The story flashes back and forth between present day x-succubus on the run story and past life as a succubus that got her into this predicament. While the story is entertaining and different the flashback thing every other chapter was getting kind of annoying. Just tell us what happened in her past to lead up to this and then we can get along with the current story.
However that said, Jezebel does have a good time getting herself into trouble and having to leave her great job as a succubus, because under the new regime and the requisite re-organization under the new management she now hates her new job which she also has no talent for. It's never really explained why the queen has such a grudge against her, but not really all that important to the story. Her solution, leave. Of course new managament does not really take that solution well and sends all sorts of evil bounty hunters after her. Next step in Jezebel's escape plan, get a witch to change her into a human so evil types can't track her. The only problem with this is as a human she really can't use her "evil" powers or evil will know where she is again. Do you know how juch succubusi depend on their powers to do everything? So starts the adventure of figuring out how to survive as a human, get a job (strip club of course) and earn money, find a place to live, shopping for a wardrobe, loving this eating thing, etc. etc. Then there's the distraction of meeting a great looking guy thing who's interested in her, but not in the normal succubus way it seems. That just adds to her new human emotional turmoil while she trys to stay alive and not get caught by the big evil and dragged back to the big evil, the Pit with the lae of fire and all.
It's definitely a different twist on a story and a fun read.
The story started off with the action right away. Even though there was movement forward in the book, I had felt it was a little slow moving. But, by the time I hit half way through the book we were of full speed forward. This is a great start to a series. The world is set, both in mortal earth and in hell.
I enjoyed the connection with Jezebel and Paul. The teasing and tension between them was great from the moment they met. There is definitely romance in this story, as Jezebel takes a job as a stripper and with the feel from her and Paul. There are a few great secondary characters added in the book whom could be expanded on greatly in future books and I look forward to seeing more of. There is a complete story here and there are setting planted for the future books. Very nicely done.
However, in the end of the book I felt there was a moral to be seen. I felt there are things we have done in which maybe as a whole we could change and there is hope for us all.
I am looking forward to reading more of this series to see where Jezebel will be and what she will do.
