About The Book:

I’ll tell you a story that is beyond belief, a tale of woe and defeat. Things you can only imagine in your wildest dreams exist for real, of honest means. Before man and before time, there were only us, the angel and the demon kind…
I am Princess Naamah, a sex demon who is the only one that can change into either female or male form, the eldest child of Lilith and Lucifer. After thousands of years of seducing mortal men and women, I’ve fallen in love with a human soul, one whom I’ve encountered thru the centuries over and over. To be together, I must become human and my human lover has found a way, but to make the transformation complete, I must have a soul. Not just any soul, but the soul of my mother, Lilith, the first human female. To be with the one I love, I will risk everything, even certain death…

The Review:

Well-written short story by Mahogany SilverRain, Naamah: A Succubus Tale tells the story of Princess Naamah who is the first daughter of Lucifer and Lilith. She is the first born and able to transform at will to either Succubus or Incubus, unlike her other siblings. The job of the Incubus and Succubus is to seduce and steal the seed from Humans and transfer it out in order to give humans Daemon taint and magic. After several millennia of successful assignments, Naamah wants to become human as she has broken the cardinal rule of the Underworld and has fallen in love with the human Eli. The problem is that in order to become human she must have a human soul, the one thing that daemons are not granted as it shows a favour from god and allows humans to reincarnate. Lucky for her Eli has a plan, which is to steal the pure soul of her mother, and first woman, Lilith, which is kept under lock and key in the Hall of Souls.

This tale of sex had an interesting concept that held true to the end without giving in to clichés and pitfalls that can often occur in short stories like this. I found it to be endearing each time Eli recognized the form of Naamah with the idea that true love can overcome all obstacles. I enjoyed reading Ms. SilverRain’s turn on the old Christian Mythos of Angels and Daemons with a nod and acknowledgement to the Lilith fable, which I have always found to be a fun story in and of itself. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a fast read with a bit of sex and action.

Pagan Elements: I wouldn’t put down as pagan elements, but there is a talk on the old mythos of Angels and daemons with the story of Lilith.

Cover (Rated 1-10): 3

I am not a fan of this cover and I found that it looked cut and paste rather then fitting to the book or the storyline. It isn’t something that jumps out to me as intriguing or encouraging to pick up for a “good read”, but as always, never judge a good book by a bad cover.
