He lied. He cheated. Whatever he needed to do to make sales and to satiate his desires, he did. Women were his playthings. Until he met Lily Ardat...
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on January 21, 2018
Some souls are missing light within themselves. That will attract the darker forces to them, offering temptation. Whether they can resist or have no choice but to reveal their nature is a question only they can answer.
The work is a very dark tale of temptation, self-destruction and the taking of one’s soul for their own dark desires. It’s very much focused on corruption from the beginning and as it unfolds there’s really not much left for the main character to find a way out. Much of that is their nature and desires which the succubus of the work, Lily Ardat, can hook into and play with his soul.
Lily is very much an evil sexual being, closest to a stereotypical succubus in her nature, personality and actions. She doesn’t actually appear as one, but she uses sex and temptation to control those around her. It’s well done in that respect, but when things take a dark turn, they really turn dark.
Most of the story, being as dark as it is, didn’t have that much erotic heat to be found. There is some erotica, but it’s somewhat cold and there’s a seeming disinterest from the characters at various times as things happen. The darker aspects are well told, there’s no question of how dark the characters are. It’s not quite horror, but it’s certainly a dark tale with a dark ending.
Three and a half out of five pitchforks.
It’s a different sort of succubus story, mostly concerned with the corruption aspects overall. I think that works well in doing so, but I’d have liked more told about Lily and how things started with her.
