My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Love Celia Aarons work and as what I have read previously is of a contemporary nature (The Acquisition series) I was excited to see what she would produce in regards to a paranormal offering.
“Incubus” was a really great start to a new series.
It did initially take me a short while to get into the groove with this, but when I did this was magic in motion.
I really do feel this may have been more to do with the fact that I have not read this genre for a while so I was a bit out of whack overall.
So anyway incubus is about Roth de Lis an Incubus and Lilah, once the warrior of the goddess Artemis, expelled from her home on Mount Olympus after falling for and succumbing to the charms of a male.
Lilah will do anything to earn her place back at her goddesses side.
Including making a deal with the god of war Ares (despite him being a psychotic nutter) to bring him said Incubus, Roth de Lis. using herself as collateral (so not smart.)
After locating and tricking her way into Roth’s home which he shares with his delightful butler a jealous harpy of a succubus and an enchanting Nymph and With a totally biased stereotypical opinion of Roth, Lilah soon learns her preconceptions regarding the incubus are way off base.
So I found Incubus to be a delightful tale that once I got into my stride made for some very easy enjoyable reading our two main characters were both extremely likeable and along the way, we are also introduced to some very intriguing secondary players.
This was so very different from what I have read of this author previously and let me just say, Celia Aaron, can so do paranormal, she didn’t disappoint here and she so rocked this genre, throwing the ball right out of the field.
I also was really digging the fall hook line and sinker for each over vibe that Incubus gave off it made for such a refreshing change.
Don’t get me wrong this is no insta-love tale but when these two eventually connect I got tingles down to my toes, every time Roth whispered Carissima I melted into a puddle of goo.
And when he chased after Lilah wanting to save her well let’s just say my heart was pitter-pattering like a big ole softie of a girl. (which I so am )
So it’s safe to say, I have absolutely no problem recommending this to my fellow paranormal lovers.
Overall I found this to be a really enjoyable and positive experience and I really hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Should just mention that Incubus is available free on KU.
