The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on July 3, 2016
The work is a large collection of poems which connect to the theme of succubi on various levels. Some of them are very clearly meant to be associated with succubi, some are more personal, perhaps even somewhat focused on the darker needs that exist within souls.
The themes are anything from simple expression of a woman becoming a succubus through the hard relations of a violent relationship or sexual encounter. But in each there is a singular truth, a story to tell and in every case that story is a telling one that matters.
Some of the imagery is very erotic, and some might see that to be a bit more than they might expect. However, the words are carefully chosen. They are not there so much for titillation, but to give a darker expression of the emotions that the poems seek to bring out in the reader.
While there is darkness here, there are the occasional moments that allow for a bit of hope, a moment of reflection. They offer a moment of rest between the darker explorations. But in this comes the thing about this work that gave me a bit of pause.
The overriding focus is on darkness, loss, some degree of evil at some points. There’s really very little time spent in seeking out the light, to allow for love. Much of that comes from the focus of the work, and I understand that, but at some point there needs to be a little break.
While succubi, in their stereotypical form, are “evil” and that serves as the focus to the collection, that isn’t all they are. As much as I enjoyed the author’s words, her symbolism, her expression of want and need and fulfillment… I would have liked a little bit of hope somewhere to balance things out more than they are. Dark cannot exist without light after all.
Four out of five pitchforks.
Really quite the amazing collection of poems and I think there’s really some interesting thoughts and ideas that are touched upon. But with all of the good here, there feels like something is missing and perhaps that comes to one of the most base emotions of all.
