Kurzbeschreibung

Daniel has just turned seventeen but he still hasn't hit puberty. He is only five feet tall, no body hair and pudgy. He and his buddy, Jimmy, have one last game on the Ouija Board before he moves away to an odd country house owned by a new stepfather.

Daniel's mother Kelli, has married Duncan Osborne , a high school football coach who has taken an interest in his overly indulged new stepson.

Daniel despises his new "shit-for-brains" stepfather, mentally accusing him of abuse.

One night Daniel awakens to someone in his room and is propelled into a fast pace sexual paranormal escapade, accelerating him into puberty.

His friend Jimmy comes to spend a few days with him and they soon get caught up in the most confusing adventure either one of them could have imagined.


Some Sexual Content and Mild Violence. NC 17

I wasn't entirely sure what to expect from the book as had been recommended as a romantic fantasy. It wasnt completely what I had expected and the beginning was good as you got to know the characters there was some mystery.. some sexual scenes which were a little odd at the beginning and the writer had attempted to explain the meanings behind everything at the end. It was however rushed and things still unclear as to whys how and then the wondering of where they go from that moment.. The concept of the spirit seemed a little confused as well..
However it was an ok read and it had potential it was just the ending which let it down for me..

3.0 von 5 Sternen Surprisingly twisted tale 12. April 2012
Von Mvargus - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is one time where I really wish Amazon allowed half stars. This book deserves a higher rating than three stars. The author took a risky path and managed to keep the plot together.

Sadly, while I believe its better than a three star book, I just don't feel that it is worthy of 4 stars. In the end I found myself calling it just under 3.5 and rounding down. If half stars were allowed, this would have been easy to rate at 3.5 stars.

The story itself was almost Lovecraftian in its complexity and nature. Saying much more than that might give away too much, but I was definitely impressed with the imagination and thought that went into creating the small universe the main character found himself in.

But that allow opened up the story for some flaws. One is something that Lovecraft himself appeared to understand. Any story requires that you be able to suspend your disbelief and follow along hte plot. Lovercraft usually worked around this by having the point of view character be someone that the reader would have an instinctive level of trust with. Most of his narrative characters were officials or reporters. IN Catch a Succubus the narrative character is a 17 year old boy who from the beginnning has others pointing out that he's had a history of daydreaming. He just doesn't quite bring the authoritive view that makes it easy to slide into the story. THe sad thing is that, the plot requires that he be that age. It was definitely a challenge for the author, and while he managed it well, it didn't quite sell the story.

The other area the story suffered from was in character development. Many of Lovecraft's stories appeared to have a specific ending he wrote for, and character development was secondary. Like Lovecraft, the author here seemed to have predetermined the ending, so the whole story flowed down a set path. Many of the characters don't get much time on the page and appear mostly to help push the main character down the plot path towards the ending. It's a good and well thought out plot, but I wanted a bit more character. When the final scene comes, the punch was lacking.

This is a very good imaginative writer, who came up with an interesting idea for a plot and managed to write an engaging story. My complaints should not be taken as condeming the book. I definitely recommend it to anyone seeking something different.

I do warn that on my Kindle Touch there were a few page format issues, where extra line breaks appeared, and for grammar and spelling purists there was a couple of minor issues, but overall the story is well presented.

3.0 von 5 Sternen hate the typos, love the book (except the ending) 4. Juli 2012
Von Furio - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I actually bought this because I thought it was a gay-themed fantasy (which of course it is not).

A rocky start, slow, with painfully despicable and bidimentional characters, threatens to doom the novel but as Daniel, his mother and stepfather arrive in their new home they personalities change entirely. This, of course, is quite a problem for consistency reasons but it is also a turn for the best as rhythm steps up to become breathtaking.
The story flows in fast forward and tension is very high making for a good read... until the end. There the author has to fasten up all the loose threads and she does it by submerging the reader with obscure, sexually charged metaphors which not only are difficult to understand but also do not release any of the tension.
The behaviour of the characters, especially of Daniel's mother, is inexplicable and the ending is not only rushed but also open as it is customary with horror novels (and one of the reasons I hate the genre).

Beside a.m. reservations one might add that the title is misleading. While it is true that sex is an essential component of the story and that most of it happens under magical coercion there is no trace of a succubus proper, that is a female sexual demon preying on males.

That said, the main problem with this novel is possibly another one, editing.
The sheer number of typos (some could even be grammar mistakes) is astounding but that is not all: words are missing and occasionally whole sentences are, if not whole paragraphs.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Catch a Succubus 8. Oktober 2013
Von America D. Alcedo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The story line was great. Very good start, the middle part of the book was intense, right to the ending, I was winding down to the end and blah. The ending did not explain itself. Kind of left me like a fish out of water. Didn't like the ending could have been better. The book had lots of twist and turns, which makes the story interesting. Would have loved a stronger ending.
2.0 von 5 Sternen Some parts are well done... Some need help 22. April 2014
Von TeraS - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Succubi are, in many stories about them, beings of both sexuality, but also horror. The thing about that is, if one overpowers the other, the story can suffer for that.

Still more worrisome is if another character, or characters, become what you remember about a story when the end comes… that can make the best of Succubi, or the worst of them, meaningless…

Nothing should ever be that. Regardless of the meaning or reason behind that purpose. But that happens in real life, it happens in stories and when it does… It does cause more than pain.

Overall, I found this a difficult story to read for several reasons, but the main one was Daniel’s stepfather. I don’t like the type of character he is, which is a crass, mean, and truly ugly person. While that is important to the overall story to a point, the difficulty for me is that he takes over most of the book and overpowers the rest of the characters.

That’s a huge problem as Daniel, his mother, and most of all the Succubi that appear just haven’t the same strength of character in them in comparison with him. I found myself remembering things he did through the story and the rest wasn’t as memorable. There wasn’t a lot of character development to see in the story either, which again is a problem for me personally.

Setting that aside, the appearance of the Succubi in this story is very much towards the horror aspects of what they appear to be which does, as it becomes more pronounced in the story, become somewhat stereotypical really. I didn’t care for her much, and while through her just about every major sexual possibility is touched on, it seemed to be more for titillation than to actually make a point in the story.

There is a good deal of violence and uncomfortable situations in this work and they are paired with moments of sex that, occasionally, are more than you would expect from a story like this.

One other thing makes me a bit squeamish about this work and that is the main character, as it is clearly stated in the summary, is seventeen years old. That makes this work even less a story that I enjoyed and I wonder why having Daniel be seventeen and not eighteen was so important to the story as a whole.

In the context of the story his age isn’t important, but as a matter of being able to actually read the story and not have that thought in the back of the reader’s mind? I think that some accommodation would have been nice.

One last point. The ending of the story was abrupt and it didn’t really fit well with the story. I also found that where it ended just made the accomplishment of finishing the work be less so. I found that whatever promise the story had at that point was completely ruined and that, that really hurt my opinion of it.

I’m giving this work two out of five pitchforks.

Well written, lots of atmosphere and story, but that’s not nearly enough. The problem is that the stepfather gets in the way of the story and that’s where things come apart. I think the author could have just as well gotten rid of him and the story would have been almost exactly the same.

3.0 von 5 Sternen One Big Wet Dream 18. April 2012
Von Antony Chow - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Catch a Succubus is a 17 year old teenager's journey of self discovery as he leaves his old life as a fat, chubby kid, and moves to an isolated farm where his newly married stepfather lives.

The story starts innocuously at first, as Daniel tries to adapt to a new life on the farm. But the story quickly turns twisted when he is visited for sexual encounters in his bedroom at night. Indeed, it turns out Catch a Succubus is a contemporary fantasy tale with heavy sexual content.

The story doesn't make a lot of sense to me, as hard as the author tries to put everything together for the reader, and I give the author credit at least for making the effort. The plot turns out to be somewhat similar to Anne Rice's Lives of the Mayfair Witches series, but has enough original content from the author.

I would not recommend this book to people who don't like sexual content in their story.
