her when her husband died, Priscilla rules with an iron fist and keeps her extracurricular activities on the down low. After a horrendous incident when she first came into her powers, she strives to keep a
balance, skimming life forces here and there to stave off the never ending hunger constantly clawing at her insides. She’s got things under control until a handsome drifter named, Hugo, waltzes in and threatens to break her resolves. While I understood her difficult position, I found her coldness of
putting. The more we got to see of her background, the more I thawed toward her, but I felt like it came too late in the story to honestly convert me into a fan.
Hugo isn’t what he seems to be. Sexy, righteous, and under commands from a higher source, he fights tooth and nail to keep things between him and Priscilla on a platonic level. There’s nothing sexier than a good man who believes in cause, has an ass that would tempt an angel, and eyes that see through to your soul. Hugo is the very definition of a hero, but I never got to see what actually made him tick. I felt he was a deep well we only scratched the surface of. I felt their was a lack of connection between Hugo and Priscilla. I felt the lust and want, but with her being a Succubus I wanted to see a clear distinction. So I gave this three stars versus four.
With the short length, I think Ms. Shaw did an excellent job of creating a unique story, full of twists and turns. She painted a clear picture of life in that time. I love glimpses back in history.
