhaps the only erotic moment that I thought worked was the first encounter with the succubus which had heat and didn’t go over the top or seem completely wrong.

The succubus herself isn’t quite stereotypical. but at times things come very close to being so. The author decided to make the succubus both and and female at times, having them shapeshift forms and that was at times unique and I like that aspect of the succubus. Where things fell apart however was that the succubus is very single minded, doesn’t seem to have any other purpose than a means to push Ava into her next encounter. There’s a missing piece of the puzzle in the succubus and hopefully in time the series will get more into her character than it has so far. She’s two dimensional so far and that isn’t attractive as a main character in a story.

Overall this work offers a series which I think will be interesting to read. The main character really isn’t, as a whole, completely likeable and that offers an aspect of the series to play out. That said, too much of the work’s erotica didn’t appeal to me, which is a shame. There’s a lot of foreshadowing as to what will happen next and I’m going to hope that the series doesn’t turn towards being stereotypical.

I think that will be the one thing that will either make or break the series for me. The ending suggests a very stereotypical and almost rote scene for the next book in the series. Given some thought the author can avoid this, but we’ll have to see what comes.

Three and a half out of five pitchforks.

The next work in the series, Succubus Autumn, does not have an release date at the time of this review. More character development and a bit less porn movie erotica would make this something special and I really hope the series will be.

There’s more to Ava and the succubus’ stories than has been revealed and telling that story over the erotica should be interesting, if the author should do so.
