Succubus Academy" is the third book in the "Reluctant Succubus" series from Jacqueline Sweet and cleverly builds on the mesmerising tale of Sarah Mayhew. The story follows on from "A Moment on the Lips" and "Succubus Kissing Booth", in which we were introduced to the unhappy Sarah, who makes a deal with a demon to get the body of her dreams. Transformed into an indescribably hot young woman she discovers that the quid pro quo is an insatiable hunger for sex, which gets her into incredibly erotic, but incredibly dangerous situations. At the beginning of "Succubus Academy" Sarah has survived the San Francisco "kissing booth orgy", but finds that the erotic darkness within her is beginning to consume and destroy her. Studying her options with the demon, No Name and her sex slave boyfriend Alec, Sarah learns about the dark world of Erebus and the Succubus queen, Tera who rules over the Palace of Sighs - the erstwhile Succubus Academy. Despite the dangers of Erebus, Sarah travels to the Palace to learn from Tera how to contain and master the overwhelming darkness within her. To do this, however, she will have to survive the Academy and the many dark, depraved erotic challenges it presents. If the first two books that introduced Sarah and put the building blocks of her world together were carefully developed pieces of world-building, "Succubus Academy" is an explosion of gleeful abandonment as Sarah begins to understand the extent of her powers and goes through any number of wild, unrestrained experiences at the Academy. Both the Academy and Erebus are great creations. The Academy bursts with a myriad of different, compelling, seductive Succubi, a myriad of rooms for the Succubi to hone their wild talents and a myriad of bizarre, frantic sexual situations. Erebus is written as a strange, dark, alien and Lovecraftian world, with the author painting marvellous pictures in superbly descriptive passages. This part of the story reminded me very much of Lovecraft tales such as "The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath” and "Through the Gates of the Silver Key". And there can be no higher recommendation than that. Sarah's story and plight remains compelling; terrifying and beautiful at the same time. She continues to grow and develop as a character as does her wild, sexual hunger and all-consuming prowess. The introduction of the mysterious Tera brings a new dynamic and a whole set of new questions and mysteries. The Queen and the various characters attending the Succubus Academy opens future potential for any number of plot developments and strands, with No Name and Alec also showing some good development over the course of the story. Jacqueline Sweet's writing is powerful, urgent and descriptive, perfectly in tune with the wild and thrilling story being told. She shows supremely imaginative touches, while building a strangely erotic new fantasy world and delivering sex scenes that are jaw-droppingly hot and jaw-droppingly weird all at the same time. The story ends on a cliff-hanger and I look forward to the next book, tentatively called "The Making Out War", in what is one of the most imaginative, erotic and compelling serials presently being published.
