He might just be willing to convert….
I'm at the museum with my church group when I bump into a man that ropes me in with his smooth words and fascinating ideas about demons. Feeling brave, I invite him to the evening church meeting, wanting to spend more time with him before he exits my life forever.
He agrees, much to my delight and my pastors ire. However, something about him doesn’t feel right, and his eye color keeps changing at random, which only causes my interest in him to intensify. I must know more about him!
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on August 18, 2015
Carmen meets Asher at the museum, and in a whirlwind, she is attracted to him, agrees to meet with him, and then, eventually, Asher reveals that his is an incubus and the truth about them.
This is actually quite a loveable romantic story for the most part, though there are some moments in which the story takes a slightly darker turn. Not between the main characters themselves, but rather around Carmen’s life, and what has happened around her for a very long time.
Carmen herself is very interesting, a fully told and strongly written character which I liked because she wasn’t a female character dropped into a story for the sake of some erotica. While that comes, eventually, as does Carmen herself, that really doesn’t feel like the point of the story. It’s more of an expression of her desires, thoughts, and yes, fears. There’s some thoughtful expressions of her own thoughts, some truthful conversation that made her quite a lot more. Carmen has a soul, and it really does show as the story unfolds.
Asher is the incubus of the two works, having two slightly different aspects to his character between the two. In the first, he is inquisitive about Carman, her life, and in being so, accepts an invitation which answers a question he had for some time. It’s more of a metaphysical one, but in having it, that gives him a bit more depth. But there’s more than that. He is thoughtful, intelligent, and holds himself in a way that speaks to the mystery that he is.
Asher’s incubus form reads beautifully, being mostly something well known but with a few little changes that make him slightly different. It is also interesting when he discusses what he is capable of, one of these being a kind of mind control which I will return to a little later.
Asher is, also, quite clear in explaining that while he is an incubus, their kind doesn’t hurt their partners, or wish to. For me that’s an important point and it is clear as the erotica comes along that he cares about a lot about Carmen’s well being.
The work focuses on story, and tells quite a good one, but there is a single erotic passage between Asher and Carmen that I think was nicely hot, had some cute moments, but also a little bit of a loving dominance as well. The erotica balanced against the story well, didn’t overpower it, and as such, I think made the entire work better.
I noted that there is a bit of mind control in the work and that is where I have a small problem. During their encounter, Asher and Carmen talk about her life and a very significant change she needs to make with it. However, in the wake of their encounter, Asher tells Carmen that she will not remember him the following morning. As such, the good that he tried to do, all of the time spent in helping Carmen to see something better for herself would seem to be lost. I’m rather disappointed if that is true because if it is, then Carmen falls back into things as they were. Considering how much Asher cared, that bothers me.
There are a few minor spelling mistakes, but nothing really outstanding. A little bit more editing to clean up some of the dialogue would be good as well. But this is still a good read with good characters and a complete story on its own.
Four out of five pitchforks.
A nice, romantic tale of discovery and one that worked well.
