Publisher’s Description: Molly doesn’t look her age. In fact, Molly never will, having already been around for centuries with no signs of wear. That’s because Molly is a succubus—not demonic, but cursed. A victim rather than victimizer—and more than sympathetic to the gorgeous and naked man she finds hiding in the woods. Unlike Molly though, he has no memory of his past—only that he’s being hunted for reasons he can’t explain. Now they must both try and solve the riddle of his origin before his past—or even hers—reaches out of the darkness to destroy them.

Originally Human is a free download from Graphic Audio, introducing you both to the GraphicAudio style and to the World of the Lupi series. This short story (around two hours long) takes place shortly after the events of Tempting Danger (World of the Lupi Book 1).

I liked this story when I first read it a few years ago. At heart, it’s a mystery story — where did the gorgeous amnesiac come from and why are people after him? Because this is a romance story, one of the main characters is, of course, a succubus so there is an excuse for attraction and sex. Though the primary characters don’t appear in the series for a while, the events of this story have repercussions in Mortal Danger.

The GraphicAudio style made the story quite rich. I love hearing the sound of ocean waves in the background, sound effects when magic is used, and different voice actors for the characters. There *is* a sex scene in this story, which is acted out audibly and a bit awkward to hear — I can’t imagine how awkward it must have been to record!

Overall, a good story and a decent introduction to both the World of the Lupi and GraphicAudio. If you’re interested in either, I’d give this a try.

I’m going to be reviewing all of the World of the Lupi books in the Graphic Audio format, so stay tuned for more!
