Book Review: Incubus (The Incubus Saga Book 1) by Amanda Meuwissen

Nathan Grier's life is anything but normal, what with he and his changeling brother, Jim, being continuously hunted by fae hunters. But then Nathan ends up marked by dark fae with a bounty on his head, Jim's powers start emerging, and, despite previously being attracted to women, Nathan finds himself having feelings for the very male Sasha, the incubus the two brothers must turn to for help. Now Nathan has a whole new struggle as he navigates the waters of his newfound attraction, but it won't matter if the three of them can't get Nathan's mark removed before it kills him or drags him into permanent slavery in the fae realm of the Veil.

This was one of those books that just called to me and seemed like something I would love, and I’m so glad I trusted my instincts because they were so right! I devoured this first book, then immediately devoured the next one, then waited an agonizing five months for the third one and re-read them all back to back, not wanting to miss a single detail.

The best thing about these books was the emotion. Every single scene, every single word, had more emotion behind it than I even thought possible. And although Nathan and Sasha’s romance was the crowning feature, the emotion wasn’t just about that or about them. It was also about sibling/family relationships, friendships, side characters’ relationships, each of the characters’ pasts, their worries for the future, inner demons, obstacles popping up along the way, and more.

Speaking of Nathan and Sasha’s relationship though… Sometimes it had me grinning like a fool. Other times it had me tearing up. But it was always adorable and always the kind of romance that will ruin you for all future relationships because you will never have one that perfect! (And you won’t find any alpha males here, just communication, balance, and two people who love each other).

As for the characters themselves, I don’t think I’ve ever loved so many characters in one book before. Especially Sasha, who I will totally take if Nathan doesn’t want him ;-) He was playful, fun, loving, and open. He had some angst and sadness from his past, but he wasn’t the typical tortured hero. Not to mention his incubus form sounded absolutely beautiful!

Anyway, I’m done gushing. This was a swoon-worthy M/M paranormal with lovable characters that I truly enjoyed reading!

Book Blurb

Nathan only ever wanted a normal life, but for him, life, family, and love are anything but normal.

On the other side of the Veil, dark and light fae exist outside the knowledge of most humans. Nathan Grier was born human, but his twin brother Jim is a changeling. On the run since they were children, time for both of them is running out. Turning to fae hunter Sasha Kelly for help, Nathan must soon face his growing feelings for the other man while trying to save himself and his brother from a fate worse than death.

This series is an Urban Paranormal Fantasy/Gay Romance story that kicks off the beginning of an epic trilogy of love, family, and a fight to save the world.

    I don’t think I can accurately express what a treat it was to see these reviews come through this weekend. I am beside myself with how you have humbled me with your thoughtful commentary and joy over this series, something I have already been near tears over now that it has come to a close. Thank you so much! I cannot wait to spread these reviews around and share them with others. I am so glad you enjoyed the books from start to finish.

    Thank you for taking the time to comment! I’m so glad I could make your day. One of the reasons I started this blog is because I believe people deserve to know when something they’ve done has had a positive impact on others (especially something that takes as much work as writing). These books deserve to be read, just doing my part to make sure they are :-)
