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

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.

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.

An unexpected but good surprise

I picked up this book as something quick to listen to between two larger audio books. I figured I would listen a few minutes at a time, but I just ended up listening to the whole thing. I think I picked it up for under $5 and it was worth the risk.

The story itself centers on a senior in high school and the things he sees in that high school. The story involves monsters, demons, devils and a hot succubus girl. I will admit, about 10 minutes into the story I was hooked and found myself enjoying it.

The ending is too abrupt (but it was at a stopping point). This is to be expected since it is only a 90 minute book. I just found out that there are two more books that are about 3 times the size of this book (over four hours each). I will end up picking those up.

too short but a fantastic world

The book is a short one, but its worth the ride. The other two books are just as good, or even better. You probably won't fall in love with the protaganist, but that's only because he`s easy to forget .... what was his name again? (read the book, you'll understand the joke)

_spoilers_

Sherman is a nerd who has a crush on the pretty New student. The catch? She's a succubus! Even more unusual? Sherman can SEE it. in fact he can see every monster for what they are. now his world is being turned upside down and inside out!

Didnt realize this was a light novel

disappointed by the short length, waste of money. I'm sure the whole series could be compressed into 1 book

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.
