Publisher's Summary

Sherman had always thought high school was a real drag. He was looking forward to finishing his senior year so that he could coast through college, get a day job, and spend the rest of his life playing video games.

He is used to seeing angels, but when a new girl transfers into his AP physics class, he thinks demons might be more his style.

When his innocent crush leads him to the basement, he finds out that his school is exactly the kind of hellhole he always thought it was; only now he'll be lucky to escape before they eat his soul.

wow this is entertaining! one nerdy guy that no one can remember well and lots of mythological monster action. some violence and no adult content. I was cracking up over the way Sherman looks at things. short but a great way to distract yourself

Not Good Enough to buy the next book

Maybe there are people who love this "novel" but it's more like a short story about an 18 year old who is only interesting because he can see past glamour. He is written so stereotypically that it was impossible to identify with him. I did all the things he talked about and liked most of the same things growing up but still c opulent identify with him. the plot is interesting but not enough to get the next book in the series. The narrator nails the protagonist... but the protagonist is a two dimensional caricature of people I knew in high school.

Succubus! Hell High.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No.

Would you ever listen to anything by Michael-Scott Earle again?

Maybe. He wrote well, if slightly childishly. This novel had quite a young writing voice which I found quite hard to accept.

Did David Dietz do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes. Dietz was a very good narrator.

Was Succubus! worth the listening time?

Not really.

Any additional comments?

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

When I first saw the plot for this, I thought it would be brilliant, but instead I found it rather lacking; the main character comes across as a stereotypical nerd and is pretty much suffering a case of insta-love with the main female character. Though I feel the insta-love sorta qualifies him for the plot twist at the end. Like seriously dude. She's a succubus. And she never got your name right. Think with your brain for like half a page of this book.

Also the main plot device is never explained and that really bugs me.

I really wanted to like this book... but I just couldn't.

Hysterical book and great narrating!

Sherman is a geeky senior in HS with a crush on Charlotte, who is a good witch of sorts. Somehow spirits are unleashed and the result is pure chaos in the school building. Its a sweet, hapless story that ended too soon. Narrator David Dietz really put his energy into the voices. Great story!

cool idea for the story.

just really loathe the way the mc acts like an annoying sidekick with all the dumb questions at the worst timing. the only thing I dislike more than that is the narrator's shrill and nasally voice he used for the mc. I thought the mc is supposed to continue the story through their actions not the mc's gf dragging a spineless dweeb.

Short, but funny

I had enjoyed Sherman's character and look forward to hearing how his adventure continues in Satan.

Mindless fun, get it on sale

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Not really, I got it on sale and while it is good, each part of the series is short, and not worth the price asked per book.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Length. The book has no pacing for a rather fun concept.

Which character – as performed by David Dietz – was your favorite?

Sherman was actually fun, David Dietz really got into it, and I have to say that the performance greatly improved the book.

Could you see Succubus! being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Not enough to go on for a book or movie.

Any additional comments?

The book has a great idea, with nothing explored or fleshed out. It's fun escapism, that just isn't worth the asking price. At 1.5 hours, it rushes to the end, when I think it would be fun to explore some of the aspects of the MC's life before we are just thrown to the end.

Short and fun

Brief experience but comical and fun. I actually went ahead and listened to the other books and they were also enjoyable.
