About Carl East
Carl East was born in 1956, in the City of Hull (officially Kingston upon Hull), in Northeast England. He began his writing career after turning 40, beginning with imaginative tales and then moving onto short stories. In the years that followed, he improved his writing skills with the help of other writers and online authors who gave of their time and skills, to offer advice and constructive criticism.
His vivid imagination took off as his writing explored the various genres of Science Fiction, Horror and Romance. He attained his greatest success while writing Erotic Fiction as he weaved stories of lusty encounters with distinctively entertaining characters to tickle the fancy of the growing fans of Erotica.
The years of heading out the door to a factory, manufacturing, or service job is now a thing of the past. Instead, he spends his time in a pleasantly chaotic home office, legs stretched out as he ponders his next story. With a steaming hot cup of tea and snacks by his side, the keyboard silently awaits, for the next “Ah Ha Moment” when another story begins.

Serena the Succubus returns, the attempt to release her from her curse didn’t work and once more the owners of the house discover the fun and games that having a Succubus can bring.
It’s a much better overall story than the first book was. It isn’t really just about the erotica, which is a welcome change from the first work. There is more about the powers of a Succubus, what she and do, what the experience is, and what that transforms the relationship of the main characters of the story. It becomes a story of learning about secal experiences, what they bring to relationahips, and how, if you take the chance to explore sexually who you are, you discover things about yourself and the one you love that you never would have expected.
I felt the expanded background of Serena added a lot that was missing from her personality in the first work. There are also moments of her using her powers which I thought were interesting use of the Succubus legends towards what they are capable of.
Regrettably, this work seems to close Serena’s story. However, I had thought the first work did so and then this story appeared. So while there is a finality to the ending, there is always the possibility of her returning in another story or, and I think this is more likely, she appearing to other characters in other places.
Serena becomes more of a Succubus that I like in this work. She is more sensual, but also most thoughtful and more caring. Still, she needs a little more personality, and a pair of horns and a tail for my personal tastes. Nonetheless, a vast improvement from the first time she appeared.
The erotic moments are much better, more involved, and more descriptive, which I enjoyed. The story was not driven by them however, it is not a hot flash as much as a moment in a larger story I felt. Lovely anf hot, but not so over the top as to be silly ot seem like the author was not paying attention to the relationships in the story.
It’s a bit of a shame that the two works were not released as a single larger story. While it would make the entire work only 20 pages or so, that is a good core of a longer, more involved tale I think. And I would like to see that. I can see a novel about Serena, from her being trapped in the house by the wizard, which we never see, through her relationship centuries later with the couple that free her, to, what I would hope would be something greater for her.
I can hope at least.
Much better written and I would ask the author to go back and reedit or rewrite the first story to make it as good as the second is.
Four out of five pitchforks.
Much better read, much better story.
