If you love bad boys, or Zane, the bad vampire in Jackie's life, you'll enjoy this beautiful story. Zane had to give up the love of his life, Jackie. He has now gone back to the Queen of Vampires to serve her and is staying away from Jackie, his succubus, while knowing that Noah, the gorgeous sexy fallen angel she know completely belongs to.

But you have to love a bad guy, or bad vampire, with a heart. He truly misses her, thinks of her constantly, and re

I love the Succubus Diaries series by Jill Myles and I can not wait for the 3rd book, My Fair Succubi. Zane's Tales takes place after Succubi Likes It Hot. Zane is dealing with the consequences of giving up Jackie. He is struggling with the separation but he knows that it's best if he wants to keep Jackie safe. He's now back underneath the Queen's thumb and it doesn't look like there's a way for him to get out from under it. The ending made me fall even more in love with Zane. It broke my heart. ...more
Julie Read Our Lips! Book Review Blog
Zane’s Tale is a short read – about 19 pages – and gives us an insight to Zane’s point of view as he’s watching Jackie from afar.

In reading the last book, Succubi Like It Hot, Zane makes a sacrifice towards the end of the book, and leaves Jackie with Noah to save her from the evil clutches of his vampire Queen.

In Zane’s Tale – Jackie has moved in with Noah and she is busy packing for the archeological dig she and Noah are going to in Mexico. It’s nighttime and Noah is out for the night – leaving

Be still my heart, this novella was only 12 pages or so but it still packed enough for my heart to break over Zane. I love him, Team Zane!

This story takes place between book 2 and 3 and he has given up Jackie but in this we see how tormented he is because he had to give her up. And deep his love for her is. It is quite heartbreaking and it makes me love him all the more (and think Noah is so boring and that she should dump him).

A short tale but an insight into Zane's heart that you do not want t

If this story isn't a short tale of selfless love, I'm not sure what is.

My heart was already breaking for Zane and his sacrifice he has made for the woman he loves and now the evil Queen Bitch had to destroy his beautiful wings too! :(

This was sad, but it caused me to be even more Obsessed love him even more.

cerita pendek yg sangat menyayat hati ihik ihik......

ini cerita setelah buku 2 setelah zane mengatakan pada jackie bahwa mereka tidak akan bisa bertemu kembali.....

duhhh bener deh kalo yg tadinya milih jackie dengan noah setelah baca zane's tale ini pasti ga akan begitu kekeuh lagi jackie dengan noah.

zane memang vampire, fallen angel yg menjual jiwanya demi mendapatkan sayapnya tapi dia benar2 mencintai jackie.
demi jackie dia menyerahkan kebebasannya sendiri.
dia rela jadi yg tertindas pdhl zane

Short and Useless. While I enjoyed the series I don't see that this added any significant value. If a reader is following the series then we already know that Zane is more than likely going to pay for his choices. Glad it was free. If not I don't think I would have been too happy considering it's not all that insightful as to the story of Zane.

This book comes in between books two and three of the Succubus Diaries and shows where Zane was when he stepped aside to let Jackie pursue her archaeological dreams with Noah by her side. Since the other books are all told from Jackie's perspective, we don't get to see much about where Zane and Noah are when they are not a part of her life. It brought a more human element to his character and brought forward more of his inner struggles. This was a very quick read, good for one sitting. While I'v ...more

Read on my Nook App on my computer in short order and totally loved this very poignant look into what happens in between "Succubi Like It Hot-Succubus Diaries #2" and "My Fair Succubi-Succubus Diaries #3" releasing end of December....
Zane has left Jackie and returned to serve his Vampire Queen Nitocris, and he is not thrilled to be home!
This novella details a period in time where for her safety Zane has abandoned Jackie and she has no recourse but to return to her other Master Noah... This story

Zane... short story

How cool to see what's going on in Zane's mind.
I absolutely LOVE him and his black wings... *sigh*
HATE the bitch queen though!!

On to book 3!

Intriguing book. I like the series. The two girls sometimes annoy me as they seem a bit clueless. I like the the strong male characters.

I picked this story for two reasons, one I needed a Z title for the A-Z Book Challenge and two I wanted to see if I would like to read the authors succubus stories.

The writing style was good. I got an immediate feel for both the character Zane, and his world. I thought he was an interesting character and the story nicely illustrated a day in the life of Zane the Vampire.

After saying all that, I won't be picking up any of the Succubus books. I didn't like the glimpse of Jackie and while Zane was

Really enjoyed this short story in the Succubus Diaries series!

Zane's Tale takes place in between Succubi Like It Hot and My Fair Succubi, and really gives the reader an inside look at Zane and how he's coping with his separation from Jackie.

I cannot wait until the next book comes out in 2011!

I don't think I've come across a short story that has moved me the way this one did. Wow what a GREAT story. My heart still aches and my stomach still turns when I think about this book. As much as I hate what happens in this book, it was still very nice to see this side of Zane!!! And if you haven't already connected to Zane's character (as if anyone hasn't) you will definetely be drawn to him when you're done with this short story. Jill Myles has truly outdone herself with this story!

Oh left and returned to that stupid Queen of yours and now you're nothing but a pawn in her game!

This was a super short story so really there's not too much to say but of course I loved it! It made me love Zane even more than I already did! I hurt for him...he's in such pain being away from Jackie! =( All I can say is we BETTER see him in My Fair Succubi (I dont think Jill could keep him away for long)!

This world had a lot of potential, but I wasn't sure about it from just this short story. A lot of the rules weren't exactly clear-- as to how things work-- but I suppose they were clear enough I could follow the story. I just think if there had been more explanations I would have been able to get into the story more. Overall, though, it was an interesting story and I would read more from the author if the opportunity arouse.

For this to be a short story, it was very well written. Poor Zane, he has gave up Jackie and now she is Noah's; but Zane is having a tought time with dealing with the decision. Zane is a total masterpiece, he is the bad guy; but he plays it so well (because deep down, bad guys have feelings too). This book is basically about his feelings for Jackie and how he must submit to the vampire queen to keep his love safe.
This still remains one of my favorite series. Very short story that is told from Zane's POV. If you've read the second book, you know the choice Zane is forced to make in order to keep Jackie safe. This novella is a reminder of that and points out how tough it is for both Zane and Jackie to be living that way. Nitocris is also in this novella and it just hammers home what an evil wench she truly is.
If you're just looking for a paranormal short story featuring the inevitable tortured paranormal longing for the girl of his dreams that he somehow can't have, this should do the trick.

I kept waiting for something a bit creative, but it never came.

I liked the ending, but I was hoping the story would be about how zane became a vampire instead of some short story were he's pinning for the pin head, Jackie. I haven't seen a better example of a whipped male since reading the anita blake series. Thank you for ruining my zane envy (I might recover but I am so imagining him with a different female protagonist, if you can even call her that).
