Book Review

The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's tale on November 20, 2016


The story of Althea, first of the succubi, powerful but flawed. The tale of Rachel, successful, but missing a part of her soul. The tale of a family, lost, seeking direction, finding that, in the end, only family really matters. A story of need unspoken, wanted, craved, but not brought to the surface until it cannot be refused. The threat of darkness unleashed and what will be if it is not stopped. A truth, faced by all, in that one’s own nature is shaped by one’s soul.

There are a number of themes and story plots that unfold in the series, but the single focus comes to the question of family. What one would do, needs, lives for within one. How Althea comes to be part of a family, her acceptance, over time, of something that has been with her for ages, not being able to express it fully. Telling of the succubi, who they are, what their purpose is and what they want, as so many souls do. The mixture of tales to be told allows for amazing character development, none of them being quite the same when the story comes to a close, which for me is the mark of good story telling.

It is a work of erotica, touching on many different flavours. It allows for each connection, need and want to be explored, but also explained. It isn’t sex for the sake of it, nor is it erotica without meaning. It is a vital part of the story, it presses on each character to figure out who they are, what they need. Purpose drives the story, makes the heat more, expresses the relationships and makes them grow.

It is a full work, the story has a beginning, middle and ending. There’s no need for drifting away from the core characters, to go off on tangents without meaning. The story is tightly written, the details matter, the dialogue sounds right, with every character having their own, clear voice. Each is given the moment to shine, to be at the core of the story. Being so, the moments of laughter, of tears, are much more emotionally impactful.

There are, of course, some story plots left open, the appearance of two characters that made me smile, one in particular for which I was thrilled beyond words to see. The emotional connection is delightful, the resolution of Althea’s arc made compete sense. Most of all, the gift which appears, in all of its forms, is one that’s perfect in so many important ways.

I’ve loved the series from the beginning, I love it even more now. Althea, Yasna, Rachel and her family are dearly loved for all they represent and have been. One of the most delightful, passionate series about succubi that I’ve read in some time. I dearly hope Althea’s story will continue, but if not, knowing her has been a dear pleasure to me.

Five out of five pitchforks.

A dearly loved series, one that I have loved from the beginning and now in a single volume, the story comes fully into what was held within the pages. A lovely heartfelt story that made me smile, tear up at times, but throughout was true. Well enjoyed, fully recommended and more.
